Elton John Calls For A Dolce & Gabbana Boycott Over In Vitro Fertilization Feud

Elton-John-DG

(PCM) A social media war has sprung up between singer Elton John and fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana over both the hot-button issues of gay marriage and in vitro fertilization. Both John and Dolce & Gabbana are calling for a boycott of each other’s brands and it is beginning to get ugly.

The feud began after designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana gave a recent interview and made comments criticizing the use of in vitro fertilization in the creation of babies saying “No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”

Dolce also added “You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that’s how it should be … I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from catalog.” Gabbana closed by remarking “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.”

Upon learning about Dolce & Gabbana’s comment, Sir Elton John was understandably infuriated and he and his husband David Furnish have two beautiful children as a result of the use of IVF. He slammed Dolce & Gabbana on social media saying “How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic.’ And shame on you for wagging your judgmental little fingers at IVF — a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana.”

Dolce & Gabbana’s comments are definitely surprising as both men are openly gay and were together in a relationship for nearly 20 years. However, both have spoken out in the past about being against same sex marriages and gay adoption.

Many other celebrities are standing behind John and supporting the Dolce & Gabbana boycott including Al Roker and Ryan Murphy. Dolce & Gabbana are calling for their supporters to boycott Elton John and even resorted to calling him a “fascist”. They claim that it was not their intention to judge anyone else’s choices and Dolce was speaking from his own family experience.

Baby Girl Born Pregnant With Twins

baby-twins

(PCM) A team of doctors in Hong Kong have revealed news about a new study done on a baby girl that was born back in 2010 with what they believed to be two tumors growing in her abdomen.  The study ended up revealing that the baby was born with a rare condition known as “fetus-in-fetu”, which caused her to be born “pregnant” with twins.

What the doctors has assumed to be tumors actually turned out to be two fetuses which were developed to about the stage of 8 to 10 weeks. They had arms, legs, a defined spine, rib cage, intestines, “primitive” brain matter and even an umbilical cord.

Obviously, the medical journal states that it would have been impossible for the baby to conceive on her own, so of course the fetuses were fertilized by the parents and it just went to the wrong place.

Apparently, “fetus-in-fetu” happens once in about every half million births, however it has only been reported about 200 times worldwide. The baby that was born with this condition in Hong Kong has recovered without any additional complications and will live a normal life despite the abnormal birth condition.

Father Refuses To Give Up Baby Born With Downs Syndrome

baby-leo

(PCM) Samuel Forrest, a New Zealand man living in Armenia, is making headlines after he refuses to give his newborn baby, born with Downs Syndrome, up for adoption.

When the child was born the doctor came out and said to Forrest, “There’s a real problem with your son” and then they took him back to see his son. Forrest responded to the doctor saying “He’s beautiful — he’s perfect and I’m absolutely keeping him”.

However, his Armenia wife had other ideas and informed Forrest that if he didn’t agree to put the baby up for adoption than she was going to leave him.  When he refused, the wife filed for divorce just one week after little Leo was born.

It seems that when a baby is born with Downs Syndrome in Armenia, the hospital gives parents the option right away of putting the baby up for adoption.  Forrests’ wife had already made that decision behind his back without first speaking with her husband.

In the country of Armenia, it is the social norm to be non-accepting of children born with certain birth defects and/or imperfections. The families often feel that an orphanage is a safe option for these children.  Hopefully with more awareness to these types of situations things can begin to change for the better in these areas of the world.

Even, the wife’s family was urging Forrest to put the child up for adoption and he was unfortunately no longer welcome in the family’s home.

Forrest who is a freelance business contractor will take baby Leo and move back in with his family who have agreed to help him out with raising the child.  He has also started a GoFundMe page to help raise some additional funds to assist with baby Leo’s care.

Forrest started out with a $60,000 target and has already well-surpassed that number garnering tons of supporters who were touched by this story across the globe.  Thus far Forrest has raised over $481,000! He plans to donate the additional funds received to help support abandoned children in Armenia and families with disabled children.

French Court Will Not Allow Parents To Name Their Child Nutella

Nutella1

(PCM) A French court has ruled against a couple who planned to name their baby girl Nutella. As many know, Nutella is a popular brand of chocolate and hazelnut spread. The court claimed that the name was unfit as it could lead to “unnecessary teasing and disparaging thoughts” for the child.

The child, who was born back in September, has been re-named to just “Ella”. While the laws in France have been a bit more lax in recent years when it comes to baby names, the court system still has the final say so in deciding whether or not that particular name is in the best interest of the child. In the U.S. these types of restrictions on baby names rarely exists.

In recent years, French parents have been able to creatively get away with naming their children after characters from the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones”, however when parents tried to name their child Babar (the cartoon elephant) and Fraise (strawberry) they were denied their name choices by the French courts.

Seven High School Girls End Up Pregnant After A School Trip

Pregnant1

(PCM) The parents of seven Bosnian high school girls are furious after their daughters returned home from a school trip to the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo and it was discovered that they are all pregnant at the same time.

The girls range in age from 13 to 15 years old and it was determined that they all conceived at some point during the five day school trip.  It appears that these students were definitely exploring more than just museums during the trip that was supposed to be for education purposes so that they could visit some of the various historical sites in the area.

The students parents are demanding answers from school officials as to why teachers and chaperons were not keeping a better eye on and supervising the girls during the trip.

However, many people are also questioning the parents role in teaching their children about sexual education, as it seems these students were not properly taught the lessons of safe sex .

According to several sources there is a growing trend of underage pregnancies in Bosnia therefore, others are claiming that it is both the school and the parents responsibility to work together at teaching the children effective sex education.

The issue in this story is definitely stirring up a lot of controversy around the world as many are debating just who exactly is responsible for the students actions. What do you think? Should the school or the parents be held accountable?
