Dr. Laura on her blog http://www.drlaurablog.com/ brings to our attention the attack on family. It happened in England, but pretty soon the fight will come here, too. Here is what she says:
Besides the assault on Western civilization from the outside by Islamist jihadists, we are deconstructing our own society by declaring null and void basic concepts of mother- and father-centered lives for children.
Forget the biology: Male and female create offspring
Forget the psychology and sociology: children who do not have Mom and Dad-centered home lives tend to have higher poverty rates, and more problems on all levels with education, violence, and substance abuse,
Forget everything that is basic and makes sense, because some women are so selfish and/or incompetent to have a healthy relationship with a man that their desire - desire - is to have a child, intentionally robbing that child of a father and a mom and dad-centered home.
Well, permission to do so has been granted by the British government to do just that. The British government voted just last week to remove the requirement that fertility clinics consider a child’s need for a father. Let me repeat: they removed the requirement that fertility clinics even consider a child’s need for a father. Can you believe that? The best interests of a child are eliminated from discourse, because a female wants to make a baby for her own pleasure - and a historically civilized government backs her up? Sheesh!
Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, in an interview with London’s “The Times,” said, “I think it strange that the government should want to take away not just the need for a father, but the right for a father.”
Sad, very sad :(
