Legislation targets traditional guidelines for adoption

06/04/11 – OneNewsNow.com - A pro-family attorney with Liberty Counsel argues pending legislation on Capitol Hill may claim to benefit children who await adoption, but in fact aims to shut down faith-based adoption agencies across the U.S.

A bill that would impose punishment on states that ban homosexual couples and unmarried people from adopting children has been reintroduced to the U.S. House and Senate. The Every Child Deserves a Family Act (H.R. 1681) is sponsored by Representative Pete Stark (D-California) and Senator Kristin Gilligrand (D-New York). It has more than 50 co-sponsors in the House, but has yet to be introduced in the Senate.

According to Stark, the measure aims to correct what he calls the “critical shortage” of stable, safe, and loving homes in the adoption and foster-care system. In introducing the measure, Stark labeled the foster care system as “flawed” because it “permits discrimination against capable, loving potential parents and children.” The federal baseline of the bill, he said, would end what he describes as “prejudicted restrictions that have denied an untold number of children the homes that they desperately need.”

At least one pro-family attorney disagrees with the liberal Democrat from California. “This bill has nothing to do with providing adoptive homes for children in need and has everything to do with shutting down all biblically-sound Christian adoption agencies around the country,” contends Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action.
