NFL players have a risk of losing their spot if they come out as to being gay. “It appears that even rumours of homosexuality can affect a player’s career.”(NCwiseowl.com) There really isn’t much of a difference between a gay human and a straight human, they both have a heart that’s beating, they both have a life to live. The only difference is they have a different love life.
In conclusion, the augment for gay adoption is far stronger and far better supported than those opposed. One must admit that sexual orientation is fundamentally irrelevant to a person’s capacity to be a good parent. The opposition to gay and lesbian adoption has failed to support its

There are basically two types of adoption agencies: Public agencies that are usually supported by public funding and are run by the state and Private agencies that are licensed by the state, but run privately (Reference 99). Regardless of the type of agency, the state has some say in their operations, and if the state has a ban of gay adoptions, then the agencies will have to abide. In 1977, Florida passed a civil rights ordinance making sexual orientation discrimination illegal in Dade County. In response to the ordinance’s creation, a campaign themed “Save Our Children was created and led by the singer of the hit “Paper Roses” and former Miss Oklahoma beauty pageant winner, Anita Bryant. The campaign, whose members were mainly
Traditionally, a family has been considered to consist of a heterosexual couple and their children, but many forms of family life exist in contemporary society. Homosexual couples have become prominently accepted in modern history, appearing in many popular TV shows and even been inspirations for many hit songs.

Adoption can do many good things for people, which include giving gay couples the opportunity to parent, and

There are currently 107,011 kids in the U.S. foster care system that are hoping and waiting to be adopted, so just imagine how many of those children could be adopted if more lesbian and gay couples were able to adopt. According to lifelong adoption agencies more and more gay and lesbian couples are becoming parents through artificial insemination, a surrogate, or LGBT adoption. It’s hard for same sex couples to adopt because adoption agencies that have religious beliefs against same sex couples reject them, or a state law prohibits same sex parents. Same sex couples face much opposition from a large number of people even though they do not have well supported arguments for their beliefs. Many studies have been done in an attempt to figure
Gay parents are facing discrimination because of their sexual orientation. Twenty-two states currently allow single gays to adopt and 21 states currently allow gay and lesbian couples to adopt in the U.S. (Mallon, 2007, p. 6).

These morals they possess, may influence a child more than those morals taught to a child with heterosexual parents. All over the world, children suffer in families consisting of alcoholics, drug abusers, and sexual abusers (Powell, 2007, p.1). It is not possible that these environments are safer than what would be provided by homosexual

Within the past few years, homosexuality has become more widely accepted and integrated in today’s society. Strides have been made in order to grant same sex couples the same freedom that heterosexuals couples have. Recently, the Supreme Court granted same sex couples marriage equality. However, the issue of same sex adoption surfaces problems. The idea of same sex adoption is controversial within our society. Religious beliefs and personal preferences tend to steer individuals away from the idea of a homosexual couple adopting a baby. If asked, many people believe that adoption should be between a traditional family consisting of a man and a woman. Anything different is considered deviant and should not be allowed. Arguments such

Gaia Alberti Ms Mathers HN English III 13 November 2017 Gay Adoption "We believe that every child has the right to a loving, nurturing and permanent family, and that people from a variety of life experiences offer strengths for these children" (The Board of Directors of the National Adoption Center). Gay adoption by legal couples has become a rising controversy in the past decade, affecting the lives of many children and families. Around the world there are so many children that need to be adopted and thousand and thousand parents that want to undertake this experience, but they are not allowed because of the law in some countries. These parents have the right to adopt and have done nothing wrong and they have the same ability to grow children as straight couple; yet, they are not allowed to take care of a child that has been abandoned. Still, many people are against gay adoption because they think kids need a mother and a father to have proper male male and female role models. They also believe kids raised by a gay couple are more likely to become gay. This unconstitutional act exists because of prejudices and discrimination.

Gays and lesbians should be allowed to adopt because they can be just as good at parenting as straight couple. Many kids are still in orphanages waiting for homes, and children will have the opportunity
