Oklahoma City, OK—The Oklahoma State Legislature continues to push for new religious exceptions that would allow adoption and foster care placement agencies that receive state funding to discriminate against potential foster and adoptive parents.
For example, these agencies could discriminate against atheists and religious minorities, single parents, and LGBTQ people without consequences, all while being funded by your tax dollars.
Unfortunately, this bill (SB 1140) passed the committee and it will soon receive a vote by the full Oklahoma House. Oklahoma lawmakers need to hear from you right away.
This may be our last chance to stop this terrible bill! Tell your state lawmakers they should oppose SB 1140 now!
This kind of discrimination reduces the number of potential adoptive parents, making children in these systems less likely to find a loving permanent home. Every child in the foster and adoption system deserves a forever home.
Together we can stop this hateful bill! Please act now and help us ensure that no child goes without a home because of an adoption agency’s religious dogma.
