In an ABC What Would You Do? segment aired earlier this month, strangers step up to defend a gay couple who wants to adopt.

In the scenario staged by ABC producers, a young pregnant woman meets with a male gay couple in a restaurant to discuss adopting her baby. Another woman interrupts, telling her that giving her baby to a gay couple would be “wrong.”

“Seriously? You're going to give your baby to a couple of gay guys? Not to be mean, but I think that's the worst thing you could do to your baby. No offense,” she complains.

“I just think you're making a huge mistake.”

A man sitting nearby confronts the woman, asking “What's wrong with two men having a baby?”

“If they're in love, who cares?” he asks.

The man later tells producers that he has a gay brother.

“Right away you spoke up,” host John Quinones tells the man in revealing that the scene was staged.

“Yeah, I would like to think if that happened to my brother that someone would have stepped up. It just sounds like ignorance, quite frankly,” he said.

Another man tells the woman to “mind her own business.”

“Stop berating her,” the man's wife says.

“With what's going on in the world today, something like that that would be filled with love should be embraced,” the man tells Quinones. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
