Preserve religious freedom

Type over this text and

I commend the Board for its approval on April 20 of regulations that respect the conscience and beliefs of faith-based adoption agencies and birth parents with regard to marriage and the family as it affects child placement decisions.   

To I conclude I ask the Board to reject any proposed changes that would discriminate against such agencies as well as many birth parents and force them to either violate their beliefs or, in the case of the agencies, to close their doors.  

A voting citizen .....and one appalled that such a consideration would get this far in American governance.
