DO THE LAWS REALLY LOOK OUT FOR CHILDREN, OR DO LAW MAKERS WANT TO PUNISH A GROUP THAT IS DISLIKED?

A MIAMI APPEALS COURT WILL HELP DECIDE THE FATE OF FLORIDAS BAN ON GAY ADOPTION. IN THE STATE OF FLA GAYS ARE ALOWED TO FOSTER, AND SOMETIMES THEY KEEP THOSE KIDS INDEFINITELY, BUT THEY ARE NOT ALOWED TO ADOPT, DOES THAT MAKE SENNSE??

  • So many children need homes. And a gay couple would do just as good job as a straight couple. I hope that sometime in the near future homosexual will have the same rights as heterosexuals. Legal commitments and adoptions should be a RIGHT for any person.

  • no, it doesnn't make sense. If the couple is good enough to foster they should be good enough to adopt.

    Gay people are above all else, PEOPLE! If they can provide a positive and loving home for a foster child and that is their wish, why shouldn't they be allowed?

  • Makes no sense. Gay couples should be allowed to adopt, especially if they are allowed to foster kids. Kids need loving, supportive parents. Gays can and do have biological children, this law is discriminatory and wrong.

  • ANON 8:06, IF THEY ARE LOOKING FOR THE CHILDREN BEST INTEREST AND THEY DON'T BELEIVE THAT GAY COUPLES ARE GOOD PARENT ROLES, WHY LET THEM FOSTER FOR YEARS, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

  • Annon 806 ; So, if a child was in foster care or an orphanage its entire life that would be in the "better interest" of the child? To spend their entire life without the security of 2 PEOPLE, regardless of the sexes, who loves them unconditionally? Im not sure how thats in the better interest of the child, denied rights to be loved and cared for by PEOPLE who want them and want to care for them and give them security and love.....that makes about no sense at all. They should be allowed to adopt by the way, at least in my mind. It should be about taking care of the children, and if they have fostered them all that time, then they should get the same option to adopt as any other couple would.

  • They shouldn't let them foster but they placed that law just to pacify them. But nooooo now they want to take that a little further in wanting to adopt. If they want to love the child they can love the child without that peice of paper of adoption.  Love is Love. 


    Older go fight to make the law change there is your CAUSE.

  • ANON 8:27, IT IS BEING FOUGHT! THE CASE IN NOW IN THE HANDS OF AN APPEAL COURT. IF THE LAW IS PLACED TO PACIFY THEM WHERE IS THE BEST INTEREST FOR THE CHILD WHEN THESE FOSTER PARENTS IN QUESTION HAVE HAD THESE TWO CHILDREN FOR 5 YEARS BONDED WITH THEM, AND THE COUPLE WANTS TO ADOPT BUT CAN'T. HOW IS THIS JUST OR RIGHT FOR THOSE KIDS IN QUESTION, THROWN AROUND FOR YEARS FROM FOSTER HOME TO FOSTER HOME FINALLY BONDING WITH THEM AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS, ONLY TO BE TAKEN AWAY. THEY HAVE LOVED THOSE KIDS WITHOUT THAT PIECE OF PAPER FOR YEARS NOW, THEY RUN THE RISK OF THE STATE TEARING THE FAMILY APART AND THE HEART OF THOSE KIDS, THIS IS WHY THEY WANT TO ADOPT, TO MAKE IT LEGAL AND FINAL, SO THIS FAMILY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE TORN APART.
