Gay Adoption in the U.S.

Studies have shown that Gay couple make just as good, in not better in certain instances, of parents as heterosexual couples do.  Do to the emence planning that has to go on with gay couples who want to have kids, they are usually more well off as far as income goes, also they are ussually of an older age, both overall more prepared for the child then heterosexual couple are when it comes to having a baby.  Studies have also shown the the children or Gay couples are exactly the same as children of straight couples as far as with emotions and cognitive abilities, and in fact some studies show that children of gay couples are better and more socially involves then those of straight couples.

Even with all these studies showing the gay parents are just as loving and good for kids as the traditional straight family, there is still only 4 of the 50 states that will allow a gay couple to adopt a child.  Though many states will allow a gay couple to foster children, with or not they can adopt the child afterward in out of the the question.  Florida is one of the few states that actually have it as a law that Gays cant adopt, due to a law passed it 1977, most states in the U.S. have it set in to the system more or a subtle way.  The rest of the 46 states have discovered a loop whole to not allow gays to adopt, with out having to come right out and say it, this is done by them not allowing married couples to not adopt, however, with them also not allow gays to married, this still keeps a gay couple out of the adoption process.

For those of you wanting to fix this your best way to start is to petition and right to your local and state governments and let them know how you feel on the subject.

Hope everyone has a good christmas break

  1. Thats so unfair. It is a violation of rights, if anything. Gays and lesbians are just like heterosexual couples. In my opinion public policy should be uninvolved.

  2. A question I have, after reading all the evidence of a positive influence a father (and probably mother too), is how do gay and lesbian “families” suffer from not having one? Perhaps it doesn’t apply to them? Also, I found from this site that gays-lesbians-transgenders are more likely to have higher alcohol, cigarette, drug, suicide, depression, AIDS and HIV incidences, and gay men have a 20 year shorter life expectance than straight men, so maybe there is a case against homosexuals. Here is the site from the internet if you want to check it out:
