Response to people please
It was just hearsay kind of stuff while lurking on some other board, but I remember reading that this was a problem for a US woman who was living in Israel, etc. And I think there was a problem trying to get a passport, etc. At first, everyone was jumping to conclusions and saying that it didn't sound right, etc. But after someone looked into it, it was actually a problem and they needed to get all of these attorneys involved, etc. in both states, etc. Whereas I don't think this applies to most people, there are a handful, possibly yourself included, where maybe this is a problem. Also, I think that not everyone is aware of this law, so it might be the type of situation where it "only matters if you get caught", so to speak, once you are applying for the passport. Not a comfort to the women overseas. Now, if the DH's sperm is used, I don't think it would be a problem, right? I think it is mostly an issue for those using DE/DS. To be honest, I didn't give it that much thought until you just brought this up again. But, it is a good warning to those living overseas. Thanks for bringing this up.
