Doctors Against Prop 8

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

The California chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics is opposing Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that seeks to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry. Here's their reasoning:
The physical growth, development, social and mental well-being of all children is supported by allowing parents a full range of parental legal rights, such as Social Security survivor benefits, health benefits for dependent children, and legally recognized consent for education and medical decisions. In order to protect and promote the best interests of the child, the AAP-CA supports equal access for all California children to the legal, financial and emotional protections of civil marriage for their parents, without discrimination based on family structure.
So much for the Yes on 8 campaign's "do it for the kids" argument.
