I thought this was an excellent article and well worth the read (along with Andrea’s most excellent piece). Lisa Ravary makes crucial points about the rights of children NOT to be biological orphans, whether the couple creating them through human reproductive technologies is heterosexual or homosexual.
People don’t seem to care anymore that the building blocks of life can be bought on specs from glitzy American websites, complete with “Your cart is empty” and “Proceed to checkout” sections, that the embryo created in a lab will be carried to term by a woman without any genetic ties to it (she will be a “special auntie” said Legendre) and delivered by caesarian.
Children are not a right – and the children that we do have, have a right to know where they came from. I would add further, that children have a right to their biological parents, meaning their father and their mother.by
