- Debate: Gay adoption - pro argument.
"Affidavit - United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts" Michael Lamb, Ph.D. 2009: "Nontraditional families constitute the vast majority of families in the United States today. Society’s early assumptions about the superiority of the traditional family form have been challenged by the results of empirical research. Since the end of the 1980’s, as a result, it has been well established that children and adolescents can adjust just as well in nontraditional settings as in traditional settings."
