As a result of the homosexual agenda's effectiveness, some states have been forced to enact policies and laws that violate the religious liberty of faith-based adoption and foster care agencies.

Adoption agencies in California, Massachusetts, Illinois, Philadelphia and the District of Columbia have been closed because of their refusal to violate the religious conviction that children considered for adoption should be placed in a home with a mother and a father

Congress is considering a bill, the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, to address this issue and protect the "sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions" of faith-based adoption and foster care agencies. If passed, the legislation would prevent these agencies from being discriminated against by the federal government and by state governments that receive federal funding.

Contact and urge your congressman to support the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, to also call on House leadership to provide their strong support by helping bring the bill to the floor and to whip the votes for passage.

An estimated 440,000 children are in foster care each year, and nearly 100,000 of them are in need of being adopted. These children should not suffer the consequences of bad policy in liberal states. You can help do something about this.
