Talking About Religious Exemptions & Adoption Discrimination

The Bottom Line

Some states have introduced legislation to create broad religious exemptions allowing discrimination in taxpayer-funded adoption and foster care services. Such laws would allow adoption agencies and child services workers to make decisions for children in their care based on their religious beliefs, rather than the best interests of the child. And it would open the door to agencies requiring that all prospective parents meet their religious standards or be rejected, with children being denied loving homes and left in government care as a result.

Talking About Religious Exemptions & Adoption Discrimination is a guide to effective conversations about these harmful laws, detailing how such bills create a license to discriminate with taxpayer funds that hurts children and deprives them of the forever homes they so desperately need.
