Quote# 52840

I used to work in Labor and Delivery before I became a SAHM and we had a lesbian couple who delivered. One time one partner delivered, and with the next baby, the other partner. (So each woman would get to experiance pregnancy and delivery)They too used a turkey baster but they didn't purchase the sperm. They got it from a male gay couple they knew.

They were VERRY open about their situation. They weren't just open...they LOOVED talking about it and would discuss it with any and everyone who came into contact with them.

Upon admission, they made a huge deal about giving us all these legal papers (power of attorney, etc) and made a huge deal that 2 mothers were listed on the birth certificate...and 2 fathers. (the gay male couple who had given the sperm). Upon delivery, the delivery room was full with all 4 members of this "family" present. They also insisted that armbands be made to include them all.

The other gay couple I knew of that delivered was a male couple. They had a surrogate. The mother who delivered was a young, married woman with 2 other children. She would not discuss the situation...said it was too painful. She always looked like she was about to cry. (Absolutely broke my heart).

However, the gay couple again, LOVED talking about it. They told us they had obtained a donor egg from another state, and had fresh breast milk flown in from another state. (Eww! Didn't even know you could do that until then). Upon delivery, the gay couple went into the postpartum area, while the birth mother was transferred to another part of the hospital.

ALL us nurses went home praying for the baby and birth mother.

This sounds a lot like the plot for Rick & Steve.

If that's true about the gay guys, at least they clearly have enough money to provide for a child's needs.

Are... are you implying that they made the woman carry their baby?

This smells like lies (specifically the last sentence).

Wow, new parents are excited and like talking about their new bundle of joy. Alert the media!!!

Doctor Whom

Do you mean to tell me that those people want the baby? That they are excited about being parents? Nnnnnooooooo!!!!!!

If the adoptive parents had been a childless heterosexual couple who wanted a child and got it through a surrogate because the woman was incapable of having a child, would that have made a difference? What's the issue here? That the surrogate had to give up the child per her agreement for which she was undoubtedly paid a very large sum of money, or that the people she was giving it up to were gay? If the latter, why not just say so, instead of trying to make it sound like "I'm not a bigot; I just feel bad for the surrogate who had to give up her child"?

You spelled it wrong. It's spelled "SHAM".

Bloody hell, where are they selling turkey basters from a sperm bank?

I thought women in infertile couples were impregnated using a mix of surgery and a laboratory where snowflakes are created...

I bet fundies would make the best authors of homo-erotic novels.

"I used to work in Labor and Delivery before I became a SAHM and we had a lesbian couple who delivered. One time one partner delivered, and with the next baby, the other partner. (So each woman would get to experiance pregnancy and delivery)They too used a turkey baster"

So, they should have used a chicken baster? An eye-dropper? Magic? What your problem?


"but they didn't purchase the sperm. They got it from a male gay couple they knew."

Would you be a happier camper if thet'd paid for the sperm? Paid double maybe?


"They were VERRY open about their situation."

Good. So what?


"They weren't just open...they LOOVED talking about it and would discuss it with any and everyone who came into contact with them."

Again, good. So what? Many new parents talk and talk and talk about all manner of baby-related topics, often as if they'd invented sex and babies.


"Upon admission, they made a huge deal about giving us all these legal papers (power of attorney, etc) and made a huge deal that 2 mothers were listed on the birth certificate...and 2 fathers. (the gay male couple who had given the sperm)."

So what? You're getting tiresome. You seem to be stunned and somewhat offended because these women were smart enough to cover all the bases.


"Upon delivery, the delivery room was full with all 4 members of this "family" present. They also insisted that armbands be made to include them all."

Yeah, yeah, yeah. You're offended because they had a larger than normal, supportive family. Bugger off.


"The other gay couple I knew of that delivered was a male couple. They had a surrogate."

That seems only prudent.


"The mother who delivered was a young, married woman with 2 other children. She would not discuss the situation...said it was too painful."

I bet she didn't really say that. I imagine what she said was along the lines of "It's really none of your business, do you job and STFU."


"She always looked like she was about to cry. (Absolutely broke my heart)."

Uh huh. Could it have been the pain of child birth that made her look that way. I've seen women in childbirth. It's not their most cheerful nor glamourous moment.


"However, the gay couple again, LOVED talking about it. They told us they had obtained a donor egg from another state, and had fresh breast milk flown in from another state."

So, they behaved as do many other new parents.


"(Eww! Didn't even know you could do that until then)."

I bet there are many, many things, basic human things that you don't have even the loosest grip on.


"Upon delivery, the gay couple went into the postpartum area, while the birth mother was transferred to another part of the hospital."

And you point is?


"ALL us nurses went home praying for the baby and birth mother."

Well, at least you did your part. I'm sure praying for them made a huge difference in their lives and those evil gay boys sure got theirs when they came to realize you hadn't prayed for them. That'll show 'em.

The only disturbing aspect of this post is that rabid fundies like this person are actually employed in the health care industry.

I would just like to take this one sentence fragment out of context:

"... we had a lesbian couple who delivered."


Thank you, and good night.

Excuse me, but is there a point hidden in there someplace?

Maybe I'm being a little sentimental but I thought it was nice that the two women included the male gay couple in the delivery and birth certificate. It's their baby as well. I hope they let the dads into the kids life, sounds like a loving family to me.

Better than a few poor kids that I'm familiar with, that would give anything to have a loving family. Whatever the sexual orientation of tht family.

I fail to see the problem here. The parents were ecstatic about the children they were going to raise. They wanted to share their happiness with everybody. Understandable if you are a human being with even a smidgen of empathy.

You, on the other hand, have deep psycho issues. Get help.

What kind of nurse thinks it's bad for parents to be happy about having a baby? You're demented. What about all the heterosexual parents who didn't want the baby and treat it like crap? Maybe you should worry more about them.

And as for the breast milk thing, how is that ewwwwww? For crying in a bucket, you're a nurse! Breastmilk is best for baby. In Australia they have breastmilk banks where women donate spare milk for babies whose mothers can't breastfeed. It's not gross it's generous and helpful. Honestly, you sound like a child. ewwwww breast milk, it comes from boobies. Grow up!

LOOVED?

Dictionary?

"She would not discuss the situation...said it was too painful. She always looked like she was about to cry. (Absolutely broke my heart)."

Those gays...always stealing young mother's children at gay-point. Intimidating women, destroying families, converting babies to their militant homosexual agenda...I've had it!

I don't understand how people can be grossed out by breast milk. I mean, really, what the hell did they think breasts were for?

However, the gay couple again, LOVED talking about it.
NO DUH! THEY JUST HAD A BABY YOU FUCKING IDIOT!
They have a new family now, of course they loved talking about it.

The whole sentiment of this post is summed up in how she describes breast milk as "eww!".

@Pyena, remember, this was supposedly written by a nurse!
