This should have cautioned against such dogmatic conclusions. In these papers, researchers from secular American universities have raised questions over the accuracy of the often repeated claim that there are no differences in outcomes between children raised in same-sex parent households and those of intact biological families. In his study, Mark Regnerus, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Texas, used data from the New Family Structures Study, a large nationally representative sample of just under 3, young Americans aged 18 to 39, to compare how children raised in eight different family structures fared on 40 social, emotional, and relationship outcomes. According to his findings, children of mothers who have had same-sex relationships were significantly different as young adults on 25 of 40 outcome measures, compared with those who spent their entire childhood with both their married, biological parents.
The prevailing professional opinion is that a parent's sexual orientation has nothing to do with his or her ability to be a good parent. The nation's leading child welfare, psychological and children's health organizations also have issued policy or position statements declaring that a parent's sexual orientation is irrelevant to his or her ability to raise a child. Many also have condemned discrimination based on sexual orientation in adoption, custody and other parenting situations and called for equal rights for all parents and children. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry approved the following statement in support of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer parenting in There is no evidence to suggest or support that parents who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender are per se superior or inferior from or deficient in parenting skills, child-centered concerns, and parent-child attachments when compared with heterosexual parents.
A very large body of social science research going back decades has documented the vital and unique role of mothers and of fathers in childhood development. These studies have also demonstrated the negative psychological, educational, and social effects on children who have been deprived of growing up in a home with both biological parents who are married to each other. A very brief summary of findings on the mothers' unique and crucial role in childhood development would include these points:. Clinical experience would suggest that motherlessness, while not studied as extensively as fatherlessness, causes even greater damage to a child, because the role of the mother is so crucial in establishing a child's ability to trust and to feel safe in relationships.
