In North Carolina, the ACLU is pushing back against the state’s recent vote to pass a Constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage by arguing in federal court against the rights of children to a mom and a dad. Children, to the “gay rights” community, are property that people have a “right” to rather than human beings who themselves have rights. Thank Roe v. Wade for establishing that children in the womb are property. Thank the “gay rights” movement for working toward ensuring that born children are also property. Thank the ACLU for being there in federal court at every opportunity to argue against the rights of children. Mind you, this is also a religious freedom issue.
ACLU legal director Chris Brook said North Carolina’s highest court in 2010 banned second parent adoptions for unmarried couples, whether straight or gay. That ruling prevents those couples from jointly adopting children.
But the ACLU lawsuit focused on same-sex couples.
It said second parent adoptions are the only way a North Carolina family with gay or lesbian parents can ensure that both parents have a legal relationship with their child.
“Children who are prevented from having such a legally recognized relationship with both parents suffer numerous deprivations as a result, including exclusion from private health insurance benefits, public health benefits, veterans’ benefits, disability benefits and social security benefits,” the lawsuit said.
