Parental rights and wrongs
|Three's a crowd|
My view is that good parents are few and far between. There are great many parents who, emotionally, have not reached maturity and perhaps never will! The children of today are being raised by overgrown children themselves! It seems misguided that medical science pioneers new techniques in the creation of progeny but it is left to society to deal with the backlash of the poorly parented in-vitro fertilised offspring. According to political correctness we can all be parents, naturally or not, regardless of our lifestyles and life choices. The most horrific scenario being that two long term drug users can have access to IVF and surrogacy with no thought as to the disadvantage suffered by the child.
Bringing a child into the world is a privilege and a huge responsibility. It is a human right but a delicate one.
We cannot all produce babies as a right in the way that we all cannot buy a Mercedes Benz.
