AAP Endorsing Gay Marriage!
Thu, 03-21-2013 - 2:54pm

The American Academy of Pediatrics has endorsed gay marriage: 

Kids fare just as well in gay or straight families when they are nurturing and financially and emotionally stable, the academy says.

The academy believes that a two-parent marriage is best equipped to provide that kind of environment. Their policy says that if a child has two gay parents who choose to marry, "it is in the best interests of their children that legal and social institutions allow and support them to do so."

They wanted their stance known before the US Supreme Court hears two gay marriage cases next week.  I'm glad that they came out with this endorsement, all that matters is that kids are being raised in good, loving homes.  

How do you feel about this?
