Gay People Adopting Children

The idea of gay people adopting children can be a controversial topic and is contested by many religious and conservative factions. Most of these concerns are based on misinformation or from a basis of discrimination. Some believe that gay people adopting children means they are more likely to become homosexuals themselves, although statistics show that homosexual individuals are more commonly raised by heterosexual parents.

Currently, an estimated 65,500 adopted children are living with a lesbian or gay parent. Homosexual couples are more likely to seek out foster and adoption opportunities from the state because of the inability to have their own or a desire to make a positive social contribution. Unfortunately, in many states, adoption by homosexual couples is prohibited or extremely complex. The Child Welfare Information Gateway estimates that there are between 8 and 10 million children being raised by gay parents. In addition to that, according to the U.S. Census, an estimated two million gay people are interested in adopting. There are approximately 118,000 children in foster care waiting to be adopted. Allowing gay adoption would help ease the strain and burden on the foster care system, with no negative impact on the children themselves. States such as Arkansas and Florida prohibit same-sex couples from adopting children while Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, New Hampshire, and Utah only allow adoption by a single GLBT individual.

Gay people adopting children continues to be an issue of civil rights in states. While gay people adopting children has no negative statistical evidence that shows it should be prohibited, a religious standpoint often creates a legal situation that prevents it. But what about the children’s welfare? Gay people adopting children means more children in loving and supportive homes, and relief in states that must provide continuing support for these children in foster care situations.
