Do not allow child welfare agencies to discriminate

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

The House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday passed an adendment allowing taxpayer-funded adoption agencies to deny LGBT families the ability to adopt a child based on religious objection. The adendment will also allow agencies to discriminate against people for their religion, if they have ever been divorced, and any other characteristic or trait the agency deems “objectionable.”

Taxpayer dollars should never be used to promote discrimination against any person, period. It’s shocking to see some lawmakers willing to hurt not only LGBTQ Americans, but vulnerable children waiting for forever homes.
