Smarten up. Of course procreation inside a legal marriage is a government interest. A big one. Only a fool would believe otherwise.<quoted text>
Dear moron, no one said we should base public policy on daytime television. I was merely pointing out the fallacy of your argument.
Were you not a moron, you might understand that the government does not intervene in cases of out of wedlock birth, nor does it prevent divorce.
Which is to say, if you weren't a moron, you might understand that procreation has no bearing upon legal marriage.
Only an idiot would think the government doesn't intervene in out of wedlock birth. Every state has a child services division, most of the 'clients' are single mothers. Then there's WIC and other federal programs. Kids born to married couples are far less likely to need welfare services.
What good would come of preventing divorce? How would it benefit children?
