Better to have two loving female parents than the all too frequent scenario of having a father who dominates the household with aggression, bullying, over-competitiveness and the hideous risks of paedophilia and domestic violence.
The change reflects the fact that in a heterosexual couple when the woman is inseminated with donor sperm the man is treated as the father even though he has no biological link to the resulting child. Male gay couples who have children via surrogate mothers or by adoption are not covered by the new legislation.
The Bill says that where there is reference to the father of a child such as on birth certificates this is to be read as reference to the female parent who did not give birth.
It will also say for the first time that babies born through fertility treatment do not need to have a father figure and parents will be banned from choosing the sex of their child.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1996358/Two-mother
