Newborn’s Birth Certificate Will List Gay Man and Lesbian Mothers as Parents

After a two-year court battle, a Florida circuit judge in Miami-Dade County approved a private adoption and will allow a gay man and a married lesbian couple to be listed on the baby girl's birth certificate, the Miami Herald reports.

Maria Italiano and her longtime partner Cher Filippazzo were married in Connecticut and Miami family lawyer Karyn J. Begin, who represented Massimiliano Gerina, the father of the 23-month-old girl, Emma, told the newspaper that the couple was having trouble conceiving via fertility clinics. The women decided to ask Gerina, a hairstylist, about fathering a child.

"It's nature - the same reason a woman wants to be a mother," said Gerina, who moved to South Flordia eight years ago and said he thought he could become a father. "It's not unusual here. Where I am from it's unusual. I grew up with the mentality that it would never happen," he said. "When I moved here, I saw gay couples, lesbian couples having families."

Gerina donated his sperm and Italiano soon became pregnant. After she gave birth, the women planned for Filippazzo to adopt the newborn and they would raise the child. About two weeks after Italiano found out she was with child the couple called Gerina and asked him to sign a contract.

"When they gave me the paper to sign that I had to give up all my rights to the baby, I didn't," he said.

According to Florida law, sperm donors do not have any parental legal rights but Gerina says he considers himself a parent and claims the couple "wanted a father for the baby, not just the sperm."

"My papers said I would have parental rights, a visitation schedule," he said. "They hated it. They said this wasn't what they wanted. I said, 'Now that you're already pregnant, you should have thought about that before.'"

After Emma was born on March 10, 2011, Gerina and the women faced off in court for nearly two years and a trial was scheduled for Jan. 31. But a week before the trial, the three of them and their attorneys settled privately.

Miami-Dade Circuit Court Jude Antonio Marin approved the settlement and the court adoption clerk submitted paperwork for their daughter's birth certificate, which lists Gerina, Italiano and Filipazzo as parents of Emma. Italiano, a retail saleswoman is listed as Emma's "sole parental responsibility," according to Begin, and Filippazzo, a financial services professional, legally adopted the girl.

As for Gerina, the state recognized him as Emma's father and for the next two years he can visit her twice a week. When she turns four, further visitations will be discussed.

"The mothers are in charge. I'm just going to spend time with her. They are the parents," Gerina said.

"We're creating entirely new concepts of families," Begin said. "If you have two women seeking to be listed as Parent One and Parent Two, that does not exclude listing a man as father."

The newspaper points out the three adults are considering giving Emma a brother or sister but Begin warns that they need to figure out the details before the women become pregnant.

"God forbid you don't put together a written agreement," Begin said. "I'll knock on your door and slap you all."

    A child can never have enough loving, caring people in his or her life.

    So how does a sperm donor all of a sudden believe he’s got parental rights?!?! The judge should’ve shown him the door with his idiocy and made him pay the women’s legal bills.

    I think it was mean spirited to cut him out when they had agreed differently in the beginning. If he had not had the agreement form from them at the start, he would have been just that: sperm donor

