  1. just antoehr place where well meaning people can get the threaded fastener treatement for helping gay people.

    Need a national law about this – she signs a consent form and NFW. Dont like it – dont have a baby/

    This looks like an attempt to sabotage and prevent parenthood for gay/lesbian couples by making “donors” fearful of possible legal obligations if the “receiver couple” breaks up.

    Laws never do catch-up to modern times do they!

    IVF treatment, Egg, sperm and other tissue donation has been arounds for decades!

    It is time that the laws finally recognised parentage, IVF treatment, egg, sperm and tissue donations!

    Foster parenting, adoption, child custody, surrogacy, IVF parentage, organ donation, etc

    Also need to fully recognised in the law!

    However cloning of human beings, gender selection on babies, and designer babies should be and remain illegal at all times!

    Abortion is a woman right since 1973 under Roe v. Wade and both euthanasia and the death penalty is cruel, outdated and barbaric!

    Murderers, drug dealers or drug trafficking, rape, possession, distribution and making child pornography and acts of peadophilia or child molestation should be a minimum of a LIFE SENTENCE IN PRISON with NO parole at all, under any circumstances!

    It is not a good thing for people who would like to use the methods of artificial insemination to see that disputes such as these come up from time to time. One of my friends used the services from http://www.growinggenerations.com and found that all these concerns were settled before engaging into a contract with both parties. I would suggest everyone looking for surrogacy, egg donation, et al to always keep in mind that such issues can crop up.
