DOJ: Children Do Not Needand Have No Right to--Mothers March 3, 2013 By Terence P. Jeffrey
Georgetown Law School. (AP Photo/Haraz Ghanbari) (CNSNews.com) - The Obama Justice Department is arguing in the United States Supreme Court that children do not need mothers.
The Justice Departments argument on the superfluity of motherhood is presented in a brief the Obama administration filed in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry, which challenges the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended Californias Constitution to say that marriage involves only one man and one woman.
The Justice Department presented its conclusions about parenthood in rebutting an argument made by proponents of Proposition 8 that the traditional two-parent family, led by both a mother and a father, was the ideal place, determined even by nature itself, to raise a child.
The Obama administration argues this is not true. It argues that children need neither a father nor a mother and that having two fathers or two mothers is just as good as having one of each.
The [California] Voter Guide arguably offered a distinct but related child-rearing justification for Proposition 8: 'the best situation for a child is to be raised by a married mother and father, said the administrations brief submitted to the court by Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr.
As an initial matter, no sound basis exists for concluding that same-sex couples who have committed to marriage are anything other than fully capable of responsible parenting and child-rearing, the Department of Justice told the court. To the contrary, many leading medical, psychological, and social-welfare organizations have issued policy statements opposing restrictions on gay and lesbian parenting based on their conclusion, supported by numerous scientific studies, that...

Welcome to the new Soviet Union, comrade. Children do not need mothers or fathers, they have the State. The almighty State; for all your needs, from cradle to grave. Long live the State.
All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state. — Benito Mussolini
The hard left is doing their utmost to destroy the culture and bring on the Borg collective. These freaks have become totally unhinged.
Yeah, that’s why “Mommy!” is so often heard from the severely injured, well into adulthood.
the commie rules of 1963 stated to take children away from the influence of parents, ever since that is what the left has been doing and why fairy boy in the white house is upset if head start etc is cut in any way , shape or form.
What gets me is how our side fail all the time to understand whta the left is doing, . They have written it out over years, Cloward and Piven, Rules for radical Alinsky and 1963.
For some reason our side plays defense all the time instead of going after the left and be pro active.
How far we have fallen when our government argues this abomination.
the left know the backbone of this country is the family and they have always hated the family and thta is why we see them fight so hard to redefine family.
Our side has to grow a set of balls and go after them, mention that family is a mother and a father, and it is they who raise their children, it is they who are responsible for their children, whether feeding them to clothing them to educating them
They determined years ago that children do not need fathers. Now it’s mothers children also do not need. Right?
That door was opened with favored constituents of both political parties abolishing fatherhood and passing laws against fatherhood. If you want to know how they get away with it, BTW, look up some info on “parens patriae.”
the freaks really are running the asylum
those “on the right” that play dumb are really just progressive operatives in the republican party
remember, the best way to insure your political policies are enacted is to be on both sides of the ticket
This is sheer evil.
We are departing more and more from the family structure that God has ordained and which has been the backbone of civilization for millennia.
Dude, that has been the goal of compulsory schooling since the turn of last century. Alinsky is a latecomer.
Why is the Justice Department wasting my fugging money arguing this Bullshyt.
If it wasn’t for the fruit in the White House the Federal Government would not be sticking it’s Homo nose into a States business.
It doesn’t belong there.
If Obama wants to save money cut out all of this Justice Department interference in States business.
This Justice Department spends more time fighting Social issues than it does Criminal ones.
And an incubator and a state-run camp would be even better, eh comrade?
