Studies have shown that there are no negative effects on adopted children raised by homosexual adults. However, homophobia and ignorance still prevail throughout the US. The State of Florida makes it illegal for homosexuals to adopt and other states such as Mississippi and Utah make it very difficult. The hypocrisy in states like Florida is laughable although they still trust homosexuals as long-term foster parents they do not allow them to adopt. They even allow substance abusers to apply. Such discrimination violates the right of homosexuals to adopt as protected by the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution. By signing this petition, which will be sent to US lawmakers, you show your disgust at these discriminatory laws.
