Arguments Against Homosexual Adoption

Decent Essays
“Adoption is about finding families for children, not finding children for families “says Dr. Joyce Maguire Pavao. They 're many orphans in the world, but there are just not enough families or parents to take them in. There aren’t that many families who can and will adopt children, whether it’s; they can’t support them or they just don’t want to deal with children. People are fear of change, and change is not always bad as people think it could be. For example, some would say that it could cause psychological problems that it isn’t natural; it is supposed to be a woman and a man they say that homosexuals wouldn’t be good parents. It is not just because of that, also; of religious reason people are against of homosexuals adopting children. Everyone should have the privilege to adopt a kid regardless …show more content…
Having parents with the same gender doesn 't change who they would be. It would actually teach them something about it like an open mind about who they are, and respect others for who they 're. It doesn’t matter about the parent if having a homosexual parent and a heterosexual parent.
They are just the same they also deserve children if they want to adopt a kid. It’s really sad when some ignorant talks about someone being attached to someone with the same gender; “they could hurt the kid” just because they are not the same as them, and that they will confuse the kid. Everyone is the same we are all human we have the same equal right. They should let them adopt regardless of their sexual orientation. I doubt that they would want to adopt a kid when they don’t even know the responsibility in taking care of a

    In my point of view, I think homosexual couples should not have the right to raise a child. I understand that they want to get married, form a family and be a happy family with children but that doesn’t always mean that the child would be happy too. Homosexuals cannot make their own babies, but that doesn’t mean they should be allowed to adopt or raise a child. Even though only lesbian couple can reproduce the same way a heterosexual couple can, but that still doesn’t make it right. Many people believe that a child is better raise with a homosexual couple but sometimes is not always like that.…

    The point of adoption is to give a child the best home and parents there is but yet but, some adoption agencies focus on race and sexuality. Being a good parent has nothing to do with one’s sexuality but how you are raising the child. Some say same-sex parenting is harmful to a child but in reality the only harm that hurts the child is when people discriminate against the children for having homosexual parents. Research shows same-sex parenting create households built on equality, and are often more impartial when it comes to child rearing, household chores, and overall relationship maintenance. It is shown that children raised by homosexuals are raised the same as heterosexuals when it comes to physical and mental health.…

    No one should be willing to sacrifice a child’s mental and emotional health for their own wants. In conclusion, homosexual couples’ parenting is not as effective or healthy for children. Men and women were created to have their own roles and responsibilities while still being able to support and help each other. Not only that, but child being raised in a gay partnership will be bullied for being raised differently. Gay parenting needs to be looked at as more than just a decision or lifestyle that affects two people.…

    The average person would not want to have a child with a horizontal identity. After all, why would you want to have a child who would have to face so many struggles in their life?

    “Gays and Lesbians adopt at a slightly higher rate than married heterosexual couples.”. Having a strong relationship with you 're parent/parents is so important because that is who you look up to and who you are influenced by you aren 't influenced by rather than their sexual preference. Fine parenting is motivated by providing a loving, safe home for their child. Our society isn 't very accepting of same sex relationships, I would even say they are frowned upon and or talked very poorly about.

    Children shouldn’t be exposed to these things in the world. And we need to find a way to stop it. I believe the reason for women being abused in the worst way which is sexually is because of male actions. These thing would never happen if males respected women and weren’t so horny. It’s always surprising to see when a case of sexual harassment comes out into the public because we would think by now males would know not to do it and it’s illegal.…
