More lies form another Roman Catholic Group: there’s no evidence children adopted by Straight families do better than kids adopted by gay or lesbian families.
A new Butler County Children Services policy gives traditional couples preference over single parents or same-sex couples in fostering or adopting children.
The policy, adopted Dec. 8, states, “The purpose of adoption is not to provide children for adults who want them, but to provide for children families that give them the experience of intact married family life as much as possible.”
Children Services Director Michael Fox said they adopted the policy when he learned they didn’t have one in the midst of an effort by two gay men to adopt a 2-year-old child.
Fox said the policy’s goal is not to discriminate, but to give children the best chance at succeeding.
“Data-wise, and there’s tons of it, kids do better…when there is a traditional married couple,” Fox said.
