The vote on S1238 didn’t happen Thursday! Please continue to contact your legislators. The next scheduled voting session is Monday, June 26.
S1238 was on the schedule for bills to be voted on but no vote was taken. Why? We don’t know. Perhaps it is because you called, emailed your state senator. If you didn’t here is another opportunity. If you did DO IT AGAIN.
Here are the details.
ALERT! S1238 Authorizes certain gestational carrier agreements. S1238 is the gay man’s baby maker. Homosexual men cannot create another human being in their sexual relationship. So when a homosexual man, single or in a relationship with another homosexual man, wants to become a parent they enter into an agreement with a woman to carry their baby. This is called Gestational Surrogacy. These agreements rent the womb of a woman at a price between $35,000 and upwards of $100,000 to carry someone else’s baby. The woman is compensated for all healthcare and is expected to surrender the baby she carries to the parties for which she carried the baby. In these circumstances, a child is deliberately brought into the world without the opposite sex parent. A homosexual relationship is not a relationship which any child should be brought into or raised. There are a host of other reasons why gestational surrogacy fails. It exploits poor women. No contractual agreement can deal with the emotional connections made with a woman who is pregnant and the baby she carries. These connections are chemical, the baby has a memory of the mother's heartbeat, Oxytocin is the bonding hormone both baby and mother are bonded chemically to one another. This bonding happens in the womb.
