An influential group of pediatricians says it favors gay marriage.
The American academy of pediatrics has declared its support of same-sex parents in a new policy statement. The group says allowing same-sex couples to marry would be in the best interest of children, offering them long-term security, rights and benefits.
The pediatricians agreed children were better off with stable and strong relationships among family members, regardless of their sexual orientation.
The statement comes after four years of analysis of scientific research in the matter.
