Social Work Concern for Alabama Child Placing Agency Inclusion Act (HB24, SB145)
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
A bill has been put forth that restricts the state of Alabama from acting punitively against adoption and child placement agencies that make decisions based on religious prejudice. If it passes these agencies can restrict the adoption rights of interfaith couples, single parents, married couples in which one prospective parent has previously been divorced, LGBTQ+ couples, or other parents to whom the agency has a religious objection. The consequences for the state of Alabama if this passes is that there will be economic recourse when agencies and families look to other states to adopt. The LGBTQ+ community will have another hurdle in achieving equality in the state. Most importantly, permanent placements for children in desperate need will not be allowed because of others' prejudice. While we appreciate and promote varied religious beliefs and concerns, we cannot allow these to impinge on others' human rights.
