"This is not a case where a father has violated his daughter and used his position of authority to take advantage of her powerlessness... However, the offence of incest exists not merely to protect children from sexual abuse. In my view, other relevant factors include the need to prevent the high risk of congenital defects of children born of incestuous relationships and to prevent children, who are brought up in a family unit founded on an incestuous relationship, suffering psychological harm and social stigmatisation. Those factors assume significance in this case."

- it is definitely an OK idea to criminalize unconventional family formations** because of the possibility of social stigma.
