MO ban on LGBT Adoption Overturned

C.E. Dorsett

As a resident of the Show Me state, this should make me feel better, but...

In a sharply worded opinion Friday, a trial court judge in Kansas City ruled that the state of Missouri may not block an otherwise fit applicant from becoming a foster parent solely on the grounds of sexual orientation (Gay.com).


The appeals will probably come soon, and with the higher courts weighted so heavily against Equality, I fear for the future of this opinion.  There is also the possibility of a new law or ballot initiative to prevent GLBT adoption.  I hope I am wrong but I don't see MO rolling over letting this ruling stand.
