For immediate release:
Delegate Dick Black Asks for Assistance to Stop "Gay Adoption - Protect Kids Now
This year, homosexual groups are very organized. They have flooded Richmond offices with e-mails and descended upon Richmond to lobby a radical homosexual agenda.
I am the sponsor of HB 2921, prohibiting adoptions by homosexuals. This bill preserves the Virginia tradition of having mothers and father adopt children. Since most children grow up to marry someone of the opposite sex, they deserve the greatest opportunity to experience the natural love of a mother and a father.
Virginia has never allowed homosexual adoptions; however, the law is not as clear as it should be. In these politically correct times, it is important to clarify the law.
In the next few days, the Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee will vote on HB 2921. Please e-mail the members of this committee and ask them to VOTE FOR HB 2921 as soon as possible.
On January 10, 2005, the Supreme Court refused to reverse an 11th Circuit Court decision that said that homosexual adoption wasn’t up to the courts; it was determined to be up to the legislature. These legislators will be making this decision in the next few days.
Thank you for your assistance and support. Please forward this to message to anyone that might help contact legislators.
