Hungary Bans Gay Couples From Adopting Children

The Hungarian government has passed a law that bans gay couples from adopting children who need a loving home…

Read on for all the details.

And recently, Hungary has sparked global outrage after they passed a bill that prohibits gay people from adopting children from the foster care system.

But the most horrific part of it all is the fact that the justice minister of the country decided to back it up with some more ignorant comments.

All children need is a loving home.

With many children being thrown from home to home throughout their childhoods.

On any given day, there are nearly 443,000 children in foster care in the United States.

And the children suffer as a result. And, more often than not, children don’t even get a real foster home, they are, instead, sent to live in institutions or group homes.

And, as a result, they can sometimes experience very little stability while growing up.

Languishing in foster care harms children’s wellbeing in a number of ways. The longer a child remains in temporary care, the more likely it is that he or she will experience multiple placement changes and disrupted relationships caused by such changes.

The foster system is anything but short-term.

And some never end up getting adopted.

Well, the Hungarian government has decided that adoption can only occur between a “husband a wife.”

Of course, the announcement was met by outrage.

Another amendment also approved defines family as “based on marriage and the parent-child relation. The mother is a woman, the father a man.”

But adoption was possible if 1 partner applies on their own. However, all hope of that has now been removed too.

“The main rule is that only married couples can adopt a child, that is, a man and a woman who are married.”

“Hungary defends the right of children to identify with their birth gender and ensures their upbringing based on our nation’s constitutional identity and values based on our Christian culture,” it says.

If it sounds like fascism to you, it is. Love is love and no one should be denied the right to be who they are. Let’s hope they decide to overturn such a controversial law.
