ACLU offers page on fighting Florida's gay adoption ban

Visitors should look at the ACLU’s information page “Fighting Florida’s gay adoption ban”, which has several important links. The most critical may be a 9/22/2010 story to the effect that the state appeals court upheld the ruling that the adoption ban is unconstitutional. If this goes to the Florida Supreme Court, well, remember 2000?

The article also mentions an “In the Life” Media story about Martin Gill.

Rosie O’Donnell has long been a party in fighting the adoption ban, which has always been a bit of a circular paradox, if the biggest complaint against homosexuality is the supposed refusal to procreate. A few other states have had adoption bans and even policies against gay parents giving foster care. Another issue is that childless people can feel ambushed by eldercare responsibilities, the half-sandwich problem.
