Every Child Deserves [the kind of] Family [that fits Janice Crouse's] Act

by Jeremy Hooper

U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is introducing the Every Child Deserves a Family Act, a measure that would remove sexual orientation, gender identity, and marital status as barriers between prospective adoptive or foster parents and the countless children who need a loving home. Or in Concerned Women For America's Janice Crouse's eyes: An experiment that would ruin kids' lives:

"Something around 65,000 adopted children and 14,000 foster children live in homes that are headed by non-heterosexuals, and yet the data very overwhelmingly says these homes are not as good for children," Crouse notes. "They don't even come close to being as good for children as a married couple -- mom and dad -- family."

"That agenda is being advanced at the expense of our children and at the expense of the future of our country," the CWA spokesperson laments. "When you have children who are being used as guinea pigs like this, it's totally unwarranted
."

And by "our country," Crouse of course means the country of heterosexist, "pro-family" conservatives. Those of us who understand that LGBT people are part of the world may pay taxes and contribute in immeasurable ways, but those are not the dues that make for a "real American" in the minds of folks like Crouse. For that crowd, America means subscribing to the "values" of a self-appointed vocal few, even it comes at the expense of the birth-appointed us.
