(LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life conservatives have encountered a bizarre rebuttal to their justified indignation over same-sex surrogacy. Critics have alleged that conservatives like Allie Beth Stuckey aren’t authentically pro-life, or that they somehow disregard life’s value by opposing the practice of same-sex couples custom-ordering human beings.
But surrogacy in itself is a direct affront to the value of human life and its inherent dignity. Besides leading to the destruction of embryos, surrogacy manipulates the beauty of family and reproduction while commodifying both mother and child in the process.
Take, for example, the same-sex couple featured in a video that caught attention last summer, discussing the various factors they considered while searching for an egg donor. “So, we wanted her to have lovely big eyes,” one of the men says while holding the baby. “I wanted her to have really thick hair because I’ve had two hair transplants. I wanted her to have a really wide nice smile and to look like a kind person.” The other man interjected: “Yeah, and we wanted her to be creative because we love the arts.”
Dave Rubin, meanwhile, has compared the process of finding an egg donor to searching for mates on the hook-up app Tindr. And he’s right. Both Tindr and egg “donation” (which is a lucrative market) treat people as objects to be purchased or efficiently consumed in the marketplace. Rather than honoring woman’s procreative abilities, the Tindr-esque model exploits her body.
More recently, a BBC journalist reinforced the cold commodification of human life by describing his and his partner’s new baby as “hand luggage.” These types of statements point to a fundamentally self-centered view of relating to the most vulnerable among us.

Dave Rubin (left) hosts one of the most popular conservative chat-shows on YouTube, but we now know his views are as extreme as many on the left.
Not only are Rubin and his homosexual partner using surrogate mothers to bear two babies, thus deliberately depriving the children of their true mothers' care once born, but he also admitted those babies would have been aborted if found to have severe disabilities.
SIGN the petition telling Dave Rubin that true conservatives protect life and uphold the right of children to be raised by their mothers.
Mr. Rubin recently said he also supports abortion up until 12 weeks, compounding the regrettable pro-eugenics stance he has taken towards unborn babies with severe disabilities.
There are few things more tragic in our world today than the disposable attitude of many people towards innocent human life, but that is exactly what Rubin thinks is acceptable.
This must be called out - it's simply abhorrent to treat the disabled, the unwanted, and the vulnerable with such callous disregard.
Tell Dave Rubin that his pro-eugenics views have no place in a humane society.
Can you imagine finding out your parents would have aborted you if you had a severe disability?
Well, that's unfortunately what will happen to the children Rubin raises if they someday read his latest book, "Don't Burn This Country".
There he shares that he and his family's decision would have been to "terminate the pregnancy" if a severe disability was found in one of the babies now being borne by their surrogate mothers.
Rubin must understand how cruel this entire situation is, not only for the mothers and their children who will be taken away, but also for disabled people to know they are essentially thought of as "lives unworthy of life."
Real conservatives must speak up now and tell Rubin that his pro-abortion views are abhorrent.
Mr. Rubin's public split with the left is to be welcomed, but "conservative" leaders like him will do much more harm than good if they continue using their platform to undermine the family and the right of children to be born.
If we let these cornerstones of society be attacked from within, what hope have we of building a culture we can be proud to hand on?
Make a stand today for unborn children and their mothers - tell Dave Rubin that he's wrong.
True conservatives cannot afford to take the easy shortcut of ignoring Rubin's cruel position, lest we continue to be shunted further left, becoming radical liberals in everything but name.
So, please SIGN and SHARE this petition today,

Without an eye toward God, the practice of generating new human life becomes another tool in our pursuit of self-actualization or lifestyle fulfillment – something reflected in Rubin’s discussion with Daily Wire host Jordan Peterson last year. Rubin framed his pursuit of surrogacy – at least in part – in terms of not wanting to be just another aging homosexual who goes to bars in his free time.
What happens, though, if or when those children become less appealing in Rubin’s scheme of self-actualization? Or what if the baby mentioned above turns out to not be the creative, artistic type that her new “parents” hoped she would be?
It’s unclear but, perhaps shedding light on the “pro-life” aspect of this debate, Rubin has already said he would have aborted the children if they had severe disabilities. It’s also worth mentioning that the process of in vitro fertilization is itself dehumanizing and usually results in embryos that are later destroyed.
Rather than seeking to remedy an existing need, same-sex couples are creating new ones via surrogacy. They are deliberately choosing to bring life into a disordered family structure where the children will likely be measured against how much they’ve fulfilled their parents’ interests. They will also face legal and logistical barriers inpursuing the extremely important maternal-child bond.
Nonetheless, Rubin has portrayed himself as a “hero.” And, like others on social media, he has managed to feel comfortable advancing same-sex surrogacy as a conservative position. It’s hard to imagine the same happening 20 or even, maybe, 10 years ago.

But the GOP and current conservative movement have developed such distorted priorities that same-sex surrogacy now seems like a natural evolution rather than aberration from its ideology — which, at this point, appears to consist in some kind of vague pursuit of “freedom” and capitalism rather than being anchored in traditional values.
Among other things, RNC-sponsored pride month has signaled to young Republicans that they can pursue sexual deviance and abandon traditional morality so long as they oppose wokeness and tax hikes. Amplifying that signal, the party’s last president — Donald Trump — recently joined congressional Republicans in backing legislation that affirmed “gay marriage.”
It’s worth mentioning that despite having Republican majorities in Congress, Trump never fulfilled his campaign promise to defund Planned Parenthood. What he did make sure to do, though, was slash tax rates for corporations and massively deregulate the economy. As an individual policy, deregulation and tax cuts may be economically powerful. It doesn’t seem inevitable either that, as some have suggested, persistent deregulation would engender amorality in personal choices in addition to economic ones. But in abandoning traditional morality and emphasizing that of the market, Republicans have guided their voters to supplant the former with the latter.
Under this framework, it makes sense that “families” would no longer respect natural law and God. Instead, guided by a near-totalizing mentality of the market, they exploit technology and utilize human life in a way that helps them efficiently realize their “American dream” and whatever that’s supposed to mean in its current iteration.
