Michigan Kills Anti-Gay Adoption Bills

Three GOP-sponsored bills that would have allowed adoption agencies to discriminate against gay people died quietly yesterday. From the blog of Equality Michigan:
At 4 AM this morning it was official - the Michigan legislature did not hold final votes on House Bills 5763 and 5764, which would have provided adoption agencies with licenses to discriminate based on a moral or religious conviction, or on Senate Bill 975, which would have provided similar licenses to discriminate to healthcare professionals. I was proud to be there for that moment and today we celebrate with our supporters - along with all LGBT families across Michigan and our friends within partner organizations from Unity Michigan, labor, education, and other human rights movements!
And that was the only good news out of Michigan this week. (Tipped by JMG reader Nicholas)
