Well it didn’t take long for this to travel from Europe to the US. We will gradually see over the next decade or so, laws criminalizing use of anonymous sperm donors throughout the U.S. This strategy, along with the recent changes to adoption laws, will make it more and more difficult for the so-called ‘Choice Moms’ to continue sticking their heads in the sand.
BTW, I love the pure selfishness of these “Choice Moms”. The Mary Chaneys of the world self-righteously informing all the women who struck their necks out and took the recriminations and the direct hits, so that women like her could have a choice to be a mother if they wished. Only to be told now “This is a gift from God, my baby.”
Right. God’s the reason you were allowed to become a single mother and raise the child you’ll bear. God. Right.
I hate to tell you this lady. But that right you have is a gift from other single mothers who blazed the trail before you, who argued and lobbied and fought for changes in laws and public policies, so that you could have that choice. Yet due to your short-sightedness and selfishness young women probably won’t have the same option in their future.
Maybe it’s for the best. As these “Choice Moms” were a small elite group of mothers anyway. They avoided the legal horrors inflicted on other mothers and children by ensuring men had no rights to a mother’s children before the child was even born. Well guess what ‘Choice Moms” those days are coming to an end.
Going forward this probably means women will have to recognize they is no easy way around these vicious assaults on motherhood which selfish men have embarked upon. Their propaganda has to be directly confronted, as will their allies who have infested our family court system.
Bill would end anonymity of future sperm donors
By Dena Potter
RICHMOND -- A Republican lawmaker is sponsoring General Assembly legislation that would make Virginia the first state to prohibit anonymous sperm donations.
Delegate Robert G. Marshall, a Christian conservative from Prince William County, is sponsoring the House bill.
Mr. Marshall also is the General Assembly's foremost author of legislation to curb abortion and regulate birth-control methods. He said he filed the bill to protect donor-conceived children and that he feels for those who don't know the identity of their father.
Mr. Marshall said he recently saw a child wearing a T-shirt with the words: "My dad's name is Donor," then thought, "That's pathetic."
Australia and a few European countries have banned anonymous sperm donations. In each country, donations have dwindled and the cost of fertility services has increased.
Opponents warn about the same result in Virginia.
