Some people have some rather irrational and un-intelligent reasons against homosexual men/women's rights to adopt.
When you are born homosexual you are indeed somewhat cut out of the whole reproduction game. Supposedly many feel reproduction IS the very meaning of life. Some using that as reason against any form of gay rights.
But in doing so, millions of orphaned children remain parent-less and in poverty.
Consequence of a loving gay couple wanting to adopt a child, means they are actually more likely to be ready for that endeavour and of a sound matured mind.
Whereas Heterosexual couples can fall pregnant un-intentionally, many children around the world would have been born this way, through lapse of mind during a heated sexual moment proper protection isn't warn or taken, or protection is taken but doesn't prove effective to stop a pregnancy. Many people are against abortion so they have the unwanted/unexpected/unplanned child!
For a gay couple to have a child, they both have to be ready, it's currently scientifically impossible for one person or a couple of the same-sex to conceive a child without aide of someone of the opposite sex, or scientist/doctor's aide, and I'm pretty sure it's safe to say we'll never witness the events of the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie "Junior" were a male is able to carry a child! Therefore it's simply impossible for us to accidentally have a child! No such thing as an unwanted/unexpected/unplanned child!
- On paper, many gay couples will make better parents. They've often got more money, are often better educated and usually far less likely to commit a crime.
- One male parent and one female parent guarantees nothing any pair of imbeciles can have a child. But when you adopt, you face a thorough evaluation. Because all prospective gay parents will face this examination, the average gay parent will likely be far more adept and prepared than the average straight one.
- Most importantly, if we can improve the life of any orphaned child, don't we have a moral obligation to do so? Even accepting ridiculous arguments that straight couples are ideal, wouldn't gay people and single parents offer a preferable future than the orphanage? Enabling them to adopt means thousands of children get parents and the prospect of a much better life. Who would deny them that?
- - a legal proceeding that creates a parent-child relation between persons not related by blood; the adopted child is entitled to all privileges belonging to a natural child of the adoptive parents (including the right to inherit).
- refers to the adoption of children by a same-sex couple. Gay adoption is now legal in many Countries and States/Territory's around the world which include; Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain and England and Wales. Iceland, Norway, Germany and Denmark allow "stepchild-adoption" so that the partner in a civil union can adopt the natural (or sometimes even adopted) child of his partner. In the Republic of Ireland and some other countries, individual persons, whether heterosexual/homosexual, cohabiting/single may apply for adoption.
Within the U.S., Florida is the only state that completely prohibits gay adoption. Mississippi, Oklahoma, Colorado and Utah all make same-sex adoption virtually impossible. Critics of anti-gay adoption policies also point out that in many of the states that have bans on gay adoption, gays are still able to act as foster parents.
In other countries same-sex adoption is currently being reviewed along with the right to marriage/same-sex unions etc.
One prominent figure in America's gay adoption debate is actress and comedian Rosie O'Donnell, who is an adoptive parent in a same-sex relationship. O'Donnell is remembered for her efforts in challenging Florida's gay adoption ban.
