No, and adoption agencies should prioritize offering children to straight couples before offering to gay couples

Yes. There is no reason to believe that a child is better off with straight couples.

Adoption is baby-trafficking. Selling human beings for profit is immoral. Adoption should be replaced with permanent legal guardianship.

So if I believed that I am Elizabeth Is the Queen of England I would be, at best, tagged as irrational and delusional. If I am a man who believes he is a woman, I am not delusioal. I am gay. Reminds me of a story. After God created human beings Satan scoffed and said he could do better. On the day of the demo, Satan scooped up a handful of dirt, at which point God says, "Dude! get your own dirt!"

Yes, but I think they should have to go through more of a thorough process to see if it is a good idea. I don't think every same-sex couple should be automatically permitted to adopt. Are they in a long-term, very stable and loving relationship? Are they going to provide a balanced view of the sexes - nothing wrong with being gay, but are they going to raise the child in a home that reveres both sexes. Are they adopting the child for the child's sake or for theirs?

Must pass rigorous background checks. Must have been co-habitating atleast 10 years. Must be atleast 35 years old. Must have reasonable income. Must open trust account for child for $1M.

@53378BHfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

Only if one of the same-sex partners is the parent or legal guardian of the child concerned.

For myself as a gay man, I do not believe in denying the right for other other queer couples to adopt children, however I would have a difficult time in accepting this reality for myself, believing that a traditional family structure is much better suited to be raising children.

@594F2C3from British Columbia  answered…2yrs

No, adoption agencies should prioritize offering children to straight couples. However not just any straight couple as I'm sure there are better suited gay couples than some straight couples.

@leliwiteConservativefrom British Columbia  answered…2yrs

Yes, so long as the couples involved are deemed to have a balanced approach to child-rearing and education and are not radical Lesbian (or gay male) separatists who despise the opposite sex. I say this as a gay man myself who is an uncle but has, for the moment, and since I became an adult, no desire to be a father to any children, adopted or biological.

This should be the kid's choice if they want to be a part of the specific family.

@96T9ZKKfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

I personally as a muslim don't talk about it often and in future won't affect me I don't really care but everyone should be treated equally I guess.

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…2mos

No, each child has the natural right to experience and be raised within a mother and father family structure. However, adoption agencies should allow gay couples to adopt when they are found to be more capable of meeting the child's needs over any interested straight couples

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…2mos

No, each child has the natural right to experience and be raised within a mother and father family structure. Allow gay couples to adopt only when they are found to be more suitable to meet the child's needs over any interested straight couples

@96D74VSLiberalfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

No. It’s more on the metal state of the child adopted because of mostly bullying.

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…2mos

No, each child has the natural right to experience and be raised within a mother and father family structure. Gay couples should be allowed to adopt when they are found to be more capable of meeting an individual child's needs than all interested straight couples

@968JXMJfrom British Columbia  answered…2mos

Yes but I believe a mother and father family structure is better for a child

@967V2B4from Alberta  answered…2mos

I choose to remain neutral on political subjects, but I believe everyone should be treated equally.

@965WGSDfrom British Columbia  answered…2mos

No, studies have shown the superiority of the nuclear family, though, if certain measures were taken such as some sort of female/male nurturer then absolutely.

@965PJS8from Quebec  answered…2mos

I believe a traditional family structure is best for children but to each their own

@965GMBKfrom British Columbia  answered…2mos

Yes, but a Mother-Father figure is the best for the child's development

@95ZFSD5from Alberta  answered…2mos

No as some gay people may try certain things with the child as they age so It depends on who the person adopting acts around kids/ history.

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…2mos

No, each child has the right to experience and be raised within a mother and father family structure. Gay couples should be allowed to adopt only when they are found to be more psychologically and financially able to meet the child's needs over interested straight couples

@95MW2DSfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

I feel like yes if the child that they want to adopt is ok with entering a gay home.

@95J9TLWfrom British Columbia  answered…3mos

Yes, as long as they don't brings the same sexual orientation or they don't do any impact to the children's future.

No because roughly 82% of sexual assault against minors is commited by gay individuals

@95BTMTYfrom British Columbia  answered…3mos

gay, lesbian, and infertile couples should have priority as they cannot produce their own children

@9594NQKfrom Ontario  answered…3mos

Whatever the sex, if one is capable of providing a good parenting to a child, they should have same adoption rights as straight couples.

@94XMTNCfrom Alberta  answered…3mos

no, they should not, I believe gay people should not be allowed to adopt as it creates a sense of abnormality towards the child and it may make the child feel uncomfortable.

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…3mos

No, each child has the right to experience and be raised within a mother and father family structure. Gay couples should be allowed to adopt only when they are found to be more psychologically and financially fit to meet the child's needs over any interested straight couples
