Keeping You Informed
Today was an incredibly disappointing day at the Capital. S.B. 62, an adoption bill that would allow for second parent adoption, was tabled in the Senate Health and Human Services Committee. This bill would have made it possible for an unmarried adult to adopt the biological or legally adopted child of his or her cohabitating partner. With so many children living in Utah without parents, it is extremely sad to see the legislature act against such needed legislation. We will continue to strive for equal rights for all Utahns, including the right to live with whomever one chooses and to raise a family.
