Respect the right of ALL to parent

In the words of MLK, "The arch of history is long but it bends towards justice."  Stand on the side of justice and support adoption regulations that protect prospective parents from discrimination based on their real or perceived sexual orientation, disability, age, gender, political or religious affiliation and race, color or national origin.  All children deserve a family and all families deserve the opportunity to provide a loving home for a child in need.  If the "values" of certain adoption agencies don't permit them to provide adoption services for all, without prejudice, then they need to get out of the business of adoption and allow other agencies who will do so, to fill that void.  Times are changing.  The young people of our country stand on the side of justice and love.  Will the "over 40's" stand in the way now to ultimately be dragged into the future, or will they lead the way?
