|Victory Report!!! Governor Charlie Crist Re-Iterates His Support For Florida's Common-Sense Adoption Law|
|The Christian Family Coalition is speaking out today regarding a recent visit Florida Governor Charlie Crist made to Jacksonville to promote adoption as part of a statewide tour for "Explore Adoption Day."|
Apparently, some reporters from The Tallahassee Democrat are claiming that Governor Crist, when asked whether or not he would support repeal of Florida's law protecting orphaned children from homosexual adoption, stated he would have to "think about it." However, this assertion by The Tallahassee Democrat contradicts prior statements by the Governor on this issue. For example, when he was running for governor in 2006, Crist told The St. Petersburg Times, "My position is the traditional family is the best to adopt."
Furthermore, he reaffirmed that statement on Wednesday, in Jacksonville, the same day he supposedly said he would have to think about it. "I think Florida has it right right now," he told The Times-Union. In fact, the governor does have it right; Florida's common-sense adoption law does not have to be changed and the statistics bear this fact out.
For the last two years, Florida has set state records for adoptions with 3,700 in 2008-09 and 3,674 in 2007-08. Florida has also decreased the number of children entering Florida's foster care system by 32 percent.
"We applaud Governor Crist for standing by Florida's 32-year-old common sense adoption law that protects orphaned children," stated Anthony Verdugo, Founder and Executive Director, Christian Family Coalition.
