The News Minute | March 19, 2015 | 6.25 pm IST 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. TweetFollow @thenewsminute
