Should Adoption Agencies Be Allowed To Decide Who They Serve Based on Religion?

Tweet This

A State House committee has approved bills to shield faith-based adoption agencies from having to serve gay couples even if the U.S. Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is legal. Civil rights groups are challenging the legislation, saying it would enshrine religious discrimination.WDET’s Pat Batcheller asked Michigan Public Radio’s Rick Pluta to explain. Click on the audio links above to hear the conversation.

There are three bills numbered 4188, 4189, and 4190. Read 4188 here.
