    This story tells us of why lesbians playing make believe with the lives of children is a terrible thing. In Kansas in 2009 three amoral people, two lesbians and a male of unidentified sexual orientation colluded to create a homemade baby. The male provided his sperm and the two lesbian mommies used it to impregnate lesbian “Mommy Jennifer” Schreiner. The two Mommies, Mommy Angela Bauer and her honey Mommy Jennifer made contact with the donor William Marotta, through Craig’s List saying, “We are foster and adoptive parents and now we desire to share a pregnancy and birth together.” Presumably using...

More than 15 of those have already attempted to contact 33-year-old Ben Seisler. The donor confessed to his fiancée as part of a new reality show, Sperm Donor, that aired on the Style Network on Tuesday. Seisler donated sperm for three years while attending law school at George Mason, Virginia. He earned around $150 per donation.

    Both women in lesbian couples with children should be given compulsory paternity and maternity leave, under proposals tabled in the European Parliament. Euro-MPs will vote next month on European Union legislation to give conventional fathers and gay second mothers mandatory rights to two weeks off work if their partner gives birth. MEPs on the parliament's women's rights committee have amended European Commission proposals on "paternity/co-maternity" parental rights to reflect "different types of family structure", including homosexual couples.

    In a remarkable op-ed appearing in the Washington Post, a young woman named Katrina Clark explains what it's like to know that you are the child of an anonymous sperm donor. It's not fun. The essay could be Exhibit A in any argument about the morality of artificially assisted human reproduction. The child of a loveless, sterile union between gametes speaks with authority when she reminds us that nobody asked for her opinion on the circumstances of her birth. Her mother (whom she still admires) got the baby she wanted. But the baby didn't get a father she could know....

    Mary Cheney’s pregnancy poses problems not just for her child, but also for all Americans. Her action repudiates traditional values and sets an appalling example for young people at a time when father absence is the most pressing social problem facing the nation. With 37 percent of American children born to fatherless families, Mary Cheney is contributing to a trend that is detrimental to all Americans who will live with the ramifications of millions of children whose anger and frustration at not knowing their father will be felt in the public schools and communities of our nation. Mary Cheney is...

    Mary Cheney, the vice president's openly gay daughter, is pregnant. She and her partner of 15 years, Heather Poe, are "ecstatic" about the baby, due in late spring, said a source close to the couple. It's a baby boom for grandparents Dick and Lynne Cheney: Their older daughter, Elizabeth, went on leave as deputy assistant secretary of state before having her fifth child in July. "The vice president and Mrs. Cheney are looking forward with eager anticipation to the arrival of their sixth grandchild," spokesman Lea Anne McBride said last night. Cheney, 37, was a key aide to her father...

    SAN DIEGO -- The Rev. Jesse Jackson said Major League Baseball and San Diego police failed to protect Barry Bonds and should be trying to find out who threw a syringe at him in the Giants' opener Monday night in San Diego. The syringe was thrown near Bonds as he came off the field following the eighth inning. He picked up the object, which was about the size of a large magic marker, and carried it off the field. Jackson said the fan should have been arrested. He added the object could have had a needle in it and could...

    SAN DIEGO, (AP) -- A state appeals court ruled that two fertility doctors had the right to refuse to artificially inseminate a lesbian based on her marital status because it would have violated their religious beliefs. Friday's ruling reversed a lower court decision that Drs. Christine Brody and Douglas Fenton could not use religion as a defense against a lawsuit filed by Guadalupe Benitez. The panel found that the doctors were within their rights because they based their decision on Benitez's unmarried status and that discrimination based on marital status is not prohibited by state law. Benitez, 33, sued the...

    Katie Holmes Continues Purge of Inner Circle Katie Holmes fired her publicist of nearly eight years on Tuesday. During her conversation with Leslie Sloane-Zelnick, Holmes did not mention that she was pregnant by fiancé Tom Cruise. The next day, the news broke.

And let's not forget the broken engagement to actor Chris Klein back in March. That's a lot of activity for seven months. Where does that leave our Katie? I'm told that Holmes...

    NEWARK, N.J. -- From the moment they held hands, pledged their love and signed documents in New York registering themselves as domestic partners, Kimberly Robinson and Jeanne LoCicero considered themselves a family. And when they decided to have a baby through artificial insemination, the Essex County couple wanted the courts to consider them one as well. On Wednesday, they got their wish. In a first-of-its kind ruling in New Jersey, a judge granted LoCicero full co-parenting rights to the baby Robinson bore, without having to go through lengthy adoption proceedings. Thus, they will both be listed as parents on the...
  • Seattle zoo tries to inseminate elephant

    SEATTLE - A ticklish business, artificially inseminating an elephant. With the help of high-tech ultrasound and computer gear, special protective clothing, wheelbarrows and not a little cooperation from Chai, a 26-year-old Asian elephant, Woodland Park Zoo officials hope the complicated process led by two German scientists will result in the pachyderm giving again birth, as she did four years ago. Chai got pregnant by natural means last time around, but it wasn't all candy and flowers. She had to endure the stress of getting shipped off to a zoo in Missouri, where some of her fellow elephants showed her hostility....

    A woman who gave birth to a child months before entering a same-sex civil union in Vermont is appealing a court ruling that granted parental standing to her former partner. Cheryl Barlow, who says she no longer is a lesbian, was united with Keri Jones, both residents of Utah, five months after Barlow became pregnant by artificial insemination in 2001. But the relationship ended in 2003 after Barlow discovered Jones was seeing another woman. Jones then sued for parental visitation rights to Barlow's child and was granted favor by Judge Timothy Hanson in Utah's 3rd District Court in Salt Lake...

    I have terrible taste in men. But whenever I pictured my future, I saw myself with children -- and that, of course, takes a man (at least for the conception part). So sometime in my early 30s, I began a quest to find a partner. I did the online dating thing. I asked friends about their single pals. I even dated my butcher, figuring at least we'd never go hungry. But the men I met, maybe I'm too picky, but nobody satisfied. So I decided that if I didn't meet someone by the time I was 35, I'd have kids...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Comedienne and former talk-show host Rosie O'Donnell (news) on Thursday announced plans for what is billed as "the first gay cruise with family values." During the cruise, which will depart New York for the Bahamas on July 11, gay and lesbian passengers will be able to learn about topics like adoption and artificial insemination. O'Donnell, recently in the headlines over a bitter court battle with the publisher of the magazine named after her, said the first offering from R Family Vacations would be a weeklong cruise on the new Norwegian Dawn cruise liner.
