The US states of Oklahoma and Kansas have approved a “religious freedom” veto which allows adoption agencies to deny same-sex couples in adoption if their religion tells them to do so. The Kansas Senate approved the bill on Friday morning, with a 24-15 majority vote. The overwhelmingly Republican state will now send the bill to Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, who has voiced his approval for the bill, reports The Province. The Oklahoma House voted 56-21 for a similar legislative measure on Thursday and in case of this state not only private but also public adoption agencies are to be affected by the bill. The state is attempting to reduce anti-abortion legislation which means that a woman can only have an abortion with a permission of the child’s father.
