Maine Pediatricians Urge Voters to Reject Question 1 - Fundy heads go boom
Maine Pediatricians Urge Voters to Reject Question 1

(Portland, Maine) Citing child welfare and their commitment to support what is best for children, physicians from the Maine Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) today announced their support for the NO on 1/Protect Maine Equality campaign.

Children who are raised by legally married parents benefit from the legal status granted to their parents. What is good for parents and families is good for children, said Dr. Jonathan Fanburg, president of the Maine Chapter of the AAP. The Maine Chapter of AAP is opposed to the referendum vote that challenges the marriage equality law.

The Maine Chapters statement reads, in part:

As physicians who care for children and their families, we are committed to supporting what is best for children. And there is no question that when their parents can marry, children are more protected legally and socially.

4. This won't make heads go boom.
This won't make fundy heads go boom. They don't think gay people should be raising children at all, married or not.

8. Having pediatricians who say it's OK to have gay couples with families...
Will make their head explode because they don't want it.

When people of authority go against their wishes heads go boom.

9. Great, now we need to talk about this in TV ads
Any chance we have to paint gay marriage as pro 'family values' is a good thing, it undercuts the fundies argument that gay marriage would hurt families.
