Free text Beginning with the story of Florida’s gay adoption ban, this book broadens to cover the national landscape on gay parenting. The authors describe the consensus among some child welfare experts that restricting gay parenting is bad for kids, summarizes the scientific studies confirming that the children of lesbians and gay men could be are as happy and well adjusted as anyone, and explains why limits on gay parenting violate the US Constitution. The book also provides a point-by-point refutation of the arguments for keeping gay people from being parents.(adapted from editor's abstract)
