mitt romney gay adoption as governor

  • Mitt Romney Didn’t Oppose Gay Adoptions As Governor [Updated]

    Republican Presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney’s position on gay adoption is vague and a bit confusing. The former Governor told Wolf Blitzer in the clip below from 2008 that he didn’t oppose gay adoption in Massachusetts, and didn’t want to stop the courts from letting gay adoption go forward. [Update] Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul emails BuzzFeed: “Gov. Romney believes a family with one mother and one father is the ideal setting to raise a child. That doesn’t mean adoption by other parents — whether they be single or same-sex — should be outlawed. States have to make decisions that are in the best interests of children, and where possible that should be in a home with one mother and one father.”
