A new study reveals that 51 percent of young-adult children of gay couples report ongoing bouts of depression, compared to just 20 percent for young adults raised by typical (male-female) parents.

The study, which was first pointed out in the Public Discourse by University of Texas at Austin sociology professor Mark Regnerus, was carried out by Catholic University sociology professor Paul Sullins, who examined data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health.
