Louisiana Moves to Limit Gay Adoptions

Full Advocate story here.

Critics say the legislation reflects stealth antigay measures such as Act 1, the adoption ban that Arkansas voters passed in November. While not specifically mentioning gay couples, Act 1 outlaws adoptions by unmarried couples, effectively precluding gays and lesbians, who cannot marry in the state.

The Louisiana bill, which has the support of Republican governor Bobby Jindal, now moves to the senate.
