Anti-gay activist Robert Oscar Lopez on
Monday claimed that the Thirteenth Amendment's ban on slavery applies
to gay parenting.
Lopez, who is celebrated among social
conservatives due to the fact that he was raised briefly in a
same-sex household and claims he was damaged by the experience, made
his comments during an appearance on Sandy Rios in The Morning.
“I believe every
child has a natural born right to his mother and father and
ultimately those rights were taken away from them because adults made
a decision that the child was not a party to because he didn’t
exist or was too young to decide that,” Lopez
Amendment “says 'slavery shall not exist.' Any kind of arrangement
where you have a legal contract upon another human being is banned.”
mother-father relationship to the child is a natural one that is
structured around obligations to the child, anytime that you turn
that around and you say that adults have a right to a child, really
all of society then becomes put into an ethical problem, because all
of society is redefining what it means to be human, what it means to
be a child, what it means to be a free citizen and what it means to
have freedom. I don't think you can really be free if you're born
with a price on your head,” he added, completely oblivious to the
fact that all children are raised without giving consent.
