    Only if one completely disregards the health consequences of the
    behavior. Something can be natural in the sense that it is present from
    birth and unnatural at the same time, in the sense that it is contrary to
    the unblemished nature of a human being. Natural law arguments generally
    proceed from the unblemished nature of the creature, not from the
    existence of defective creatures in a fallen world.
