RICHMOND – Lawmakers will consider a bill that would forbid homosexuals from adopting children.
Delegate Richard H. Black has proposed a bill that would add new criteria for adoption reports filed with the circuit court. The Loudoun County Republican’s bill amends the state’s adoption law by adding a phrase that states: “No person under this statute may adopt if that person is a homosexual.”
Current law permits any person or married couple residing in the state to petition to adopt.
