Florida state
senator vows to repeal state's ban on adoption by gays

At a press conference outside the Florida state senate chambers in Tallahassee Wednesday, a state senator announced that she would work to end the state's 30-year-old ban on adoptions by gays. Democratic state senator Nan Rich of Weston said she was sponsoring a bill that would finally repeal the ban on gays and lesbians adopting children, reports Florida Today. Critics of the ban say that it is unfair and hypocritical, since the state does not bar LGBT people from becoming foster parents. Last year, foster children of gay and lesbian caregivers participated in a demonstration at the state capitol, protesting the law that prohibits their adoption by people they consider their parents.
