Opposed to new regulations

As a mother who adopted a child through a Christian agency, I oppose the new regulations that would force Christian agencies to defy their own beliefs. 

This would prohibit Christian agencies from doing what they believe.  A Christian adoption agency should not be forced to regulations which are against their own moral judgement, especially when the government knows beforehand of what they believe! 

To vote for this regulation to pass is to be voted out of office!

Thank you for the opportunity to provide comments.
