Anti-LGBTQ coalition launches new campaign for adoption discrimination

Sep 27, 2018

By Zack Ford

A group of anti-LGBTQ organizations, including several that have been labeled as hate groups, has launched a new campaign in favor of allowing adoption agencies to discriminate against same-sex couples.

The “Keep Kids First” campaign falsely claims that these faith-based agencies are being targeted to the detriment of the kids they purport to serve.

Not only is the new campaign trying to demonize same-sex parents and normalize taxpayer funding of discrimination, it is also trying to rewrite the history of conflicts between civil rights laws and anti-LGBTQ adoption agencies.

“Organizations like the ACLU are trying to force these providers to go against their beliefs and place kids in homes with couples who are in a same-sex relationship,” the site claims.

  • History provides us with examples of religio-political policies on adoption run by fascists in cahoots with the RCC or other religious groups!

    A Madrid court has acquitted a former doctor of stealing newborn babies from their mothers and supplying them to infertile couples.

    The court found gynaecologist Eduardo Vela, 85, had committed the crimes but charges were dropped because too much time had elapsed.

    After Franco’s triumph in Spain’s 1936-1939 civil war, many children were removed from families identified by the fascist regime as Republicans and given to families considered more deserving.

    Thousands more cases are suspected.

    Baby mice have been made with two mums and no dad, say researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

    It took a substantial feat of genetic engineering to break the rules of reproduction.

    The scientists said the “bimaternal” (two mammas) animals were healthy and went on to have pups of their own.

    The researchers were trying to answer fundamental questions about why we have sex.

    Mammals, including us, can make babies only through sexual reproduction – aka you need an egg from mum and a sperm from dad.

    But the rest of the natural world doesn’t play by the same rules; some female fish, reptiles, amphibians and birds can go it alone.

    Go on then, how did they do it?

    In short, with a lot of cutting-edge science.

    It was easier with double mums. The researchers took an egg from one mouse and a special type of cell – a haploid embryonic stem cell – from another.

    Both contained only half the required genetic instructions or DNA, but just bringing them together wasn’t enough.

    The researchers had to use a technology called gene editing to delete three sets of genetic instructions to make them compatible (more on that later).

    The double-dad approach was slightly more complicated.

    It took a sperm, a male haploid embryonic stem cell, an egg that had all of its own genetic information removed and the deletion of seven genes to make it all work.
