Children are not commodities
The insistence of our consumer culture on treating children like manufactured goods made to specification instead of as gifts from God we have no right either to manufacture, nor to refuse, is wreaking havoc on human happiness. Here, for instance, is a story of 150 half-siblings all of whom have the same sperm-donor father. Children are intended for to be born of love by two married heterosexual parents, not to be manufactured to accessorize somebody’s “need” to be a parent.
