Indiana Supreme Court to Review Gay Adoption Issue – Some Legislators Push Legislation to Bar Gay Adoption

The question of whether adoption of children by gay parents is legal is being taken to the Indiana Supreme Court by that state’s Attorney General.  Last month, the Indiana Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that gays may adopt and that decision is now on appeal.  Regardless of the ruling by the State Supreme Court, some legislators are “pushing to ban gays and lesbians from adopting.”  However, proponents of banning gays and lesbians from adopting, are not seeking to ban gays and lesbians from being foster parents.  Source.  Time Evans, Indianapolis Star, courier-journal.com.
