taking babies away from their mothers is incredibly traumatising

In the past up through the 50’s, 60’s and even 70’s it was done on the grounds that single, pregnant women and girls were “fallen” or otherwise unworthy.

Nowadays it’s done as surrogacy: almost (*) always an exploitative practice, rich using poor in one way or another.

This is a variation on the surrogacy exploitation, gay men wanting to play at family just like their straight brothers and demanding a woman’s child from her.

I don’t care whether she “agreed”. Until she had actually given birth she wasn’t in a position to agree anything.

(*) I don’t know a case where it isn’t exploitative, but there maybe some.

  1. related to this is the fact that if a woman has an unwanted pregnancy it is much much less of a problem to have an abortion than “just give it up for adoption”. Forced pregnancy and forced separation is far worse than abortion, it doesn’t even come close.

  2. also related, that despite MRA whining about how courts are “biased towards mothers”, we see the reality that whenever a sperm donor wants to claim “his” child the courts will side with him.

  3. just read the Daily Mail article on this, ” the mother – who first met the father when they were both teenagers in Romania”, so guessing there’s a side order of racism from the court thrown in against the mother too.