    Who`s going to teach the girl about `woman`s seed`? Feminism`s `politically correct` approach towards equality for lesbians, homosexual pederasty, and libertarianism are well represented. But what about the girl with the penis? Obviously the two women don`t want to reproduce with a woman, and neither does the pederast, so what are they doing with a baby human, who may be born with a penis of her own? Who`s supporting the alien education and information system? Parent one is a human woman with a penis, and parent two is her birth mother, while parent three is already pregnant. In Christianity the `teacher, guide, comforter and helpmeet` is the female Shekinah, that is, the `spirit of the law` of God, which is the continuator of Jesus` teachings of Redemption and immortality as the Holy Spirit/Paraclete, whereas news stories about pederasts and lesbians parenting women who they haven`t fathered isn`t educational, but a symptom of institutionalized misogyny. The Shekinah is the `spirit` of the composition, The Song of Songs which, because all art, civilization and culture ultimately comes from the womb of `Woman`, is the `spirit of God`: `The watchmen that go about the city found me: to whom I said, Saw ye him who my soul loveth?` (Songs: 3. 3) Through the `spirit of the law` of God, that is, the Shekinah, and Jesus` teachings of Redemption by means of this Holy Spirit/Paraclete, God has taught the love of `woman`s seed`, art, culture and civilization, which ultimately emerges from the womb of `Woman` as the human species on the planet Earth with her own penis and socio-economic valence as `futanarian`. Effectively, `Woman` is God`s `producer`, and God`s genius, but Mankind must accept her spiritual valence or perdition will ensue. In Revelation a `woman clothed with the sun and with the moon at her feet` gives birth to a child while a `red dragon` waits to devour the `New Redeemer`, because men are the devourer of the art, culture and civilization of the `woman`s seed`. In some biblical translations the serpent of Eden is described as the `crusher` of the head of Eve while she strikes at his heel, which is curious because it would be expected that the serpent would strike at the heel of its assailant. Moreover, the Douay-Rheims translation of the Bible describes Eve as crushing the head of the serpent before she leaves the Earth, which agrees with Revelation in which the `woman`s seed` receives a `new heaven and Earth` from God while the evil receive perdition. The serpent as `crusher` interpetation gains some credence from Saddam Hussein`s (1934-2009) name, which means `crusher` but, as Saddam was figuratively crushed by `Liberty`, that is, the USA, the Douay-Rheims translation, in which Eve is the crusher, despite the attentions of the serpent grown into the `red dragon` of Revelation, is more sensible. Although the World Trade Centre is a symbol of capitalism, which wants `ownership of the means of production`, `Woman` is the means, and `rough trade` is what the 9/11 2001 terrorists` attack on the Twin Towers of New York, by crashing hijacked planes into Manhattan island, aimed to restore. In ancient Greece homosexual pederasty spread its contagion of war by enslaving the `host` wombs of women and then attacking nearby city states for fresh female slaves. In the 20th century `rough trade` was the name used for homosexual pederasty, and Gulf War II (2001-212) resulted from Al Qaeda`s terrorism against New York on 9/11. If `rough trade` means `homosexual pederasty and war`, the World Trade Centre was the logical `restoration point` for the `serpent`s seed` and what God warns Eve of in Genesis (3. 15), that is, its `perpetual enmity` for `woman`s seed`. The `American Dream` is `life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness`, which is freedom and what `Woman` wants, as the human species enslaved by the parasitical aliens of homosexual pederasty that emerge from her host wombs. Feigning the virality of its wars against her as virility, but which God`s Revelation identifies for man as the consequences of its `witchery`, men have mixed their semen with blood and shit in anal sex to spread homosexual pederasty`s viral contagion of war and its `blood plague` (Rev: 16.3) of vendetta through HIV/AIDS to the very wombs of what God describes as the `perpetual` enemy of the `serpent`s seed` (Gen: 3. 15). The terrorist attack on New York`s World Trade Centre on 9/11, 2001, was a sign of the red dragon`s will to devour the `American Dream` and `Manifest Destiny`, but without traitors and betrayers it can`t win. Just as the HIV/AIDS` virus feigns friendship for the immune system of the body in order to kill it, so the 9/11 Al Qaeda terrorists feigned friendship for the USA before attacking it. At the `Last Supper` Jesus` offered fellowship to the disciples in the shape of `bread and wine`, which he called his `body and blood`, and Judas betrayed him to those who wanted to crucifiy him. In 21st century terms, having `broken bread` with the USA, the tourists from Arabia boarded `civil` aircraft at Boston and, hijacking htem, flew them to New York`s World Trade Centre where they crashed them into the Twin Towers. In sociological terms, betraying friendship is equivalent to the deliberate spreading of the disease HIV/AIDS and is closely associated with homosexual pederasty`s desire to enslave `Woman` as its `hosts` in its wars against art, culture and civilization, and which God defines for Eve in the Bible as the `perpetual enmity` of the `serpent`s seed` for `woman`s seed`. copyright

    Ok, this goes to the bible thumping idiot below who has absconded with the christian crystal ball. I think I passed your soothsayer/oracle in the plummers section of our harware store. It was searching for a new throne to sit upon and spew more BS. I do recall it saying something about homosexual pederasts taking over the world and to beware of short stocky men who sneek up behind you and try to shove a fast food chicken sandwich in your pie hole.
