Having intercourse with a man just so a pair of perverts can raise such a child should be outlawed entirely.

Is that how the couple got pregnant? or did they use artificial insemination to get pregnant? Either way is truly irrelevant to what the hospital did to them with regards to letting them see each other and the decisions that were not able to be made by the couple!!!

I think the couple did something to the child. The other woman prob got jelous of the child being in the relationship, so she kill the child.

Unfortunately, the couple said they wouldn't sue. They should. Not for the money. But to get a consent decree from the hospital not to break the law in the future. And to institute a comprehensive, ongoing training program encompassing all staff as well as directors and officers. I hope that one of the leal organizations like NCLR or the Task Force reaches out and convinces them to do it.

Uh, champ, this is *WHY* they pay no attention to you and keep doing what they do.

Categorize what they do in some sensible, logical manner and they might pay attention. But when you dismiss it instantly as "perverted" and "insane," they shrug you off and do not care, I promise you.

In fact, it makes them think *you* are perverted and insane.

"brown lipstick," see?

This is the type of response you'll get.

If you can't be sensible and logical, NO ONE CARES. I promise you you won't get through in the slightest. You and everyone like you *m-u-s-t* stop acting like independent "arbiters" of morality when your "morality" is senseless.

Thank you. I respected their decision (not to do so) but didn't like it. Your idea here is intelligent, sound and logical.

So sad that the medical profession doesn't agree with you. I guess pretending you know more than they do is supposed to fool someone exceptionally and spectacularly stupid into thinking you're somehow "intelligent" in this realm.

Congressman Akin recently made verbal blunders which have now been called out for, among other things, questioning the experience of women. That anyone antigay would question the experience of gay people is as horrific a sin, as senseless, and as laughable considering that *NOTHING* about medical knowledge or expertise supports the opinions of the antigay.

But you knew all of this.

You say all this while people continue to kill themselves, do meth and other drugs, engage in risky sexual behaviors and share their diseases with the world and continue to blame others. That is a mental illness. Or at the very least, very poor judgement.

If religion and spirituality disappeared tomorrow there would still be drugs, there would still be alcohol, there would still be violence, there would still be diseases, there would still be perverts, there would still be pornography, there would still be greed, there would still be crime, there would still be Zionism and all the other vice the world has to offer but finally and maybe then America and the rest of the world would have to stop blaming religion or spirituality and finally take responsibility for their own actions.
I doubt it.

Frivolous lawsuits for months to come. This is what happens when our no good govt and justice system can't recognize this for what it is. A health crisis to a marriage crisis to a parenting crisis. It is based on perverted, unhealthy, and morally unsound acts and sometimes I wonder if this govt pulls this chit on purpose to keep us at each other instead of the real problem here, big govt.

1. You're making a thinly disguised attempt to link this behavior with "gay inherent nature" or some such nonsense; this argument will go very, very poorly for you -- do you *really* want to go there? do you? hmmm?-- if we start to talk about an "inherent nature" of the antigay, based in their behavior.

2. You do nothing to solve the problem. You natter about it like you're entitled to *bitch and have others respect what you say*? Last time I checked, talk is exceptionally and contemptibly cheap. You weren't taught this lesson?... What kind of people raised you? How *contemptible* am I entitled to find them? Hmmm?

3. Worst of all, you're stereotyping. Your response has nothing to do with anything unless you made it *about* gay people; then you're ignoring the straight people all around you who are such train wrecks *cough* that by YOUR logic, we're entitled to call them "filth" and "insane." Did you *really* mean to entitle others to do that? You tell me.

You stereotype; then you complain when you or yours are stereotyped. Needs to stop or you continue to get stereotyped, period. This is not up for discussion. Wanna play that game? It's obvious the pro-gay are not tiring of it.

Learn to stop lying and misrepresenting things, and you won't get continued and endless nastiness *which you have earned* because you cannot seem to have this discussion without maligning others and pretending you're a *DOCTOR*; where's your license, by the way? Where'd you go to school to learn about *medicine* and *psychiatry*?

Think before you type.

Thanks for reading.

And that's off the cuff, "lipstick" person. Why is it that I can find multiple things wrong with your response *with barely any effort*?

Think your "arguments" would hold up in a court of law? I'm curious, because nonsense like yours doesn't seem to be faring well when *FACT* starts getting introduced.

Thanks.

I doubt it.
Wonder why!

Because "religion" as it has been bastardized *already exists* for reasons having to do with human nature. What you just said is this:

That if "religion" disappeared tomorrow, people would still be spineless, weak-willed *train wrecks* who seem to have an awful lot of problems living their own lives without attempting to interfere in others'.

Even though much of what you say is true of humanity in general (and indicts everyone, including you), and even though you mix your *opinions*(words like "perversion") in with a litany of existential facts which have to do with that humanity.

Perhaps, one could once have defined "perversion." But now those who cry about moral relativity are deliberately blind to how they promote it left and right, using a word like "perversion" to describe utterly innocent human beings. Destroys the meaning of the word; renders it completely meaningless.

A word, does! not! have! any meaning if two sides are arguing and screaming that it applies each to the other. When dolts and the literally uneducated are escorted from the room and *ADULTS* talk, all this means is that either everyone is perverted, or no one is.

Period.
