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.
Gay couples happen to understand children more they too have been left alone and criticized by society. Children are left without parents and therefore other couples will try to adopt them. Just like any other human being who hard work to make money, gay couples should be allowed to adopt because they have their jobs, education and are affectionate that they provide to a child. Overall, if their biological parents did not want him/her, gay couples would be a good candidate that would actually provide that financial support they need and as well understand them.

(White) For the most part, parents and adults keep what happens behind closed doors, private, therefore, there would be no reason for a homosexual person to flaunt their sex life, especially in front of a child. Pros of Adoption by Gay Parents Adoption is a very important part of the American lifestyle. The welfare of children needs to be put in front of homophobia. There are an estimated 500,000 children in foster care nation wide, and 100,000 of these children are awaiting adoption. In 2013, only one child of every six available for adoption was actually adopted.

If they are the same sex or opposite sex both parents can handle decision making and parenting without worry. This a free country anybody and everybody have the right to get married whether they’re gay or not, i feel like a gay marriage is a real relationship because they basically are doing the same thing the opposite sex are doing but it just that they can't have any kids but if they wanted to they can. Whether they’re the same sex or opposite sex they still have control over their relationship and can take responsibility of their own action. A relationship is about trust, communication, and being able to commit to your partner the same sex can give all that so i don’t know why it matter about gay marriage being a legitimate relationship.
Nonetheless, LGBT people the same equal opportunity. Homosexual couples should be granted the same freedom to adopt children like heterosexual couples because there are so many children in the foster care who need a nurturing home; it is narrow-minded to think that only heterosexual couples have the capability of raising a child properly; and it is prejudice to exclude homosexuals from adopting a child based on their sexuality. A parent-child relationship may be one of the most sacred and cherished gifts in life but it is also a privilege. The main purpose of adoption is not just for the satisfaction of a couple, regardless of their sexuality—ultimately, it is for the well-being of the adopted child.
If a homosexual couple is capable to be loving, nurturing, and dedicated just as a heterosexual couple, then they should equally have the same rights to adopt. Many people say that a child needs a mother and father figure to be raised right and to provide both viewpoints of gender. Some other people believe that gender does not matter when parenting. Society needs to set aside its differences and do what is best for the thousands of kids that are without a loving family. Denying these kids a home just because two individuals of the same sex love each other is injustice.
His support for gay marriage was itself a landmark turn, but just as notable was its indirect affirmation of gay couples as parents, which served to rebut the standard argument against gay marriage, that it risks the well being of children and the family. Gay marriage should be legal in all states, it gives someone a chance to be loved.You wouldn't just be making one couples dreams come true, but many others as well.Everyone deserves to fall in love with who ever they want, and deserve to take the next step which is marriage.Everyone deserves a chance to be more open about there feelings, and with everyone accepting them it would not be a problem.Give others the opportunity you have but they do not .
They go to school, work, pay tax and other things which is no different than heterosexual parents so they should have the same right to raise a children. The first amendment states the freedom of speech, religion and expression and refusing the gay adoption is the violation of the amendment. “There are 16.2 double orphans in the world which are waiting for parents to adopt them (Johnson Ramon)”. The sex of parents should not matter in that case because the children are the priority. The children are better raised by same sex parents where they could learn what is wrong and right, good access of education and learn a family structure than growing in a foster care.
People say it is not right, and that it is unnatural, which I feel they think that they have to be twice as “perfect” as the heterosexual parents are. In this paper I plan to discuss the issues that Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgendered Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) families go through while trying to start a family of their own. The issues will range from adoption and the issues faced in trying to adopt a child, to custody battles and how sexual orientation could play a role in the “well-being” of a child, to how being brought up by a LGBTQ headed home could affect, if in any way, a child’s development. Society’s Effects on Gay Parenting As a LGBTQ headed family the pressures of society can weigh heavy on the way you raise your child. In a recent article written by Lev (2010) it was found that the LGBTQ headed families often felt extreme pressure to be sure to raise a heterosexual child or children as well as a child or children who behave in such ways as a “normal” person of their gender would typically behave.

Children are the important part of the family and it is in their best interest to be in the proper care. If my argument is not implemented there will be a lot of confusion. Because, there are many children living their lives not knowing if they have a mother and a father or two fathers and two mothers, because they never had a mother and father figure in the life.
