discrimination protections

I support the original regulations and protections for those trying to adopt or foster.  State licensed adoption agencies should not be allowed to discriminate based on race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, disability and family status.  The best interests of children come first.  Faith based agencies voluntarily seek state licensing and are not forced to arrange adoptions.  Their priority should be the best interests of the child in their placement, and they should not be allowed to discriminate or promote their religious or political agendas.
