Kansas ban on gay adoption stalls

The homophobes are having a hard time mustering support for a gay adoption ban in Kansas when so many children deserve a loving home.

On Wednesday, the chairwoman of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Children’s Issues said she had no plans to bring up the proposal. The committee met all day in Topeka to discuss adoption issues, and it was expected the proposal would be discussed.

It will not be coming out of this committee,” said Rep. Willa DeCastro, a Wichita Republican who is chairwoman of the committee.

Legislative leaders sent the proposal to the committee for study after Rep. Steve Huebert, a Valley Center Republican, suggested a ban. Huebert said children were better off in homes with two heterosexual parents.
