This is an issue that should be determined by each individual state government. If the state chooses to allow this than they should be able to do so.

No, adoption is not a right; it is a privilege

 @jilliankeserichWomen’s Equality from Washington disagreed…9mos

Yes Yes, as long as they pass the same background checks as straight couples

bro literally what.. LOL

@9XGBR2YWomen’s Equality from Virginia commented…9mos

exactly! gay couples, or all queer couples, are humans too. wtf @69RQ7P4 also ofc ur republican *eyeroll*

@6B352C5Republicanfrom Texas  answered…2yrs

I believe gays are people and God says to love all people. If they are able to care for the child in a better manner than the child's biological parents, then I say it would be good for the child to have someone who will love them.

They should have the right to adopt a child; however, a mother and father in the home for the child should be a priority over a single parent or a gay or lesbian couple.

@MacKenna-Beverid…Independent from Illinois disagreed…1 day

I don't really understand why my wife and I would come second to a straight couple if we go through the same process. If a gay/lesbian couple or a single parent has the means to take care of the child, why would it matter?

@OfficialSeeversLibertarianfrom Pennsylvania  answered…1mo

This should be up to the discretion of the adoption agency.

@B3P5KL6Veteran from Ohio answered…2mos

Yes, but adoption agencies should prioritize offering them to straight couples first because that is a better environment for a kid to be raised in. That said, gay couples should still be allowed to adopt children.

@B39XRH4Constitution from Idaho answered…3mos

Not enough research has been done into the effects of such living arrangements to be able to say yes or no.

@68JXHDQRepublicanfrom Connecticut  answered…2yrs

A study is needed. To see the effects of individual environment, social class, financial standing...etc. You know, the kind of "study" that is done by dumbocrats, to later implement " regulations" (control).

Why can't two gay men find Two Lesbians, get to know each other almost like dating and arrange a clinic date for insemination?

@9R5B8GBPeace and Freedom from California commented…1yr

I think the difficulty in that makes it unrealistic. Also for people like myself even if I end up with an opposite sex partner I still want to adopt

@64CFX7ZRepublicanfrom California  answered…2yrs

That is a hard question as I believe that every child should have a father and a mother. It is the healthiest way for a child to develop, in my opinion

@9V2HSDWTranshumanist from New Jersey commented…1yr

Could you elaborate please? I'd like to hear your thoughts (genuinely), as for many people I think this justification is just a default excuse for homophobia

@6PKNC95Republicanfrom Georgia  answered…2yrs

I think this is too new of an issue, and the children who have been adopted by gay couples haven't reached adult age to be able to voice their own opinion as to how they felt about their childhood.

@6BHCKSCLibertarianfrom Florida  answered…2yrs

To the same extent that black kids should be raised by black parents, to the extent possible all kids should be raised by a mother and father.

@6CN9X6TDemocratfrom Guam  answered…2yrs

Psychometric Assessments to gay couples to ensure they have the right balance of male-female thinking in the family-compartmentalization and interconnectivity.

@6BMFB2QGreenfrom Texas  answered…2yrs

A person with same-sex attraction who is not practicing the homosexual lifestyle should have the same adoption rights as straight couples.

@6D3Q98RDemocratfrom Florida  answered…2yrs

What in the name. That's like telling a five year old to never go back to their mother, if they don't understand why you guys are both men or women and don't understand the production of human. Explain to them at least, if you don't see if and they are uncomfortable with the situation, please for your adopted son or daughter dress up like a men or women so they don't feel uncomfortable. Do it for them if they feel this way. I know this might be a terrible thing to ask of you guys.

@9R5B8GBPeace and Freedom from California commented…1yr

Did you know that homophobia is learned? Did you know that you can learn about the reproductive system without having opposite sex parents? Did you know that this is just you purposefully making society even more hetro-normitive and homophobic? Also by your logic single mothers and fathers shouldn't be able to raise children.

@9L5J84TWomen’s Equality from Texas answered…2yrs

I do believe this because being LGBTQ shouldn't be in any way a problem when it comes to adoption and raising children.

@9KQYTK8Libertarian from Texas answered…2yrs

Adoption should be open to all who pass background checks, classes, and interviews.

@9WF4F5LPeace and Freedom from Missouri answered…10mos

Yes, because it shouldn't matter what sex your with to adopt a child

@688XR9XRepublicanfrom Virginia  answered…2yrs

My main concern is that adoption agencies shouldn't be made to work with gay couples in adoptions if it is against their religious beliefs.

@6C35J9WGreenfrom Illinois  answered…2yrs

yes as long as the child is home schooled, because the child will be bullied a lot so if they are home schooled they won't have to deal with kids bullying them.

@9R5B8GBPeace and Freedom from California commented…1yr

I think instead of making the couple bend to society people should instead stop being homophobic

@649BDXXRepublicanfrom New York  answered…2yrs

Yes, but the same-sex foster parents should be prosecuted for child abuse if they are forcing their homosexual views on to said child. They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law if the child grows up with psychological issues due to this kind of indoctrination/brainwashing.

@9R5B8GBPeace and Freedom  from California commented…1yr

By your logic, opposite sex couples should be prosecuted for child abuse if they are forcing their heterosexual views on said child.

@9RCSPC8Democrat from Minnesota answered…1yr

everyone deserves the same rights. If the child can grow up happy and healthy there is no problem.

@9VQP3VTGreen from Colorado answered…11mos

This should not be an issue. There is no credible evidence whatsoever which suggests that same sex parents are inferior to opposite sex ones.

@9DBFTL9 from New York answered…2yrs

Yes, of course gay couples should have the same adoption rights as straight couples, as long as they are subjected to the same background checks that straight couples are. I don't think that they should be denied service, even if their request is against the business's own religious beliefs, because I believe this is discrimination against LGBTQAI+ people, which they should be protected under law from being turned away by adoption agencies because the couples are LGBTQAI+

@PerkiLlamaPeace and Freedom from Florida answered…3mos

I don’t care. I don’t have kids and I’m not planning to adopt anytime soon. I could care less what gay couples are able to do or not.

@rwilliams4co62Republican from Colorado answered…3mos

Yes, but a private adoption agency should have the right to refuse to adopt to a gay couple.

@JoeBamaAmerican Solidarity from Alabama answered…4mos

Yes; but adoption agencies should prioritize offering children to straight couple before offering to gay couples.

@B2GY2JXConstitution from Pennsylvania answered…4mos

Yes, but adoption agencies should still prioritize healthy & stable straight couples first.

@B299VTXConstitution from Florida answered…4mos

Yes, but religious adoption organizations can deny the adoption.

@B27NND4Republican from Utah answered…4mos

I believe that Children can learn more in a Straight couple, but gay couples have the right for adoption because they are helping the children and giving them a home.
