The National Confederation of Parents of Families and Parents of School Children in Spain proposed this week that parents specify that if both of them should pass away prematurely, their children should not be allowed to be adopted by homosexual couples.
The Confederation proposed that married couples express their will to the corresponding local government officials, so that if both were to die and not leave behind other family members, their children could not be adopted by homosexuals.
The statement adds that married couples should request that Civil law be changed to reflect this.
The Confederation made its recommendations in the wake of the imminent implementation of a new law making homosexual unions equivalent to marriage. The group said precautions must be taken to keep homosexuals from adopting children because it would be “illicit” competition for true marriages.
The statement warns that if these adoptions are allowed, other countries might not allow Spaniards to adopt children from their country for fear that they would end up in same-sex households.
Lastly, the Confederation emphasized that the government has decided to legislate in favor of minorities, and while they should be respected, they cannot be allowed to become dictators for the majority. The group called for measures that truly protect the family.
