O’HARA, 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.

The simple explanation, and the usual reason in most of these cases, is that the wife is infertile or has had multiple failures to carry to term. She is 39 after all, and if she hasn’t already had children her time is up.

Everyone I know who has been in this position has already tried all sorts of fertility treatments. This is the last option.

Just as Sarah Palin isn’t going to stand up for traditional family values after her teenaged daughter became pregnant out of wedlock?

and you see these two events as identical?

fear for the republic.

What happened to you so-called conservatives? Surrogate mothers, rent-a- womb, using fetus stem cells for research; where is your moral consistency? ?

How did you make the leap from surrogate mothers to fetal stem cell research?

One option creates life, the other extinguishes it. I think there is a HUGE difference between the two.

Surrogate motherhood or Rent-a- womb, is going against God’s will.
Most evangelicals, Catholics, and orthodox Jews are against this practice.

Just come right out and say you don’t like the Romneys.
I know I don’t. Here they basically rented a womb ....

And what kind of stupid name is `Tag’ anyway?

Missionary position? Hey, too much information girlfriend!
This isn’t The View: Spare us the details of your sex life, OK?

Let’s get back to Mitt. I can see the grandkids going to `Tag’ and asking, “Um, Tag, Dad—is granddad alive? He hasn’t moved all day ..... “

Guess I told the gun=grabbing, abortionist, homo Rhomnoids,
huh Tex?
Don’t let the lefty bass-turds grind you down: Screw `em!

None of this is any of my business, or anyone else’s. I don’t “get” why they have to announce a birth as surrogate (tho I guess it’s pretty obvious his wife wasn’t carrying). 3 children born within 2 years by the same surrogate seems a bit much, given they already had three children born without a surrogate. Maybe it’d be more understandable to us more traditional types had they not had the first three.

So who was the surrogate, the father or the mother?

The teenage Palin had her baby naturally. The conception was natural, magical, and blessed. The conception was not due to a doctor breaking the egg-wall, injecting the sperm into it, and then implanting it in a rented-womb.

AI is evil and twisted. Those doing AI(doctors, “parents”, and surrogates) should be in jail.

Let’s factory produce the babies... just need a sperm, an egg, an a womb!

Two children are born, and most here are spewing hate...lovely.

Exactly...the tone on this thread is pretty low.

Happens a lot around here these days.

o. m. gosh.

Rape makes babies naturally? I thought your problem was that the Romney children weren’t conceived “traditionally”.

I cannot continue this discussion with a person who doesn’t understand the difference between natural and traditional.

natural- existing in or formed by nature ( opposed to artificial): a natural bridge.

There is no way that the Romney’s children wouldn’t have been conceived naturally. They are not artificial children. A sperm met an egg, creating an embryo. It was implanted. Just because YOU don’t like how or where that embryo implanted doesn’t make those children or AI wrong.

Comments like yours give conservative sites like FR a bad name.

Maybe Sarah should’ve claimed Bristol was carrying her baby as a surrogate. Libs would’ve ate that up as a fine progressive example, right?

They are both part of the progressive social policy of eugenics and sex selection. Part of the left’s agenda for “womens reproductive health”.

Since surrogate mothers get $50k and up for participating in this very unnatural act, what about regular folks? Will that be on Romney’s health care agenda for all women? Paid for by the American taxpayer? A very slippery slope!

I guess the Mormons don’t believe in adoption.

“after reading the posts here...
I checked to make sure I didn’t accidentally go to Democrat Underground...sure reads like some of their stupid insulting remarks.”

Well it is going to become really annoying real soon. Since Jim Rob’s manifesto this morning, I am sure we will be seeing the closet Romney clan come out in droves. There will be the anti romney clan of course and well, like oil and water, they will not mix.

Don’t be silly.

That’s not a very effective way of trying to deny what I said.

Non-traditional reproduction and pregnancy termination is a great risk to society. Societies across the globe are experiencing the fallout from these on a massive scale. Reproduction is a fundemental, time-tested bedrock for preserval of the species and it’s very dangerous to mess with something like that. We now have a massive gender imbalance in China and aging, dying societies in every western country being replaced by unfriendly immigrant populations. We also have the possibility for single parents or homosexual couples to have children, an environment for raising children that is unproven and unlikely to be beneficial to their health. We also have the cheapening of life by reducing it to a test tube controlled in a laboratory. It gives human beings the power to make life and death decisions over our offspring, which can only lead to a moral coarsening towards respect for life and encourage infanticide, experimentation, abuse and exploitation of our young to create medicines for ourselves, etc. And then there’s Octomom...

They already have 3 other children that were not born via a surrogate.
This is what is puzzling without more information. They already had 3 children so this surrogacy thing is either creepy or suspicious. And I don't want it to be either as it will be a big distraction during the campaign.
