America continues to fall behind, in my eyes. To deny US citizenship to those twins is ridiculous! I am guessing that no father is listed on the birth certificate. They are maybe better off not ‘being’ Americans. If they were, the govt would feel it’s their right to tax them or at least make them file tax returns even if they never live in America…just because they are citizens.

Our government seems to have nothing better to do then deny citizenship to babies. Hey at least our economy is in great shape…

The article about the British woman not receiving maternity leave makes me really angry! Yes, leave is designed to give the woman’t body time to heal from birth but there is more than that healing at stake. Bonding with and caring for your newborns is so important during those first few weeks. I will even go as far as to say that it is even more important if you don’t give birth to the children yourself. This woman is being robbed of her right to do so just because she did not physically give birth and that’s just downright wrong. This saddens me.

No citizenship for innocent babies but keep piling in the illegals to the welfare office…Sounds fair! This country is doomed!

Tee- I agree! I also wonder if England grants maternity leave to women who welcome their children via adoption. I know the U.S. does (or at any rate some companies here do). If England does as well, then it REALLY baffles me that they denied this woman who became a mother via surrogate maternity leave!

Anonymous, they do, and that’s why it’s so baffling.

Maternity leave is about being a MOTHER, not about pregnancy!

Anonymous, I read another article on this same story and it says that they do grant maternity leave to adoptive mothers. I don’t get it!

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
