Please stop discriminating against gays and lesbians from fostering children!
 
  • I am a voter living in Virginia.  I am gay, and I want to possibly foster a child at some point.  I shouldn't be prohibited from doing so because of the Attorney General's personal religious beliefs, which have NO place in the public forum.
  • All children deserve a loving, forever family. Currently, there are more than 1,000 children waiting to be adopted in Virginia.
  • Decisions about prospective parents should be based on the best interest of the child, not on discriminatory factors unrelated to good parenting.
  • When agencies act in the stead of the state, they should be bound by principals of non-discrimination even if they are private agencies.

Thank you!
