Ron Paul voted to ban same-sex adoptionsSubmitted by Brad.king92 on Sat, 04/06/2013 - 11:19
I'm not 100% sure if this is true yet. I've heard some people say that he only voted against the federal funding of adoptions. But anyways, here are my thoughts.
While I'm certainly against same-sex adoption on a personal moral level, I believe that there is a more voluntary free-market way of preventing same-sex adoption. I've hears some people argue that same-sex adoption is a violation of the non-aggression principle since it does effect the child. But I don't see that argument as valid because the same could be said of children who are raised be single parents and yet we don't say that the government should take away children from single parents.
So do you guys think that Ron Paul voted against Libertarian principles?
[UPDATE: I just did a little research and I am pretty certain that the bill Ron Paul voted 'yes' on was to ban federal funding, not same-sex adoption.]
