Last week, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said that "there's considerable disagreement among sociologists as to what the consequences of raising a child in a single-sex family, whether that is harmful to the child or not."
It reminded me of Mormon apostle Dallin Oaks' recent statement that "The social science literature is controversial and politically charged on the long-term effect of" same-sex parents on children.
Not so. The American Academy of Pediatrics stated that 25 years of research has found that "many factors confer risk to children's healthy development and adult outcomes, such as poverty, parental depression, parental substance abuse, divorce, and domestic violence. … But the sexual orientation of their parents is not among them."
