At some point over the past few days, you might have noticed a corner of the Internet rolling its eyes at a piece published in The Daily Signal, the news site owned by the conservative Heritage Foundation. It was penned by Gene Schaerr, the lawyer who filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court this month arguing that gay dudes marrying each other in America will lead to 900,000 abortions over the next three decades.
Here’s an excerpt of the piece—which includes charts and numbers!—for you to chew over. It is appropriately titled, “Forcing States to Recognize Gay Marriage Could Increase Number of Abortions”:
A reduction in the opposite-sex marriage rate means an increase in the percentage of women who are unmarried and who, according to all available data, have much higher abortion rates than married women. And based on past experience, institutionalizing same-sex marriage poses an enormous risk of reduced opposite-sex marriage rates.
Whoa, if true.
It’s sad to say that certain individuals actually peddle this stuff. But let’s say, for the sake of argument, that the anti-gay side is absolutely on the money on this one. If that is the case, then a sharp uptick in abortions is just one of many shocking things that legalizing gay marriage is going to “lead to.”
Here’s a list. People have been sounding the alarm for years now.
- The “criminalization of Christianity.”
- Another Civil War.
- More incest.
- Ruined children.
Welcome to Obama’s America, kids. Hope you’re enjoying your atheist dog-marriage with a side of fascism.
