Opposed to this Bill

I am asking that you intervene in opposition to this regulation 22 VAC 40-131-170 (B) being proposed by the VA Department of Social Services. It is discriminatory to religious groups that oppose same sex couples from adopting.  It would destroy some of the best adoption agencies we have.
