The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has agreed to issue birth certificates for two same-sex couples.
In both cases, the women had children through artificial insemination.
Kansas law says a married couple can both be listed on the birth certificate for a child born through artificial insemination, but KDHE initially declined to list two women as the parents.
KDHE spokesperson Sara Belfry says they issued the certificates after reviewing applicable laws and court orders. She says they will issue birth certificates in the future to same-sex couples.
