WASHINGTON, Aug 10 (LSN) – Late Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a spending bill for the District of Columbia which included an amendment by Rep. Steve Largent which forbade any of the money to be “used to carry out any joint adoption of a child between individuals who are not related by blood or by marriage.” While it is unclear if the Senate would pass the bill, President Clinton promised to veto the bill if it still contained the adoption restriction. Practicing homosexuals were outraged over the amendment as it would prohibit homosexual couples from adopting.
