Lawyer: Same-Sex Couples Have “Right to Reproduce”

Homosexual couples might have a right to reproduce about as much as they have a right to grow wings and fly to the moon. Someone needs to inform this attorney that homosexual couples, despite their presumed “rights,” cannot reproduce. They don’t have the ability. Saying that they do makes no rational, scientific or biological sense. I wonder why this lawyer hates science so much. From CNS News:

The attorney who argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2003 in favor of striking down the sodomy law in the state of Texas said on Friday that homosexuals have “a perfect right to reproduce.”

“Same-sex couples have a perfect right to reproduce – whether they’re married or not – and are, in fact, doing that,” Paul Smith, attorney and partner at Jenner & Block, said at an American Constitution Society (ACS) event to discuss the high court’s hearing oral arguments on Tuesday on same-sex marriage in the Obergefell v. Hodges case.

According to the Supreme Court’s preview of the case, the justices will be considering two questions in the case: Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex, and does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out of state?

At the ACS event, the issue of whether or not homosexuals should be parents was discussed, including remarks by Smith.

“The other piece of this – going back to the children, the child welfare stuff that gets discussed  — is the notion that children are better off with a mom and a dad, which a lot of people in this country still believe – it doesn’t happen to be supported by the social science evidence,” Smith said, citing an amici brief his firm crafted for the case with the American Psychological Association.

“The more fundamental problem with that argument is that the kids are there anyway,” Smith said. “Same-sex couples have a perfect right to reproduce whether they’re married or not and are in fact doing that.

“And so even you thought they’re not ideal parents – and there’s no evidence of that – but even if you thought that, if you as a state believe that married parents are better than unmarried parents you still don’t haven’t an argument for why you shouldn’t let them get married,” he said.

“It just doesn’t make any sense,” Smith said.

All homosexual couples can do is adopt or use surrogate mothers. They can’t reproduce by themselves. I’m sure that makes them angry. How unfair it is that they’re not biologically allowed to reproduce. Doesn’t Science care about equality and reproductive rights? Evidently not.
