Well I thought the little news piece below was very interesting, as well as revealing.
Since it showed that much of the propaganda about gays having children is really nothing more then attempts to restrict the rights of single women to have children without the requisite male overseer.
As gay men have had the right to adopt children for decades with few bothering to do so.
AND as we can see from the article below most of the women using sperm donor services are single women wishing to be mothers and just not having an adequate partner, they are not lesbians.
AND I predict that we would see the same pattern in surrogacy arrangements as well as single parent adoptions, if anyone cared enough to check. Most would turn out to be ordinary single women wishing to have a family before it's too late, after being kept hanging around for years waiting for a commitment from some useless male reprobate (probably parked in front of the TV watching the Sports Channel for 75% of his existence).
Anyway, this whole uproar about gay marriage and parenting is a code for: men trying to be in charge of everything again and their ever more frantic attempts to exert male control over women (without having to move off the couch, of course, or relinguish the remote). In other words: restore the control over women men USED to have, without them having to make any real changes in their lives. Thus, limiting women's ability to be single mothers if we never happen to marry is the real motivation behind these crazed campaigns against gay marriage, procreating via sperm/egg donors, etc.
This was even the basis for England passing that ridiculous law last year making it illegal to use anonymous sperm donors anymore. Painting it as concern for children when in fact it was another sad attempt by men to try to regain control of women again.

'Bio-panic' leads solo women to parenting
LONDON, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- "Bio-panic," a term referring to single women's attempts at motherhood without a man, has driven scores of women to British clinics to embrace the endeavor.
Most of the women suffering from "bio-panic" are said to be in their 30s and have the mindset that waiting for the "perfect" man in order to have children could take too long, ultimately leading them to fertility clinics in increasing numbers, The Telegraph said.
"Many are suddenly realizing that this commitment-phobic man they are living with, who says he wants children 'at some point', cannot hear their biological clocks ticking," said the head of the British Fertility Society ethics committee, Dr. Gillian Lockwood. "These are wonderful, educated, professional women who are making a definite choice about motherhood."
While the number of single women forgoing relationships for motherhood has been increasing across Britain, recent figures have shown that the number of lesbian couples undergoing in vitro fertilization has also risen by nearly four times since 2001.
Altogether 536 single women in Britain underwent in vitro fertilization during the last year in comparison to 156 lesbians who attempted to become pregnant in the same way, the newspaper said.
