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.

Need more evidence that there are two Americas? Here: Left-wing hatred of Melania Trump is inversely proportional to flyover admiration for the first lady. In just the last month, late-night clown Jimmy Kimmel mocked Trump’s Slovenian accent, CNN contributor April Ryan attacked her as “not culturally American,” former Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines derided her genteel presence at former [first lady Barbara Bush’s] funeral, and horror writer Stephen King snickered at her hospitalization this week for kidney surgery.

Former FBI director James Comey likened U.S. President Donald Trump to a self-serving Mafia boss Thursday during a talk in which he defended the decision to reopen the Hillary Clinton email investigation just days before the 2016 vote. Speaking in Toronto, Comey lamented the current state of American politics, suggesting truth has all but disappeared from public discourse. “Ethical leadership is about having external reference points. Near as I can tell, this president only has one reference point and it is internal,” Comey said during a conversation with bookstore executive Heather Reisman. “That’s very similar to a Cosa

Leftist billionaire George Soros is injecting big money into a San Diego district attorney race as part of his larger effort to install extremist prosecutors across America who will refuse to enforce inconvenient laws that liberals and progressives don’t like. Soros, who turns 88 in August, has been underwriting district attorney races across America in an effort to dismantle the criminal justice system, empty the prisons, and sabotage the enforcement of immigration laws. Soros supports state and local efforts to resist U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and wants to cripple police in order to advance the neo-Marxist abstraction known as

No, Eric Schneiderman’s disgraced exit should not open the door for Hillary Clinton to challenge President Donald Trump as the next attorney general of the Empire State, despite the trial balloons going up from loyal Clintonistas in the media and the geriatric wing of the Democratic Party. Instead, the vacuum created by Schneiderman’s abrupt departure and the fact that his predecessor as attorney general, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, did little to attack corruption or boost the private sector, may usher in a true contest of constructive ideas inside New York at a time that a real New Yorker in the White House

It was one of the Clinton administration´s biggest counterterrorism successes. Just weeks after al-Qaida terrorists trained by Iran blew up U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, Gina Haspel´s phone rang in the middle of the night. She was in her final weeks as station chief in what the CIA describes as an "exotic and tumultuous capital" in central Eurasia, and intelligence had just emerged that two senior al-Qaida associates linked to the embassy bombings were on their way to the country where she was stationed. Haspel swung into action, devising an operation to capture the terrorists. She worked

Imagine this scenario: A parochial high school offers an optional, recreational program for its students. As a precondition, the school issues a dress code for all participants. The school announces plans to provide, at its own expense, a means for bringing into compliance those students who arrive in violation of the dress code, rather than simply refusing them entry to the event. In response, a number of parents and students protest what they claim is the school’s offensive and humiliating pronouncement. The school administration apologizes and walks back its intended enforcement policy. And yes, it’s all true. It happened last month at a

Before the massive growth of our welfare state, private charity was the sole option for an individual or family facing insurmountable financial difficulties or other challenges. How do we know that? There is no history of Americans dying on the streets because they could not find food or basic medical assistance. Respecting the biblical commandment to honor thy father and mother, children took care of their elderly or infirm parents. Family members and the local church also helped those who had fallen on hard times. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, charities started playing a major role. In 1887, religious leaders founded

The impossibly fickle, selective and whimsical rules of cultural appropriation are hard to keep straight. (Oops! I said "straight." Apologies to whomever. Oops, can I say "whomever?" Zimever? Verselves? Gah.) According to the white people who run the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, eating tacos, drinking tequila and wearing sombreros on Cinco de Mayo "are textbook examples of cultural appropriation." Euro-privileged people at Gonzaga University similarly warned "non-Mexican individuals" on campus not to wear costumes insensitive to the "Latinx culture."

Jimmy Carter began the first Iranian hostage crisis and Reagan ended it. Obama began America’s second Iranian hostage crisis. President Trump just ended it.

A day later, the Islamic terror state released its American hostages. Three days later, Implementation Day lifted sanctions on Iran.

The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap

As a committed Christian, I was happy to see the open presentation of the Christian faith at Saturday´s Royal Wedding.

Worse were comments on Dr. King, who certainly was rolling over in his grave by that point, including quoting Dr. King´s favorite

Three march organizers were spiritual advisors to President Barack Obama while one counseled President Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky scandal and later endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.
