Infringement of religious freedom

I am writing to express my opposition to these proposed regulations regarding adoption. No adoption agency, including and especially faith-based agencies, should feel forced to place children in environments they feel would be detrimental to the child in any way, physically, mentally or spiritually. These regulations would essentially do just that.
