    Belgium: Gay couples win adoption rights

    BRUSSELS — The Senate gave definitive approval by the smallest of majorities on Thursday night to a legislative proposal granting gay couples the right to adopt children.

    Adoption was only possible up until now for heterosexual couples or by singles.

    "Today is a memorable day for all children of gays and lesbians. Finally, they will gain the right to a complete legal link to both of their parents," gay lobby group Holebifederatie said.

    The League of Human Rights said approval of the legislation was the confirmation of reality, pointing out that a lot of gay or lesbian couples already live with children as a family unit.

    Isn't there a study that says that if the parents are gay/lesbian then the adoptive children will become gay/lesbian also?

    Actually, all the studies I have read say that children of homosexuals are no more likely than children of herterosexuals to become gay.

    I'll dig up some research later and edit it into my post. (Right now I am in the middle of watching a movie. )
