From the Family Pride Coalition:

“Today, the Supreme Court ruled for fairness for all Americans,” said
Aimee Gelnaw, executive director of the Family Pride Coalition. “After
years of this antiquated law being applied with prejudice to gay and
lesbian Americans, it can no longer serve as an unjust barrier to
lesbians and gay men maintaining custody of their own children or
becoming foster or adoptive parents.”

This year, the Family Pride Coalition was deeply involved in efforts to
defeat three anti-gay foster care and adoption bills in Texas. The
sodomy law was used as a reference point in arguments against allowing
lesbian and gay Texans the opportunity to serve as foster and adoptive
parents. Despite this opposition, all three measures were defeated.
