Opposed to changes in Adoption Bill

I believe that religious organizations should be able to offer help to women placing their children for adoption. Religious organizations often have very good advice for young women who are put into these situations. I would also like to add that preventing religious organizations from providing assistance simply because they're "religious" is not a logical, fair, or valid reason. I would like to challenge the people who created this bill to think much deeper than that.
