Of course it doesn't. Simply being alive does.

Freedom is innate and absolute.

Rights aren't "given", they are guaranteed and protected.

Someone apparently finally read the polling numbers in support of same sex marriage, and realized that their hot button issue was no longer an election winner.

All the same ones you have, including the right to live where you choose, work where you will, shop where you want, and marry someone you love.

It's quite simple, really.
