Gay and lesbian right of adoption

Joint adoption by same-sex couples is legal in twenty-seven countries as well as several subnational jurisdictions and dependent territories. Furthermore, some form of step-child adoption is legal for same-sex couples in five countries. Given that constitutions and statutes usually do not address the adoption rights of LGBT persons, judicial decisions often determine whether they can serve as parents either individually or as couples. The existing body of research on outcomes for children with LGBT parents includes limited studies that consider the specific case of adoption.

Critics of the law , which also applies to private agencies working in foster care, said it was unconstitutional and harmful to children. Supporters said it would ultimately help children by protecting the agencies that work to place them. Fallin, a Republican, said in a statement on Friday that the law did not ban same-sex adoption or foster care in Oklahoma.

LGBT adoption in the United States

Prior to several rulings by the Supreme Court of the United States, adoption laws varied widely by state. Some states granted full adoption rights to same-sex couples, while others banned it entirely or only allowed the partner in a same-sex relationship to adopt the biological child of the other partner. On March 31, , a Federal District Court struck down Mississippi's ban on same-sex couples from adoption. On June 26, , the Supreme Court reversed an Arkansas Supreme Court ruling and ordered all states to treat same-sex couples equally to opposite-sex couples in the issuance of birth certificates.

Since then, the number of children adopted by lesbian, gay, bi or trans parents has grown year on year. CoramBAAF research showed that while most heterosexual couples expected to become parents as a matter of course, this was less frequently the case for same-sex couples. This was particularly true of gay dads, many of whom thought their sexual identity was incompatible with parenthood — despite having always felt paternal. Fears that children adopted by same-sex couples would face bullying or that their own gender identities might be affected are largely unfounded.
