Married Couple Pays Surrogate to Have Baby, They Keep The Healthy Daughter But Refuse the Down Syndrome One – Also: Cops: the Dad is a Convicted Pedo

Married Couple Pays Surrogate to Have Baby, They Keep The Healthy Daughter But Refuse the Down Syndrome One – Also: Cops: the Dad is a Convicted Pedo

And many conservative Christians routinely say or assume that marriage makes a person godly, mature, more loving, and immune from sexual sin, and that you have to be perfect and godly to even merit a spouse to start with (God doesn’t send imperfect people spouses, they say).

Hmm. Then how would Christians explain this selfish married couple who
1. won’t accept the Down’s Syndrome twin from the surrogate
and
2. the father is a convicted kid-diddler (pedophile)?

How is it that God rewards child molesters with spouses, but not law abiding, non-perverted singles?

    Australian authorities were Wednesday investigating the father at the centre of a Thai surrogate baby scandal who was exposed as a convicted paedophile, to determine whether his young daughter is at risk.

    The man, from Bunbury south of Perth, sparked global controversy for apparently abandoning his Down’s syndrome baby boy, Gammy, in Thailand and taking only his healthy twin sister back home, although he and his wife dispute the circumstances.

    In another twist to a story that has generated fierce debate on the moral and legal basis of international surrogacy, reports emerged Tuesday that the man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has convictions for child sex offences.

    Australian media widely reported that the 56-year-old electrician was convicted for sexually molesting three girls.

    State broadcaster ABC said he was jailed for three years for molesting two girls under the age of 10 when he was in his twenties. He was also accused in 1997 of another six charges of indecently dealing with a child and reportedly imprisoned for 18 months.

    The court heard the victims, two young girls aged seven and 10, would visit him at his Bunbury home, where he would meet with them secretly in the garden shed and touch them. On three occasions, he encouraged the girls to commit an indecent act upon him.

    The victim impact statements obtained from the two girls, who were adults at the time of the hearing, said they suffered emotional problems, depression and sexual problems.

    “None of that is surprising because you, by your conduct, robbed these girls of their childhood,” Judge O’Sullivan said in sentencing.

    Farnell was sentenced to three years’ jail.
