Slippery Slope: Polyamory Gets Support From Harvard Law

Aug 11, 2021 by

By Tré Goins-Phillips, Faithwire: In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage, Chief Justice John Roberts — who dissented — argued the ruling would open the door to legalizing plural marriage. At the time, outlets like Slate stated emphatically the judge was “wrong.” But as it turns out, Roberts’ warning now seems pretty prescient. Roberts argued in his 2015 dissent that, “although the majority randomly inserts the adjective ‘two’ in various places, it offers...

Canadian throuples and the future of parenting

Apr 28, 2021 by

by Mary Harrington, UnHerd: Progressive campaigning, by definition, seeks to bring into being a desired world that — we’re told — would be an improvement over the existing cruel and ugly one. Recently, such campaigning has taken a radical new turn: the pursuit of legal reforms designed to enable everyone to bring into being the particular version of the world they wish to inhabit — often regardless of the degree to which that conflicts with others’ versions of reality. Canada is the forefront...

New York Times pushes ‘poly-parent’ children created using next-generation IVF

Aug 19, 2020 by

By Martin Bürger, LifeSite: The New York Times is pushing what essentially amounts to the next level of in vitro fertilization (IVF) in a lengthy op-ed released last week. Technology currently in development could enable any human being, independent of their sex, “to manufacture an egg or sperm cell from a tiny sliver of their own skin” and thus create a new baby. In response to the op-ed, several ethicists and medical doctors have come out against this practice in exclusive statements to...

Massachusetts Town Legalizes Polyamory Using Same Arguments For Gay Marriage

Jul 21, 2020 by

By Katy Faust and Stacy Manning, The Federalist: The Massachusetts town of Somerville has become the first in the nation to legalize polyamorous relationships. It’s evidence of the slippery slope social conservatives warned would follow legalizing gay marriage. Polygamy was the obvious evolution of redefining marriage. After all, every argument supporting gay marriage—“Love is love,” “we deserve equal protection under the law,” and “we’re not harming anybody”—also supports group marriage....
