Georgia Senate approved anti-LGBT adoption bill

Written by 

georgia house


The Georgia Senate has passed a bill that would allow foster and adoption agencies to reject applications from LGBT parents.

This bill is entitled "Keep Faith in Adoption and Foster Care Act." The Senate approved it by a 35 to 19 vote even if the debate has been stormy between opponents and supporters of the bill. It is now heading to the House.

If passed, it will allow adoption and foster agencies to refuse to place children with same-sex couples.

In addition, the state wouldn't take any "adverse action" against these discriminatory organizations.

The Georgian Senate has approved a bill that discriminates against LGBT parents. If the House passed it too, would Republican Governor Neil veto it? He blocked HB 757 because he found it discriminatory. This bill sought to legalize LGBT discrimination based on religion.
