During adoption rights battle, couple works to have Michigan's gay marriage ban declared unconstitutional
Detroit Free Press • Sep 7, 2012
Hazel Park mother April DeBoer said she and her lesbian partner are challenging Michigan's same-sex marriage law not for themselves, but to protect the rights of their kids.
DeBoer and partner Jayne Rowse decided to take the battle they're already fighting in U.S. District Court in Detroit one step further today. They amended their complaint in front of Judge Bernard A. Friedman that asks for the right to adopt as a same-sex couple, instead challenging Michigan Governor Richard Snyder, Attorney General Bill Schuette and Oakland County Clerk Bill Bullard Jr. to declare Michigan's ban on same-sex marriage and partnerships unconstitutional.
