'The Kids Are Not All Right,' Daughters of Lesbians Tell Supreme Court

The Supreme Court heard cases yesterday that could determine if same-sex marriage becomes the law of the land.

One key part of the debate centers on whether sanctioning gay marriage is fair to the children who would then be raised by same-sex couples.

While gay activists argue same-sex couples have the right to marry and be parents, six children who were raised by same-sex parents have filed briefs stating their opposition to redefining marriage.

Heather Barwick and Katy Faust filed a "friend of the court" brief saying they were harmed because they were not raised by a father and a mother. 

"While we love and cherish our mothers, we feel it's imperative that we bring to the court's attention the impact that redefining marriage will have on children like us," they wrote. 

"We oppose gay marriage on the grounds that it violates children's rights and cannot provide children with the most foundational building blocks for child development—a mother and father living with and loving them," they stated.

CBN News recently spoke with another adult daughter of a same-sex couple. Brandi Walton wrote about her experience in TheFederalist.com in an article called, "The Kids Are Not All Right: A Lesbian's Daughter Speaks Out."
