The importance recognizing gay rights in regards to parenting cannot be under stated. There are foster children that deserve loving homes and potential LGBT parents that have the love and resources to provide those children homes. Also, many custody issues arise when LGBT non-biological parents aren’t given legal parental status. These issues cost taxpayers’ money and emotionally strain parents, potential guardians and children.
Champions of inequality try to convince the public that LGBT people are not suited for parenthood. They disregard a lot of research instead perpetuating myths that are too wide spread and causing children to go without loving adults in their lives.
So let’s end the confusion. LGBT parents are needed and the arguments against them need to be put to bed. The following myths have no barring and should never be used in court cases or legislation regarding parental rights of LGBT people.
