From the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute:
    A groundbreaking study reveals that adult children of homosexual and lesbian parents experience far greater negative social, economic and emotional outcomes than children raised within intact biological families.

    Regnerus' comprehensive study examines nearly 3,000 adult children from eight different family structures and evaluates them within 40 social and emotional categories.
