Objection to proposed new regulations

I have become aware that family status and sexual orientation can not be considered in the new regulations regarding adoptive parents. I disagree. Xhristian adoption organizations believe that a stable loving home with a mother and a father is optimal for a child's development. In addition, children reared with loving core values will also fair better in life. Numerous studies support these facts.

Only bereft of these conditions should adoption by single people or same sex couples be condidered.


To descriminate against religiouslt based adoption cemters is wrong and immral.
