I was not advocating that a single mother must abort their fetus. But why couldn't the government be able to say that a single mother must wed the child's father? Afterall, YOU said that the government should be used to ensure that children have both their mother AND their father. And once married, the government should then have as its mission to outlaw the child's parents from divorcing.<quoted text>
Since we can not force people to abort their babies (thank GOD) we can not regulate their ability to reproduce either.....you should know that...that was a silly statement.
By supporting traditional marriage, our government would be saying that both mothers and fathers are too important to legislate away...
If you are not willing to have the government get into lives of straight couples to ensure your ideal vision of family, why insist that the government be used to maintain your ideal against same-sex families.
