Children are worse than consumer goods. No one judges you if you collect multiple classic cars.

Children are socially in the same category as affectations or minor peccadillos. Having one or two is acceptable, even cute. But having more than that is grungy.

The story brought tears to my eyes. Rather tragic people act this way, what?

If we do not value the life of the unborn (abortion) and the aged and infirm (euthanasia) then we should not be surprised when circumstances dictate that our own lives are inconvenient and unimportant to save.

An extraordinary level of trust should exist between impregnanted and impregnator. These surrogate affairs ignore that.

@John Mansfield

That level of trust used to be called “marriage.” That was in large part what marriage was about. The Supreme Court, our alien government of sterile sayings, has now effectively redefined marriage as a collection of otherwise unspecified government benefits given to those couples who apply for those benefits.

Abortion on demand and reduction of the mother to a rented womb and/or the source of a purchased egg, are consequences of the revolution we are living through.

“our alien government of sterile sayings” is in contention for aphorism of the year

@G

Thank you. I wish I could say it was original with me, but I borrowed the phrase from Charles Williams’ novel The Shadows of Ecstasy.
