Altho married gays probably have a better chance of adopting, just like married straight people, so they will likely expand the pool of people looking to adopt and there may be less abortions because of that.
The new argument against gay equality: Same-sex marriage kills - The Washington Post
But comes now Gene Schaerr, unsuccessful lawyer for Utah in that state’s case against same-sex marriages, to file an amicus brief with the Supreme Court on behalf of “100 scholars of marriage.”
To wit: Legalizing same-sex marriage devalues marriage and causes fewer heterosexual couples to marry, which leads to a larger number of unmarried women, who have abortions at higher rates than married women. As a result, Schaerr wrote, “nearly 900,000 more children of the next generation would be aborted as a result of their mothers never marrying. This is equal to the entire population of the cities of Sacramento and Atlanta combined.”
The bold is just hysterical. What a low, sad opinion he has of people that believe in marriage, esp. those that are religious. How weak their faith would have to be.
I guess this is *his ultra conservative' understanding of 'science?'
Marriage proceeds from man's natural urge to provide for his children. You can procreate without marriage, but not well.Why not? Why does it matter if they have sex and you view it cant have a "legitimate sexual act" in your opinion? Why does marriage and your opinion of a "legitimate sexual act" matter? Aterall isnt marriage in its form "unnatural"? I mean I can still have legitimate sex (because based on your opinion its when you can reproduce) when im not married.. What does sex have to do with marriage? And how is marriage natural?
Not everything the state does follows from the first principles of nature.But you said the state derives its authority from natural law. So you need to explain how its natural then...
There is no such thing as natural law and its usage is still a recognition of a higher being or force driving the natural world...which does not exist.
The only natural laws are those of biology, physics, chemistry, geology, etc. And they are driven by nothing but natural forces, not some higher power.
You should really give this attempted argument up, someone calls you out on it everytime.
