According to the society a family consists of a father, a mother and kids. This is the model that the people have been adopting for years. In this time, people with radical minds want to change this concept because it is wrong. The Free Dictionary defines family as, “A fundamental social group in society typically consisting of one or two parents and their children”. This tells us that to be considered a family, you need to have kids. In a heterosexual family with adopted kids, those kids legally belong to this family, so they are like a biological son. This is also called a family, but what about a homosexual family?
In this society, the homosexual family is seen wrong. In many states, a same sex couple can’t get married, and in some of those states where gay marriage is legal, adoption for gay couples is illegal. This is a total contradiction because if you allow a gay couple to get married, why can’t they have kids? I consider that those states don’t see a gay couple as a family. The problem is that the government sees a gay family as being wrong.
Based on Genesis, religion says that this is wrong. They use many Bible verses to argue that the homosexual family is not a family. Genesis 1:27 says: “So, God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them”. This Bible verse shows us that God created man and women. This is the example of the family we have now. The Bible says also that homosexuality is a sin, but this is another topic for another time.
Many studies show that kids raised by a homosexual family have a higher self-esteem and are more social than kids raised by a heterosexual family. Those kids are also kinder and friendlier, making them less likely to bully. The argument that opponents of gay adoption have kids with bad mental health is wrong based on the studies.
The “gay families” adopt kids who were given up by their heterosexual birth parents. This is not the only way homosexuals adopt kids, but this is, in my opinion, the easiest way to do it. It’s not a secret that to procreation requires a man and a woman. That means that when a homosexual family wants to adopt, in the past, those kids belonged to a heterosexual family. My argument for those who are against gay adoption is: Why can’t these children be adopted by loving homes that happen to consist of homosexual parents? There are many kids in fosters home right now.
Nowadays, more and more kids are given up by their birth parents. According to childrensright.org, “there are approximately 402,000 children in foster care in the United States.” What’s even more alarming is that they also say, “In 2013, over 640,000 children spent time in U.S foster care”. It is possible for these statistics to decrease if we let homosexuals adopt. We need to put aside any discrimination or homophobia.
There are many benefits for kids and homosexual families if they are able to adopt. If we make it possible, more kids would be in a loving family and less kids would be in foster care. Also, homosexual families would be completed because many of them wants to have kids. We need to make the difference and make the world equal for all.
