This is from the homepages of American College of Pediatricians: "The Mission of the American College of Pediatricians is to enable all children to reach their optimal physical and emotional health and well-being. To this end, we recognize the basic father-mother family unit, within the context of marriage, to be the optimal setting for childhood development, but pledge our support to all children, regardless of their circumstances." And from their core values: "3. Recognizes the fundamental mother-father family unit, within the context of marriage, to be the optimal setting for the development and nurturing of children and pledges to promote this unit."
Person wanting to join American College of Pediatricians must agree on those valueas in order to qualify. So tell me, if thats allready the premises of their work, how could that be an reliable source for anything? Their members are forbidden to even concider the possibility that same sex familyes could be as healthy enviroment to grow. WillM 19:33, 21 November 2007 (EST)
