Gay adoption

Final Project: Gay Adoption

Gay adoption is still not accepted, and it is even widely condemned in México. Adoption is a way for couples who are unable to procreate to have children, and it isalso a way to give children that don’t have parents a home and a family. Gay couples are unable to have children.

But if there’s a heterosexual couple that cannot have children because of infertility, they chose to adopt. Gay couples should be able to do thesame. They are two people who, like the heterosexual couple, really want a baby but cannot have one on their own, so they decide to give an orphan baby a chance to have a family. An injustice...
