Before continuing or concluding my discussion of the Catholic Church and "romantic homosexual relationships," it is worth taking some time to consider two objections to the Natural Law/Theology of the Body argument which I have outlined out so far. I will limit myself to two objection because of time constraints.
The objection might here be put forth: what about artificial
insemination, or for that matter "test-tube" babies, clones, or other
forms of "manufacturing"  a human being? A lesbian couple, at least,
can reproduce using modern technology—cloning and cell re-programming
and artificial insemination and whatnot—so is God not then present in at
least these forms of union? Well, yes, in a sense He is, for He is
needed to create the soul, the form which goes with the new body, the
new human being which does come into existence when these are processes
There are, however, several moral problems with this scenario. The
first is that there are generally far more new human beings created in
these processes than actually implanted—the rest and frozen or thrown
out, discarded. This alone—this trampling of the dignity of man, this
callous use of human beings—is enough to make it morally abhorrent, not
only to Catholics but to anybody else who recognizes the truth of the
situation: namely that human beings are created and then discarded with
nary a thought of their inherent worth.
