    A Family Is A Family

    The arguments I've heard agent this, 1st a child needs a mom and dad...Well there are plenty of families out there with single mothers or fathers so if the child getting adequate care there why not have them have a home with 2 loving parents in a 2 moms or 2 dads situation. 2nd...

    I don't understand why some people are against

    gay adoption. It means you prefer a child to be orphan rather than see he happy with the love of 2 dads or mums?

    Why Not?

    To be great loving parents should not require there being a female and a male. It's about raising a child successfully. I do not believe that you can be turned gay, therefore having gay parents will not turn the child gay. That's ridiculous. My father is gay, and my brother is...

    I Hated Fostercare And I Love My Daddy And My Pops. What's The Problem?

    I was in fostercare for two years when I was little and hated it. Until I was adopted by two wonderful men, who love me more than anyone else in the world. My big brother also. Why would you deny a child, a chance to be happy? I sure wouldn't.

    Most Definitely

    I am ProChoice and Pro alot of issues. I strongly believe that there are way too many kids in foster care and anyone suitable should be able to adopt them. The same sex partners that I know are wonderful parents and don't judge their children like others I know.

    Any person can be a parent/s to anyone

    as long as they do their responsibilities and doesnt hurt the kid/s! :) the fck is wrong with some people?! just because they have different sexuality/gender/orientation/etc doesnt mean they can't be a parent/s

    Why Not?

    In the olden days, people got married when they wanted to start a family. I think gays should be allowed to start family units. I also think gay people should be allowed to have children. There are more unsuitable parents out there than gay people... like druggies for examples...

    Way too many kids are in foster homes, not really receiving all they should. If someone really wants and can raise a child properly, single, gay couple, les couple, even a damn polygamous family, why not let them? I don't think gay parents are better by default, but they are...
