A bill to allow faith-based adoption agencies to deny services to those who go against their religious beliefs is closer to becoming law in Alabama.

Critics say the bill is a way for faith-based adoption organizations to refuse to place children with gay parents.

The Alabama senate approved the bill Tuesday on a 22-9 vote.

The house of representatives approved the bill last month.

However, it must return to the house after senators added an amendment.
