A juvenile court judge in Utah has come under fire after ordering a 9-month-old girl be moved to new foster parents because the couple currently carrying for her are lesbians. "Today Judge Scott Johansen ordered our foster child be moved due to our sexual orientation! How is this ok?," Beckie Peirce, one of the girl's foster mothers, said November 10 on Facebook. Johansen based his decision on research he claims shows a child is better off with heterosexual parents, according to the Salt Tribune. He has not released that research, commented on his decision or made the ruling public. Click through this gallery to see more photos of the judge, and learn more about the case. (Google+)
