Nowadays, the public acceptance of homosexuals is increasing rapidly, which means the number of people in favor of same-sex adoption and gay marriage should also be on the rise. But same-sex adoption issue is being controversial between the societies. In this essay I will discuss the problem, pros and cons of same-sex adoption to show the opinion of those people.

There are many reasons why people support the same sex adoption to be legalized. The pros of same-sex adoption for children, firstly, child adoption by homosexuals better than staying in social welfare organization, it may give them additional inheritance and child-support rights.
