Utah Family Judge Removes Baby From Foster Home Because Lesbians
The one-year old is being ordered from the home because of the sexual preference of the couple.
April Hoagland and Beckie Peirce are a married couple living in Utah, and for three months they’ve been fostering a baby girl placed in their care “while the state moves toward terminating her biological mother’s parental rights.” Together they are also raising Peirce’s 12- and 14-year-old biological children. Tuesday they went for a “routine hearing” with 7th District Court Juvenile Judge Scott Johansen.
Johansen is reportedly of the opinion that same-sex couples are unfit as parents. He ordered the child removed from their care within one week.
