A court case ruling in mid-1997-DEC compels the State of New Jersey to allow gay couples to jointly adopt children who are trapped in their foster care system. .
There are about 100,000 children in US foster care systems, but only 20,000 are adopted annually. There is obviously a lack of adopting homes for the children who are available. Most states allow unmarried individuals to adopt, 22 states allow single gays and lesbians to adopt. Some states allow unmarried couples (gay, lesbian, and mixed-sex) to double adopt. This has the child adopted by one spouse and later adopted by the other.
Gay couples should be in no way allowed to adopt children. There are several reasons why gay couples should not be able to adopt children. People look at this question from the wrong standpoint, instead of looking at what is better for the child they try to accommodate those who live an alternative life style. The child should be the most important factor in the adoption process. If God intended for homosexual couples to have and raise children he would have made it possible naturally. .
There are some cases that heterosexual couples adopt because they are unable to have children, but the difference here is that most heterosexual couples can naturally have children, while on the other hand no homosexual couples can naturally produce children. .
Homosexuality is morally degrading to a society, and for our society to condone homosexual relationships by allowing them to adopt children would hurt our society's morals, and be unfair to the child. A child growing up with homosexual parents would not have all the advantages that a child growing up with heterosexual parents would. .
A child is better off having a mother and a father, and it would be confusing to a child if he had two mothers or two fathers. The child's parents would influence the child's perception of normal and natural relationships. A child tends to imitate its parents this means a child that is raised by homosexual parents is more likely to be homosexual than those who are raised by heterosexual parents.
