NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
In reference to a letter to the editor March 25, the writer, Tim Erson, states that children “are not ‘wired’ to having two parents who are of the same gender.”
He also wrote, “What a blessing it is when a child has the nurture and love of a mother and a father.”
March 20, the American Academy of Pediatrics published this:
The American Academy of Pediatrics’ new policy, published online Thursday, cites research showing that the parents’ sexual orientation has no effect on a child’s development. Kids fare just as well in gay or straight families when they are nurturing and financially and emotionally stable, the academy said.
The academy believes that a two-parent marriage is best equipped to provide that kind of environment. Their policy says that if a child has two gay parents who choose to marry, “it is in the best interests of their children that legal and social institutions allow and support them to do so.”
David Frum, conservative columnist and contributor to CNN and cnn.com (March 26) writes: Nearly half of American children, 48 percent, are now born to unmarried women. Among women without college degrees, and of all races, unwed motherhood has become the norm.
Are children “wired” to having only a mother? Many of these women work and use day care (usually run by women.) Are these children “wired” to being raised only by women?
Erson also negates mentioning any influence divorce has upon children of opposite gender marriages. Why is that? Are children “wired” to deal with divorce?
I propose that Erson update his data with substantive facts.
