Paul Ryan gay adoption: Why former GOP VP candidate supports gay adoption

Paul Ryan gay adoption: Why former GOP VP candidate supports gay adoption, Congressman Paul Ryan now supports gay adoption, the Christian Science Monitor reported on Wednesday.

Paul Ryan “Comes Out” in support of gay adoption

Ryan first announced his support of gay adoption on Monday during a town hall meeting in Wisconsin, his home state. Ryan told those gathered that he changed his mind on gay adoption. He noted that in 1999 or 2000 he had voted against allowing adoptions by same-sex couples in Washington, DC, but he said he would vote in support of gay adoptions if he had to vote on the issue today.

“I do believe that if there are children who are orphans who do not have a loving person or couple – I think if a person wants to love and raise a child, they ought to be able to do that. Period. I would vote that way. I do believe marriage is between a man and a woman; we just respectfully disagree on that issue,” Ryan said.

The former vice presidential candidate told a TV reporter later that he changed his mind on the gay adoption issue years ago, but he has never talked about it publicly. He did not say why he changed his mind on gay adoptions.
