LGBT adoption is the adoption of children by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons. This may be in the form of a joint adoption by a same-sex couple, adoption by one partner of a same-sex couple of the other's biological child (step-child adoption) and adoption by a single LGBT person. Joint adoption by same-sex couples is legal in 25 countries. Opponents of LGBT adoption question whether same-sex couples have the ability to be adequate parents while other opponents question whether natural law implies that children of adoption possess a natural right to be raised by heterosexual parents. Since constitutions and statutes usually fail to address the adoption rights of LGBT persons, judicial decisions often determine whether they can serve as parents either individually or as couples.
I believe gays are people and God says to love all people. If they are able to care for the child in a better manner than the child's biological parents, then I say it would be good for the child to have someone who will love them.
No, adoption is not a right; it is a privilege
bro literally what.. LOL
i dont support gays so no ig
Yes, however adoption agencies should prioritize heterosexual families over homosexual families.

No, and I believe a mother and father family structure is best for the child
A Mother and Mother family structure can be just as good for a child as a Mother and Father family structure. Theres no difference between the two structures except for what the parents have in their pants.
Exactly. People make excuses as to why this doesn't make sense or would "turn the kids gay" or "not be healthy" or isn't "normal", bu that's all nonsense. The thing that matters for being parents is your love for your child--not your gender and the gender of your partner.
Yes. To be honest, gay couples could offer a better home. It seems that lgbtqia+ people are nicer and more kind. And 2 gay people raising a child causes less homophobia in the next generation, so we can move forward and be more loving. A lot of homes are unstable, causing children to go into the foster system. But if that child got to be raised by two loving parents, no matter their sexual orientation, that’s all that matters.
Yes, as long as they pass their background check/any other requirements they should be able to. I don't think that we should worsen overcrowding in the system because we aren't letting certain people care for child, just because of who they like. This being said I think it should be suggested for all couples (gay or straight) that they join a group of adopting parents or parents that have already adopted, so that they can discuss the struggles of raising an adopted child (while being gay or straight).
I believe a mother and father family structure is best for the child but in cases of DCS Overcrowding would I support same-sex couples being able to adopt only after completing the same background check as straight couples.
