Annotation #4

Title: Procreation Center of Gay Marriage Debate

This article questions the argument that procreation is what marriage is about. It points out that with newer technologies, artificial insemination can be used. It also points out that no matter what, gay people will not make more children if they don't want to. Why would lack of gay marriage promote procreation when it is not adding to the amount of children? It also shows Minnesota's point of view. According to Minnesota, procreating and rearing a child in a family is what marriage is about. It however is denying couples the rights to children in many cases... which makes one wonder how, if they can’t control whether they have children or not, it can be banned. In all the states that the question of if gay marriage should be allowed was on the ballot, it was banned.
