Act Now: House GOP votes to keep LGBTQ families from adopting

This week, Congressional Republicans passed a budget amendment that would allow taxpayer-funded adoption agencies to deny adoptions to LGBTQ families.

If this amendment isn’t removed, thousands of children in the adoption system could be denied a loving and stable home, simply because the prospective parents are LGBTQ. Congress needs to reject this amendment immediately – and they only will if they hear from you.

If this amendment stays in the funding bill for the U.S. Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, Colorado adoption and foster care organizations would be allowed to claim their religion gives them the right to deny children a loving family – solely because the applicants are LGBTQ.

Click here now and tell your Congressperson that this amendment needs to be removed because this policy will harm thousands of children and deny them permanent, loving homes.
