This is so wrong!

Fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana made some VERY controversial comments in a magazine, calling children born through in-vitro fertilization, or IVF, "synthetic children". Elton John is now boycotting them, as he has every right to! Besides, I've seen pictures of their kids!! They are soooooo cute!!!!! I love babies sometimes!!!! :D :D
The Telegraph has stated that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana told an Italian magazine, Panorama, that they don't believe in using in-vitro fertilization, that they don't support this for creating families for gay couples. "We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus. Life has a natural flow; there are things that should not be changed. You are born to a mother and father; or at least that's how it should be." This was the quote that Dolce said. "I call children of chemistry synthetic children."

Elton John and longtime partner David Furnish have two children conceived using IVF. He took to Instagram to vent his opinions. "How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic.’ And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF — a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children". He also added "Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again". Rock on, Elton John!

They both fired back with separate statements. Dolce said "I’m Sicilian and I grew up in a traditional family, made up of a mother, a father and children. I am very well aware of the fact that there are other types of families and they are as legitimate as the one I’ve known. But in my personal experience, family had a different configuration. That is the place where I learnt the values of love and family. This is the reality in which I grew up, but it does not imply that I don’t understand different ones. I was talking about my personal view, without judging other people’s choices and decisions." While his partner expressed this: "We firmly believe in democracy and the fundamental principle of freedom of expression that upholds it. We talked about our way of seeing reality, but it was never our intention to judge other people’s choices. We do believe in freedom and love."

Sometimes people who are unable to conceive and who wants kids use this process. And besides, how many times do you hear about in the news or read in the paper about gay/lesbian parents beating their children to death, shaking their babies to death because they wouldn't stop crying, pushing their kids down stairs, stabbing their children to death because they wouldn't stop crying, getting their kids hooked on drugs or leaving their kids in hot cars to die while they run errands? I'll tell you-0.00% of the time! Most of the time, it's young, inexperienced, STRAIGHT parents who thought having sex was cool until a surprise came along nine months later. And the teens that become parents who end up as horrible parents give a bad name to the teen parents that become good parents. There are a lot of good teen parents out there who raise their kid(s) right.
