He makes a very week argument though, and I feel he would fail at convincing most anyone. His thoughts are well organized, but he fails to r...

Ethics and Law essays / Same Sex Marrigaes: I Do Or Don't
Same-Sex Marriages: "I Do or Don't?" There are issues brewing all the time that catch somebody's eye at one time or another. Issues such as abortion, single-parent families, the homeless, AIDS, politics, euthanasia, and same- sex marriages.
