The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) is a socially conservative advocacy group of pediatricians and other healthcare professionals in the United States.[1] The group was founded in 2002 by a group of pediatricians, including Joseph Zanga, a past president of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), as a protest against the AAP's support for adoption by gay couples.[2][3] As of 2016 the group reported their membership at "over 500 physicians and other healthcare professionals."[4][5]

The organization's view on parenting differs from the position of the American Academy of Pediatrics, which holds that sexuality has no correlation with the ability to be a good parent and to raise healthy and well-adjusted children.[5][6][7] ACPeds has been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for "pushing anti-LGBT junk science".[8] A number of mainstream researchers, including the director of the US National Institutes of Health, have accused ACPeds of misusing or mischaracterizing their work to advance ACPeds' political agenda.

ACPeds has vehemently condemned the American Psychological Association as a “gay-affirming program” which “devalues self-restraint,” and supports “a child’s autonomy from the authority of both family and religion, and from the limits and norms these institutions place on children.”[10]

That's this "organization" of so-called pediatricians take on the American Psychological Association. Mind you, there are approximately 70,000 pediatricians in the United States and this "American College of Pediatrics" is made up of "500 pediatricians and 'other health professionals'" -- whatever that means. Take a look at the website it was posted on -- bunch of nutjobs.
