Oklahoma governor signs adoption law that LGBT groups call discriminatory on Partisan Viewpoint

(CNN) Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin on Friday signed a law that says no child-placement agency will be required to put children up for adoption or in foster care in situations that “violate the agency’s written religious or moral convictions or policies.”

The governor said the law will not restrict the ability of LGBT people from getting a child through adoption or foster care, but critics fiercely disagreed.
Oklahomans for Equality posted a video on Facebook in which officials said they are looking into legal action.
“The idea that bigotry trumps decency is really reprehensible. I am horribly disappointed in Governor Fallin tonight,” Sharon Bishop-Baldwin, vice president of the organization’s board of directors, says in the video.
