Kansas Rep. Sharice Davids Denounces Prez Trump Over Proposed LGBT Adoption Limits
The newbie Kansas politico is on the warpath after this recent culture war consideration.
The Hill: Trump officials propose rule to let faith-based adoption groups bar LGBT parents
"The Trump administration is proposing a rule that would allow faith-based foster care and adoption groups to exclude LGBT parents.
"The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the proposal Friday, citing concerns about religious freedom.
"The rule would allow organizations that deny LGBT parents adoption rights to continue getting federal funding, rolling back an Obama-era rule that included sexual orientation as a protected trait under anti-discrimination protections"
Check her Twitter storm on the topic today:
"It’s unacceptable that this Administration is proposing a rule allowing foster care and adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ parents, at the expense of the American taxpayer no less."
"This is the latest in a long line of attacks against the LGBTQ community from this Administration, but this rule is particularly appalling as it affects our most vulnerable population – our children.
"Every child deserves a stable, safe and loving home."
"We know firsthand in Kansas what happens when policy like this is passed. Just last year, the KS leg passed a bill allowing adoption agencies to deny services to LGBTQ parents, despite the foster care system already being overwhelmed.
"It was wrong then - and it's wrong now.
"I’m calling on the entire Kansas delegation to stand up for children & families in our state – and across the country – and urge the President to prevent this rule from going into effect.

Letter to KS Sens
Finale . . .
"I will not sit silently by while this Administration dismantles protections for LGBTQ adoptive and foster parents. It’s time for this Administration to do right by our children and families and reverse this decision."
And so we ask . . .
DO YOU AGREE WITH REP. SHARICE IN HER FIGHT TO STAND UP FOR LGBT FAMILY RIGHTS?!? OR IS PREZ TRUMP CORRECT TO INCLUDE FAITH-BASED PROTECTIONS?!?
You decide . . .
