Dr. Roger Hiatt, a psychiatrist here in Little Rock, has written a guest editorial for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette entitled “Stability Favored”. In this piece, he defends Act One—the Arkansas Adoption and Foster Care Act—which was recently overturned by the Arkansas Supreme Court, even though 57% of the people voted in favor of the measure in 2008.

Today, the Arkansas Supreme Court ignored the voice of 57% of the voters—nearly 580,000 people—and ruled in favor of a lower court’s opinion striking down Act One, the Arkansas Adoption and Foster Care Act. This good law prevented unmarried, cohabiting couples from serving as adoptive or foster parents.
