First point… If there are, oh lets say, 300 adoption centers, and oh, lets say 10% of them do not allow adoption by gay couples, that leaves 270 that do… so how is it going to stop anyone who is fit from adopting. Religious organizations have the right to decide whom they want to serve…
Second point… Get over it….
Michigan lawmakers are considering a bill that would give faith-based agencies the right to deny adoptions to couples that don’t fit their religious beliefs. But critics are stepping up saying it opens the door to discrimination while denying children loving homes.
There are more than 3,000 children in need of forever homes in the state of Michigan but some, including attorney Dana Nessel, say proposed legislation that’s gaining traction in the statehouse will make it harder for some families to adopt those kids.
“I can’t believe that this type of legislation is still under consideration,” Nessel said. “It should be about the best interest of the child. Period.”
