Should Arkansas Pass the Unmarried Couple Adoption Ban?
More than 100,000 children are adopted each year in the United States, but it’s never easy trying to determine a child’s best interests. Currently the state of Arkansas is preparing to vote on an initiative that, if passed, would make it illegal for unmarried couples to adopt. No one would dispute that children ought to be cared for, but the question remains, what makes a good home for a child? (Editor's Note: On November 4th, Arkansas voters passed Act 1 to ban adoption for unmarried couples.)
