The Religious Wrong: Think of the Children

Apparently Matt Barber prefers these children being denied both instead of being "denied" one or the other. The fact of the matter is that there are not enough opposite-sex couples out there who are willing and able to take in all of the children in this country that need to be adopted. If same-sex couples are not allowed to legally adopt, many would not be adopted at all. They would not only be denied parents, they would be denied extended family and they would be denied the safety net that comes with all of that which so many of the rest of us take for granted on a daily basis. There are same-sex couples (as well as potential single parents) who are willing and able to adopt, and they should be allowed to do so.

The only thing that is tragic about this is that people like Barber are fighting against adoption rights, and it's the children who suffer.
