Another Anti-Gay Hate Law Passes in Arizona, Brewer Signs this time
Nobody could pay me to go to the “papers please!” state anyway, but now there’s whole new classes of people who will boycott the state.
Married couples will have preference when it comes to adopting children under a new measure signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer on Monday.
Senate Bill 1188, which was sponsored by Sen. Linda Gray, R-Glendale, would require an adoption agency to give primary consideration to adoptive placement with a married man and woman, with all other criteria being equal.
The bill applies to both state and private adoption agencies. Previously, only Utah has a law requiring priority for married couples, though several other states have bans on adoptions by same-sex couples or by unmarried couples.
