Gay people should have an interest in abortion issues. Gay proponents claim that being gay is genetic, sooner or later some scientist is going to "prove" the gene exists. There lies the trap. What is going to prevent parents aborting fetuses after a genetic screening showing it may be "gay"?? Aborting fetuses because it is "gay" will not sit well with the gay community. In the long run the gay community and the abortion community is going to clash on this issue. It may not happen if both communities come together and write Politically Correct abortion laws - abortion allowed for all cases except "gay" fetuses. Conservatives will have a field day with that one.

A simply brilliant point, Fee. If the pro-abortion mentality continues (when a baby is, in any way, less than perfect, abort it) then parents will readily abort their gay unborn babies, should they detect this gay gene in a prenatal test. It may very well turn out to be that, in the future, gays may owe their continued existence soley to the refusal of pro-life parents to abort them.

That's an interesting point, one I hadn't considered. Of course, there will never really be such proof, because such a claim is false, just like the claim that genes determine who becomes a criminal or not. However, from the standpoint of the homosexual, and their belief system reguarding genetics, I can see why they would be interested in the pro-life movement for that very reason. I agree.
Ahhh... but not so fast!!! Liberals will abort all children who are NOT gay. They will have to do the politically correct thing and kill the normal babies.
Also, did you know that there is a genetic link between crime and race? Does this excuse someone of his/her crimes? People are capable of making their own decisions whether they are "genetically predisposed" to doing something or not.
