Arkansas Supreme Court Upholds Ruling Striking Down Ban on Gay Adoption and Foster Care

The Arkansas Supreme Court has upheld a ruling that struck down the state's ban on adoption and foster care by gay couples or other unmarried parents, the AP reports:

Arkansas "The state's high court wrote in an opinion Thursday that the law burdens the privacy of unmarried couples who live together. A state judge struck down the law last April because he said it forced unmarried couples to choose between their relationships and becoming adoptive parents. The attorney general later asked the Supreme Court to reverse that decision, arguing that fostering or adopting a child is not a constitutionally protected right."
