Effects of defying God's plan 'not pretty at all'

Charlie Butts   (OneNewsNow.com) Friday, January 04, 2013

A pro-family expert says a Kansas child support lawsuit demonstrates what happens when God's plan for family is violated.

Crouse, Janice (CWA)Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America (CWA) tells OneNewsNow William Marotta donated sperm to a lesbian couple in 2009. A child was conceived and born. But since no physician was involved, the lesbians are now in court trying to force Marotta to pay child support. ( Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver comments on this case.)

"You see in this case … so many of the different problems related to all these new ways of having children for these families that are made up of same-sex couples," Crouse comments. "Somebody else has to be involved in the process with their children, and now we're seeing many of the ramifications -- and they're not very pretty at all."

Kansas law says a sperm or egg donor is not considered a child's parent if a doctor is involved in the artificial insemination. The CWA spokesperson says the real story is the best plan for family is that designed by God -- a design that has worked for thousands of years.

"Who are we to suddenly say that we have the intelligence and the insight and the modern discernment, to suddenly say, Oh, there are other family types that are just as good as what has stood for all this time and across so many different cultures," Crouse wonders.

She concludes that God is right and those who want to tinker with it are wrong. While the courts are to decide whether the Kansas donor will have to pay, Crouse believes the one who really pays a price is the child.
