boyfriends, only to have the boyfriend endthe relationship anyway. Some of them havelearned from experience that recreationalsex is not as fun as they imagined. Thecoarsening of sexual relationships, the pressure on women to perform sexually, theeasy escape for men from responsibility for their unborn children: some of theMillennials have put two and two together and figured out that the abortion regimeenables all this.Katelyn Sills, President of BerkeleyStudents for Life, attended the 2011 Walk on Saturday. She reports that the pro-lifeinitiative comes from the young peoplethemselves, not from their parents or other authority figures. When high school studentsform a pro-life club, it isn’t to pad their resumes: that particular extra-curricular activity won’t impress most collegeadmissions offices. Students form pro-lifeclubs because they see the injustice of abortion: they identify with the child.It is the interests of children that theAbortion Regime set aside in order toaccommodate the desires of adults. And it isthe interests of children that the redefinitionof marriage is in the process of setting asideas well. Remember the old pro-abortionslogan, “every child a wanted child?” Whocan take that seriously today? “Kids justneed two adults who love them” will cometo sound every bit as hollow.Same-sex civil marriage tacitly but surelyasserts that kids don’t really need mothersand fathers, and that mothers and fathers areinterchangeable. The next generation willgrow up with the consequences of institutionalizing this belief throughoutsociety. Same-sex civil marriage is turningthe drift toward artificial reproductivetechnology for infertile married couples intoa tidal wave of entitlement for anyonemarried or single, straight or gay, of anyage, to manufacture children for any reason.Redefining marriage will come to mean thatthere is no particular reason to insist on two parents. Some in the next generation willhave three or four parents.Advocates of redefining marriage assure usthat all will be well. Children will do fine,whatever the loving adults in their livesdecide to do. IVF children will be so wanted by their legal parents that the lifetimeseparation from their natural parents will nottrouble them. And children of unconventional family structures will havemore adults to love them. Divorce,separation, complex custody quarrels, kidsshuttling between four households with their sleeping bags and backpacks: that’s justanti-equality hysteria and will never happen.As time goes on, it will become moreobvious that “marriage equality” requires us,men, women and children alike, to ignore biology. Some women who have childrenwith female partners will find that sharingthe care of her child with another woman, isnot the same as sharing the care of her childwith the child’s father. Some men who agreeto be sperm donorsas “friends” will findthat they want more of a relationship withtheir own children than they had anticipated.
