Virginia and Vermont are currently engaged in a murky legal battle in an attempt to answer a question that strikes at the very heart of the gay marriage debate: Does 6-year-old Isabella Miller have two mommies?
Her biological mother, Lisa Miller, now a Christian living in Lynchburg, Va., says “no.” Miller conceived Isabella through donor sperm in 2002 while joined in a civil union with her former partner, Janet Jenkins, who is unrelated to Isabella and never sought to legally adopt her as a daughter. Miller and her Liberty Counsel attorneys argue Virginia’s marriage laws mean Jenkins should not be granted any rights as a parent.
