I am so over the anti-gay adoption thing. Outside of Florida, has this worked anywhere? (Right, well, Arkansas... but I'm still blaming Huckabee on that.) Even the Florida thing is going away, I think, shortly.
From Pink News:
A state Senator in Kentucky has introduced a bill that will ban unmarried couples from adoption.
Human rights group The Fairness Campaign called Senator Gary Tapp’s bill "deceptively-worded."
"It is identical to a measure recently passed in Arkansas that prohibits adoption or foster care by an applicant 'cohabiting with a sexual partner outside of a marriage that is legally valid in Kentucky'," the group said.
"The language of the bill renders not just same-gender couples unfit to parent, but countless heterosexual couples that could serve as "next of kin" placement for children in need.
"The state would be forced to provide millions in additional foster care, an irresponsible burden to add to the Commonwealth's economic crisis."
And, yes, kids, that is a picture of State Senator Gary Tapp above. Sad, isn't it?
Jeez. Let's just kill this one soon. Go to the Fairness Campaign to find out how.
