"Synthetic children?"

Friday • "In the end, we will protect only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught."

So, Dolce and Gabbana recently went on the record as saying that "IVF results in children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteruses for rent, semen chosen from a catalog...I am gay, I cannot have a child. I guess you cannot have everything in life. Life has a natural course, some things cannot be changed. One is the family."

Seeing as how I have very close friends who have been surrogates for people who could not carry a child themselves, and friends and family who used IVF to complete their families- and several dear friends who were conceived using IVF themselves- I'm a little put off by the insinuation that children conceived by IVF are somehow less real or valuable than those conceived naturally. Those children are real, and they are loved dearly.
