Adoption bill passes to let agencies deny LGBT
MONTGOMERY, Ala/. (WPMI) —
A bill to allow faith-based adoption agencies to deny services to those who go against their religious beliefs is closer to becoming law in Alabama.
Critics say the bill is a way for faith-based adoption organizations to refuse to place children with gay parents.
The Alabama senate approved the bill Tuesday on a 22-9 vote.
The house of representatives approved the bill last month.
However, it must return to the house after senators added an amendment.
