  A young lady sees the possibility of becoming a single parent as a major advantage of reproductive technology. She argues that homosexual parents are entitled to the same treatment from a physician as heterosexual ones.
Is lesbian mothering any deferent than heterosexual mothering?
Would the child of lesbian mothers fall victim to negative psychosexual developmental influences?
   Should lesbian women be allowed to reproduce by artificial insemination? Please argue your point
Can two women be effective parents, it take both sexes to nurture a child and give them both sides of what as a male and female we want to see as their parent

The argument you have provided suggests that a male and a female bring different things to parenting.  I will argue that this is not especially true at all.  Both bring likely the same set of morals, the same ability to educate a child, the same love for their child, and the same beliefs.  

Although one might argue that a child cannot learn its place in a male-female world without both male and female parents, such a claim is illogical.  It is a very bad idea to teach a child that its gender mandates its role in society.  In a same-sex couple, a child may be less bound by the limitations of gender.

You say that it takes both sexes to bring what they want as a male and a female, but I argue that both sexes want exactly the same thing.  If they do not, what exactly is different about what those parents want, and why do you think that it is a good thing for a child to be subjected to those differences?

"it takes both sexes to nurture a child" - so, we should outlaw single-parenting then? People must remember that children receive influences in their lives from more than one source (that being their parents).

"Should lesbian women be allowed to reproduce by artificial insemination?"

well, i see this as no different to a single woman reproducing through artificial insemination. Both women are exercising their right to reproduce, as women. And, i guess the child of the lesbian might even have TWO mothers - i'd say that's even better than only one!
