Senate bills to expand adoption rights to LGBT families

Four state senators introduced a bill to expand adoption rights to all LGBT couples in Michigan.

The proposed bills would prevent adoption agencies from discriminating based on sexual orientation.

It expands on Attorney General Dana Nessel’s recent court settlement to ban state-contracted agencies from barring LGBT adoptions.

“Second-parent adoption is necessary in Michigan because children should have a right to secure legal relationships to both parents when it comes to custody, financial support, hospital visitation, school decisions, and more,” Senator Jeff Irwin said.
