There is a new article at CNN with some stunning statistics: 1 in 50 babies are abused and neglected in this country! These statistics are about non-fatal injuries. And these statistics do not include mistakes that parents make when they are learning to be parents. These babies were under 1 year old and a third of them who were abused were under 3 months. And 30,000 babies were less than a week old.
So getting back to my question: are gays and lesbians really a danger to children? These statistics show where the real danger lies. And it is time that these statistics are used again and again when these anti-gay groups try to tell us about what a family is and when they try to get laws on the books that prevent us from having children.
