GAYS AND CHILDREN
The Scottish government is preparing to vote on a bill that would allow gay couples to be parents according to Gay News:
It allows same-sex partners to adopt each other's children. It also permits both partners to adopt children through an agency or become co-parents through in-vitro fertilization. And, it allows same-sex couples to jointly be foster parents.
See, someone needs to explain this to me. Just what, exactly, does a doctor do with the petri dish potential for two male lovers? I've just never heard of a man carrying a child to term before. Or is this intended to be a three-way scenerio? In which case, does the child have two daddies and one mommy? Or are we talking about discrimination against gays and in favor of lesbians here?
I must be awfully naive.
