Gay Adoption

More reason to support (and promote) adoption by lesbian couples:

Regardless of socioeconomic status, [sperm] donor offspring are twice as likely as those raised by biological parents to report problems with the law before age 25. They are more than twice as likely to report having struggled with substance abuse. And they are about 1.5 times as likely to report depression or other mental health problems.

I re-read that and it's possible they have equally bad, or worse, outcomes than adoptees. But if that's the case I'll stop trusting Slate.
