Romney For, Then Against Allowing Gays To Adopt

In what was a lightning-quick reversal even for him, on Friday morning Mitt Romney said he was “fine” with allowing gay couples to adopt, even going so far as to say they had a “right” to do so. By that afternoon he was less sure, saying “I simply acknowledge the fact that gay adoption is legal in all states but one”. Romney was also acknowledging his ignorance: at this time only 18 states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex parents to adopt.
