Denying homosexual couples the right to adopt may be helpful to the children, however, by letting same-gender couples adopt, they receive a more stable, permanent home. Children in the adoption system or the foster care system are without parents to look up to and learn from, and that can essentially be more harmful to the child. Perhaps what children need is the love that homosexual couples have the potential to provide. They need a family. This is debated in the article titled “Adoption Bills Put Religion Ahead of Kids" when it states "I'm not approaching this from an equal protection or parental advocacy perspective.
Have you ever thought about how it feels to be ripped out of the only place that you know as home? To get no explanation of why your parents just did not want you anymore? Not a lot of people think about this. Usually, the only people that do think about this is children that are experiencing or have experienced this problem. The children’s rights website stated that, “On any given day, there are nearly 428,000 children in foster care in the United States.”() All of those children have to be reminded daily that the foster care system has a lot of problems in it.
Plenty of placements are also done if the child is initially placed in short-term care but needs to be moved to long term. However, the more changes a child experiences decreases the chance of them returning home or being adopted. There are many children that are stuck in the foster care system because they do not have a biological family or an adoptive
According to Connie Marshner, who is the Vice-President for Development of the American Family Business Institute, while there were over 225,000 parents that had taken steps to adopt in 2006, only a small percentage had been able to take in a child, because the regulations and long processes involved kept them from doing so (Marshner 2006). This issue has an enormous effect on the foster care system, because the strict requirements for parents make it extremely difficult for children to leave the foster care system, and, thus, many foster children have to live in crowded foster homes instead of a permanent living situation. Marshner’s ideas are similar to Conna Craig’s, in the sense that the government’s actions, whether they are structuring funds or creating regulations, have a substantial effect on the number of foster children in the system. Nevertheless, there are still more unique ways that the federal government has a role in regulating the
Naomi Bennett Mrs. Bauch Speech 18 May 2016 Many children struggle with the fact of not having a mother or father figure and gay marriage would definitely not helping no matter how loving or kind they are it just isn?t enough for the child?s need and wants. Why you should care because in a contest between the desires of homosexuals and the needs of our children we can?t allow our children to lose (Hansen). Gay Marriage is unholy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementary under no circumstances can they be approved (Ratzinger). In Romans chapter one twenty six through twenty seven the bible says God gave them over to shameful lusts.
Family rejection on the basis of sexual orientation and gender was the most frequently cited factor contributing to LGBT homelessness (46%). Families are so caught up with keeping things the same as when they grew up, so being gay or wanting different things is unacceptable to
Foster care is unfavorable to American society, because “according to national statistic 40 to 50 percent of those children will never complete high school. Sixty-six percent of them will be homeless, go to jail or die within one year of leaving the foster care system at 18.” “80 percent of the prison population once was in foster care, and that girls in foster care are 600 percent more likely than the general population to become pregnant before the age of 21.” BRITTANY NUNN (2012), author of Statistics Suggest Bleak Futures for Children Who Grow up in the Foster Care
Teen pregnancy is a big issue where I come from. 90 % of the population are single family homes which once were teen parents. The trend still continues. The homes are broken and divided, with the majority of the homes having only mothers and no fathers and that does impact the discipline being conducted in the homes. Fathers won’t be friends to the children as much as the mothers would.
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) According to the article “Pros & Cons of Foster Care” children and the family involved in the foster care system not only have many resources available to them provided such as education, but they also receive a small amount of money to help the foster family in providing for the child (Rebuttal). IV) Homosexuals are still people regardless of sexual orientation and deserve to parent without interference from peoples judgements and beliefs
Background Information The foster care system is meant to be a temporary place for children to go when they are either waiting for a new home to be adopted into or they are waiting to be returned to their original family. Yet many that go into the system never leave. They are switched from family to family because they have behavioral issues that nobody can seem to handle (Octoman, McLean & Sleep, 2014). Because of abuse the foster care has millions of children in the foster care system. When the child is moved from his former situation this abuse does not end (Woods, Farineau, McWey, 2013).
