Support Anti-discrimination measures for adoption

I am a voter living in Virginia, and I think all children deserve a loving, forever family.

You are considering whether to approve regulations prohibiting adoption agencies from discriminating against prospective adoptive parents based gender, age, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, disability or family status.  Non-discrimination regulations will make Virginia a better place for children in need of permanent homes.  Please do what you can to make that happen.

Decisions about prospective parents should be based on the best interest of the child, not on discriminatory factors unrelated to good parenting.
