Even if you did not say that, it is the net affect of narrowing the field of potential parents to only heterosexual affluents. This legislation is actually more dangerous than just that. It gives license to private adoption agencies to discriminate on virtually any basis whatsoever. I doubt I could convince you that it might just be a good idea to let gay parents adopt needy children, but I'll take a crack at it. Maybe the reason us gay people are around in the first place is because there are too many straight couples popping out children out of wedlock left and right, and so we're God's answer to providing those kids with a home, and incidentially, as couples we cannot have biological children, so we're not adding to the problem. Rather, we're around as a means to correct it.

And since so many don't, they'll just have to "settle" for two people who really want them, and love them with everything they are and have.
A gay single would be a better situation than a gay couple. A gay couple is the WRONG idea to promote to children.
