For many couples in the world childbirth is difficult. There are a lot of families who have trouble reproducing or have another complications. Adoption can be a long, expensive, and stressful process for many. Seeing these two women achieve success and adopt a daughter of their own just brings so many emotions. Homosexual couples most likely felt overwhelmed knowing that they might soon be getting this same chance.
In the article “Where’s the Moral Outrage?” Michael Reagan asks about the “...gay marriage thing”(Reagan par. 1). The article mentions that gay couples that adopt children influences them. “This can be very damaging to adopted children”(Reagan par. 2). Also mentioned was the “...slippery slope leading toward gay marriage”(Reagan par.
What this argument does not take into account is that Many Girls look to hold the typical title of the beloved & adorable “Daddy 's little girl”. To a girl her father is the biggest part regarding male behavior. Studies show that adolescent girls who grow up without their dads, have a greater proximity and distance problems to peers and boys which could interfere with relationships later on in their lives which could unintentionally have them become teen moms. Lesbians more than likely do not have a close male adult in their lives so if they were to adopt a boy then the child would not have a male role model in their lives which could have them act out in life and become criminals or they will be more feminine. Ultimately, the legalization of gay adoption everywhere would greatly benefit our society.
What is best for any child is to have parents that love and care for them and to be brought up in a nurturing and affectionate environment. In the end, this has nothing to do with whether the couple is of the opposite or of the same sex. By strongly agreeing with this statement, I am locating my belief on the Left Wing side.

The United States legalizing gay/lesbian marriage and adoption was a huge step for the LGBT community. Even though people of LGBT can both marry and adopt, some people believe in the myths and stereotypes which suggests that same-sex couples are unfit to be parents. A growing interest in research studies involving LGBT couples and the wellbeing of children leaves people questioning if gay and lesbian couples can be appropriate parents for children. There are many research studies with evidence as to why same-sex couples are or are not fit to care for a child. One study stated that children growing up with same-sex parents fare just as well as those who grow up with different-sex parents.
III) Homosexuals can provide the love, care and home that a child needs (Reason). A) Homosexuals work and know what it means to provide a home not only for themselves but for a child (Warrant). B) According to the article “Gay Parenting Pros and Cons” by Crystal Lombardo gay parents are about the benefits of the new family unit and its impact to society, they are able to help in focusing on the child’s welfare and are able to give the child they adopt the opportunity of living in a loving family which they have not yet experienced (Backing). 1)
In a recent surveys it is shown that over 27% of children in America are being raised by single parents, and over 2 million children are raised by homosexual couples. The old average image of a middle class white family with two parents, and a stable environment is no longer the normal or highly viewed social standing. Various movies, television shows, books, and other forms of literature depict families of different background and standings. For example, in the popular television show Modern Family depicts two gay men raising their adopted daughter and a blended family, the people on the show are always caring for and show constant love for their children. Even though they are not under normal circumstances the children of these different families are growing up in a loving and stable environment.
Colson states “The family, led by a married mother and father, is the best available structure for both child rearing and cultural health” (Colson, page 578). Says who? How is a non-heterosexual couple any less capable of raising a child? Not to mention, all the single parents out there due to either divorce or became widowed. A stable and loving environment is what a child needs, not for people to place a label on his or her parents.
Homosexuality is becoming more and more accepted and integrated into today’s society, however, when it comes to homosexuals establishing families, a problem is posed. In most states, homosexuals can adopt children like any other married or single adult. There are many arguments to this controversial topic; some people believe that it should be legal nationally, while others would prefer that is was banned everywhere, or at least in their individual states. There are logical reasons to allow gays to adopt children, but for some, these reasons are not enough. The main issue really is, what is in the best interest of the child?
Adoption is a way for children who cannot be cared for by their birth parents to become members of another family. In most countries,, children are raised by one or both parents. sometimes both parents cannot provide the love and care their child's needs. “The parents may be young and not prepare or financially-to
Gay adoption is the adoption of children by same sex couples. Based on this topic, I’d like to look into the question “Are children adopted by gay parents more likely to have the psychological problem?” And the thesis I stated is that gay couples are able to provide a warm and normal environment for adopted children to grow up. I want to focus on this topic from the current situation of gay adoption, gay couples are capable of raising children and children adopted by gay parents are the same as those who born in heterosexual families.
Marriage brings legal rights that secure a couple that if not wedded, they should not have. Then again, some contend that gay person marriage may make issue bring up a youngster and upset the normal, natural reproduction of humanity (Burns, 2005).

UNICEF (United Nations International Children 's Emergency Fund) UNICEF deals with child marriage as part of its broader approach to gender discrimination that undermines the rights of children and women. In order to ensure that girls have an equal opportunity at education, which is imperative in preventing child marriages and the overall development of girls, UNICEF 's Global Girls ' Education Program operates in more than 60 countries. In addition to supporting campaigns and creating education systems, UNICEF also has helped develop two successful initiatives in South Asia and sub-Saharan African, the regions with highest rate of child marriage. The Meena initiative and the Sara Adolescent Girl Communication Initiative served as
When people talk about the homosexual life style, typically the first thing that follows is how it is against the religion of many, which then leads people to deny the idea of ever letting a same-sex couple adopt a child. Though in their religion it may be wrong to live “that lifestyle”, who is to say whose religion or belief is wrong or right. Not all people live their lives in a religious way and due to this, sometimes the idea of religion should be removed from the situation so that another point of view can be seen. Another reason same-sex adoption is seen so negatively is because of the idea that a child must have both a mother and father in their lives to be happy and healthy(Fitzgibbons). This perspective is one that seems to be the biggest problem for most people when it comes to the idea of a same-sex couple adopting a child.
