Video: One man, one woman—one state-mandated womb fertilization?

by Jeremy Hooper

The Iona Institute is basically the National Organization for Marriage of Ireland. Like NOM, the organization is run by conservative Catholics. Also like NOM, the organizational arguments against civil marriage equality revolve around the wholly non-required element of procreation:

It is the height of arrogance to suggest that your personally-held and faithfully-convicted view on marriage is the compelling reason for its limitation in civil law, even though the thing you cite is not at all required of any couple who has ever married. People get married for all kinds of reasons. A couple who wishes to enter into a civil marriage must only meet the criteria that is actually demanded by that government contract. Reproduction is not a criterion.

If conservative Catholics worldwide want to lobby their respective governments to change civil marriage recognition in their respective countries so that loin-sprung children are demanded rather than optional, then that needs to be their cause. Until they change their focus to this new cause, videos like this one have untenability built right in.
