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.

How many times does our national media have to get it wrong before the “adults” in the #NeverTrump movement pause for even a single breath before jumping into their Hot Take Mobiles? The song is always the same… Whenever an anti-Trump story breaks, as soon as the marching orders come down from their media masters, these Vichy Conservatives are the first to run amok, to spread far and wide what almost always ends up being fake news. Even though history has time and again proven that a mature amount of skepticism is warranted, #NeverTrump is the first to spew mindless hate on cable

A group of activists declared “independence” for the state of “New California” on Monday, in an attempt to leave California’s liberal coastal enclaves and create a 51st U.S. state out of the remainder of the Golden State. “The current state of California has become governed by a tyranny,” according to a document published by the group. The document continues (original emphasis): Therefore the United States Declaration of Independence of 1776, the Constitution as adapted in 1783 by the Congress of the United States of America, the Alta California Declaration of Independence of 1836, the Sonoma Proclamation of 1846, and the

It seems someone at CBS thought it was a good idea to send correspondent Mark Phillips all the way to Germany and do a full report about the Berlin Wall just to suggest that all walls are bad, and therefore undermine President Donald Trump´s push for a border wall, as well as Israel´s security barrier which has likely saved thousands from being murdered by suicide bombers. On Monday´s CBS Evening News, substitute anchor Jericka Duncan alluded to Trump´s wall proposal, and then set up the piece by hinting that the report might prove walls between countries to be ineffective:

On December 21, 2017 the Department of Justice issued a press release, “Departments of Justice and Homeland Security Release Data on Incarcerated Aliens—94 Percent of All Confirmed Aliens in DOJ Custody Are Unlawfully Present.” The initial statistic cited in the title of that DOJ press release shows that there is a truly significant distinction to be drawn between aliens who are lawfully present in the United States and aliens who are illegally present in the United States, either because they have entered the United States illegally or they have violated the terms of admission after entering the United States via the

President Trump’s end year remarks to the New York Times acerbically summed up his relationship with the media. “I’m going to win another four years… because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there.” The answering outburst of rage and contempt from the media burned all the hotter because the statement was not only intentionally provocative; it was also true. The media has never been able to quit Trump. Its conviction that it can destroy him through coverage has repeatedly proven false. But that hasn’t stopped the media from throwing more coverage at him.

There’s been a great deal of news coverage about allegations of collusion between President Trump and Russia; much of the reporting apparently accurate and some of it not. Less attention has been given to concurrent investigations that seem to be claiming scalps even if indirectly. The investigations into the investigators include Congressional inquiries and a multi-faceted probe launched by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz surrounding the FBI decision not to prosecute Clinton. Specifically, Horowitz—who was appointed by President Obama—said he’s reviewing: Allegations that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik should have recused themselves.

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade.

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents.
