In many states, sodomy laws are still on the books though often unenforceable as a landmark Supreme court ruling in 2003 ruled state sodomy laws unconstitutional. Many people aren’t even aware they exist now that homosexuality appears to be the norm that always was. Celebrities and politicians, (<–link not for young audiences) tell us we’re crazy for making such a big deal over the ever growing reach of the homosexual populous. The New York Times suggests the traditional family isn’t real outside of a Norman Rockwell painting.

Sloan, Lahl: Inconvenient truths about commercial surrogacy

The Minnesota Senate and House are currently considering two separate bills to legalize commercial surrogacy in the state (S.F. 2627 and H.F. 291). This is occurring despite that similar legislation was defeated just last year and a bill similar to what has been proposed in the Senate was vetoed in 2008. One would think that since Minnesota has twice rejected the proposal of legalizing baby-selling … Continue reading Sloan, Lahl: Inconvenient truths about commercial surrogacy
