Florida Court Ends Ban on Gay Adoption

Regardless of your political stand on gay rights it has been hard to be a supporter of Florida’s 33year old ban on gay adoption while children in the State of Florida still lived without a family. One government official said the ban was part of another bill, and the intent was never to cause what it caused.  I don’t know if this is true but it certainly sounds very familiar to the way many things today still get added to government legislation.  

Yesterday the 33 year old ban on gay adoption in the Florida was deemed unconstitutional by a Miami court, Governor Christ said he would not step in the way and the ban would stop being enforced immediately. This is a victory for the children of the state of Florida.

The matter could still go to the Supreme Court of the State of Florida. The victory now is at hand, for families throughout Florida where foster children live with a gay parent. Government can still do the right thing when people with the strength of Martin Gill, put up a fight for their children and protect them in the way they were meant to be protected.

Congratulations to Mr. Gill, his children who should be proud, the State for Florida for doing what is right and the children who will benefit from finally receiving the loving permanent families they deserve.
