WASHINGTON, May 29, 2002 ( – The American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) has decided to endorse homosexual parenting.  In a decidedly activist move, APsaA’s press release says: “By issuing this statement, gay and lesbian parents or prospective parents will now be able to include the position of the American Psychoanalytic Association as part of their supporting documents in their legal proceedings.”

APsaA, a professional organization of psychoanalysts throughout the United States, “believes that gay and lesbian individuals and couples are capable of meeting the best interest of the child and should be afforded the same rights and should accept the same responsibilities as heterosexual parents.”“It is disturbing to hear about cases in which gay or lesbian parents are being denied custody or the right to adopt solely on the basis of their sexual orientation—that’s discrimination.,” remarked APsaA President Newell Fisher, M.D.  See the APsaA release at:
