Marriage and Abortion Share a Slippery Slope. Apparently.

Quote of the day comes form Steve King, a Republican Congressman from the Great State of Iowa:

If we don't save marriage, we can't remain pro-life.

"Saving" marriage obviously means objecting to gay-marriage. But what does this have to do with abortion? Can someone please explain to me what on earth King means? Seriously, I have no idea.

I'm going to guess that the pro-gay marriage, pro-life segment of the population is pretty small but that it may be larger than folk imagine. Anyway, that's a different question. I'd really be interested in an explanation of the so-called argument King is making here.
