(USA Today) — Mitt Romney reaffirmed his support for gay couples to adopt children.
In an interview Thursday on Fox News, the presumptive GOP nominee said it is "fine" for couples of the same sex to adopt children. He once again said he is opposed to gay marriage, which President Obama now supports.
"If two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship and even want to adopt a child, in my state individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children," said Romney, a former Massachusetts governor. "In my view that's something which people have the right to do, but to call that marriage is ... a departure for the real meaning of that word."
