Op-Ed Piece on Act One

Over the weekend, Blake Edwards wrote an op-ed piece to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette concerning the Arkansas Supreme Court’s recent decision to strike down Act One, the Arkansas Adoption and Foster Care Act. I don’t believe I’ve heard anyone, myself included, better articulate the long leaps the court had to make in arriving at its decision.

The op-ed piece is entitled “Judicial Overreach on Initiated Act 1”. You can read it here: http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2011/may/28/judicial-overreach-20110528/

Dr. Roger Hiatt Defends Act One

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.
