The largest pediatricians group in the USA has updated its policy statement to say “civil marriage for same-sex couple – as well as full adoption and foster care rights… regardless of sexual orientation – is the best way to ensure legal and financial security for children in these families.”
“Children thrive in families that are stable and that provide permanent security, and the way we do that is through marriage,” said Benjamin Siegel, co-author of the American Academy of Pediatrics policy statement.” As usual the group claims that there should be “equal opportunity for every couple to access economic stability and federal supports provided to married couples to raise children.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics has 60,000 members. Their report adds recommendations supporting same-sex marriage, adoption, foster care placement, and other benefits for homosexual couples. The Academy says that there is no cause-and-effect relationship between parents’ sexual orientation and children’s well-being.
Other medical and health groups have also said they support “marriage equality.” They include the American Psychological Association; the American Psychiatric Association, the American Academy of Family Physicians.
The statement names other national medical and health groups that have said they support marriage equality, including the American Psychological Association; the American Psychiatric Association and the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the statement says that the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the America College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Medical Association all support gay and lesbian parenting.
Perhaps the people of Sodom in Lot’s day justified the same things on the basis of equality. The whole city was declared wicked by the God of heaven, who destroyed it by fire and brimstone. See Luke 17:28-30
