Sperm Banks, Rent a Belly and other silly ways to create the human product
Well I consider myself as a very open minded person and I'm young too which makes things easiear to accept but I trully cannot understand and even respect certain things that happen in this world: I was doing zapping in a dull saturday night and I stopped for no reason at the BBC channel, there was a new about a sperm bank in Copenhagen and then a young man talked: the director of the bank and showed the place: a room full of centrifuges, and cold storage compartments full of sperm to be given to women that cannot get pregnant or have difficulties to do that, or women married with a man that cannot pregnant her but they want to have a baby so bad that they resort to these banks, or even women that cannot (or don't want) to get a man for nothing but they want to have a baby as a natural process thing instead of adopting children or small babies abandoned or orphans, they want to get pregnant, have their belly swelling and getting bigger and bigger...and then calve! Natural process with the help of generous professionals in the science of creating (or should I say playing?) with life.
I thought I couldn't be more disgusted than I was but then they showed in that laboratory where all the information was processed: women could choose how they wanted their children to look like by checking on the data base of the clinic the characteristics of the sperm donor (most of them anonymous) and I saw that: blue eyes (available or not available), green eyes, brown eyes, white skin, dark skin, blonde hair, brown hair,etc etc...well this thing has a name it's called: Eugenics.
Well let's see the definition of Eugenics in the wikipedia:
"Eugenics is the applied science or the biosocial movement which advocates the use of practices aimed at improving the genetic composition of a population,usually referring to human populations. Eugenics was widely popular in the early decades of the 20th century,but by the late 20th century it had fallen into disfavor, having become associated with Nazi Germany.Both the public and some elements of the scientific community have associated eugenics with Nazi abuses, such as enforced "racial hygiene", human experimentation, and the extermination of "undesired" population groups. However, developments in genetic, genomic, and reproductive technologies at the end of the 20th century have raised many new questions and concerns about the meaning of eugenics and its ethical and moral status in the modern era, effectively creating a resurgence of interest in eugenics"
How can we accept and respect this behaviour, then?
I can't understand seriously! And I have no religion, I don't even believe in God so this has nothing to do with a religious view because I don't have one, this has to do with moral, respect for life, respect for the people and for their dignity, Eugenic is totally wrong and unacceptable, people cannot create a human being choosing it as a clothe from a store!!! Eugenics is scientific racism and it should be a crime....
And what about the sperm donors? why do they do that? because they think they are doing some good deed? or are they paid to give that? (I bet they are). Selling your genes, selling your sons to the BANKS...this world has no hope it's the end of the line this is just lost and sad...
If I was a kid of some of that scam mothers I wouldn't forgive them to make me come to the world with the genes of someone that created me but no one will ever know who was and maybe because he just sold his sperm to win a couple of bucks as he beat a wank...seriously I'm so sorry for this language but this is the true about this stupid and rotten world.
And then they showed a photo group of the women with children that had come to that clinic to do their babies, some of them even went there with the kids to tell them where they were made...
And we're talking about a clinic in Copenhagen in the developed Denmark...although I know this kind of clinics are almost everywhere. What must be the slogan of that centre then? "We have the best sperm in town!!Buy two packs now and get a discount of 20%".
Well our bio engineers and geneticists need a job and that woman need to obbey to their biological clock! That's how it is and in the end it is a good deal because that clinics employ many people and even pay the taxes...
Other shocking thing is what's happened in India (this is other new I saw long ago), infertile couples form the Occident pay indian women to rent their bellies, because they cannot have a kid so they look forward to a fertil woman that can carry their little seeds: his spermatozoon and her ovule...and voilá a kid just like them, son of them, their flesh and bone, blodd of their blood... that kid just came out of an indian's vagina...so everybody is happy, the couple form the occident: the project financiers have their 100% (?) blood baby and the indian woman was just a oven in which that small creature was developed and came out to this wonderful world! The indian woman gets paid and then she can feed their own children. Do you know why they go to India instead of doing the same process in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia or other damn rich fucking hedious nations? because in the underdeveloped countries as India this "process" (baby made take away) is cheaper, on average an indian woman receives about 800 Euros for the process of gestation (less than 100 euros per month!).
Artificial Insemination is in my opinion a stupidity too if people can't have children they should give their love and confort to children that need it, there are lots of unloved children in the orphanages, children that were mistreated, abandoned or who their parents died. But nooooooo, people are narcissistic enough to want to make someone who looks like them, so they can leave a mark in the world when they die, so this genetic inheritance process can be going on through the end of times (even knowing that this actual generation of adults are selfish and don't really care about leaving a world in good conditions to their sons, they put their responsability on them and say that: "Now we can't do anything, is you that have to change this!").
I just wish people could have more respect for themselves and for life, this world as it is now makes me wanna die so I can escape to this filthy world that I hate.
Life and people are not a business!
