In better news, the Miami appeals court has ruled that Florida’s restriction on allowing gay people to adopt children has no rational basis. In even better news, the governor of the state has announced that the state will stop enforcing the law. (Only the state Supreme Court could strike it down, though legislators could repeal it.)
Considering that Florida allowed gays to be foster parents, the law seems extra vindictive. Children need families, permanent families. While the state brought in experts to claim that the risks outweighed the benefits, the court found the testimony to have no grounding in fact.
