Birth certificates serve as proof of identity. They're also often a prerequisite to gain employment, enroll in school and determine eligibility for important benefits. Basically, they're important.

And it's also important that Puerto Rico change its transphobic policy.

Yet another one from the Supreme Court today. And not a great one.

Government must take every step necessary to ensure public money is not used to proselytize or to discriminate. And we will remain vigilant to hold federal and state governments to this obligation. As LGBTQ people and people living with HIV know all too well, there is a regrettable history in this country of people being...

"I helped pick the donor that created her life. I was there for the entire pregnancy and for the delivery, and I've been there ever since. To have to adopt her is demeaning and unfair, but thwarting a potential threat to our relationship is worth every distress and humiliation because no one matters to me more.

"We had to put guards in front of our church after the bill initially passed because there was a truck with a swastika parked across the street and just this week the Christian Knights of the KKK distributed flyers throughout the Hattiesburg area. Today’s ruling leaves us more exposed, so we will have to be more vigilant than ever before to protect our church, our families and our dignity."...
