Take Action Now to Oppose Discriminatory Aderholt Amendment
Posted on July 20, 2018 at 7:32 am

Alabama Congressman Robert Aderholt has introduced an amendment that would allow discrimination in foster care and adoption services. Texas has already made this form of discrimination legal, let’s not spread this across the country.

We need you to Take Action Now.

The measure would allow taxpayer-funded foster care and adoption service providers to discriminate against both children in care, and against prospective parents, based on sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, and marital status.

The measure breaks the cardinal rule of child welfare services: to act in the best interest of the child. Indeed, this amendment would HARM CHILDREN.

TAKE ACTION NOW send an email and call your Representative and tell them the Aderholt adoption discrimination amendment MUST BE REMOVED from the health and human services appropriations bill!
