The relationships referred to herein include blood relationships of either: (i) the whole or (ii) half blood without regard to: (i) legitimacy, (ii) relationship of parent and child by adoption, (iii) relationship of stepparent and stepchild, and (iv) relationship of stepgrandparent and stepgrandchild
I do acknowledge that is ambiguously written though. One could potentially read it either way.
But, you initially said that there is "not one state" that is based on risk of defect rather than the moral taboo. That I disagree with. Now you're saying many states' incest laws are based on the moral taboo instead. I'd definitely agree with that. Most states are even. But a few are trying to base it on the risk of birth defect.
as of right now, only SSM is a "constitutional right".
progressives had polygamy banned a long time ago.. and I don't see anyone making a fuss over stopping the government from violating that right.. no special flags, no movement, no polymarriage warriors on the prowl hunting down errant disbelievers..... so it will probably remain banned for the foreseeable future.
... cuz' government knows best how people should live their lives.
Marriage is not mentioned in the Constitution directly. However the 9th Amendment admits that not all Rights are mentioned in the Constitution. Also previous SCOTUS rulings regarding marriage, which are many, all agree that Marriage is a Right.
