Re "Judge weighs arguments on Utah's same-sex-marriage ban," Tribune, Dec. 5:
Defenders of the Utah state constitution's ban on same-sex marriage seem hung up on the fact that a gay couple can't procreate. Whatever.
The question of parenting is just as important. What about all those Utah children currently being raised by gay couples? And those already-married gay couples with families who moved from a marriage equality state? Denying them the stability of a legal family is doing real harm.
