I would definitely most have to agree with the liberals view of the whole situation. In my opinion, there is no way that the things that they conservatives are saying would lead to a dysfunctional family or even corrupt a child's upbringing. Abortion is someone that is discussed between two people and an agreement comes about between those two people to abort the pregnancy. Now of course we don't live in a perfect world, so sometimes it goes without being mentioned or one persons opinion really doesn't matter and they're going to do what they want. But I would say on a whole, if you are a family it is discussed between the two people in the relationship. Illegitimacy would also not destroy a family because in my opinion, labels are for soup cans. Everyone has this view that every person someone gets involved in, they need to put some sort of label like boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband. Love is love, and if two people want to be together and have kids together and live together in a stable home, it shouldn't matter whether they are married or not. As long as they can care for their child and provide stability for them, they can still be a functional family. Also, homosexuals can create a family, just like anyone else can. They can show love towards each other, not like the "norm," as if there is one; but they can love each other and they DO love each other. They, like everyone else, deserve the chance to create a family and have the love for a child that a heterosexual couple can have. There is no logical explanation as to why having homosexual parents would destroy a family. That baby/child would grow to love them as his/her parents and would actually be more open minded to people, like people should be. On the other hand is what the liberals have to say about this. That is that domestic violence could destroy a family, I definitely agree with this because violence should never exist within a family. It's not fair to the parents and it's not fair to the children that they bring into the violence. Eventually it would tear the family up and cause hatred between them and the family would get destroyed by all of that. Economic insecurity could also be harmful to a family's happiness. A family needs to be healthy in a variety different ways, socially, physically, emotionally, financially, etc. All of those things fall under economic security, if not, it could be damaging to a family because they wouldn't be happy with themselves, they would probably be harmful to themselves and other family members and they wouldn't have a social life to really become a happy person. That destroys a family because no one wants to be around a person like that. In addition to that, having adequate public supporters would be helpful to a family. I wouldn't go as far to say that it would tear a family apart, but could potentially help them out. Everyone could always use some extra support. So all in all, I would have to agree with the liberals opinions in this family situation.
