Morrissey: Is it nothing to you?Written by Tom Morrissey | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Stuck in a terrible hell, he will never be able to make basic decisions for himself. Cultural oppression deems him less than human. He will never be able to live life fully and freely. A backwards culture wants to interfere with his life, making decisions that affect him directly.
Simple rights don’t belong entirely to him. He will never be able to express his love for another completely. He will never be able to express any love at all, whether his love is socially acceptable or culturally taboo.
Gay Americans are treated as second-class citizens. As subpar human beings. As quasi-animals. Gay Americans are not treated as simple human beings because they are denied a basic foundational right – the right to life.
Forget about marriage. Gay Americans will never be able to make the decision for better or worse because their lives are allowed by law to be cut short.
Perhaps it is a sick blessing in disguise to gay Americans to be denied the hellish, nightmarish union that plagues straightss, but one issue at a time needs to be addressed. When there is no right to life, there is no need to worry about the aborted, gay fetus being denied the right to express true love in a ceremony like every other straight can.
It is ironic that, in some instances, the same people who feel that gays are treated as inferior because government-sanctioned gay marriage does not exist for nonstraights also feel that it is acceptable to abort a gay American –- far before that person reaches the age to consent to marriage.
1.7 percent of the American population is gay, so, by the numbers, almost two of every 100 babies that are aborted will never have the chance to enter into gay matrimony with the love of his or her life.
In 2009, the last reported year in the United States, 784,507 babies were aborted, according to the Center for Disease Control. Because their lives were ended that year, 13,336 gay Americans will never have to worry about being denied the right to marriage.
But who are we kidding? Does it matter that these 13,000 will never be able to add to the divorce rate one day? Who cares that these people will never be able to participate in the high unemployment rate? Is it a big deal that these people will never have other fundamental rights trampled?
Is it nothing to society that the right that is the foundation and cornerstone of every single right is glanced over with a blind eye? Is it nothing to you that people have the gall to fight for the “right” to deny this basic right to others? The most innocent among us are put away in cold-blooded murder daily. Among these innocents, some are, by the percentages, gay.
The real gay persecution is in the womb, as scientists begin to declare that life starts at conception, and some pro-abortion feminists agree but want to continue with the gruesome practice. Among these fetuses being aborted, gays are being disposed of like it is nothing.
How can a person, with a straight face – no pun intended — argue for equal treatment and gay rights when gays don’t have the simple chance to live a life of disappointment filled with government sanctioned persecution?
At least oppression outside of the womb could be met with the ability to fight back.
