How do you feel about gay people adopting babies?

Would you give your baby to a gay couple to adopt? With so few babies out there to adopt and so many couples that would love to adopt, do you think it's fair if a gay couple gets the baby over a heterosexual couple?

  • I wouldn't give my baby to anyone to adopt, but I have nothing against gay couples raising children. I'm pretty sure a lot of them are better parents than a lot of heterosexual couples.

  • If I was giving up a child for adoption I dont see a problem with a gay couple adopting them. Just because they are gay dosnt mean that they wont be great parents. And yes it would be fair if a gay couple gets the baby over a hetrosexual couple. Its about who would take the best care of the child not who they are attracted to.

  • i can think of so many things wrong with this. first off the hetero couple is always chosen over the gay couple which i believe is wrong. gay people have all the right in the world to adopt. i'm sick of people thinking that homosexuality can be caught or taught. there are so many loving homosexual couples that would make great parents and they deserve to adopt

  • Personally I don't think the gender of the parents (2 moms, 2 dads, a mom and dad) should be an issue. What is important and what should be the issues are would the child be raised in a loving home, would the parents be able to provide for the child, would they be good parents?

  • *IF* I were going to give a child up for adoption, the sexual orientation of the family I choose to give the baby too has nothing to do with it.

  • I hope that in my lifetime people will stop asking these kinds of questions. I don't care if the couple is gay, pink, purple or green... loving and caring for the child is the important part.

  • Are they going to love the child? Are they going to protect the child from harm? Are they going to give the child everything they need to have a long healthy happy life? If so, then they are already 10 steps ahead of the parents who gave the child up in the first place... Homosexual couples have just as much right to have children and families as anyone else does!

  • Well I am not going to personally be putting any of my children up for adoption, but I see no problem in gays adopting children. There are TOO many children in the system in the United States. All I care about is if they can provide a safe, loving home.. I don't care about the sexual orientation.
