Anti-discrimination policy

"Currently, rules for adoption in Virginia protect against discrimination regardless of race, ethnicity and national origin.  I support reform of this anti-discrimination policy to also include protection for prospective adoptive parents regardless of sexual orientation, gender, age, religion, and political afilliation.  There are thousands of potentially wonderful parents who need this protection against discrimination.  Equally important, there are thousands of chidren in the foster care system in Virginia who need the opportunity to have loving and stable, forever homes.  Please reform the adoption rules in Virginia to increase these opportunities for thousands of parents and children!"


I could not have said this any better. What are you thinking in restricting the pool of potential loving homes?!? Surely the politics of religious conservatives cannot override the need for placing children in a stabile home environ?
