Same-Sex Marriage: Detrimental to Children
Contact: Michelle Cretella, MD, American College of Pediatricians, 352-376-1877 

GAINESVILLE, Fla., April 29, 2015 /Standard Newswire/ -- The American College of Pediatricians urges the Supreme Court of the United States to consider the well-being of children in the case before them this week to legalize same-sex marriage. While the debate over the legitimacy of same-sex marriage can be viewed from many perspectives, there should be little debate about the effects it has upon children: Same-sex marriage deliberately deprives the child of a mother or a father, and is therefore detrimental. The College advocates for children in this debate from an objective position grounded in scientific evidence.

President, Michelle Cretella, notes "The court must understand the gravity of their decision in its impact upon children around the world. Every child needs a mother and a father. Same-sex marriage directly disenfranchises children of this right."

There is unequivocal evidence of the fundamental value of the married, father-mother family unit to the optimal development of the child. For more visit Best4Children.org.
