Protect ALL Prospective Parents from Discrimination

Please approve the Adoptive Regulations as proposed to protect prospective parents from discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religious affiliation, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability or political affiliation.

It is unacceptable that certain religious leaders/traditions bully state agencies to enforce their own religious prejudices.  

This is about children who need safe, supportive, loving homes.  No one who can provide such a home and is willing to do so should be denied the ability because they are gay or lesbian or for any other reason.
