Anti-family ballot initiative set for Arkansas vote

A ballot initiative that would bar any unmarried couple from adopting children has made it onto the Arkansas ballot for November. It was sponsored by another one of these "family" organizations who are trying to save the world from the scourge of same-sex couples calling themselves "families." (how dare we!)

Look, if you're all so pro-family, and you're all so anti-abortion, shouldn't you be encouraging people to adopt children, rather than trying to impose a narrow definition of what a family is, thus making it that much more difficult for unwanted children to find a home? Wouldn't a "pro-family" organization be doing everything it could to make sure that every unwanted child has a family, no matter what said family might look like, so that we can reduce the number of abortions (something both pro-choice and anti-choice people can agree needs to happen?)

Again, why can't you "pro-family" people just focus on making your own family better, and leave mine alone?
