Two gay men get “married” and want to be fathers. Obviously, there’s a problem. It takes a man and a woman to have a baby. No problem, they’ll use a surrogate. Obtaining eggs for fertilization and using a surrogate can cost from $100,000 to $200,000, but if that’s what it takes to fulfill their dream of fatherhood, it’s certainly worth it. Then there’s the question of which father’s sperm will they use? They decide to have twins so that both men will have a genetic offspring. Strange as it may sound, the twins will be biological half-sisters. Yes, the sex of the child was pre-determined along with race, skin, and eye color. The selection of the genetic mother must have been a painstaking process, ensuring optimal physical attractiveness and capabilities. Most likely, the rejected embryos were discarded like trash.
Andree Seu, in World Magazine has written, “The chickens are already coming home to roost in this grand social experiment of raising children with half a compliment of parents. If you can’t find someone in town who will talk to you about it, just wait a few years and they will be everywhere.”
In this great social experiment of secularism, children are often treated more like commodities to be used for adult fulfillment instead of the human persons they inherently are. The old saying “children should be seen and not heard” has taken on new meaning. No one seems to be interested in what the children think about our progressive ways. Yet, the voices of millions of unwanted, cast off, aborted, and abused children are beginning to be heard. Recent reports indicate that children being raised in homosexual marriages are suffering irrevocable emotional and psychological damage.

Unfortunately, the powerful gay lobby and the force of political correctness greatly hinder the dissemination of the facts, but a growing number of victims are coming of age and speaking out. For example, Dr. Robert Lopez, raised in a lesbian home bemoans “the violation of children’s rights on a massive scale, and it now is being entangled with gestational surrogacy and international adoption schemes that really amount to baby farming."
Katy Faust, writing for the Federalist also has weighed in on this issue stating, “Stories about intentional motherlessness and fatherlessness will always depict the adults as victims, and children as something owed to them. Don’t be duped. When it comes to surrogacy and third-party reproduction, it’s not the adults to whom we owe sympathy, it is the children.”

God created the family and designed it for children to benefit from both father and mother. The complimentary influences of a mom and dad are intended for the well being of children and the good of society. It’s painful to realize that we, as a nation, have legally legitimized the deprivation of children by allowing same sex couples to indulge their fantasies at the expense of a child’s need to have a mother and a father. The injustice inflicted on unwitting children strikes me deeply, both as a father and as a Christian. I only hope and pray that, as evidence continues to grow, society will respond favorably to the victims.
