The Catholic Online website reports today (July 6, 2012) that a bill now being considered by California lawmakers would allow children to have more than two parents.
The bill -- introduced by Sen. Mark Leno from San Francisco -- would amend California's current two-parent-per-child law, in order to protect the best interests of the child.
Under the proposal, families with three or more parents would share custody, financial responsibility, and visitation for the child, based on a judge's determination of each parent's wealth and the time spent with the child.
Benjamin Lopez -- a legislative analyst for the Traditional Values Coalition --blasted the bill as a new attempt to "revamp. redefine, and muddy the waters" of family structure in the drive to legalize homosexual marriage.
