  • YES!!!! I do not see any reason why gay men or women can not raise children. they have just as much right to raise a child as anyone else.

  • as opposed to a foster home? as opposed to parents who are abusive, drunk, on drugs and general jack-asses? If a gay man is loving, has the means and capability to raise a child (children) why on earth would it not be a good thing? Who the heck cares?

  • I think that a child having two dads is way better than them not having any parents at all.

  • Very few babies have been "accidentally" conceived by gay couples. Just sayin'.
    The gay couples that want kids are often great parents. Certainly not all, but you can say that about any population. It makes me sad that there are states that won't allow gay couples to adopt, or won't recognize the partner as a legal parent.

  • Sexual preference has nothing to do with being a good parent.

  • My cousin had surrogate twins for a gay couple. They're great parent's! They give those children everything they have to give.

  • All sorts of people reproduce. Gay and straight. All sorts of people adopt, foster, and care for children. We don't randomly make laws saying morons or people with freckles or people with multiple DUIs or deaf people etc can't parent. So why make laws against gay men?

  • Being straight doesn't automatically mean you are or would be a great parent.
