The crackpot American College of Pediatrics, a fake organization hastily assembled by hate groups a couple of years ago, is attacking yesterday’s statement by the real professional association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, which has 60,000 members.
The College does not support the alteration of this time-honored and proven standard to conform to pressures from “politically correct” groups. No one concerned with the well-being of children can reasonably ignore the evidence for maintaining the current standard, nor can they or we ignore the equally strong evidence that harm to children can result if the current standards are rejected,” says Den Trumbull, MD, President of the American College of Pediatricians. “The AAP ignores generations of evidence of health risks to children in advocating for the legality and legitimacy of same-sex marriage and child-rearing.
Family Research Council vice president Peter Sprigg:
This is a highly misleading claim, especially in light of the research published last year by University of Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus—the most methodologically-sound research on the subject ever done, using a large and representative population-based sample—which showed children whose parents had a homosexual relationship suffered numerous disadvantages compared with children raised by their married, biological mother and father.
As everybody knows, including Peter Sprigg, the Regnerus study has been thoroughly debunked. (Tipped by JMG reader Bernie)
