Republican State Senator Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin doesn’t want gays and lesbians to raise children. So he’s introduced a bill in the Legislature that would force the state Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to classify “nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.”
Yup, all you single moms and LGBT parents would have to turn yourself in to the authorities.
As The New Civil Rights Movement points out, such a measure, even if it passed, would be almost impossible to carry out:
What is supposed to happen to all those children who, tragically, lose a parent to, say, cancer? A car accident? Divorce? Does the State come in the day of the parent’s funeral and rip the young boy or girl from their surviving parent’s loving arms and place them in an orphanage?
Grothman has previously voted against a proposed MLK holiday, any official recognition of Kwanzaa, and the mandatory disinfection of groundwater in public water systems.
At what point to voters become embarrassed to be represented by radical GOP nutbags like Grothman, Indiana’s Bob Morris and Tennessee’s Stacey Campfield?
