Then shouldn't we allow a man who is already married marry his sister? Especailly when, around 70% of the children are born perfectly healthy?
"Just last year, a study in Nature found that rates of autism and schizophrenia rise sharply in the babies of older dads, with the risk doubling for every 16.5 years of paternal age. Another study, also in Nature, found something similar for autism, beginning when a man is just 35—the same ostensible trouble-age as for moms."

Risk above general population:
31.4% for death and severe defect (4 data sets)
I am for EQUALITY and LOVE. aren't you?
How is that not bigoted?
1. Because then go ahead and let BOTH examples marry. Because it they "might" not have kids.
2. What are you going to do force them to have abortions even if they marry as a punishment for having kids? Or put them in prison for having kids? These are HARDLY equal rights for everyone.
Tell me how this is equal rights, and treating them like the rest of us?
Please stop with this argument. Its just awful.

90% would still be terrible. And we know that birth defects aren't 1 in 10 people looking over the population, or even close to that0
