Kansas bill lets agencies deny adoptions to LGBT couples

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Adoption and foster care organizations contracting with Kansas welfare officials would be allowed to refuse placements to gay and lesbian couples based on religious beliefs under a bill that has passed the Senate.

The bill that passed Thursday on a 28-12 vote now heads to the House, where nearly identical legislation has also been introduced, The Kansas City Star reported .

"It's sick discrimination. And these are people who can love and adopt children and are doing so. So to say it is not discriminatory, I beg to differ," said Sen. Barbara Bollier, R-Mission Hills.
