UPDATE – Gov. McDonnell Announces His Support for Faith-Based Agencies
April 5, 2011

We have some good news to report. Within the last hour, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell announced that he will oppose proposed regulations that would have forced faith-based adoption agencies to compromise their religious and moral beliefs in order to continue in their vital ministry.

At a news conference held this afternoon, Governor McDonnell said, “many of our adoption agencies are faith-based groups that ought to be able to establish what their own policies are.”

A full report can be found HERE.

Thank you to all who spoke out on this important issue! With your help, and by God’s grace, we were able to make a positive change for children and protect the rights of faith-based agencies.
