Political battles FOR our boys
Equality Utah introduced legislation in 2008 that would allow same-sex couples and other co-habitating couples to adopt. The issue is CO-HABITATION since single gay people can adopt provided that they pass the evaluation. Even though kids do better when raised in a home with two parents, the legislators of our great state decided back in 2000 that those two prople MUST be married. Then, they proceeded to introduce laws that specifically prohibit g/l marriage. Since then, the rate of foster placement has decreased 33% and adoption of kids who are difficult to place has dropped something like 45%. Well, we're sick of this kind of crap. We intend to fight until we can adopt our own frickin' kids.
