Children Need Mum and Dad

1 comments | 2:00 pm | top |
The Supreme Court in the State of Iowa in the US has recently passed into law an act allowing for homosexual marriage. The Court's review of the law blatantly ignored concerns regarding the implications for children brought up by two "parents" in a same-sex marriage, relegating the issue to a footnote, saying:

“The research appears to strongly support the conclusion that same-sex couples foster the same wholesome environment as opposite-sex couples and suggests that the traditional notion that children need a mother and a father to be raised into healthy, well-adjusted adults is based more on stereotype than anything else.”

Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., writing for responded,

The court offers no citations to any evidence in support of this remarkable claim. If we took that statement out of the context of the same-sex “marriage” debate and applied it generally throughout society, we would create enormous problems. But put that point to one side for now. Just realize that the Supreme Court of Iowa did not do the public the courtesy of citing a single source in support of this claim...

...The debate over marriage hinges in large part on what people think is the subject: Advocates of genderless marriage believe it is about fairness and equality. Advocates of conjugal marriage believe it is about the role of marriage. By dismissing testimony so obviously germane to the functions of marriage in society, the Iowa courts prejudged the case and tacitly declared equality to be the only issue.

What an utterly ridiculous, amateur and unfounded assertion for the Supreme Court to be making; that in terms of raising children, "same-sex couples foster the same wholesome environment as opposite-sex couples". It is empirically evident that two homosexual adults are less able unable to provide children with the stability and security that is essential for every child as he or she grows up.
