Comments:I appreciate the opportunity to share my comment in this important matter. Protecting people is a most laudable endeavour but it is crucial that some people are not damaged in order to protect another group of people. That is not protection to the group damaged and they must have equal rights with the ones you say you want to protect. Protection must be for all and so fairness has to be at the heart of all laws that puport to protect. If anyone is damaged in a law designed to protect, all meaning of the law is lost. This has been the failure of law in many instances of good intent. Let us not fall into this folly at this time, by ensuring that "protection" of one group does not hurt or disadvantage another group. For if that happens "protection" is not for all and fairness is denied. Both protection and fairness lose their meaning "by law" when this happens.
