The New Scientist reports on the biochemical evidence that shows how valuable both a father and mother are to the upbringing of a child.
Oxytocin – the “cuddle chemical” – is normally released during social interactions and the child feels the benefit from mum and dad in different, important ways.
Some studies have shown that:
Girls reach puberty younger, become sexually active earlier and are more likely to get pregnant in their teens if their father was absent when they were young.
The sons of absent fathers display lower intimacy and self-esteem.
When men become fathers they undergo biochemical changes that affect their behaviour and oxytocin levels in both parents have different effects.
Fathers may be “biologically programmed” to help raise children.
So when I read about a lesbian couple getting the go ahead to receive NHS fertility treatment, it alarms me because it clearly goes against what is right, natural and beneficial for the child’s welfare.
From October, clinics will no longer be able to block lesbians by referring to a child’s “need for a father”.
The selfish social engineers, whose only desire is to destroy a healthy society, are again using ‘equality’ as a weapon against children.
If children are due any rights, then, barring unforeseen or tragic circumstances, entitlement to a mother and father come pretty much top of the list.
That’s the picture in Real Street, but what’s going on is that the real, logical, sensible and moral right of the child is completely ignored in favour of the perceived right of the lesbians to be treated equally (i.e. with heterosexual couples) even though their situation is not equal to a man and wife.
This whole shambles needs to be sorted out because what we have is a situation that is immoral, illogical, wastes NHS resources and most importantly, deprives children of what they really need: a father.
Deep shame upon all those who rate advancing a political cause above the welfare of children.
