Skip to comments.'The View' Host Sherri Shepherd Rejects Unborn IVF Baby
Posted on 07/10/2014 4:27:02 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
A year ago The View co-host Sherri Shepherd announced she and her husband Lamar Sally were going to have a baby using a surrogate. The procedure was to use Shepherds eggs and the womb of a stranger.
Shepherd said at the time that she had found a drama-free uterus and that were putting in our eggs and Sals sperm and well let you know how it progresses.
It turns out not to have progressed very well either for a baby or for the marriage.
TMZ reported this week that Shepherds eggs and Sallys sperm did not work and that she turned to another womans eggs and yet another uterus to have a baby. In the meantime, her marriage broke up and Shepherd has announced she doesnt want to have anything to do with the unborn baby.
Shepherd has no biological connection to the unborn child. It was not her egg that was used, nor her uterus. Shepherd has filed for divorce in New Jersey, which does not recognize surrogacy agreements, so it would seem she is free and clear and can walk away from the child that she ordered up from a fertility clinic. She has said, It is not my child. Im not paying child support.
The Shepherd case opens the door to the sometimes murky and completely unregulated world of assisted reproductive technologies. Critics charge that the process is tainted from beginning to end.
It starts with parents who cannot conceive and who believe they have a right to a baby. They go in search of eggs, sperm, or wombs, sometimes all three. At fertility clinics they browse through catalogues of sperm donors; college educated, white, blond hair, blue eyes, athletic, for instance, and then choose someone anonymously.

Filmmaker Jennifer Lahl calls this Eggploitation which is the title of one of her documentaries showing how the young women are found and induced into the procedure. You will see ads for such women in the pages of Ivy League student newspapers. Ivy League eggs are considered among the best. Even the left calls such things the commodification of human life.
And then there are the rented wombs. A woman may be too old to carry a child, or the couple may be two men. A womb must be found and rented for 9 months. There are websites dedicated to matching young women with wombs to let and those who need them.
The whole thing is a sick practice, brought to you by the people who are always saying it’s “MY RIGHT”, GIMMEE!
What ever happened to old fashioned ADOPTMENT.
Here is a problem with “prochoice” surrogacy— she thinks it's not a baby yet and therefore can just toss it aside. But she can't control some one else's uterus so she's p***ed. I hope the surrogate bonds with the baby, raises it, and takes Shepherd to the bank!Then again, maybe a nice home away from all involved would be preferable. How much she's trying to buy off the surrogate to get an abortion?
Sick, sick, sick from start to finish.
These people are despicable.
Would you want these people to adopt your child?
What a total bitch. Women like that should not ever be allowed to have children, kinda glad that she couldn’t have one on her own. She doesn’t deserve the blessing of children.
It’s not very complicated, really. Once you divorce the sexual act from its procreative purpose, then anything goes. Anything. And the arguments simply become more absurd the further the technology progresses. Just because something CAN be done, doesn’t mean it SHOULD be done.
She has a child from her first marriage.
So she ordered it like a pizza and now that it’s about to be delivered, she doesn’t want it anymore, eh? Well. Nice. I suppose the ex-husband will get it. Presumably he’s the sperm donor.
First of all having a husband named Lamar Sally seems like a bad idea.
But, more importantly, what’s going to happen to this baby?
I see the woman in question is black (I recognized her when I saw her picture, although I did not recognize her from just her name). Is the child black? Is this poor innocent baby, who as the saying goes, didn’t ask to be born, going to be at a disadvantage?
I suppose there’s some legal contract somewhere, I wonder what that provides for.
Would this child have standing to sue this woman and her husband for abandonment? Suppose he or she grows up poor, whereas they could have been rich?
Is Mr. Sally the bio dad of the child? Has he been asked about what his intentions are?
So many questions and who would care, but the fate of a child hangs in the balance. Too bad his erstwhile wanna be mom doesn’t give a rip about it.
What a POS. In more civilized times she would be shunned and her career would be over.
Instead Obama will probably award her the presidential medal of freedom for refusing to be punished with a baby.
Once you take God out of the picture, the act of creation becomes a mere technical exercise. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, of blessed memory, a great Jewish leader, predicted the commodification of embryos. (He himself was childless, so he was not at all insensitive to the plight of infertile couples.)
Do you remember how long ago this was?
