Another step in the process of the commodification of human life and the abolition of parenthood

Mr. David Schütz at Sentire cum Ecclesia has a post in connection with the passage of a law in Victoria to give single and homosexual women greater access to fertility treatment and to change surrogacy arrangements. Here is a comment that I made at the blog:


I wonder whether there will be a Parliamentary Inquiry into Senator Conroy’s emotional blackmail? After all, Cardinal Pell was accused of “emotional blackmail” and hauled before an inquiry for his intervention into the debate over stem cell research in N.S.W. last year. Imagine the outcry if, say, Msgr. Hart had used the tactics of Sen. Conroy. Funny how there’s one standard for the supporters of the commodification of human life and another for its opponents.
I wonder, also, whether Mr. Smith thought to ask Sen. Conroy how many of the latter’s child’s embryonic brothers and sisters were tipped down the drain, discarded as ‘excess embryos’?
