Preserve Religious Freedom

Please do not place any restrictive regulations on faith-based adoption agencies that would require them to violate their religious convictions.  These agencies are doing a great work providing vital services to our communities.  They should be granted the freedom to continue to serve without intrusion into the practice of their faith. 

Many of us have sincere convictions related to sensitive social issues.  We ask you to respect our right to live our lives consistent with those convictions, especially when we are seeking to provide compassionate help to our neighbors.

Thank you for hearing our comments.
