Same-Sex Unions Endanger Children

The journal Pediatrics reported in 2002 that “Children residing in households with non-biological adults were 8 times more likely to die of maltreatment than children in households with 2 biological parents.  Risk of maltreatment death was elevated for children residing with step, foster, or adoptive parents.”  We must recognize that all children living in same-sex homes are living with a non-biological parent and this will, according to research, increase the potential for serious abuse, neglect and death.

Research published in the journal Child Abuse and Neglect found that a girl is seven times more likely to be molested by a stepfather than a biological father.
