|Action||Adopt new standards for licensed private child-placing agencies.|
|Comment Period||Ends 4/1/2011|
Please do not pass these minumum standards. Disallowing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation would force the closure of faith-based adoption agencies and present the state with a serious shortage of adoption agencies. How many more mothers will abort their children without these Christian services? Surely that is not the goal of social services. It would, I fear, be the result of this action. Wisdom demands another look at this action and its long-term consequences to both women and children.
