Banning gay adoption is unconstitutional


A judge ruled yesterday that a strict Florida law that blocks gay people from adopting children is unconstitutional, declaring there was no legal or scientific reason for sexual orientation alone to prohibit anyone from adopting.Florida was the only state with an outright ban on gay adoption.
