Illinois' leading purveyor of gay marriage myths now pushing offensive infertility claims

by Jeremy Hooper

As part of a public exchange about the historic movement on marriage equality in his state, Illinois Family Institute head David Smith made this outlandish claim about why infertility befalls some straight couples:

In truth, infertility can stem from endometriosis, elevated prolactin, cystic fibrosis, overexposure to environmental factors, polycystic ovary syndrome, uterine fibroids, early menopause, scarred tissue in the pelvic region, thyroid problems, cancer, testicular blockage, sickle cell disease, abnormal sperm production, kidney disease, diabetes, or any number of causes. But in David Smith's world? Straight couples who can't reproduce were, for the most part, just too slutty before they married.

David made this "point" (as it were) in response to a pro-equality person's mention of the fact that infertile couples are still able to marry. Fortunately for us, if this top equality foe continues to make "points" like this one (like at the big lobby day he is heading up next week in Springfield), then he will only help us increase the number of couples who have that freedom, procreative desires or not.
