A recent study reported that 71% of people approve of adoption by same-sex couples. The study was conducted by Lightspeed research and asked just over a thousand people (ages 18-49) about different scenarios and reasons for adoption.
Out of the thousand who were surveyed, according to a press release, 73% of women and 62% of men approved of same-sex adoption. In comparison, 84% of those surveyed were open to single-parent adoption.
Oxygen Media organized the study and it coincides with the release of I’m Having Their Baby, a reality/documentary miniseries exploring the adoption from the birthmother’s point-of-view.
