Lesbian couple file to adopt in Florida, where ban was overturned – CNN.com

October 14, 2010

(CNN) — A lesbian couple have applied to adopt a child after Florida’s child advocacy agency announced it won’t fight a court ruling that found the state’s ban on such adoptions unconstitutional.

Unfortunately the article misstates that Florida was the last state to ban Gay adoption.  While it may be the last state that specifically bans gay adoption, Utah continues to enforce a law not allowing a person living with another person of the same sex, whether related or not the ability to adopt… effectively banning same-sex couples the right to adopt.
