Bill thought to be anti-gay killed by vote thought to be close

by Jeremy Hooper

   An Arizona bill that would have given married, heterosexual couples preference in adoption practices was narrowly killed yesterday in the state Senate. A win for all who measure parental fitness by analyzing each individual guardian's merit, not by checking to see if a duo's ringers are decorated.

Ironically, the measure needed only one single vote in order to have passed. Perhaps if the bill wasn't designed to tell the single vote that it was always less deserving than a couple, the lone vote would have been more willing to get on board. Live and learn, bill.
