Preposterous Gay Marriage Theory Filed With Supreme Court: 900,000 Could Be ‘Murdered’


Gene Schaerr, conservative lawyer and loser of Utah’s battle against same-sex marriage, refuses to give up the fight. While nobody seems to care what Schaerr thinks, he insists on trying to find new ways to perpetrate the lie that gay marriage will somehow destroy our society.

His latest charade comes with the help of “100 scholars of marriage,” who all agree got paid to say that gay marriage will in fact cause an a generation to lose nearly a million people before they’re ever born.

Schaerr filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court and held a symposium with the joke that is the Heritage Foundation stating that legal same-sex marriage will reduce the number of “traditional” marriages. . . somehow.  Since unmarried women are more likely to choose to have abortions, and there will be more unmarried women, abortions in America will skyrocket at a staggering rate:

[N]early 900,000 more children of the next generation would be aborted as a result of their mothers never marrying. This is equal to the entire population of the cities of Sacramento and Atlanta combined.

Oh my. How did Schaerr and what he considers good solid science come to this conclusion? It’s simple really. Schaerr said in a post to the Heritage Foundation’s website:

On the surface, abortion and same-sex marriage may seem unrelated, [but] the two are closely linked in a short and simple causal chain.

When asked by Dana Milbank of the Washington Post just how he intends to prove this cause and effect, Schaerr said:

It is still too new to do a rigorous causation analysis using statistical methods.

For the layperson, that translates to “I have no evidence, science doesn’t matter anyway, I’m playing on the emotions of people and hoping some of the crap I throw at the wall will stick.”

The Heritage Foundation’s Ryan Anderson joined in the fun, appearing with Schaerr Monday to say:

Every nation and every state that have redefined marriage have seen their marriage rates decline by at least 5 percent after that redefinition, even as the marriage rates in the rest of the states remain stable.

Like most conservative statistics, this isn’t just a cherry-picked number to support an argument, it’s a complete load of crap. As Milbank points out:

The national marriage rate declined to 6.8 per 1,000 in 2012, from 8.0 in 2002, before Massachusetts became the first state to legalize gay marriage. The Massachusetts rate dropped from 5.9 in 2002 to 5.5 in 2011, while Connecticut went from 5.7 to 5.5 and Vermont went from 8.6 to 8.3. But Texas and Utah, free of same-sex marriage, dropped from 8.4 to 7.1, and from 10.4 to 8.6, respectively.

Sorry, counselor.  Your argument is invalid.

    Are these idiots saying that gay men are marrying pregnant women?

    • Donald Jaramillo says:

      No, they are saying that gay men will marry other men rather than support the girlfriends they got pregnant.

      • pennyjane says:

        are you saying they are insane? i agree.

        • Donald Jaramillo says:

          The interpretation above of their so-called argument might not be completely accurate. They actually seem to be saying that heterosexual men will be less likely to stay with a pregnant girlfriend because same-sex marriage somehow reduces the pressure to “do the right thing.” The brief holds, using “settled theoretical evidence,” that men are more resistant to marriage and must be compelled to it by social pressures. Somehow, two men marrying will undermine that pressure upon heterosexual men and he is more likely to abandon his pregnant girlfriend.

          Still twisted, but perhaps not quite as WTF twisted as previously thought.

      • Jim McFarland says:

        What makes them think that gay men are impregnating women?

  • pennyjane says:

    never underestimate the utter insanity of bigotry. these people actually believe this madness…..their bigotry blinds them to anything but hate and fear. it’s sad, it really is….to think of how many millions of lives are lost to bigotry…over and over again, the greatest threat to mankind is our bigotry….either we will conquer it or it will eventually kill us all.

    So gay people not feeling forced to marry straight people to have a family has reduced divorce rates. Well, how about that…
