For the first time in Senate history, a bill has been introduced to encourage agencies not to discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender couples seeking to adopt.
As more and more LGBT couples are getting married and starting families, we have a great opportunity to place children without a family into happy homes, said Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand, New York Democrat and lead sponsor of the Every Child Deserves a Family Act, Monday at the Huffington Post.
The past year has seen many moves toward gay equality, and the momentum is there to build on our progress, she said, noting the repeal of dont ask, dont tell, passage of gay marriage in New York and the unprecedented assault on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the U.S. Senate and in the courts.
Ms. Gillibrands bill would deny federal funding to any entity that considers sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status when contemplating prospective foster or adoptive families. A companion bill already has been introduced in the House by Rep. Fortney Pete Stark, California Democrat.

“You need to put the social issues at the bottom of your list ..”
The left would love that, and meanwhile 4,000 unborn innocents are murdered each day.
I gave you an example of a congressman who won the election in a liberal district BECAUSE he was a social conservative. We CAN do it all.
Conservatism is a way of life, and there’s more to being a conservatism than being ONLY a fiscal conservative.
Add another 'no', please...
Ah yes. Encourage the deviants to adopt children and then appear shocked and appalled when homosexual pedofiles run rampant across the country.
Oh please, I am not proposing any legislative changes. I am proposing that we do not bother to argue the point with liberals. They know where we stand and we don’t need to waste time or effort arguing with them.
Who are the liberals we are arguing with?
Sorry, but I’m afraid I don’t know what you are talking about.
