Posted on 05/04/2012 2:07:33 PM PDT by madprof98
OHARA, Pa. Tagg Romney, the eldest son of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, announced via Twitter that he and his wife Jen have new twin boys, delivered by a surrogate today.
Happy 2 announce birth of twin boys David Mitt and William Ryder. Big thanks to our surrogate. Life is a miracle, Tagg tweeting, linking to a photo of himself and one of his new sons.
This the second time that Tagg, 42, and his wife, Jen,39, have used a surrogate. The same surrogate was used for the twins carried their youngest son Jonathan, who was born in August of 2010. Their other three children were not born via surrogacy.

Heart transplants and organ donations canot be be equated morally with reproductive concubinage. The “modern” “technical” aspect of surrogacy is not what makes it objectionable. It’s the depersonalization and demaritalization of reproduction -— distorting procreation into being both a comemrcial transaction and a laboratory breeding technique -— that makes it objectionable.
Should we not donate blood and organs because the recipient’s body rejects it, because it is for all intents and purposes, unnatural in the recipient’s body?
Maybe skydiving should be banned because there’s a chance of the plane or parachute failing. Because you know, just because we can jump out of perfectly good airplanes, doesn’t mean it’s a good idea and all...
Peace be with you. I am not your enemy.
we thought we were helping with the expenses..nothing is FREE unless you sign up for Obama’s welfare plans..
I have friend who used surrogate as well and I never once consider them ‘bought’
I also donate to DVA and Paralyzed Veterans..guess I buy them as well...
what ever...your opinion
Hey... oldest one of ten .... mother was the oldest one of ten.... she had six sisters....... tell me about having more than one mother...... sheeesh.
Come to think of it there where at least a dozen great aunts also.
The legalization of any procedure or product has to be weighed against both the good it does and the harm it does. I believe another problem with artificial insemination is that extra embryos are created that become frozen or destroyed. This is where the aspect of the cheapening of human life comes into the discussion. Adoption is still a great option that not only helps the parents but an existing unwanted child.
Didn’t take long for someone to nail the ‘surrogates’ connection!
Maybe they decided to use only two eggs, and they were both fertilized.
Now where did he learn those values?
I think it's perfectly fair to examine the parents when it comes to their chillun's belief systems.
It's like Mayor d'Alessandro in Baltimore, a regular old Siciliano Protectore, and he raised his daughter Nancy Pelosi to have what can most charitably be called MOB ETHICS.
Not that there's anything wrong with that ~ in some ways the MOB has the right idea ~ like with loyalty, stealing from within, that sort of thing, but going after the grandfather is one of those opportunity things.
If they want to do this stuff do it when we aren't watching them. Else be prepared for the criticism.
“The modern technical aspect of surrogacy is not what makes it objectionable. Its the depersonalization and demaritalization of reproduction - distorting procreation into being both a comemrcial transaction and a laboratory breeding technique “
But couldn’t that opinion be equally applied to heart transplants?? Placing another person’s heart into a patient could be considered distorting the Creator’s masterpiece! And heart transplants aren’t free, are they??
Sometimes they get confused for Jack Mormons but they have a perfectly good base of Christian belief in their Lutheran and Orthodox backgrounds.
Mary did the same thing. Totally.
Considering they’ve done this twice and had twins both times, the odds are astronomically in favor of them using IVF. Now, who will ask Mitt Romney what happened to all his other preborn grandchildren that were concieved by these procedures? Are they sitting in a freezer somewhere? In a plastic bag in a biohazard dump? Being used for stem cell harvesting? Inquiring minds might like to know.
“Next, youll be saying that only children conceived using the missionary position should be allowed to live. Sheesh.”
That’s ridiculous. There are a great many pro-lifers who are opposed to IVF, because the procedure results in a great many more DEATHS of human beings than lives. This includes the Catholic Church. The opposition has nothing to do with wanting children to die, in fact it is the opposite.
“If you found out your wife couldnt carry a child to term, would you divorce her and claim her to be unnatural?”
No, why would I divorce her? Just because she can’t carry a child? There are numerous NATURAL reasons why a female cannot carry a child. Next question.
“Youre a disgusting person. If I was JimRob, Id banhammer you immediately.”
I am a disgusting person because I don’t believe in rented-wombs, wealth and power influencing social ills? Ban me all you want.
Congratulations and best wishes for the Romney family.
“Its her egg and his sperm. Whats the problem.”
The problem is that IVF is essentially a mass abortion that also happens to result in a few babies surviving sometimes. If that’s alright with you, then we are not on the same page.
Evil and twisted. Sending people to jail.
Dear Lord....way out...way out.
you’re not impressing a soul with your piousness.
You appear to be a bit of a nut.
Nice and thanks for taking the trouble.
The person to whom you are trying to enlighten....lost cause.
The sort that makes FreeRepublic look like a bunch of backwoods dolts.
“How did you make the leap from surrogate mothers to fetal stem cell research?
One option creates life, the other extinguishes it.”
Wrong. We are talking a surrogate using IVF. So the correct comparison is:
One option (abortion) extinguishes life, the other option (IVF) extinguishes many lives, but might create one or a few lives also.
Now maybe you can understand the moral revulsion this provokes in some of us.
