Minnesota Pediatricians Come Out Against Marriage Inequality Amendment

Posted on


The Minnesota chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics announced today that it opposes the proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. The group points out that there is no research to show a link between a child’s well-being and his or her parents’ sexual orientation. According to chapter president Dr. Robert M. Jacobson, “This boils down to a child health issue. We are letting our LGBT patients and their families know that they are supported by their pediatricians.”
