They will not know which way to turn .

is ignorant. If you knew any LGBT people personally then you wouldn't be saying such things.
3. Enough Mulling: Surrogacy now!

Because it is good, right, just, and merciful. We are not America!
4. Traumatic

For two men to have children one woman must donate the ovum and another qwoman must lease her womb to carry the pregnancy. Both men may be sperm donors but only one is the biological father, the other is a biological outsider. The two women who provided the ovum and womb will never know their baby and the baby will never know its mother, only its two fathers. Would it not be less traumatic to adopt a Jewish child and have one less Jewish abortion?
5. #4 - It's Up to the Individual

Some couples prefer adoption, some prefer surrogacy. Your comment has less to do with same-sex surrogacy and more to do with surrogacy in general. Furthermore, you make it sound like these women are suffering... No one is forcing these women to donate their eggs or to carry a baby to term. They are doing it of their own free will. Keep in mind, in most cases, these women receive a pretty nice paycheck. I am excited that my husband and I may be able to have a child together soon, and now even more so that we can possibly do it here!
