America, as a nation, is known to be equal and fair to everybody. It’s a nation that made black and white people equal, men and women equal, but why aren’t gay couples equal to straight couples? Everyone deserves the same rights and equality especially when it comes to adoption. Even though gay adoption is legal it is not fair or equal. Many places don’t allow gays to adopt and many couples don’t allow their children to be adopted by gay couples. Gays aren’t any different from us they do the same thing us they are just same sex couples. But they also want to be able to have children like hetero sexual couples are able to have. Allowing gay adoption to be equal and fair would not harm a child’s development in anyway it would actually help all of the kids that don’t have homes and are in foster homes. And it would save so much heart ache for the gay couples trying to adopt. Adoption not only allows some sex couples the possibility to have a child, but it also helps all the kids that don’t have a home. Many people believe that same sex couples shouldn’t raise children because they might not grow up “right”. Source C claims that hetero sexual couples raise their children better than a homosexual couple would. “Why do kids do better on every measure of social, emotional and physical well-being when they grow up with a married mother and father?” This is saying that a child will be a better person if they have mom and dad that are married to each other then what does this say about single parents or divorced parents and especially parents> children grow up as good people on every type of situation. In source D a grown person talk about being raised by a same sex couple. “We were not so different from other families. We loved and quar... ... middle of paper ... ...m and a dad. Same sex couples can have children the traditional way by birth but that doesn’t mean that having a child has to consist of being able to give birth to it. Hetero sexual couples that aren’t able to have children turn to adoption and same sex couples should be able to do the same thing. Adopting a child is a vast commitment that couples have dedicated themselves to. It takes lots of strength to raise a child and if a same sex couple wants to take on that commitment then they have the right to adopt a child because they are showing that they will love and raise the child. Making adoption for same sex couples fair would give the opportunity to gay couples to have children. They would not have to give up a dream of having children just because they aren’t able to have one traditionally. Having the ability to adopt would also give many children a home.
