Gay marriage and adoption is widely opposed all over the globe. C, many still oppress those inside of the community. Since the stonewall riots in , the gay rights movement has been a slow progression for equal rights and social acceptance. Adoption for same sex couples is a very controversial topic in Family Law, and often same sex couples face many unique issues if they wish to adopt. Many states have different laws that apply for gay and lesbian adoption, as opposed to heterosexual couples. Several states also have special rules that apply when a child is born into a gay or lesbian partnership.
LGBT rights in the Republic of Ireland
The Supreme Court is threatening LGBTQ adoption and families like ours.
A federal judge ruled Thursday that Mississippi's ban on same-sex couples adopting children is unconstitutional, making gay adoption legal in all 50 states. District Judge Daniel Jordan issued a preliminary injunction against the ban, citing the Supreme Court's decision legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide last summer. The injunction blocks Mississippi from enforcing its year-old anti-gay adoption law. The Supreme Court ruling "foreclosed litigation over laws interfering with the right to marry and rights and responsibilities intertwined with marriage," Jordan wrote. The challenge to Mississippi's law was filed last year by four same-sex couples, who were joined by the Campaign for Southern Equality and the Family Equality Council.
Magistrate’s sacking over gay adoption views was ‘inevitable’, says CoA
Unfortunately, the history of same-sex adoption is rather brief — but not for lack of interest or desire to adopt by hopeful LGBT parents. History has not treated LGBT individuals kindly and, therefore, their ability to adopt — and even get married — is a very recent development. In fact, most of the important moments in the history of gay adoption have only happened in the last 40 years. Before the s and s when the gay rights movement really began to take hold , homosexuality was something that was rarely discussed and even illegal in some places. Therefore, it was near impossible for LGBT parents to adopt or even raise children without great difficulty.
Question: "What does the Bible have to say about gay adoption? Some people support the idea of gay adoption by pointing to the needs of children on adoption waiting lists—having gay parents is better than having no parents at all, they reason. Are we saying that adoption should be restricted to stable nuclear families? Absolutely not. The Bible does not directly address the issue of who should be allowed to adopt.
