    Default Denise Drysdale's comment on "The Circle" ...just plain wrong!

    I was just watching "The Circle" on channel 10 and they were discussing sperm donors and IVF ......AND Denise Drysdale made a comment saying " IF god wanted you to have a child he would give you one"


    This really made me mad

    I agree it was horrible and I actually watched that part and wondered how long it would be till it is a topic on here, I can't believe she said that I usually like her

    Glad though that Georgie tried to point out how she was so wrong, I think none of the other three knew what to say.

    And good on you Helen for sending an email hopefully she does an on air apology to everyone who has been down that difficult path of idiotic comments like that

    So wrong! What a stupid ideology!

    I find alot of what is said on that show is just plain offensive sometimes. Its a terrible show TBH, Im surprised it has survived this long.

    Ive actually never watched the show b4.

    I think a comment like that is easy said when you havent had problems conceiving your children

    Im sure her opinion would be different if she was faced with fertility problems.

    I saw it too... It kind of looked like it just slipped out... And I couldn't help but wonder how Many times SHE had been told that when she was little, TTC iykwim.... She looked really ashamed and the others called her on it quickly. It was a horrible thing to say though.

    Yes, God created everything perfect and the devil created science and we should go back and live in caves
    I wonder if he she feels the same way when she goes to the dr. or if she'd ever have an operation for anything. Having such an extreme view on what natural is and this is how God made your body.
    Next she'll be saying to chemo patients, if God wanted you to be cancer free, he would take it away himself.... or is it only limited to one science?????
