  •  I really wondered whether Cooper understands (0+ / 0-)

    the most basic workings of reproduction and the female reproductive tract. It sounded to me like he thinks that over-55 couples can pop out babies without breaking a sweat. I guess he's never heard of menopause.

    •  He is NOT saying (0+ / 0-)

      women over 55 can have babies. He is saying that older men who marry those women will, by virtue of the marriage, be faithful. And thus not knock up younger women. Which will promote an allegedly legitimate state interest in making sure babies are not parented by old men with young women, or unmarried couples, or some such.

      His point makes little sense but let's not misrepresent what it is.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
