Way too many kids are being left in dangerous, and unacceptable circumstances.I tend to agree with some of your points on this Aussie.
I suppose the crux of the whole argument should not be about gay parents wanting to artificially produce children, but more about how the children of this experiment will eventually be able to psychologically develop naturally knowing they were born into this world by two people who don’t love each other, and who have only combine their DNA to produce a child.
The psychological implications would be very similar to someone discovering they were grown in a bloody test tube.
I strongly believe that gay individuals or couple using the means of IVF and surrogates to produce should be illegal until an independent study is conducted to determine if there is going to be any long term psychological recourse to the offspring of these relationships.
Most of us on this forum are reasonable thinkers with life experience, and we all know there still exists a lot of anti-gay sentiment and discrimination in the wider community - hell, the countries own PM still refuses to acknowledge gay marriage. Gay bashings and the occasional murder still happens in our community, so we really have to ask the serious question as to why we would allow vulnerable children to be deliberately placed in and exposed to that danger and violence.
I personally don’t see any difference handing a vulnerable innocent child over to a “drugo” family when you have evidence that the family the child is going to are drug users - just doesn’t make any common sense.
