Mary Fallin of Oklahoma ed a bill on Friday that gay rights groups said would allow private adoption agencies to discriminate against L. Critics of the lawwhich also applies to private agencies working in foster care, said it was unconstitutional and harmful to children. Supporters said it would ultimately help children by protecting the agencies that work to place them.
Fallin, a Republican, said in a statement on Friday that the law did not ban same-sex adoption or foster care in Oklahoma. Fallin also vetoed a bill on Friday — one that would have eliminated the need for training and permits to carry a gun in public.

Other states, including Alabama and South Dakota, enacted similar laws after gay marriage was legalized.
