Laura Schlessinger on Larry King
Excerpts from the interview which took place the day the American Academy of Pediatrics reported that gay parents fare as well as any other parents, and encouraging states to allow adoption



Larry: Before we get into this, I must ask you about what they've been talking about on CNN all day today and your reaction. In fact, Wolf Blitzer did a whole show on it, on the American Academy of Pediatrics report that gay parents fare as well as any other parents, and they're encouraging states to allow them to adopt.

DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER, RADIO TALK-SHOW HOST: I'm sorry. Your question is?

KING: What do you think of that?

SCHLESSINGER: I think that the needs of children since human beings were created have never changed, and the optimal condition for raising a child is a mummy and daddy, preferably his or her own, in a covenantal relationship with, you know, a house, a picket fence, and a dog that throws up on the carpet, and I don't think that changes.

KING: Are you surprised at the American Academy of Pediatrics, certainly a distinguished...

SCHLESSINGER: Larry, I am never surprised anymore at things.

KING: Well, that's a pretty distinguished organization saying that there's no difference...

SCHLESSINGER: Well, that's...

KING: ... between a gay couple...

SCHLESSINGER: That's what they're saying.

KING: You disagree?

SCHLESSINGER: I still think the optimal condition for raising a child -- and I can't imagine there could be much argument -- mummy and daddy married together.

KING: But you're not surprised?

SCHLESSINGER: I'm not surprised by hardly anything anymore. I'm 55.
