Perhaps nowhere is the proverb "By their fruits ye shall know them" more borne out than in the area of "assisted reproduction" and surrogacy. It is a general area where I myself at one time thought it was possible to take a pro-life position as long as one always acknowledged the humanity of the child and never went along with deliberate destruction of unborn children from the embryonic stage onwards.
But after further thought I eventually came to the conclusion that deliberately conceiving children in laboratories or in any manner outside of marriage, even asexually, is intrinsically wrong. The fruits of assisted reproduction and surrogacy were part of what got me to take a second look, though the final conclusion is supported philosophically.
Here is one of those evil fruits.
It would be difficult to exaggerate how wicked this is. This child was conceived, apparently by his biological mother (artificial insemination? sex with a boyfriend?), with the intent that he would be adopted by an unrelated lesbian couple. They assured the mother that they wanted this child. Meanwhile, the lesbians split up and it turns out that the baby has a disability--a hernia of the bowel into the abdomen, usually correctable by surgery.
So now Rosie doesn't want the baby anymore. It's damaged goods.
Who knows what is going to happen to the baby now. The loving bio-mother says she was going to have an abortion if Rosie-n-friend weren't "on board," even before she knew the baby was disabled. I can't discover from available news stories whether she's going to kill the baby now or not.
This child is being treated like unwanted zucchini. "Grew more in my garden this year than I can use. Do you want some? Otherwise I'm just going to throw it out, so let me know, 'k?"
The depravity of treating children as products is thus revealed in all its ugliness. You cannot manufacture children, in the womb or out of it, as products "intended" for other people without this type of thing eventually happening, because the entire approach to conception as baby-making is flat wrong.
God protect this unborn child.
This looks like an interesting organization.
