Same-Sex Marriage: Not Best for Children

While the debate over the legitimacy of same-sex marriage can be viewed from many perspectives, there should be little debate about the effects it has upon children: Same-sex marriage deliberately deprives the child of a mother or a father, and is therefore harmful.  The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) has sought to defend the child’s position in this debate from an objective, scientific standpoint.  Below you will find convincing evidence of the fundamental value of the married, father-mother family unit to the optimal development of the child.
