Can gay marriage end abortion?

Filed under: Adoption, Gay Parenting

In a provocative post at Democracy Forum: Americana, Paramendra Bhagat feels that anti-abortion activists should -- by the very definition of their cause -- be for gay marriage. Bhagat feels that by allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry, we will create a higher number of stable households that -- in lieu of biological children -- are likely to adopt, therefore leading to fewer abortions.

He also advocates a change in terminology -- calling for the re-labeling of anti-gay marriage activists as being "anti-adoption."

More power to ya Paramendra! The more kids that spend their childhoods with caring parents instead of in orphanages, the better. And while, admittedly, I'm pro-choice, and I'm not quite sure the abortion rate would drop just because there were more families willing to adopt, this certainly seems like a step in the right direction.
