As Republicans and conservatives, we recognize the importance of the family and maintaining strong family values – but those values include our families too. With the knowledge that the American foster care and adoption systems are inundated with more children than there are willing families, we find it abhorrent that several states have attempted to make it illegal for LGBT couples to adopt or foster children. LGBT couples make parents as qualified and loving as straight families, because of this we support:
- Legal protections ensuring that LGBT couples may adopt or provide foster care in any program sponsored by federal, state, and local governments.
- Legal protections ensuring that governments do not discriminate against adoption or foster care services that include LGBT couples.
For both equality and opportunities for children to have a better life, Log Cabin Republicans supports legislation to include our families in the Republican party.
