There is no specific reason that shouldn't allow homosexual people, specifically, to
start and raise a family. Raising children and starting a family is something that most
people look forward to in life. Who has the right to take that privilege away from
someone? That's not okay. If you take away the right to raise children from an entire
group of people and name all of them incapable, that is prejudice, discrimination, and
has no place in our democratic society. Also, I hear the argument, "If gay parents
raise kids, won't their kids also end up gay?" That argument makes no sense. With
that logic, all straight parents raised straight kids, and if that were true, nobody
would even be discussing this right now.
Thank You. Any
