On Sunday, thousands of flowers will be delivered, slippers unwrapped and handwritten cards opened in honour of mums.
More phone calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year. Is it any wonder?
There's nothing in the world that can compare to a mother's love. And there's no closer bond than that between a mother and her child.
Research proves it: 'After centuries of observing behavioral changes in new mothers, scientists are only recently beginning to definitively link the way a woman acts with what's happening in her prefrontal cortex, midbrain, parietal lobes, and elsewhere. Gray matter becomes more concentrated. Activity increases in regions that control empathy, anxiety, and social interaction. On the most basic level, these changes, prompted by a flood of hormones during pregnancy and in the postpartum period, help attract a new mother to her baby. In other words, those maternal feelings of overwhelming love, fierce protectiveness, and constant worry begin with reactions in the brain.'
If marriage law changes in Australia, it effectively takes mums out of the picture. Declaring that a family no longer should, ideally, be founded by a dad AND mum, says that, as a society, we believe that no longer do mothers matter. Two dads can replace her with ease and create the same ideal. She is redundant, unnecessary and superfluous.
Science and common sense says otherwise.
No one can emulate the hormonal and physiological changes that take place to create the unique bond between mother and child. To suggest otherwise is to snub your nose at science... and mothers.
So why would we, as a society, want to enshrine in law, marriage between two men, founding a family without the unique contribution of a mother? They can ONLY found a family by removing an infant from his/her mother, with no thought as to how this might effect him/her.
In fact, a study published in Science Daily shows the dramatic impact of separating a newborn baby from her mother...
Dr. John Krystal, Editor of Biological Psychiatry, commented on the study's findings: "This paper highlights the profound impact of maternal separation on the infant. We knew that this was stressful, but the current study suggests that this is major physiologic stressor for the infant."
Bill Shorten has already promised to legalise gay 'marriage' within 100 days in Government if Labor wins the next election.
If that is the case, this could be our last real Mother's Day. Once Genderless Marriage is enshrined in law, it's official - Mothers no longer matter. Their unique contribution to the family unit is no longer upheld as the ideal and Mother's Day is an affront to Genderless Families.
Mothers - don't believe the lie that Genderless Marriage advocates are feeding the media. Two dads can never replace one mum. Your contribution to your family is invaluable and this Mother's Day, we want to thank and honour all mums for what you do.
Happy Mother's Day!
