Capitol Connection Episode 65

Critical Religious Freedom Legislation Pending in Congress

One of the most important bills for family, freedom and life is currently awaiting a vote in Congress. The Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, likely the only religious freedom bill Congress will consider all year, seeks to protect faith-based adoption agencies from adverse action by the government.

State and local laws in various parts of the country have forced faith-based adoption agencies to either abandon their convictions about placing kids with married mothers and fathers or to shut down altogether. Already, such non-profit groups in Massachusetts, Illinois, D.C., and parts of California have been forced to close their doors Рleaving less adoption agencies working to find loving homes for children. 

Learn more about this critical piece of religious freedom legislation and its implications for families and faith-based adoption agencies across the country on this week’s Capitol Connection Podcast. Plus, NFA’s Executive Director, Karen Bowling, discusses highlights from the 2018 Nebraska Legislative session.
