Compare and Contrast: Romney vs Obama on LGBT Surrogacy

on November 2, 2012

Barak ObamaWhile former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is claiming that children born to LGBT couples are “just wrong”, President Barak Obama is showing his support to Gay Marriage legislation in 3 states this election cycle.

“Some gays are actually having children born to them. It’s not right on paper. It’s not right in fact.”  — Mitt Romney

That quote came from Mitt Romney as governor of Massachusetts, justifying his attempt to block court ordered changes to state procedures denying same sex couples the ability to create families.

Contrast that to President Obama’s public support for Gay marriage in general, and his recent specific endorsement of LGBT family initiatives in 3 states.

I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” — Barack Obama

Mitt RomenyWhile the president does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the president believes in treating everyone fairly and equally, with dignity and respect,” said an Obama spokesman.

In a series of campaign emails, the president unsurprisingly lent his support to three state-level ballot measures that would allow same-sex marriages: in Main, Washington and Maryland.

In Washington and Maryland, voters will vote on LGBT marriage laws previously passed by the respective state legislatures. Maine would be the first state to legalize gay marriage by a vote if the measure is successful.
