Britain moves to eliminate fatherhood

In a post a couple of days ago I talked about how in Australia a certain state government has passed legislation to remove the word "father" from all birth certificates.

Well you can imagine my reaction when I read the article below, that discusses how the British have decided that fatherhood isnt really that important and all kids need is good parenting. Sounds nice but hides a deep seated misandry that is being pushed into legislation in Britain.

Once again it seems that western society's are on the attack against fathers. While at the same time women are demanding that they have access to female doctors, female teachers and female politicians because according to women only other females can fully empathise and support the needs of women.

However, this logic is quickly jettisoned when it comes to men with the same people arguing that young boys dont need male role models just good parents..........utter rubbish.

Women think they understand men but they dont really, because like many things in life you need to experience it to truly understand it and as such the best people to guide young boys into manhood are men and the best people to teach young girls how to relate to males are men. While for young girls it is vital to have women to help them develop a holistic understanding of themselves.

In recent years there have been many examples where children who have been adopted have sought out their real parents to understand who they are and we can only imagine that in years to come many kids produced by IVF and surrogacy will do the same.

In Australia up to 100,000 babies are killed each year under the name abortion, why not support these women through their pregnancies and then make the kids available to people who are not able to have children naturally - GR Klein

BRITAIN has forged landmark new rights for homosexual parents after the House of Commons unexpectedly threw out proposals that would have required fertility clinics to consider a child's "need for a father" before providing treatment.

The father's role will now be replaced by the "need for supportive parenting" and both partners recognised as parents on birth certificates when lesbian couples conceive with donated sperm, or gay men use surrogacy. At present, as in Australia, only the natural mother or father is automatically considered to be a parent when homosexual couples have fertility treatment.

The changes will be made to the controversial Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill, which governs stem cell research as well as fertility treatments and abortion.

The proposed pro-family amendments, including a Conservative proposal to lower the abortion limit from 24 weeks to 22 weeks, were defeated by entirely unexpected - and large - voting margins on Tuesday night and surprised the Labour Government, which had been prepared for a big defeat on the issue.

On Monday, Britain became the first Western nation to allow the mixing of human and animal cells in stem cell research, as well as the creation of so-called "saviour siblings" who can be screened for lifesaving tissue donations.

Tuesday night's conscience vote on both issues was by majorities of 75 and 68, and they have been hailed as the most important widening of homosexual rights to families since gays were allowed to adopt children.

Fertility clinics will now be banned from refusing lesbian or single women treatment if they cannot provide a male paternal model. This reason has often been used by clinics that choose to refuse treatment to lesbian or single women.

MPs who supported the fatherhood amendments warned traditional families would be undermined, while others feared that the significance of a father would be undermined in comparison to that of a mother.

However, the Health Minister, Dawn Primarolo, described the changes as "fair, equitable" and drafted to recognise the complexities of modern British life. "What counts is the quality of parenting," she said. (Could we also say to this women that what counts in government is good management and gender is irrelvant and as such we dont need equal represntation of both men and women in parliament or "what counts in hospitals is good medicine the gender of the doctor is irrelevant and as such males should be very well suited to providing care for women".....
