Lesbian Couple Files Lawsuit Against Utah for Parental Rights
A married lesbian couple filed for legal parenthood of their daughter, but was denied by the Utah Health Department. They are now suing the department for not offering equal rights to them as their heterosexual counterparts currently have.
