PRESS RELEASE FROM WISCONSIN FAMILY ACTION:
What does Paul Ryan really believe is best for children?
Pro-family Organization Calls on Congressman Ryan to Clarify His Beliefs
MADISON — Wisconsin Family Action sent a letter to Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) Friday inviting him to clarify what he believes regarding the best interest of children.
The letter is in response to Ryan’s recent comments indicating that he would now vote to allow same-sex couples to adopt children. Wisconsin Family Action has asked the Congressman whether his own family experience and the overwhelming body of research on this subject is what he believes or if he has fallen prey to political pressure and “political correctness.”
“Having a mom and a dad is what is best for children. Congressman Ryan has had a good track record of doing what is in the best interest of children, so we hope he will eliminate any confusion regarding his beliefs about this,” said Wisconsin Family Action President Julaine Appling. “His recent comments indicating that he would now vote to allow same-sex couples to adopt seem out of synch with his own experience, his stated values and votes, as well as the abundance of research we are sure he knows about. We want to give him the opportunity to set the record straight on what he really believes about what children need.”
