“There is no natural way to have children [when] from the outset they do not have a mother. This is unnatural, unethical, inhuman and un-Jewish…There is no equality between the sexes. There are men, there are women, there is the normative Jewish family, human, ethical, natural. The man has his role, his sexuality. The women has her role, her sexuality.” The speaker is Col. (ret.) Moti Yogev, Knesset Member for the religious Zionist party Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home), led by Naftali Bennett. Yogev, 62, was speaking at a Knesset committee meeting debating a proposed Surrogacy Law. Yogev served with great distinction in combat roles in the IDF for 25 years. His views are supported by his own party, the governing Likud party, the ultra-Orthodox Sefardi party Shas and the ultra-Orthodox United Judaism party.
