Today's Indianapolis Star has an editorial about state senator Patricia Miller's (R - Indy) "Unauthorized Reproduction" bill that would have outlawed artificial insemination for gays and lesbians.
Our position: Legislative proposal would have strayed way too far into Hoosiers' private lives.

Thank goodness for quick retreats.

Averting what was sure to be a huge controversy, as well as an unnecessary distraction from Indiana's most pressing issues, state Sen. Patricia Miller has withdrawn a legislative proposal to regulate who could or could not use medical procedures to induce pregnancy.

The brief "never mind'' she issued this week is a welcome acknowledgment that government shouldn't have a role in telling Hoosiers whether they can seek medical help involving a decision as personal and private as becoming pregnant.
