Thanks to Gay Marriage, Recognizing Mothers and Fathers Is ‘Unconstitutional’

THEM BEFORE US — This is the worst “I told you so” ever.

In the committee hearing for Washington State’s Uniform Parentage Act (UPA) which will legalize commercial surrogacy, award parental rights to any adult(s) who can acquire a child through reproductive technologies, and make parenthood gender neutral, the bill’s sponsor stated what traditional marriage supporters have known all along: “redefining marriage redefines parenthood.” Around minute 54 Senator Pedersen says,

Then, 6-7 years ago now, we anticipated a lot of what’s in UPA 2017 and made most of our act gender neutral. We were the first of a number of states that have done that on their own. And then in reaction to the Obergefell decision by the US Supreme Court in 2015, the Uniform Law Commission decided that the current version of the parentage act was likely to be unconstitutional and began the process of rewriting it so that it would apply equally to same-sex couples.

Got that? When husbands and wives are optional in marriage policy, mothers and fathers become optional in parenting policy. Post-gay marriage, a law that recognizes both mothers and fathers as necessary to children is unconstitutional.  Looks like Washington State will follow in the footsteps of other nations which have sacrificed the rights of children on the pyre of adult desires.

Of course, no matter what the law states, you cannot legislate away a child’s longing for their mother and father.

Them Before Us formally opposes this bill.  Here’s my written testimony which highlights the numerous children’s rights violations in the UPA by contrasting it with adoption best practices.

If you’re in Washington State and think that children’s right should trump adult desires, instruct your senator to put Them (the kids) before Us (adults) and vote down SB 6037.

  1. Number 11 on the list of topics that were discussed earlier this month at Bilderberg is ‘The “post-truth” world’.
    They have re-defined truth until it is not truth any longer. Up is down and down is up. The resistance is weakening and the cattle are getting used to accepting ‘truth’ as whatever the powerful elite define it as. We are not allowed to use our critical faculties any more. The slaves could sing their songs in the cotton-fields. We can only mime what they dictate to us; if they enslave our minds, they don’t have to put us in chains.
