Children Have No Need For A Father

Single women and lesbian couples won landmark parental rights last night as MPs voted to remove the requirement that fertility clinics consider a child’s need for a father.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill will replace the rule with a “need for supportive parenting” after opponents were defeated in two votes by unexpectedly wide margins.

The Government had been prepared for defeat but won the free votes by majorities of 75 and 68. The decisions mean that the legislation will grant the most significant extension to homosexual family rights since gay adoption was sanctioned.


The Government has now won all four of the measures on which it agreed to grant Labour MPs a free vote. Moves to allow the creation of hybrid embryos for medical research, and “saviour siblings” screened as suitable tissue donors for sick children, were passed by large majorities on Monday.

Here is one of the comments posted in regards to this article: Good decision, great for singles who can't find men to have kids with. Unless women in their 20's start dateing men in their 40's the dream of a nuclear family is nonexistent. Men in their 20's are selfish, busy reading Loaded and Nuts than creating mature and stable relationships to have kids in.

Some questions:
-Do you agree with the majority of vote casters?
-What are your thoughts concerning "saviour sibliings"?
-Do you agree with the commentor? Please explain.
-Do you think that children benefit from a father/mother family as opposed to a mother or mother/mother (lesbian) family?
-Why is the (U.K.) government even casting votes on such things as this?
-Are making hybrid embryos a "moral endeavor" as stated by Brown?

No. This is another bogus claim that our society is using to dignifiy it's desire to live immorally. The purpose that God have (I believe) in having the "nuclear" family, was for the child to have male and female interaction to immitate and learn from. When a child is reared in a homosexual household their comprehensiong of how someone that is the opposite sex of their parents is lowered and suffers. Therefore we have children joining our community that are straight, yet have no ideas when type of person to look for in the opposite sex for a partner because they've never been acclamated to that.

"Savior Siblings"...great idea, as long as you weren't creating an actual human being. I kind of think that's God's job, not ours. I believe it's an underminding of God's authority. Our bodies are made to be temporary...our society needs to learn that and deal with it. It doesn't make death easier, but it makes it inevitable and understandable.

And the comment that was made about women having to marry 40 year olds...well, it sounds like someone that's been burned by an immature man. Well, join the club, but that doesn't mean all men are that way. Not to mention that we have our society to thank for that. If our society would put more focus on family and God and less on entertainment then maybe our world wouldn't be full of 30 year old 15 year olds. Seventy years ago 18 year old men were working full time jobs and having families and the divorce rate was WAY lower than it is now. It's our societies effect on the men in our world that is ruining our worlds perception of a man.

I don't think I could have said it any better. Good synopsis.
