New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently wrote a letter to the state’s medical insurers saying that they will now be required to provide coverage for reproductive infertility to single persons and same-sex couples.
The move was celebrated by Leftists and progressives as a win for the decoupling of reproduction and the traditional family.
Bella DePaulo, an advocate cited by the New York Magazine, said the change is part “of the long unraveling of the components that all used to be tied up in the one package of marriage: sex, having children, living together.”
Now note carefully. Here she is celebrating the taking apart of what had previously throughout human history, unquestionably, belonged together.
Those things are now unraveling, she says, and that’s progress. She said, “the whole bundle is coming undone.”
And at this point, even though we lament what she celebrates, we have to acknowledge, she is exactly right.
