Biden wrong that gay couples should have equal rights

Wow, this issue was SO CLOSE to being discussed last night!! Biden again said he and Obama believe that a same-sex couple should have ALL of the rights of a heterosexual couple. Leaving aside how he squares that with being opposed to same-sex marriage when it is so clearly unconstitutional irrational animus to have a separate name for the same rights, let’s look at what that means in terms of reproductive rights. Either he is saying that a same-sex couple should certainly have the right to attempt to conceive children together using their own genes, or he is saying that a married man and woman do NOT have the right to attempt to conceive a child using their own genes. Either of these outcomes would be dire, ushering in a new age of coercive eugenics, and the worst part is, we’ll probably end up with BOTH outcomes unless we make a distinction between the rights of same-sex and both sex couples to attempt to conceive children together. Biden and Obama would probably lead us to not only allowing unsafe and expensive genetic engineering of designer children and same-sex conception, but also to a world where people with genetic anomolies or deficiencies would not be allowed to use their own genes to attempt to procreate with their spouse.

Biden and Obama are dangerously wrong that same-sex couples should have all the rights that a man and a woman have.  Preserve marriage’s conception rights and stop the Brave New World!

About John Howard

  • Check out this exchange on BlueMassGroup that somehow evaded the censors there.  It’s a concise summary of a typical argument.

  • usually that is taken to be an opportunity to win undecided voters, it is called an advantage.  This is something that people just might care about, don’t you think?

    Look, I’m fine with Obama winning, he might still embrace the Compromise when it comes time for him to try to repeal DOMA.  The only way he’ll be able to do that is if he comes up with some protections of marriage, recognizing Civil Unions that are “marriage in all but name” won’t cut it in the Congress or in most states, and they’re unconstitutional, to boot.  And even the most liberal Supreme Court justice he can find is going to agree that conceiving together is a right of marriage and that there is no right to create people using modified genes.  So even though the Dems seem beholden to biotech and same-sex rights, it’s still up in the air which side is more likely to stop genetic engineering of people and preserve marriage rights.

    I’m only wondering why RedMassGroup is intent on ignoring such a major issue that could show how naive and dangerous and scary his policies and goals are.  If he truly thinks that gay couples should have a right to use genetic engineering to conceive together, that’s gonna affect lots of undecided voters.
