Our former Vice President Dick Cheney approves of incestuous marriages. It's true
that America's most hated figure embraces this progressive form of marriage by using
the following Aristotelian logic, "With the respect to the question of relationships,
my general view is freedom means freedom for everyone.... People ought to be free
to enter into any kind of relationship they want to."
Does it not seem cruel to incarcerate two people in love who want to make a life
together simply because you think their genes may produce inferior children? Under
this reasoning, people with genetically heritable disease (huntingtons, cystic fibrosis,
tay-sachs, sickle-cell anemia) must also be screened and prevented from marrying.
Fear of a possibly unhealthy child doesn't prevent people with genetic diseases
from entering into romance; thus, it is not a legitimate reason to prevent people
from committing incest.
Even if it were a legitimate interest, then society should only prohibit incestuous
couples from procreating rather than forbidding them to be together. The fact that
two people are in a romantic incestuous relationship does not itself pose any harm
