    I've actually had two female friends offer to be a surrogate for me if I ever need one. I didn't even have to ask.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    If I wanted to "pork em" then I would just marry one of them.

    adoption is only incredibly expensive if you want a cute baby girl from china or a little Romanian boy. If you go through your state department of human resources it doesn't cost much of anything. We adopted both of our younger sons through DHR and the state not only paid all the court costs, but they also pay us a monthly stipend for each boy until they turn 18.


    the only thing I had to pay was a $25 fee to have new birth certificates made

    so then you will have to pay a clinic to do the artificial insemination, yes?

    also, if they are just going to be a "baby momma" why would you have to marry them?

    Oh for pete sake. I get your point. It could be more costly than just adopting from the state. That is easy for you to say. You are in a heterosexual relationship, likely married. It's different for gay couples.

    no different than for single parents.

    but let's get back to your friends. if they are willing to surrogate for you, why not just "do the deed" instead of going the whole AI route? It's not like it's just "casual sex" you are doing it for a purpose.

    what is the big deal?

    It's gross. I'm not even sure I would physically be capable of doing it.

    Once again: easier said than done for a lot of people, depending on where you live. The legal fees here to make it happen are quite expensive, and very, very, very rarely (though not banned) have gay couples been able to adopt (unless one is already a biological parent).

    Thus a surrogate would be easier for many couples.

    I'm glad Alabama makes it easy (at least for straight married couples).

    really? if the only way I could get a kid, and I really wanted one of "my own", was to have gay sex...I'd suck a dick in a heartbeat, no matter how gross I think it is.
