In upholding the Defense of Marriage Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton, Taylor said that even though the law "has a disproportionate effect on homosexual individuals," the government's desire to promote procreation is a valid reason for infringing on the rights of gay couples.

Infringing on their rights? The "right" never existed in the first place. This is like saying the state infringes on the right of pedophiles to engage in sex with infants.
