Illinois Anti-Gay Adoption Bill Killed in Committee

Pride Flag

Good news has just been spread across the great state of Illinois.  As I reported earlier this week, SB1123 which was a bill aimed at supporting the needs of the blind was amended to give religious organizations "the right" to opt out of servicing adoptions for those who don't have the same "deeply held beliefs" as they do....and now it's dead in committee!

In a vote of 7 to 6 with one abstention the vote never made it out of committee in it's third reading.

I know you called your Senators and told them your thoughts on this bill and it's great to know that your voices have been heard.
