The Impact of LGBT Parenting & Children’s Well-Being
Dawn Stefanowicz is an internationally recognized speaker, author and media spokesperson. On her website she has provided news articles and research since 2006, and is a full-time licensed accountant (CPA). Through her book, “Out From Under: The Impact of Homosexual Parenting,” Dawn acknowledges that children are impacted long-term by various family structures and living arrangements. She addresses legislation affecting children and advocates for children and families. Dawn begins by sharing her experiences in being raised by a homosexual father, where she was exposed to confusing, inappropriate and abusive sexual examples in the home from the time of infancy. She talks about some of the alarming evidence that shows how same sex parenting is detrimental to the health and wellbeing of the children involved in these relationships, which goes against the commonly accepted narrative from the left that this is not the case. She also stresses that redefining marriage is just the beginning of a growing movement to normalize all forms of sexual practices. We look at how this forced acceptance of genderless relationships breaks apart the fundamental basis of procreation and parenting, and when children are involved, whether through natural conception or IVF technology, there is a painful loss of identity created by having one gender rejected. Further, Dawn emphasizes where the LGBT movement has left out what children really need and gain from growing up with a primordial family unit. Then, she describes the political climate of Canada, where publically discussing issues related to same sex parenting or homosexuality can get one charged with a hate crime. In conclusion, we weigh up the ramifications of the state interfering with the moral values and education of our children and the rights of natural parents.
