Gay Israeli Dad Can Return From India With Twin Sons After Proving He’s Not a Pedophile

After weeks of protest and several months spent rotting in a Mumbai hotel, the bigoted Israeli courts have finally confirmed that Dan Goldberg isn’t a pedophiliac serial killer and have granted his newborn twins citizenship and re-entry into Israel. They return home this Friday.

Goldberg’s friend Yonathan Gher, who also had a child born with an Indian surrogate, tells Times Of India “that the purpose of the bureaucracy was to deter future gay couples from becoming parents through surrogacy.” Surrogacy law expert Amit Karkhane adds, “Goldberg was a victim of wrong choice of courts. His case happened to go to a conservative judge but it had to be solved sooner or later.”

Sadly, it doesn’t seem as if Goldberg’s travail has created any lasting change in the system. And there’s still no word about the three other gay dads who share a similar fate.

      I love stories, where in the end the homophobes lose anywhere. Makes me feel that there is hope even with all the hurdles they are putting up in front of DADT and ENDA over here.

      Congrats to the new dad…

      I do have a question howvever… how did the court prove he wasnt a pedophile? multiple choice questionaire? Lie detector test?

      This has to be one of the most stupid things I’ve ever heard.. I hope the original judge got raked over the coals…

      Today’s trend of renting poor women’s bellys to make more children on an already over populated world is wrong…regardless of your orientation…..

      @Darren: The court should have to PROVE someone is guilty! Not the other way around! That way “conservative” butt heads are discouraged from using their false religion to persecute someone like this Jew court did.

      Religion has no place in the courts and these Jew judges need to be stoned.

      Well the practice seems so weird to have those kids come out of an Indian woman. I just hope she was well compensated and her own daughters won’t feel the need to rent their wombs.

      You do realize that that “Jew Court” is the same court that recognizes same sex marriages performed elsewhere as legal, recognizes gay common law marriages, and allows gays to adopt. So you might want to check your bigotry.
