Florida Gay Adoption Ban Is Ruled Unconstitutional

November 25, 2008

MIAMI — A Florida law that has banned adoptions by gay men and lesbians for over three decades is unconstitutional, a judge here ruled on Tuesday.

Florida's adoption law is in the best of interests of children. I hope that the higher courts will see the wisdom of this pro-traditional family law.
