Policy Statements from Mainstream Organizations Supporting Lesbian and Gay Adoption
 

There is an overwhelming consensus among leading health organizations confirming that the children of gay and lesbian parents are not in any danger due to the sexual orientation of gay and lesbian parents. This consensus is the result of years of research as stated in the public policies of the following groups:

American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

American Academy of Family Physicians

American Academy of Pediatrics

American Bar Association

American Medical Association

American Psychiatric Association

American Psychoanalytic Association

American Psychological Association

Child Welfare League of America

National Association of Social Workers

North American Council on Adoptable Children
