Boseman Lee debate

I was disappointed no one asked any tough questions about character and ethical behavior. No one asked about allegations of forgery and the use of the N-word. No one asked developers money and out of state PAC money funneled into the campaign coffers. I'd like the following asked: The North Carolina General Statutes does not allow second parent adoptions by unmarried couples. N.C.G.S. § 48-2-301, provides, "If the individual who files the [adoption] petition is unmarried, no other individual may join in the petition." Because North Carolina does not allow or acknowledge same sex marriages it is not legally possible for a lesbian to adopt a child. Senator Boseman is suing for the custody of a child she is not the legal parent of because she was never married to the biological parent. What legislation is there that can be passed that would allow lesbians such as Senator Boseman rights to a child born of another? Would you change the adoption laws so that single couples can adopt and share parentage? Would you allow same sex marriages?
