Surrogacy Fiasco

A lesbian couple from Hollywood have adopted twin girls in a transatlantic surrogacy fiasco involving six other adults. An Italian businessman and his Portuguese wife living in France had commissioned a British surrogate, Claire Austin, to have embryos, produced from the eggs and sperm of two strangers, implanted by a Greek doctor in Athens. On discovering that the twins were girls the couple cancelled their order and demanded an abortion. The surrogate located the adopting parents through a gay and lesbian agency.

Meanwhile Britain's first gay couple to father surrogate children are planning to have another baby. Tony Barlow and Barrie Drewitt, who spent £200,000 paying a Californian surrogate to carry their twins, have just spent a week with another American woman who has agreed to carry their next child.[1] These extreme cases are a poignant reminder that God had good reasons for instituting marriage as a life-long, heterosexual, monogamous relationship;[2] thereby providing a stable base for imparting wisdom to the next generation.[3]
