Mary Cheney, the former vice presidents daughter, and her long-time partner, Heather Poe, are expecting their second child, a source close to the family told True/Slant. [Ed. Note: Since publishing this piece, Cheney has confirmed that she and Poe are expecting their second child in mid- to late November.]
Cheney has worked as a principal at Navigators Global, a bi-partisan communications firm, but recently announced that she would be leaving the company for maternity leave and to begin a new consulting firm with her sister, Liz. Close friends were informed that she was expecting a second child about four months ago and she is now visibly showing her pregnancy, the source says.
Cheney, a lesbian, attracted much attention from the conservative movement when she announced she was pregnant with her first child in late 2006. Social conservative pundit and founder of Focus on the Family, James Dobson, penned a controversial op-ed for Time magazine called Two Mommies Is One Too Many, opining Cheneys decision to start a family:
"With all due respect to Cheney and her partner, Heather Poe, the majority of more than 30 years of social-science evidence indicates that children do best on every measure of well-being when raised by their married mother and father. That is not to say Cheney and Poe will not love their child. But love alone is not enough to guarantee healthy growth and development. The two most loving women in the world cannot provide a daddy for a little boyany more than the two most loving men can be complete role models for a little girl."

At least Dick Cheney will be the Grampa. That should balance things out.
“There is something quite perverse about a society that allows avowed and unrepentant homosexuals to unnaturally take on children as playthings.”
Also repugnant, IMNSHO, is the use of “they are expecting a child” when, for obvious reasons “they” could not POSSIBLY have conceived. It is the slight of hand that the left does with rediculous name reversals (like “FAMILY PLANNING”) that implies something that in fact does just not happen...
Since his daughter IS a grown adult, I doubt he has control over what she does, obviously.
Actually, she should be referred to as the daughter of the former Vice President. Far as I can tell, she’s still his daughter...
It's not his decision since she's an emancipated adult. Mary Cheney is poorly exercising her free will which she will have to answer for one day.
How much control do you have over your adult children?
Was that on the cover of “The Rolling Stone”? LOL
Cheney has confirmed that she and Poe are expecting their second child.. their? I thought her ‘partner’ is a female? Two females can’t create a child.
When your kids become adults, there’s not one thing you can do about their choices. I don’t approve of these kids being deprived of a father in the home.
I respect Cheney for not trashing his daughter in public. It wouldn’t do any good, and it would be a betrayal of sorts.
As much as I don’t like it, God will have to sort this out in the end.
Our society has gone to hell in a hand-basket, no doubt about that.
I wonder if Hallmark makes a card for this occasion? Yathink?
Listened to a few priests in the last few months and I think they might be right--we are due anytime for a major @$$ kicking (chastisement).
I doubt that Dick Cheney is a controlling force in his daughter’s life, much as you and I, and probably he as well, would prefer that her life choices be far different from what they are.
A baby is a baby is a baby.
I hope Mary’s new baby is as healthy and happy as the first one.
Give glory to God for every new life!
But I'm not sure I'd want to live in a society that restricted pregnancy to only those it deemed worthy of having children. I'm not even sure I'd want adoption restricted in that manner. In this brave new world of Obama-ism, I'd be afraid that people not unlike many of us who post here would be told they're neither permitted to procreate or to adopt. ::shudder::
“’they’ could not POSSIBLY have conceived. It is the slight of hand that the left does with rediculous name reversals (like ‘FAMILY PLANNING’)”
Exactly. The media casually reports she is pregnant, yet these homosexual couples have to use a whole series of bizarre test tube procedures in order to obtain their human play toy. There is nothing natural or loving about it. There are thousands of crying infants waiting for adoption, yet these two lesbians prefer to ‘create’ and then damage a newborn by denying him or her a father.
I will never understand why it has to involve gestation.
Even the sons and daughters of Republican politicians get on the gravy train and don’t get off, and have easy, conflict-free lives due to the virtue of their connections and name. This has got to stop.
