Virginia’s Republican governor, Robert McDonnell has two weeks left to decide if he will let regulations go through that would allow gay adoptions in the state.
As it stands, married heterosexual couples and single people are able to adopt in Virginia. The new regulations (developed by former Democratic governor Mark Warner) would allow adoption by unmarried straight and gay couples that go through state-licensed private and church-run agencies.
Governor McDonnell, do yourself, Virginia, the GOP, and the nation a favor: let the regulations go through. A child deserves a loving home. Ask any child trapped within the foster care system…I’m sure they would not mind being adopted by a gay couple, as long as they were loved.
If you live in Virginia, call McDonnell and urge him to allow these regulations to go through. Virginia children and gay couples deserve each other. Everyone deserves a loving family.
