Colorado Gov. Bans Abstinence-Only Sex Ed, Permits Homosexual Adoption

We have seen a noticeable decrease in out-of-wedlock births among teens. Now, all that progress has been wiped away with the stroke of the governor’s pen. – Jim Pfaff, Colorado Family Institute

DENVER, Colorado – Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter signed into law Monday two bills legalizing homosexual adoption and banning abstinence-only sex education.

Ritter defended his decision to sign H.B. 1330, which permits homosexual couples to adopt, by claiming the law would “strengthen families and provide children with as stable an environment as possible,” The Colorado Springs Gazette reported.

Jim Pfaff, president and CEO of the Colorado Family Institute, told Focus on the Family’s Citizen Link that both bills were examples of paybacks to financial supporters.

“Both bills show that this was a Legislature that was willing to pay back its benefactors,” he said. “Their agenda is to expand rights and legal acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle. What we need to be doing is strengthening the capability of mother-and father households to adopt.

“It’s a clarion call to the Church, that we need to be addressing the adoption issue.”
