Faith-based adoption bills move forward in Michigan

Thursday, April 23, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Three bills that will allow faith-based adoption agencies to refuse to serve prospective parents based on their religious beliefs were approved Wednesday by a state Senate committee, the USA Today reported.

The bills, which would allow the agencies to refuse service to same-sex or unmarried couples if that goes against the agencies' religious beliefs, are moving as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments next week on whether same-sex marriage should be legal in Michigan and several other states.

The 4-1, party-line votes in the Senate Families Seniors and Human Services Committee came after two hours of testimony from a wide group of supporters and opponents, including several gay and straight parents who have adopted children. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2015/04/22/faith-based-adoption-bills-move-forward-mich/26218467/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
