WV Supreme Court Grants Custody to Lesbians

Ad Feedback

The West Virginia Supreme Court has granted custody of an 18-month-old foster child to a lesbian couple.

The ruling overturned an order by a previous judge that the girl be placed with a heterosexual couple that might adopt her.

The toddler has lived with the lesbian couple since shortly after her birth.

The Alliance Defense Fund filed a friend-of-the court brief in the case on behalf of the judge.  The Christian legal group is also asking West Virginia
lawmakers to consider an adoption preference law that would give married couples the priority in foster and adoption cases.

CBN News spoke with ADF's Byron Babione about this case and the issue surrounding gay adoptions.  Click play for his comments.
