Teach science in science class.
I'm glad that unlike 40% of people in America you understand that evolution is science and creationism and intelligent design are not.
The Christian sacrament of marriage is what most people really want to, I guess preserve. Beyond that, legal civil unions or similar, that's whoever's involved's business.
The laws on marriage NEVER mention that it's a "christian sacrament" otherwise muslims and jews would not be allowed to get married, so they can't actually preserve that anyway.
They can still stop people getting married in churches, as churches can decide who they want to marry.
The state can marry people and make people a married couple, if gays got married that way it would in no way infringe on your right to have the christian sacrament.
While it would give them the right to call themselves a married couple.
The only reason why people go "civil unions are ok!" is because they don't want gay people to have a word next to their names "married" and it means nothing as marriage has nothing to do with religion.
If it did, I couldn't get married either.
A fetus is an infant and undeveloped human being, it is living, and were there no interference in its growth and developement it would, well, grow and develope. That's why I believe it deserves rights.
Hence why I didn't mention it, because people difer on that and therefore whether there is any infringement on rights.
If we had a set test for humanity and a foetus didn't match up to it, then the rights argument would apply, the same if we could test for humanity and found that it definitely was a human life.
