I believe there are too many children who need loving parents to deny one group of people adoption rights. A child will benefit from a healthy, loving home, whether the parents are gay or not.
At a same-sex marriage debate I went to a few years ago, the conservative voice kept repeating that same-sex couples shouldn’t adopt because, “Studies have shown that children do best with a mother and father.” It took a while but someone finally pointed out the obvious—it wasn’t that children do best with a mother and father, but with two loving parents.
So, you know, +1 to the above.
(NOTE: this is not to bash single parents, who are, through no fault of their own, severely disadvantaged by society and therefore not operating on even close to a level playing field.)
