Gay adoption: Should gay couples be given the same legal rights as heterosexuals in adopting children?

  • Think About the Parentless Children

    First of all, kids are a big responsibility and it takes someone who is committed to wanting to have kids to take care of them well. If homosexuals want to have kids, let them because they want to have that responsibility.

    Also, 2 million LGTB couples in the US want to adopt. That's basically 2 million potential kids to have a home., Think about the children!!!!!

    When I say think about the children, people think that having same-sex parents will scar them for life and will not give kids the necessities to survive because of "two of the same kind of brain" (quoting my friend whose against this). The truth is, all kids need to develop is the basic necessities, love, food, water, a comfortable home and plenty of learning experiences.

    There are also worries about how a kid will deal with others who have heterosexual parents. As long as heterosexual parents raise their kids to treat everyone with respect, there is no issue.

    We live in a world where it hurts to be different. Take it from a south-asian woman without the desire to procreate or form intimate relationships (I have plenty of friends and family I love dearly but don't want a boyfriend, girlfriend, wife or husband). If we treat being different as alright, life will be easier for everyone.

  • Yes,gay couples should be given the same legal rights as straight couples.

    There is no reason at all why gay couples should not have the same rights as straight couples when it comes to adoption.There is even evidence to show that gay couples may actually be better parents because they are better able to focus their attention on the few children that normally exist in each gay family.

  • Gay couples are no different

    Gay couples are no different from heterosexual couples. In fact, the fact that they can't biologically have children makes their determination to become parents all the stronger. Going through adoption can be lengthy, costly, and painful, and if gay couples are willing to do this, they are absolutely more fit and prepared than most parents of biological children who conceive accidentally and just live with it.

  • Gay couples should be given the same legal rights as heterosexuals in adopting children.

    Gay couples should not be discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. If a gay couple wants to adopt a child, they should be permitted to do so. In fact, since gays cannot naturally have kids, they should be allowed to adopt more. There is more of a need for gay couples to adopt.

  • Children need loving home

    I believe that gay couples should be allowed to adopt children as any heterosexual couple would be able to. I feel that the expressed opinions that it would be harmful for the child is based upon fear. This is a tactic very similar to stopping interracial marriage and families in the 1960's.

  • Yes they should!

    Who cares if you are who you are! Kids need a LOVING family, no matter what! Haters keep saying: "If this kid is raised by a gay parents, they will become gay." NO! Kids will learn about ACCEPTANCE! People need to GROW UP! Children with gay parents will be healthier too.

  • Gay couples should be given the same legal rights as heterosexual couples.

    A common fear among older generations is that gay couples are incapable of raising a child due to the lack of a female parental figure in the equation. Besides their lifestyle, many people think that just because there are 2 of the same gender raising a child, the child will either grow up gay or be a victim of child abuse. However there are many children who deal with these issues regardless of being raised by a heterosexual ,gay couple or a single parent.

  • Yes they are doing a great service

    The point to adoption is that a child who doesn't have a permanent home is being given a chance to have one. If the people are qualified to take on the child they shuld be given every right and opportunity to do so no matter their sexual orientation. To do anything different would only punish the child.

  • Gay Couples Deserve to Adopt

    Without a doubt, gay couples deserve the right to adopt children. They deserve the same rights as heterosexual couples, and most states have not righted this wrong yet. The fact of the matter is that gay couples are just as capable at raising healthy and happy children over the course of many years.

  • Why is it such a big deal if the parents are gay or not?

    The fact that they are willing to spend their lives devoted to a child is better then not wanting one at all. The children deserve a set of parents who love them for who they are. Whether gay or not should not determine parenting skills. As long as the y pass the mandatory tests, financially stable, and committed, there should be no problem at all.

  • This is unholy and wrong

    22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable. In Leviticus 18. The bible states not to do these things. These people will be punished and should not spread this to innocent children who wouldn't know any better. A child needs a more and a father. The world was created that way

  • No, Gays should not have equal adoption rights

    Yes, acceptance and equal opportunities are important, but it is still not legal for gay couples to get married in every state. It is important for kids to have a stable home environment, therefore they should only be adopted to married couples, meaning gays should not be given the same legal rights to adopt children.

  • No they shouldn't.

    This is not bigotry or discrimination but there is proof that a child needs a mother and a father.
    Shows proof to that statement above. The introduction of two fathers or two mothers into the family upsets a balance. It is proven that childhood is an easily affected time. That's why a balanced lifestyle is extremely important.

  • Common sense,they have not right to pervert others children

    If there was an adam and adam these homosexuals would not be there, they come from a mother and father, so they cannot just take someone else child and pervert it, growing to see two males kissing and in wrong positions...The boy or girl will grow with the notion its right to have sex with same sex...Its absolutely wrong.
