A recent ICM Research survey conducted for the United Kingdom’s National Adoption Week revealed a high degree of resistance to adoption by gay couples.
The poll of 1,007 people found that 40 percent of those questioned think gay male couples should not be allowed to adopt and 36 percent think lesbian couples should be banned from adopting.
