|This current law is a terrible discrimination against homosexual couples and single men and women who desire children but cannot or will not procreate.|
Homosexual couples are just as capable, loving, and willing to raise children in a caring and nurturing manner as any heterosexual couple. Homosexuality has no bearing on a couple's ability to raise children.
Single men and women are also capable of raising children. Look to the myriad of single mothers and fathers who are still able to raise upstanding citizens.
The dark-age ideas of children requiring both a father and a mother to be raised healthfully is long dead. Embrace the future, it loves you, unlike the past.
Old value:: Only heterosexual couples may adopt children.
Current: Only heterosexual couples may adopt children.
Proposed: Everyone may adopt children.

|Random fact: Particracy allows you to establish an unelected Head of State like a monarch or a President-for-life, but doing this is a bit of a process. First elect a candidate with the name "." to the Head of State position. Then change your law on the "Structure of the executive branch" to "The Head of State is hereditary and symbolic; the Head of Government chairs the cabinet" and change the "formal title of the Head of State" to how you want the new Head of State's title and name to appear (eg. King Percy XVI).|
|Random quote: "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, from those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children." - Dwight D. Eisenhower|
