Gay Parenting Pros And Cons

Amazing Essays
As I thought of an opposing viewpoint amongst society and the ethical moral values, along with the dilemmas, I decided to write about a problem I feel is still a big issue and that is Gay Parenting. Throughout generations, homosexuality was not only frowned upon, it was also repelled against and condemned. This is based off of traditions and religion acts, centuries and centuries ago, to this present day because it represents an act of sin. We are living in a different century, a time of change, where more and more lesbians and gays are coming out of the closet and openly admitting to having that life-style. Since, there is two men and two women in a relationship it makes it hard for them to reproduce children, unlike it is for …show more content…

During the time periods of the 1970 's heterosexuals started to protest their beliefs and by the 80 's and 90 's, places that uses donors allowed couples to become parents. There was still that homophobia and discrimination for laws and policies, from people all over the world.

If these men and women who prefer the same sex to be with, should be able to have children who will bring joy and love, as well as giving it to them as well. Whose job is it anyway to say who you can love and who can care for children? If single people can adopt or get a sperm donor to raise a child alone, why can 't homosexuals? It is just the case where in some eyes and laws it is forbidden to even be married as same sex couples, so it makes it not look like the traditional what a family should be. It is becoming more relevant in America, being gay or lesbian. As many as nine million children living in America have a gay or lesbian parent and will continue to rise as the years go on (Duke Journal of Gender Law & Policy). I feel a homosexual household can be loving, dedicated, and caring just as a heterosexual household can in the same exact way. Society needs to set aside its difference and do what is best for the millions of children without a loving family and place to call home. Denying these kids just because of the sexual orientation whom love each other is just injustice itself. Child development experts that both gay men and lesbians are

    Any type of doubt in a child 's mind as to wether or not his or her parents love each other will emotionally ruin that child. If a child has any chance of being emotionally unstable, that child will not be placed with the family that is attempting to adopt him or her. There are plenty of reasons why gays should not be allowed to adopt children. One is that homosexuality goes against the Bible and is an abomination in the eyes of God. Another is the emotional stability of a child in a homosexual family can be ruined by the prejudice they may or may not face because of who the parents are.…

    Many gay couples rushed to get married once the state level bans were lifted. Now that the federal government has recognized gay marriage, many states counties are still failing to recognize gay couples right to marriage. The premise is that gay marriage is immoral and considered a sin in most religions, so it should be banned and marriage should only count between men and women. The argument is that people who are attracted to someone of their same sex has nothing to do with their ability to receive the same basic rights as straight couples. The argument is when denying same-sex couples the right to marry, is discriminatory and a violation of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution.…

By not allowing same sex couples their right to marry showed that the government agreed with individuals that homosexuality is morally wrong.…

    But, the one thing that holds them back is the law. Many states in the U.S banned homosexual marriage due to the fact that marriage between man and woman has been around for the past millennia.
