I agree. Gay people will have kids if they want to. Statistics show that they also adopt - and they adopt "difficult to adopt" kids in greater
numbers than straight people do, which is something our society needs.
Why Gay Parents May be the Best Parents
An October 2011 report by Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute found that, of gay and lesbian adoptions at more than 300 agencies, 10 percent of the
kids placed were older than 6 — typically a very difficult age to adopt out. About 25 percent were older than 3. Sixty percent of gay and lesbian
couples adopted across races, which is important given that minority children in the foster system tend to linger. More than half of the kids adopted
by gays and lesbians had special needs.
I don't have a problem with a little population reduction, myself. While this earth could house more people by land area, the resources consumed by
developed nations are limited, and if the population continues to increase, the results are inevitable.
I happen to think the lowering fertility rates and people making the CHOICE to be childless are nature's way of lowering the population to a more
sustainable level. I don't think the UN has ANYTHING to do with it. It's nature, coupled with the effects that having such a large and industrial
population have on the planet.
Childless by Choice
According to 2010 U.S. Census data, the number of childless people age 40 to 44 is close to 20 percent — compared with 10 percent in 1979.
Just my thoughts on global population as regards gay people.
