Are there any laws that prohibit same sex couples from adopting? In any state?
LGBT families cannot adopt in Mississippi or Utah under any circumstances. Both of these states ban all adoptions by LGBT families. Many other states ban LGBT couples from adopting, but do allow LGBT individuals to adopt.
For a complete list of the laws regarding LGBT adoption in each state, please go to the Human Rights Campaign web site at: http://www.hrc.org/laws-and-legislation/state
