ARKANSAS: State Supreme Court Blocks Move To Ban Gay Adoption

Something to brighten your day:
The Arkansas Supreme Court has upheld a decision to strike down a state law barring gay couples and other unmarried people living together from serving as adoptive or foster parents. The state's high court wrote in an opinion Thursday that the law burdens the privacy of unmarried couples who live together. A state judge struck down the law last April because he said it forced unmarried couples to choose between their relationships and becoming adoptive parents.
The case had been brought by the anti-gay state attorney general, who said that adoption was not a constitutionally protected right.
