Catholic Medical Association [not Sister Carol Keehan's Catholic Health Association] says male-female marriage important to children’s welfare
CWN – October 01, 2012
The Catholic Medical Association (CMA) has adopted a resolution calling upon American political leaders to protect marriage, citing “the best available published scientific evidence” that shows children are best raised in a household headed by one man and one woman.
The CMA resolution, adopted at a meeting September 28, said that “marriage between one man and one woman in a stable relationship is the optimal situation for the healthy development of children.” It is unjust, the resolution said, when “children are deliberately deprived” of their best chance for healthy development by state laws giving legal recognition to same-sex unions and allowing homosexual couples to adopt children.
The CMA calls for state and federal governments to protect children by affirming male-female marriage.
