Iowa Independent: Personal preference is still for adoptions by dual-gender couples, says Harkin

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Despite the Iowa Supreme Court striking down a state law limiting
marriage as unconstitutional and paving the way for legal same-sex
marriage in the Hawkeye State, U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin said he still
personally feels that the best environment for an adoptive child is
placement with a dual-gender couple. Harkin, in responding to a
question on the topic as a part of regular conference call with the
media by Carroll Daily Times Herald reporter and Iowa Independent alum
Douglas Burns, stammered a bit before admitting that he continues to
personally prefer child placement with and adoptions by heterosexual
couples.
