Noted Children's Dr. Speaks Out On Anti-Gay Amendment
by Doreen Brandt Newscenter
Washington Bureau
(Washington, D.C.) A prominent pediatrician Thursday told the House Judiciary Committee that a proposed amendment to the US Constitution to ban same-sex marriage would endanger children.

"Will the proposed amendment support the welfare of all families and all American children, including those hundreds of thousands of children whose parents are gay or lesbian," asked Dr. Jill Joseph, a pediatrician at Children's National Medical Center.

"With all due respect, for me as a pediatrician, the answer is clear. The Federal Marriage Amendment will only hurt the well-being of children in this country."
