NOM Chairman John Eastman Denies He Said "Adopted Kids Are Second-Best"

"An article by the Associated Press, excised in part by The Huffington Post, grossly misrepresents my views on adoption. I believe that couples who adopt children are heroes and do a great service to society, and to the children they adopt. I strongly believe, based on thousands of years of experience and countless social science studies, that children do best when raised by a mother and a father within the bounds of marriage. I commend all those couples who selflessly give of themselves to raise a child who, through no fault of her own, has been deprived of a mother and father. There is nothing 'second best' about adoption." - NOM chairdouche John Eastman, in a statement posted on his hate group's blog.

FACT CHECK: Let's go to the tape. "Certainly adoption in families headed, like Chief Roberts' family is, by a heterosexual couple, is by far the second-best option."
