Just when you Thought no one Cared

So last week it was announced that Ricky Martin not only had twins but that they had been born for several weeks when word was finally released and that he used a surrogate mother to have them. In the statement, it said that he was putting his music career on hold to stay at home and focus on his new family. Well that may not happen as soon as Martin would like as his decision has upset many people and at least two have come out publicly and made a statement about how awful they think it is. From Celebrity Baby Scoop,

“The news of Ricky Martin becoming a father to twin boys hasn’t been well received by everyone. One leading Latino Catholic cardinal has slammed Ricky for acting without dignity. The Puerto Rican singer recently fathered twin boys, via a surrogate mother, who is rumored to be a cousin of Ricky’s. The Catholic cardinal of Honduras, Oscar Andres Rodriguez, accuses the singer of going against human dignity,

“What Martin did diminishes the dignity of a human being. You can’t just buy or rent life. It’s even worse when someone famous and in the public eye is doing it.”

Rodriguez isn’t alone. Mexican talk show host Esteban Arce has also spoken out against Ricky’s choice to be a single father,

“I don’t think it’s right to deny children of maternal figures, just because you have a big ego.”

I’m not exactly sure why it’s okay to slander someone’s dignity as a human being or how anyone figures that Ricky Martin, or anyone else who decides to have a child via a surrogate, is doing it to boost their ego. Why are Catholic authorities allowed to denounce people when they are ‘in the public eye’ but celebrities aren’t allowed to make choices that affect no one but their own lives?
