Schiff Wants to Use Taxes to Subsidize Gay Pregnancy

The Democrats continue to weaponize the administrative state, from the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago to the vast expansion of the Internal Revenue Service.

Shortly after Congress voted, with no Republican support, to expand the IRS by 87,000 new employees, Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Judy Chu of California introduced a bill to use the IRS as a vehicle to redefine infertility.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Under the Equal Access to Reproductive Care Act, same-sex couples and single men would be able to “deduct assisted reproductive care, including surrogacy, as a medical expense on their tax returns, without having to demonstrate a medical/physical infertility.”

Schiff’s press release goes so far as to equate the pain felt by fertile, same-sex couples with the pain felt by infertile male-female couples.

Typically, the tax deduction is available for men and women after they are diagnosed as infertile. That’s based on “the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse.”

Schiff claims that failing to offer fertile, same-sex couples an infertility benefit is a form of discrimination. But, of course, such men are not infertile. They aren’t biologically deficient. After all, no two men can conceive a child together.

The Californians’ bill would provide generous tax deductions to affirm an illusion. 

By replacing the biological definition of infertility, groups like Men Having Babies are pushing to redefine “infertility” on the federal and state level. Their most recent efforts, in Illinois, resulted in the state redefining infertility to include “a person’s inability to reproduce either as a single individual or with a partner without medical intervention; or … based on a patient’s medical, sexual, and reproductive history.”

That treats infertility as a matter of personal feeling and preference.

Why does that matter?

For one thing, the bill would expand and normalize the use of surrogacy, which is not just another natural way to bear children. It is a complex process involving as many as five different actors, and one that raises all sorts of medical and moral concerns.

For instance, when a same-sex couple uses anonymous sperm or egg donations, they deprive the resulting child of either a mother or father. Male same-sex couples also need a surrogate to undergo dangerous hormone stimulations and a pregnancy.

That transforms an intimate, natural process into a commercialized, order-on-demand market.

That is also not like adoption and foster care. Both of those processes match the needs of children with a loving home. Surrogacy laws, in contrast, do not mandate background checks or home visits to ensure the child is being born to safe, loving parents.

As a consequence, it’s not uncommon to hear heartbreaking stories of male-commissioned surrogate children used for child pornographypedophilia, or living in homes with men who have histories of sex-related crimes.

Under the innocuous title of “reproductive care,” commercial surrogacy (that is, surrogacy contracted for compensation) relies on male same-sex couples and single men “renting” the womb of a woman.

A recent photo shoot in New York City captured the problem, if unwittingly. It pictured two men looking into each other’s eyes while a pregnant woman stood off in the background, her own face obscured. Rather than recognize the biological reality of conception, pregnancy, and childbearing, this image revealed how surrogacy turns a mother into a commodity.

Women in these arrangements are no longer called “mothers” but instead “gestational carriers,” who offer rent-a-womb services to the highest bidder. (And the price is high.)

The Schiff-Chu bill implies that each person has a right to a child, no matter the circumstances. But children are not accessories. They deserve the chance to be raised by both a mother and a father.

Yes, some children, due to abandonment, death, or unsafe environments, are raised without one or both parents. In those cases, priority is given to adoption, foster care, and community-level support for single parents.

In contrast, same-sex and single-parent surrogacy conceives a child through artificial means. The goal is to raise the child without a mother or without a father. In either scenario, children are more likely to encounter physical or sexual abuse and suffer academic, emotional, and other harms throughout their lives.

Surrogacy, by design, severs the natural ties of children to their parents.

By redefining infertility, the Equal Access to Reproductive Care Act pushes a reproductive illusion, compromises the well-being of children, and commodifies women.

  1. The man is up to something. He lied to congress already and is not in jail. His son was laundering money for him in Ukraine and he and many get away with that.

    • You are so right. They should pay their own way if they want to go against nature–it is a violation of my rights to be forced to pay for this lunacy. This is typical Democrat nonsense–ask for stupid things and expect someone else to pay for it. NUTS !!

  2. Isn’t he wonderful so damn compassionate..
    His eyes look that way cause he even amazes
    Himself with his lunacy.. one in a million ..

  3. How insanely retarded! Schiff is either sniffing too much glue, or the man has totally lost touch with biological reality like the rest of the Alphabet crowd, who think that they can defy the laws of nature- and they want to use Taxpayer’s money for this unsound fantasy? the more that our country starts to overindulge in the LGBTQ insanity, the more divided we become! But trying to use Tax money to fund a biological impossibility is not only foolish but totally non-reality-and stupid! men CANNOT have babies, that is exclusive only to females, but the Alphabet community sure loves to believe their own lies, and that’s their problem- but using Tax money is a whole other matter, and Adam Schiff needs to be shown the door, along with anybody who tries to push an absurd and abnormal idea like this, by using Tax money in such an insane way! LGBTQs are still men and women, and their failure to accept that biological reality has only one entitlement-mental health therapy!

    • Exactly right. While he suggests using taxes for this, China and Russia are arming massive armies of fighting males. Crazy.

  4. We need to win big in midterm and
    Get rid of this clown schiff Biden
    And the rest perverted idiots shumer wicked of the xx west pelosi!! Jw

  5. They want to bail out student loans. Now they want us to pay for gay couples to get pregnant. Personally, I’m getting sick and tired of this Administration wanting the working folks to bail everyone out. Should we have the taxpayers pay for people to adopt stray dogs and cats next? People need to pay for their own shit. Period!

  6. If the taxpayers are stupid enough to elect these cultists, there will be no end to what they want taxpayers to pay for. Next it will be sex changes, boob jobs, whatever science can come up with to divert money from what nature created for humanity. Throughout history, peoples and cultures rise and fall. The quicker they deviate from what nature developed over eons of time, the quicker the society will fall. While this nation and “alleged” leaders contemplate paying tax dollars for such things, our enemies are paying for massive armaments and armies of fighting males.

  7. I have an idea! How about gay men pay gay women to have babies for them. Because that is the ONLY way homosexuals can biologically reproduce.

  8. Seems like our country is being taken over by lunatics and illegal aliens. When our drs. can define a woman and a supreme court justice can’t. What is this world coming to. Now the president wants to forgive student loans, I wish he could have been here before 1970, and let them get a better position to get another loan!

  9. NO money to anything ,that is not considered NORMAL! And gay men cannot get pregnant period. And of they say, they were transgender, that means that they were just women and nothing else and they were NOT a MAN!!
    God created man and woman, God did NOT create Adam and David, neither did God create Eve and Ava!! Stop messing up the world more and more and giving to satan what belo
    ngs to GOD only!!

  10. Schiff is a sick person and a Pedophile. How can we as Americans let this guy stay in office? Schiff has got to go. And to think we are paying him . Time for him to get unemployment .

  11. This is as stupid as his proclaiming that one-sided questioning and witnesses who only agree with him in the impeachment witch-hunt make for a fair trial. He certainly does not display a sense mental stability and love for God and our country.
