LGBT adoption is the adoption of children by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons. This may be in the form of a joint adoption by a same-sex couple, adoption by one partner of a same-sex couple of the other's biological child (step-child adoption) and adoption by a single LGBT person. Joint adoption by same-sex couples is legal in 25 countries. Opponents of LGBT adoption question whether same-sex couples have the ability to be adequate parents while other opponents question whether natural law implies that children of adoption possess a natural right to be raised by heterosexual parents. Since constitutions and statutes usually fail to address the adoption rights of LGBT persons, judicial decisions often determine whether they can serve as parents either individually or as couples.
No, adoption is not a right; it is a privilege
bro literally what.. LOL
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.
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?

No, and I believe a mother and father family structure is best for the child
A Mother and Mother family structure can be just as good for a child as a Mother and Father family structure. Theres no difference between the two structures except for what the parents have in their pants.
Exactly. People make excuses as to why this doesn't make sense or would "turn the kids gay" or "not be healthy" or isn't "normal", bu that's all nonsense. The thing that matters for being parents is your love for your child--not your gender and the gender of your partner.
Why can't two gay men find Two Lesbians, get to know each other almost like dating and arrange a clinic date for insemination?
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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+
