Where is Gay and Lesbian Adoption Banned?


Question: Where is Gay and Lesbian Adoption Banned?
Answer: With the overturning of an anti-gay adoption law in Florida in October 2010, gays and lesbians can now adopt children in all 50 states. Florida was the only state that explicitly banned "homosexuals" from adopting children.

Mississippi bans "same gender" couples from adopting children.

Utah bans all unmarried couples from adopting. Single gay and lesbian people may be able to adopt in Mississippi and Utah.
