Two points are commonly brought up in favor of this motion: first, that it ruins the sanctity of heterosexual marriage; and second, that it is bad for children. Addressing the first point, a marriage is a personal and private relationship that signifies the dedication of two people to each other. One couple getting married should not affect the meaning of your marriage if it is sound and personally meaningful. For the second point, there are numerous studies that show that children raised by same sex couples have equal outcomes as children raised by straight couples when it comes to school advancement. The only potentially detrimental side effect is bullying, which is goaded by bills such as this and by families that teach their children that those raised by same sex couples are different. Putting facts and clear thinking to these two points boils the question down to the value of human life: do you believe all people should have equal access to a happy and fulfilling life? If yes, then there is no way you can support this motion in good conscience.
