In its opposition to same-sex couples’ adoption rights, the child rights organisation stated that children raised by same-sex parents may have limited exposure to traditional gender role models.

The commission has asked the Supreme Court to intervene in a slew of petitions, claiming that the Hindu Marriage Act and the Juvenile Justice Act do not accept adoption by same-sex couples.

 

“Same-sex parents may have limited exposure to traditional gender role models, and thus the children’s exposure would be limited, and their overall personality development would be affected,” according to the petition.

According to the petition, studies on adoption by same-sex parents suggest that such a child suffers social and psychological consequences.

“Allowing same-sex couples to adopt is tantamount to endangering the children,” the petition claims.

According to a study conducted by the Catholic University of America, children of same-sex parents had twice as many emotional and developmental issues as children of opposite sex parents.

A five-judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court is set to examine a batch of petitions seeking legal recognition for same-sex weddings in the country beginning on Tuesday.

A bench comprised of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justices S K Kaul, S Ravindra Bhat, P S Narasimha, and Hima Kohli will begin hearings on the petitions referred to a larger bench for an authoritative pronouncement on March 13 by the CJI-led bench, citing it as a very seminal issue, on April 18.
