    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand announced a bill Sunday that would remove legal barriers to adoption by lesbian, gay and transgender parents. Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said she will introduce legislation this week that would prohibit discrimination against adoptive parents. The Every Child Deserves a Family Act would prohibit any entity that receives federal funds from discriminating against adoptive or foster parents based on sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status.
    Perhaps the 10th Amendment. Not sure this qualifies as some federal issue. States can handle it. Support diversity.

    Tim-
    Only what you disclose on the Internet. Get off you high horse, it's not uncommon to reply to a post. If you don't understand how this works, sit back and pay better attention.

    This is a concept that appears foreign to the OP.

    No I said IMO it would be abusive to send them to a home of homosexuals or transgender parents. You assumed all the rest.

    Which is complete nonsense.

    For the reasons I put forth, not at all.

    Apparently discretion isn't popular.

    Are you not to have any friends or neighbors?

    Have you adopted? We have, if you haven't adopted, then you don't know what you are talking about. Who are you to say what kind of family a child should have or not have. How callous and hateful of you.
