Gov. Snyder Signs Indiana-Style Adoption RFRA Bill

MICHIGAN — Gov. Snyder has signed a package of bills that will allow adoption agencies to discriminate based on religious beliefs. Progress Michigan released the following statement in response:

“Gov. Snyder has a history of siding with extreme corporate donors, but sacrificing the health and well-being of children is a new low — even for him,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Children deserve loving homes and our elected officials should be held accountable for supporting this blatant act of discrimination. We hope that Gov. Snyder is prepared for the same amount of backlash that was seen in Indiana when they passed similar RFRA-style legislation and we encourage the people to raise up their voices in protest.”
