This idea may sound crazy at first, but man what a sea change for this simple, conservative concept to be coming out of a REPUBLICAN legislator. Of course, I’d be more impressed if it were Augusta, Georgia rather than Augusta, Maine. But I like where the inspiration came from, too.
Maine House Bill Would Protect Fetuses Carrying the “Gay Gene” – Magic City Morning Star (hat tip – GayOrbit)
Duprey received the idea for this bill when listening to the Rush Limbaugh radio show. ?I heard Rush saying that the day the ?gay gene? is determined to be real, that overnight gays would become pro-life,? Duprey said.
?Most people would agree that to kill someone just because that person might be gay would constitute a hate crime,? said Duprey. ?I have heard from women who told me that if they found out that they were carrying a child with the gay gene, then they would abort. I think this is wrong. Those unborn children should be protected.?
I wish I’d have heard this story before I went on McMullen’s show yesterday!
