Gay Adoption Rights

The subject of gay adoption rights always stirs up controversy. Some people think that homosexual people should not adopt children. They think that every child should have a mother and a father.

Gay couples feel discriminated against because they are being judged solely on their sexual orientation instead of their character.

I have heard of some homosexual women deciding to have artificial insemination to become pregnant. Then, they have their partner help raise their child with them without making their partner a legal guardian of their child. Many homosexuals just live with their partner's children without ever adopting the child.

If a gay couple meets the adoption requirements and are eager to adopt, why shouldn't they be allowed to adopt children regardless of their sexual orientation. Most children who are abused and have to be removed by child and family services are children who have heterosexual parents. Gay individuals are just as good at being parents as heterosexual people are.

Gay couples should be allowed to adopt children no matter where they live. Everyone should be given the chance to be a parent if they so choose. We are all equal no matter what race, gender, or sexual orientation we are. Love is a universal language.

Countries Where Gay Adoption is Legal:

Gay couples can adopt in the following countries: Guam, , Andorra, Belgium, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, South Africa, Spain, the United Kingdom. It is also legal in some parts of Australia, Canada, and the United States.

Countries Where Gay Adoption is not Legal:

In the countries of Italy, Latvia, and Portugal gay couples cannot adopt children.

In the United States

Some states such as Colorado, Nebraska, and Wisconsin are adamantly opposed to second-parent adoption by same-sex couples. These states have concluded that homosexual relationships are not "real" and that relationships of same sex couples have no business raising children anyway.

Other states, such as California, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont allow a same-sex partner to adopt their partner's biological children without their partner having to sacrifice any rights.

Still other states, such as Texas and Georgia are hit-and-miss, all depending on the personal beliefs of the judge assigned to your case.
