Alabama lawmakers approved an anti-LGBT law

After approval by Alabama legislators, the House Bill 24 is now headed to the governor's desk.

If the bill becomes law, it will allow state licenses of adoption agencies to refuse to place children with same-sex couples, denial based on their religion.

Republican Rep. Rich Wingo introduced this bill to ensure that religious agencies are protected from discrimination. No concern for him that agencies then discriminate people.

"The Alabama House of Representatives proved today that they don’t have the best interest of the nearly 5,000 children in Alabama’s child placing systems in mind," Equality Alabama board chair Alex Smith said in a press release.

"This bill robs these children of a loving home and gives the state’s seal of approval to unnecessary religious exemptions that open the door to discrimination."

Equality Alabama and the National Equality Federation are among the people who ask the governor to veto the bill.
