Rep. Paul Ryan said he now regrets voting against adoption rights for Washington, D.C.'s same-sex couples. Ryan made the statement at a town hall meeting in Wisconsin Monday, after a constituent confronted him on his poor rating on the Human Rights Campaign's legislative index. Ryan voted in 1999 in favor of banning same-sex couples from adopting in the District of Columbia, over which Congress often exerts control. He said he regretted voting against the bill, and said gay and lesbian couples are capable of providing a loving home to children, Think Progress reports.
