Federal trial on Michigan same-sex marriage ban continues

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Testimony is continuing in the federal trial challenging Michigan's adoption law and the state's same-sex marriage ban.  A Stanford sociologist continued his testimony asserting that children raised by same-sex couples are not at a disadvantage when compared to those raised by heterosexual couples.

Hazel Park residents April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse adopted three special needs children between them and are asking the court's permission to adopt them as a couple.  They also want to be legally married but are unable to in Michigan because of the Marriage Protection Amendment passed in 2004 that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
