Because you seem to think that no matter how much suffering a countries government is causing to it's people, that we should just stay out of their way.
Would you feel the same about a country that was persecuting and stoning heterosexuals? Or does that hit home too much?
Anything goes, the same for heterosexuals although that would never happen because it's how humans are here today. But whatever the government says goes and we should obide by the rules
You just invoked "Legal Positivism". According to that worldview Adolf Hitler was a superhero and Oscar Schindler was a scumbag. I assume you are atheist/agnostic so reasoning with you may work. You must acknowledge that you are allowing the government to occupy the place that God occupies in the religious mind, namely, being the slavemaster.

If governments want to oppress a minority such as non-heterosexual people, then it is a malevolent government. You can easily get behind it and condemn their crimes. And please notice the word I just used. "Crime". Governments can also commit crimes. When you think about it, most of the aberrations perpetrated by humans unto others where planned, executed and artificially "legitimized" by governments.

Governments are simply groups of people. People are not perfect on their own and getting together in an institution called "The State" doesn't magically summon a moral perfection chip onto their brains.
