Cuomo Vows To Battle Trump On LGBT Adoption Rights

New York’s 1010 WINS reports:

Gov. Cuomo said today that New York State would go to court to block a Trump administration proposal that would allow adoption and foster care agencies to turn away members of the LGBTQ community who want to give kids a home.

“This proposal isn’t just discriminatory and repugnant to our values—it’s also heartless and dumb as it would deny countless children a loving family and a safe place to call home,” Cuomo tweeted Sunday. “If President Trump moves forward with this rule, we’ll take legal action to stop it.”

The proposed rule change would allow religious organizations to reject gay families who want to care for a foster kid or adopt a child and not lose taxpayer dollars for doing so.
