Gay adoption is the abominable act of one or more gay adults adopting a baby or a child.

These fact huggers' arguments hold no water. Stephen Colbert has clearly stated that gay adoption is not an "equal right" but just one more in a long list of "special rights" demanded by gays, because "us non-gay people have to straight adopt."
