It's getting closer to becoming another bad Michigan law: This Wednesday, March 18, the Michigan House will vote on legislation that would give adoption agencies the power to deny couples the freedom to adopt or foster children who are in need of good, stable homes.

Every child in Michigan deserves a loving forever family. That's why it's essential that we speak up before legislation that would allow adoption agencies to discriminate against supportive parents becomes law.

In America, we are free to believe whatever we want about God, faith, and religion, but that freedom doesn’t protect actions that harm others. Allowing adoption agencies to use religion to justify leaving vulnerable children out in the cold goes against our country’s core values.

The interests of adoption agencies shouldn't be placed before the best interests of children at risk, nor should taxpayer money be used to support discrimination against couples because of their marriage status, sexual orientation, and even their religion.
