The conservative group One Million Moms is urging parents and grandparents to let Highlights magazine know they do not approve of the recent decision to feature same-sex couples in the children's magazine.

"Babies and preschoolers will soon be introduced to this sensitive topic in the Highlights line of magazines," the group wrote on its website.

"Parents are seeing more examples of children being indoctrinated to same-sex families as normal, especially in the media," according to One Million Moms' post. "Children's publications are no longer off limits, even those that cater to toddlers and elementary age children."

Highlights had previously resisted calls to include same-sex couples in its popular magazines, saying the decision on when to introduce social issues to children belonged with their parents.

"A lesbian mom reportedly complained that the magazine Hello didn't feature any same-sex families," the One Million Moms wrote. "Hello's audience is children 0-2, and it's published by Highlights."

Such "backlash" from the LGBT community caused Highlights to reverse course, the group said.

One Million Moms did not outright call for a boycott, but did say such content would be a "deal breaker" for conservative families.

"Parents are left with no other choice than to cancel their subscription," the group said.

"Many parents and grandparents buy subscriptions to these magazines as gifts, especially at this time of year," the website said. "They should be warned of the upcoming change of content in these kid's magazines. . . . Urge Highlights to go with their initial decision and not cave into pressure from homosexual activists by including same-sex families in the magazines."
