Wolfson’s Weakest Argument: “Every reputable national child-welfare and public health professional association in the country has come out in support of the freedom to marry.”

Wolfson clearly overgeneralizes in this claim. He offers just one example, but claims that every organization shares the belief of his one source. He also uses the word reputable, which is a subjective word. Without clearly defining the meaning of reputable, it is not evident to the audience what he means.  In further research, many organizations were found to support Wolfson’s claim, but he only listed one, which we recognize as a violation of Weston’s seventh and eleventh rules (Weston, 10; 16) (See figure 4)
