This can't be true. Gays tell us this kind of stuff only happens in straight families. I wonder if either of them is the real mother. The story says "they" had the baby two years after they formed a civil union. I don't believe it.

I think it's usually kind of easy to tell who is the real mother...

Normally, women have more rights to keep children than husbands. In this case they both are women. I really want to know what criteria the judge rules only one woman can keep the children. I am confused.

OK. Why doesn't this surprise us? Woman are completely vindictive. I can't imagine how vindictive a lesbian could be!!! ROFL!!!!
Gay marriage should get put to the peoples' vote. It would be completely stuffed mirroring the results of Maine. Once again, the only reason gay marriage passed was for political votes. Can you say corruptions? Can you say government corruption???

Fortunately, the state of Massachusetts is progressive enough to realize that biology does not dictate the "realness" of one's parenthood. Instead, "realness" is dictated by intent to have a child, and who takes care of that child. Saying the other mother in a same-sex marriage is not the "real" mother is like saying an adoptive mother is not a "real" mother because she has no biological connection to her child.

Every real American Judge you will ever see upon this blessed Earth,is now,and have always acted as a part of Our Father in Heaven -

As long as it was a genuine conversion, at least the child will have a chance to be raised with morality, and won't have to be ashamed in school and everywhere else when asked about her parents. Way to go.

Maybe the judge gave it to the one who gave birth to the child. Just a guess.

I can't believe how ignorant you people can be yet you're reading whats going on in todays world. Its a new day. Gay people can marry and have children. Someone might as well do it since the ones bad mouthing gays arent adopting parent-less babies. Both these women love this child its apparent, but the other women doesnt know how to handle the situation (i imagine its extremely hard.) So she runs off... It isnt about who wears the "pants," they both want to care for this child but they cant work as a couple. Its sad to read about.
