Los Angeles, March 19 (IANS) Singer Madonna has spoken out in support of singer Elton John and against leading fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who are in the news for condemning in-vitro fertilisation and saying same-sex couples should not raise children.
The 56-year-old took to photo-sharing platform Instagram on March 18 to post a Dolce and Gabbana 2010 campaign image which showed her and a baby sitting atop her, reports aceshowbiz.com
The “Papa don’t preach” hitmaker wrote alongside the black-and-white photograph: “All babies contain a soul however they come to this earth and their families. There is nothing synthetic about a soul.
“So how can we dismiss IVF and surrogacy? Every soul comes to us to teach us a lesson. God has his hand in everything even technology! We are arrogant to think Man does anything on his own. As above so below! Think before you speak. #livingforlove.”
In an interview to a magazine, Dolce and Gabbana have stated that babies born via in-vitro fertilisation were ‘chemical children’ and ‘synthetic’. Singer Elton John, who has two children via IVF with husband David Furnish, reacted strongly to the comments.
