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.

Comments:
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

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.

The Left’s Trump-Putin Meltdown

In a press conference with Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump refused to validate the findings of a deeply corrupt and compromised intelligence community that has been working assiduously since before he was even elected to discredit and destroy him, and now the sky is falling. Barack Obama’s CIA director John Brennan, who calls himself a “nonpartisan American” but who voted for Communist Party candidate Gus Hall for President in 1976, tweeted in all-out hysterical mode: “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’

"This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that “Ambition must ... counteract ambition.” All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall.

As an opinion columnist for Business Insider until my resignation Thursday, I had grown accustomed to strong reactions from readers when I wrote about Hamas (I´m not a fan) or the problems with accusations of cultural appropriation. But I didn´t see this one coming. Commenting on recent criticism of actress Scarlett Johansson for taking a movie role that called on her to portray a transgender man, I made the commonsensical and, I admit, not particularly original observation that actors specialize in make-believe and ought to be allowed to take any jobs they like.

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Sen.

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen.

When it comes to race and crime or even racially charged incidents, not all headlines are created equal. "Woman beats a 91-year-old Mexican man with a brick, tells him to ‘go back to your country,’" read last Monday’s Washington Post headline about the brutal anti-Hispanic hate-crime against Rodolfo Rodriguez. Rodriguez had suffered two broken ribs and a broken cheekbone after accidentally bumping into a child while walking on a sidewalk and being repeatedly attacked by the child´s concrete-brick wielding mother. And if that wasn´t enough, the Post reports, several other "young men" came over and kicked the 91-year-old while he was down. "Go

But the city is fast becoming one of the worst places in the U.S. to live. The homeless problem is out of control. Experts say it “could exceed some of the dirtiest slums in the world.” There are around 7,500 homeless people in the city. Human feces is strewn across public areas.

At last week’s NATO meeting in Brussels, Donald Trump took the European members to the woodshed. Using his customary blunt straight-talk abhorred by diplo-sophists, he accused the “delinquent” allies of treating the U.S. like “schmucks” and America like a “piggy bank” by not paying their fair share of NATO’s costs. And he shocked them further by saying they shouldn’t wait till 2024 to reach the goal of spending 2% of GDP on their militaries, but get it done now. Then he literally doubled-down by saying they should be paying 4%. Our free-riding allies need this straight talk. But more important, everybody

Priscilla Celestine held on to that dream for years, long after the state of Texas took the children — all younger than 6 at the time — and sent them 1,300 miles away to live in a Minnesota town she didn’t know, in a home she didn’t know with a family she didn’t know.

The character that James Comey is trying to play. A man so upright that he combs his hair every hour. But Strzok couldn´t help that smirk. Every time he clashed with the impotent House Republicans barraging him with questions that he dodged or refused to answer, the smirk crept over his face and into his voice.

Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm

JOHANNESBURG - Barack Obama said on Tuesday the world should resist cynicism over the rise of strongmen, in an apparent reference to populist leaders who hold power in a number of countries. The Democratic former U.S. president did not name his Republican successor, Donald Trump, but the speech was among the most pointed comments he has made about politics since leaving office in January 2017.
