When there are so many cases of abuse within the foster care system, WHY would you even think about putting politics before the priceless lives that are in desparate need.  These organizations are fighting on the front lines for these family-less children! and they're doing a great job of it!  Much better than the government has been doing.  Back off, let them continue to operate with the integrity and conviction of their beliefs.  They are part of the precious few who are trying to make a difference in this area of society.  I can't imagine why you would want to jepordize that in any way!!!!  There is absolutely NO room for your political agenda or the agenda of the left, when the bottom line should be helping the children.  And they certainly are, so stay out of their way and don't interfere!  They are greatly needed!!!!
