Today, many homosexual couples love children, therefore, they wish to have children either through the adoption process or via pregnancy just like heterosexual couples. Gay males can have a women friend carry the child for them and gay women can get a male friend of theirs to provide the sperm needed to create the baby. However, today there is still much debate over the issue of homosexuals and adoption. This is probably due to the fact that today the issue of homosexuality, in general is still a very ‘hot button’ for many people. There are two sides to the issue of whether homosexuals should be able to adopt children. Those people who think that homosexuals should be able to adopt children also believe that some new adoption legislation should be enacted into law. Those people who believe that homosexuals shouldn’t be allowed to adopt children also believe that there should be no new adoption legislation enacted into law. At this point, we might wish to ask ourselves, “What is the big deal about homosexuals adopting children.”
The issue surrounding homosexuals and adoption probably centers on some people’s obsession and fascination with sex and sexuality. In fact, many people enjoy talking and joking about sex and sexuality. In addition, many professionals write and talk about sex and sexuality on a daily basis. Plus, some people like to debate about people’s sexuality as the measure of their readiness and moral fortitude to engage in many activities that other people take for granted. There have been large debates concerning whether homosexuals are socially and morally fit to adopt children. This might be because some people think that homosexuals are deviant members of society. However, if people would take the time to examine homosexuality and homosexual behavior, they might come to realize that there is no such thing as thing as homosexual behavior apart from heterosexual behavior. In other words, there is only human behavior and sexual orientation has really nothing to do with people’s behavior. In short, homosexuals are socially and morally able to adopt children of all ages. Therefore, we need to look for need adoption legislation in regards to homosexuals.
