A comprehensive sociological study found that kids raised by same-sex parents are more prone to suffer from maladies than those from traditional families, The Federalist reports.

In the article titled "Invisible Victims: Delayed Onset Depression among Adults with Same-Sex Parents," Dr. Paul Sullins discovered:

  • Adults raised by same-sex parents were at more than twice the risk of suffering from depression.
  • "Children of same-sex parents reported more violence, having a parent slap, hit, or kick them."
  • There is an "elevated risk associated with imbalanced closeness and parental child abuse in family of origin; depression, suicidality, and anxiety at age 15; and stigma and obesity."
All of which The Federalist asks: Are we really surprised?

The study confirms "what we already knew through human experience and common sense yet is being increasingly denied by people who insist on putting adult desires above the rights of children," The Federalist wrote.

The Sullins study refutes other studies done that purport to show "no differences in well-being" with kids raised by same-sex couples.

"The emergence of higher depression risk in early adulthood, coupled with a more frequent history of abuse victimization, parental distance, and obesity, suggests that the inattention of research and policy to the problems of children with same-sex parents is unwarranted," Sullins concludes.

The Federalist takes to task those who would have us believe that kids don't need to know their biological parents to be healthy and happy, ignoring the research and common sense.

"Advocates of this deviance from established norms cite their own studies claiming the children will be all right, and reject out of hand more extensive studies that prove otherwise, ignoring grown children who testify that being purposely denied a relationship with their parents is a deep psychological and emotional wound that will never fully heal."
