It is just ridiculous. And disgusting. All the hollering about how abortion is murder....have the baby and give it up for adoption. Well, if they keep legislating who can and can't adopt, where are all of these children going to go?

It should be one or the other. If Abortion is outlawed, then adoption standards should become much more lax and birth control and sex ed should be easily availible.

I wish this society would understand that homosexuals are not bad people. They just live a different lifestyle than straight people. That's it!

You seem to suggest we should be allowing the abnormal to become normal. That line of thinking leads to social decay and eventually anarchy and chaos.

I try to avoid going into the lion's den on issues like this but since no one thus far has presented an opposing view to the topic at had, I will.
I agree with the ban. I will state my opinion first. I consider homosexuality abnormal. I don't think it is something that should be encouraged, or considered normal to hetero relationships anymore than other sexual preference abnormalities should be. I think that to allow children into homosexual homes voluntarily promotes acceptance and normalizes that lifestyle and behavior for the next generation.
