Minnesota Pediatricians Come Out Against Marriage Inequality Amendment

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.”
