[N]ot one of the 59 studies referenced in the 2005 APA Brief compares a large, random, representative sample of lesbian or gay parents and their children with a large, random, representative sample of married parents and their children.  The available data which are drawn primarily from small convenience samples, are insufficient to support a strong generalizable claim either way.  Such a statement would not be grounded in science.  To make a generalizable claim, representative, large-sample studies are needed-many of them.
