Sofia Vergara, Frozen Embryos
and Forced Procreation

Creators Syndicate, by Mona Charen

Original Article

Posted By:Tianne, 1/13/2018 9:40:51 PM

The Supreme Court of Colorado will soon rule on whether a person has a constitutional right to not procreate. The dispute is between Drake Rooks and his ex-wife, Mandy Rooks. The couple were married in 2002. They had three children using in vitro fertilization, but were left with six frozen embryos. In 2014, they divorced. Now they are embroiled in a legal battle over what should become of those "snow babies." Mandy, 40, who reportedly always dreamed of having a large family, would like to use some or all of them to have more children. Drake, 50, says absolutely not.

As Mona Charen demonstrates, feats of technology, when not originally guided by moral rules and ethical standards, create dilemmas not easily addressed or solved.

That our courts are now in charge of deciding the fates of embryos residing in medical limbo, is an outcome that is both distressing and alarming.

there would be no problem for me in the first place. imho, i think vitro fertilization is wrong. i don´t think it´s just about babies but an opportunity for a couple, a doctor and in this case a judge, a small group of participants who want to play God. there are babies that need adopting.

I read last week where couples are adopting these "snow babies". The process of implantation, per the article, is easier and cheaper than IVF. The article featured a baby girl who was older than her mother based on conception date. It´s all so strange.

I believe IVF is immoral, yet I have a beautiful 7-year-old grandniece that is the joy of my nephew. I had hoped they would adopt. I shudder at the thought of her siblings, still frozen, with no plans by their parents to grow the family. This is the immorality; we are farming our progeny as a commodity. Life, and therefore the infusion of the soul, begins at conception. Every conceived life has the moral right to gestate in their mother’s womb, and experience life uninterrupted by a sojourn in ice.

The Catholic Church redefined their teaching on Limbo, perhaps they were wrong. It may not exist spiritually, but mankind has replicated here on earth.

"Forced procreation" is an incorrect term. When a woman decides to freeze an embryo (or several) she has already begun the process of procreation - there is nothing forced about it. It is only when she changes her mind, that unnatural complications arise.

No matter how long nor how hard they try, human beings will never be able to replicate the precise miracles of God - they should cease acting as though they already have.

If the Colorado Supreme Court grant the right to the mother to carry the Embryos to term is the father liable for child support?
Can a divorced man be held financially hostage forever after divorce?

That´s right, men are just drones to be used. Men have no rights in this Brave New World where women have the right to abort, give birth, and even rent out her uterus. It´s all "her body" after all.

We are a country striped of morality that makes Sodom and Gomorrah look innocent in comparison.

Men and women who decide to create these embryos should be financially responsible for them.
Nobody is holding anyone hostage. You agree to make ´em, you own the responsibility for them forever.
Why should anyone be free from the consequences of their own willful behavior? When you´re talking about human life, you don´t get to change your mind and whine and cry and melt like a snowflake. You shoulder your burden and you bear it.

Consider this: Non-intercourse reproductive technology is the main technical perversion which is now mainstreaming homosexual parenting.

It all fits. You have to look at the whole overarching project: the deconstruction of sex. That is, breaking apart of male and female, sex and gender, intercourse and fertility, structure and function, into fragmentary pieces, and then cobbling them together again into some different design as to ourselves seems most useful.

The artificial human reproduction technologies are morally flawed because they separate the act of marital lovemaking from the conception of the child. The underlying disability (if there is one) hasn´t been cured or healed, it hasn´t even been addressed.

My heart goes out to people who have medical fertility problems. I would urge them to seek true healing solutions which respect and restore the spousal one-flesh nature of human procreation. One place to start is Natural Procreative Technology: NaProTech


Smart approach to help infertile couples have babies via, guess what? -- sex!

My son and his wife waited until her children by a previous marriage were grown, but then he developed prostate cancer and nearly died. Thanks to IVF, my son became a father for the first time at 50. His son is the joy of his life. I think there are some problems, and no, a 40 yo woman who wants to have a big family can find another man to father her extra children.

And I´m sure she wasn´t the only one. In the USSR, Communist Cuba and other Socialist dictatorships, reporters frequently crossed the line from journalism to advocacy and then to personal involvement. The KGB had its honey traps, but usually didn´t need them. The media was happy to push their narratives. Just as it´s happy to push Iranian, Qatari and Hamas narratives today. But Politico´s take on this story would be very different if a Republican journalist had been carrying on an affair with, say, Pinochet.

“If you’ve read Marx, there’s really no reason to read Howard Zinn,” notes author Daniel Flynn, but many have read Zinn’s million-selling A People’s History of the United States. As Rutgers history professor David Greenberg notes in a 2013 New Republic article headlined “Agit-Prof,” Zinn’s famous book is “a pretty lousy piece of work.” Even so, it gets great reviews within a circle of Marxist academics such as Eric Foner, leftist rockers such as Rage Against the Machine, and actors such as Matt Damon, who in Good Will Hunting tells his psychiatrist that A People’s History will “knock you on

An English professor at California’s Fresno State is facing backlash after she posted numerous comments on Twitter expressing her delight that former first lady Barbara Bush died. Shortly after news came out about Bush’s passing, Randa Jarrar tweeted, “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F*** outta here with your nice words,” she wrote. Bush passed away Tuesday at the age of 92 after she declined further medical treatment for her failing health, opting instead for “comfort care.” The kind words about Bush, often described as “everybody’s grandmother,” had no impact

I had minimal expectations of Chappaquiddick The Movie, which opened despite the best efforts of the Kennedy family and their various retainers and enablers. I have always been revolted by the fact that Ted, after killing Mary Jo Kopechne, did not have the decency to do a John Profumo and retire from public life for the rest of his days - and I was even more revolted by the way Massachusetts voters did not have the decency to impose that choice upon him.

James Comey is a really stupid individual. Considering the legal jeopardy he must know he’s already in and with no guarantee that any political party would be likely to pardon him in the future, he has taken a plunge of absolute arrogance and nailed his future to it. Too bad it’s nailed to the legal equivalent of Jello brand gelatin. He may also count on the American people forgetting some of the most pertinent aspects of his career—which fell from its heights like a 747 with no engines, no wings, and only mountains in every direction for miles.

As the heat turns up on how the FBI handled the criminal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s mishandling of classified information, with a DOJ Inspector General report expected at anytime, former Obama administration officials are bracing themselves for impact. During congressional testimony last summer, recently fired FBI Director James Comey said under oath that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch told her to call the criminal investigation into Clinton a simple "matter."

When Storm was born seven years ago in Toronto, he or she became the most famous baby in the city. That’s because Storm’s parents announced that they were going to raise the baby as gender neutral. “If you really want to get to know someone, you don’t ask what’s between their legs,” Storm’s father, David Stocker, told The Toronto Star. In an e-mail, Storm’s parents told their friends, “We’ve decided not to share Storm’s sex for now – a tribute to freedom and choice in place of limitation.” Storm’s parents, it turns out, weren’t oddballs.

The Iraq Withdrawal The Arab Spring The Iran Deal Obama’s Iraq withdrawal turned the country over to Iran and ISIS. The tensions between the Shiite puppet regime in Baghdad (which Obama insisted on backing) and the Sunni population created a cycle of violence that reduced the country to a bloody civil war between Shiite militias and Al Qaeda in Iraq. The collapse of the multicultural Iraqi army allowed Al Qaeda in Iraq to

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t
