Half of all adoptions in Belgium are by lesbians and gays < Belgian news | Expatica Belgium | homosexuality | Scoop.it

In 2012, nearly half of adoptions in Belgium were for lesbian or gay couples.

The 2012 figure shows a considerable rise compared to the previous year. In 2011 only a quarter of all adoptions of Belgian children were by lesbian or gay couples.

Figures from the Flemish Adoption Centre show that fourteen of the thirty Belgian children that were adopted were adopted by gays. Two years ago the figure was barely 6 out of 25. Lawmakers legislated in favour of adoptions by gays and lesbians in 2006, but it is only now that gay adoption is starting to become really noticeable in the figures.

 

Ariane Van den Berghe of the Flemish Adoption Centre: "The trend started really slowly. During the first years the number of gay adoptions was limited. Prospective lesbian and gay couples have to go through the usual procedure and end up on a waiting list. As a result it took some time for the gay adoptions to flow through into the system.

The overall number of adoptions has fallen, but this is linked to the drop in the number of adoptions involving foreign children. 122 foreign children were adopted last year. The previous year the figure was 2011.

The fall is linked to the disappearance of Kazakhstan as a country of origin for children adopted in Belgium. The Kazakh authorities are reforming their adoption legislation and as a result all foreign adoptions are on hold. Ethiopia that provided the largest number of children for adoption in Belgium is sending fewer children to Belgium nowadays.

Sidebar: Gay Marriage’s Slow Stroll to the Supreme Court

Sidebar: Gay Marriage’s Slow Stroll to the Supreme Court | homosexuality | Scoop.it
An appeals court decision striking down California’s ban on same-sex marriage has scrambled the legal strategies on both sides, especially about whether to seek Supreme Court review.

 

1. To follow up the California ban on same sex marriage, this article is on the intent of taking such a ban to the Supreme Court.

2. This ban was originally written for the state of California, but the writer would like to make it apply to all 50 states. “Mr. Olson and Mr. Boies had urged the appeals court to find that the federal Constitution guarantees same-sex couples the right to marry — a rationale that would apply in all 50 states.” Although 40 states will not allow same-sex marriage, this ban can only apply to California, and many still argue that the Constitution gives the right for same-sex couples to marry.
3. The writer’s opinion isn’t clear and is written in such a way so that the public can decide for themselves what side to take.

4. The writer does not state his opinion directly. He gives both sides of the story so that the reader can choose a side on his/her own using the facts from both ends.

6. I learn almost nothing about this columnist, as this article is solely geared to the debate of same-sex marriage.
7. This article was written for someone who enjoys dipping their feet into the controversial debate of same-sex marriage.
8. This writer didn’t sway my beliefs at all. I have always believed that marriage should be between a man and a woman and I will continue to do so. This is a topic that is very difficult to convince anyone to take your side just off of facts and personal accounts alone. Religious beliefs and upbringing also play a major role in this debate.

this is talking about how California bad same sex marriage, this writer is not for same sex marriage and would like it to be baned in all states

 

Jazmyn Davis's curator insight, October 26, 2015 5:25 PM

 

This article is about gay marriage and the Supreme Court ban same sex of marriage in California. The writer applies it to all 50 states. In my opinion it shouldn't ,matter who people marry. It wouldn't be fair to gay marriages if only straight people can get married. I don;t have nothing against gay marriage because if they love each other like straight couples, they should have the right to get married. I think is basis, the Supreme Court is against gay marriages.

Liz Cheney, who is primarying GOP Sen next year, released a statement this week saying: “I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro gay marriage.” she also said "I believe the issue of marriage must be decided by the states, and by the people in the states, not by judges and not even by legislators, but by the people themselves, who is she to judge who love who but she wants to work for a world that is made up of different people

I chose this one because my partner is a Christian and believes in homosexuality. This relates because a lot of Christians don't believe that homosexuality is right and that its not what God likes.

Mataya Cary's curator insight, February 24, 2014 2:45 PM

-As many of you know, I'm fairly conservative in my theological views. I believe that the Bible is morally authoritative, that sex is for marriage, and that promiscuity is harmful to everyone involved. For many years of my life, I also believed that all homosexual behavior was wrong
