Petition fight

Posted By on Tue, Aug 19, 2008 at 7:52 PM

The Family Council says it will submit sufficient signatures by Friday to qualify its ballot initiative to make adoption more difficult. It would prohibit adoptions by households with unmarried couples and is intended, particularly, to make it difficult for gay couples to provide homes for children. But it would punish unmarried heterosexual couples along with many children.

As I"ve mentioned before, a group, Arkansas Families First, which I"ve supported financially, is working actively against the measure. It has been checking signatures submitted so far and  plans a court challenge. It will challenge the ballot title if efforts to disqualify signatures are not successful.
