NYCF: Children are not commodities

Rev. Jason McGuire, executive director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms (NYCF), tells OneNewsNow it is a big issue with Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), whose 2020 agenda proposes to include a plan offering contractual surrogacy in New York -- where women may be impregnated and carry someone else's baby for hire.

"We see that highly problematic because it's not only exploitive of women, but it also makes children commodities rather than protecting their best interests," Rev. McGuire contends.

In 2013, the governor successfully campaigned for legalization of same-gender marriage, but McGuire says that was not all that he was after.

"We then began to see him make efforts towards this," McGuire relays. "Some of his counselors have been pushing very hard for this, and this is an effort to then bring children to many of these same-sex couples."

But McGuire's group does not believe this is what God has intended for the family. "That's something that ... we are seeking to defend," he says.

There is no biblical argument that would indicate a man could be a mother or that a woman could be a father to a child.

Gestational surrogacy is currently banned by law in New York.
