Adoption Service Bill Headed To House

Faith-based adoption agencies in Michigan which claim a religious exemption would be allowed to decline services to certain potential adoptive parents without risk of losing public funding, under bills now ready for a vote in the Michigan House.

Republicans mostly support the bills, and Democrats have largely opposed them.

Supporters say faith-based adoption agencies should not be required to enter in any arrangement that would violate their beliefs.

But critics say the bills amount to being a license to discriminate against gays or unmarried couples.

On Tuesday, the bills were moved into position for a final vote in the Michigan House.
