Vancouver baby first to have three legal parents

In a first for British Columbia, a three-month-old baby girl born in Vancouver has three people, her biological father and a lesbian couple, listed as her parents on her birth certificate, reports LifeSiteNews.

British Columbia’s new Family Law Act, which came into force last year, allowed a child to have three parents listed on the birth certificate. The law requires a prior written agreement between the birth mother, her spouse or partner, and the donor.

Birth mother Danielle Wiley, along with her lesbian "wife" Anna Richards, drew up such an agreement with Shawn Kangro. Wiley told the National Post she used Kangro's sperm to impregnate herself using a syringe and gave birth to a girl, who they named Della, on October 23, 2013.

Although B.C. is the first province to legalize having more than 2 people listed as parents on a birth certificate, an Ontario court ruled in 2006 that a five-year-old boy had three legal parents - his father, mother, and a lesbian partner - which made him the first official three-parent child in Canada.

On January 2, 2006, the Ontario Court of Appeal overturned a lower court ruling by granting the boy’s father, biological mother and the mother’s lesbian partner equal rights and responsibilities under law.

A lower court ruling on the case in 2003 said the Ontario Children’s Law Reform Act could not be interpreted as recognizing more than two persons as parents by birth or adoption.

In that ruling, Justice David Aston said at the time that allowing more than two parents “might open the floodgates to similar claims from step-parents or members of the child’s extended family.”
