Sunday Mail Opinion; Voice of Scotland.

The case of the two gay men who have become fathers by "renting a womb" will cause widespread unease throughout Scotland.

There are limits to the boundaries of tolerance in every age and to buy a baby from America in this way will test them to breaking point.

Gays of both sexes are trying to push back the frontiers of what society finds acceptable. Increasingly, they demand the right to live just like everyone else with legalised marriages, a joint mortgage... and children.

For a variety of reasons, many children are raised without one of their natural parents. Most people accept that is far from ideal.

But to deliberately exclude one sex from a baby's upbringing from the very start is hardly to put the child's interests first.

We wish Sarah Clare Adam-Zachs a long and happy life. We hope she brings her two dads much joy.

But nothing can convince the majority of people in Scotland that it is right for these men to use money to play God.
