Children Raised in the Intact Biological Family Fare Better by the Vast Majority of Objective Measures

'A

Notre Dame University has denied official recognition of a student group promoting policymaking that places primary emphasis on advocacy explicitly for the interests of children in considerations about so-called “Gay Marriage”. The quest for recognition by Students for Child-Oriented Policy (SCOP), was rejected in an April 30 letter from the university’s Student Activities Office.

In evaluating a proposal, approval is based on several things.…There was not a need for another similar-type club. The Club Coordination Council

SCOP’s Notre Dame Marriage Petition cites Pope Francis and the Catechism of the Catholic Church in support of the group’s quest to promote children’s interests as equally valid to the now-exclusive consideration given adults’ interests regarding so-called “Marriage Equity”.

“We reject the view that the young have agreed to redefine marriage. Rather, we think that they have not explored the meaning and importance of marriage.”

An opposing group, Students Against SCOP, asserts that SCOP makes “incorrect implications that same-sex parenting is damaging to children – this blatantly ignores all empirical data in this field of the social sciences.”

‘Gold standard’ study’s striking findings: children of heterosexual parents happier, healthier

Regnerus

The most scientifically credible studies show that children of heterosexual parents fare better on numerous indicators of personal well-being than children of homosexual parents. Authored by Mark Regnerus, a sociology professor at the University of Texas at Austin, the study was published in the July 2012 issue of Social Science Research.

Regnerus’ findings conflict with studies widely touted by homosexual activists which have claimed that children raised by homosexual parents fare as well or even better than their peers. Many of these studies, Regnerus points out, have relied on small, self-selected samples, parent rather than child reported outcomes, and have exhibited evidence of political bias.

Regnerus drew his data from the New Family Structures Study, a data collection project that drew from a large, random sample of American young adults. This study is one of the few that measures outcomes as reported by the children of homosexuals, rather than relying on an assessment by the homosexual parent.

Children from same-sex households much less likely to graduate high school: large study

Girls living in “gay” households are only 15 percent as likely to graduate compared to girls from opposite sex married homes.

A large-scale study by Douglas W. Allen, professor of economics at Simon Fraser University, has found that children in same-sex households were only 65 percent as likely to graduate from high school as those living in traditional opposite sex marriage families.cdcStudy

Wonder if his study made an NBC headline.

My wife and I have wondered about the mental problems these poor children will have while growing up and after they grow up.

Your reality dats answers our questions.
