All Happy Families: The Looming Battle Over Gay Parenting

This article talks about all the states that are currently trying to get laws preventing adoption and foster care by gays and lesbians. It also talks about states that already have these laws in place.

Also, in this aricle, Julian Sanchez explains that there is no evidence to support the idea that children raised by gays and lesbians are worse off than those children raised by heterosexuals. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Psychological Association agrees with that statement based on their research. They say that a person's ability to raise a child has nothing to do with their sexual orientation. They also say they have not yet seen one legitamate study that has a negative finding about gays and lesbians raising children.
