In an op-ed, the Montgomery Advertiser cautions readers about confusing a reputable pediatrics organization with one that is pursuing its own agenda.
From Montgomery Advertiser:
Don’t be fooled into thinking a majority of pediatricians in the U.S. believe children are harmed if they are raised by same-sex parents.
That’s the false impression one might get from the amicus brief filed last week by the American College of Pediatricians with the Alabama Supreme Court.
The organization is an ideologically conservative group of perhaps several hundred doctors and health care workers who oppose equal rights for gays and lesbians, including the rights to marry and adopt or foster children.
Don’t confuse it with the much larger and widely respected American Academy of Pediatrics, with an estimated 60,000 members.
