    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee announced Tuesday that he’ll sign into law a measure that would assure continued taxpayer funding of faith-based foster care and adoption agencies even if they exclude LGBT families and others based on religious beliefs. The GOP-controlled Senate gave the bill final passage on the first day of the 2020 legislative session after it was initially approved by the House last April. The bill was sent to the Republican governor amid warnings by critics of possible negative consequences for Tennessee’s reputation. Lee’s communication director, Chris Walker, confirmed in a statement Tuesday evening that the...
  • Find Jonah a home for Christmas! Texas boy, 12, who is praying to be adopted after four years in foster care says God is the reason he still smiles

    A 12-year-old Texas boy, who is praying to be adopted, says God is the reason he's still smiling despite still being in foster care. Jonah, whose last name wasn't provided, is currently in the custody of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and has spent four years waiting to be adopted by a forever family. He sat down for an interview with WFAA 8 in Dallas for the station's Wednesday Child segment, which focuses on children hoping to be adopted. He says that God keeps him grinning when he's feeling down. 'He's brought me through many, many things,'...

    Meet CJ, he’s a two year old with a new lease on life, that’s because on Thursday he was adopted. He was born two months early and was found in a house all alone. He was rushed to a hospital where he recovered — and that’s when Michelle Lavett took him in. “He was addicted to drugs when he was born. He had a really, really rough beginning, but he’s come such a long way,” said Lavett. Michelle and her husband adopted CJ’s three older siblings. And, the timing of CJ’s adoption is bittersweet for the family. “It’s very symbolic,...

    The Trump administration has always been an advocate for religious liberty, and on Friday they reaffirmed that commitment by proposing rolling back an Obama-era rule that denied federal funding to foster care and adoption groups that exclude LGBT parents—which would be a huge win for faith-based organizations and the First Amendment. The White House says the rule from the Department of Health and Human Services is needed to remove barriers that prevent some nonprofits from helping vulnerable people in their communities. It would apply to a broad range of organizations that receive federal support, such as those that get...

    This month, Simone Biles became the most decorated gymnast of all time when she earned five gold world medals at the World Championship on October 13. Biles’ birth mother struggled with addiction and when Biles was just three years old, she and her siblings were taken from their mother and placed in foster homes. For three years, they bounced from home to home, never feeling as though anyone saw them. Then her grandfather and his wife stepped up to adopt Biles and her sister. “Although I was young when my foster care ordeal began, I remember how it felt to...
  • Federal Judge Rules Catholic Adoption Agency Can Refuse LGBT Parents

    In a victory for religious freedom, a federal judge in Michigan ruled a Catholic adoption agency that contracts with the state will be allowed to refuse to handle adoption requests that would place children with LGBTQ couples. The judge pointedly noted that in opposing the agency, the state’s attorney general engaged in a “targeted attack” on the agency’s “sincerely held religious belief.” The ruling came Sept. 26 in a case cited as Buck v. Gordon, which involved Lansing-based St. Vincent Catholic Charities, along with Chad and Melissa Buck, parents of five children with special needs, and Shamber Flore, a former...

    ... It all started when a 12-year-old boy was brought to a Moscow hospital with a stomachache last month. The doctors suspected appendicitis. But the checkup quickly took a different turn. When the boy mentioned that he is adopted and lives with two dads, the doctor called the police. On Wednesday, Russia's Invesigative Committee, the country's main federal investigative body, officially launched a criminal case against the officials who allowed one of the fathers to adopt children. It is the first case of its kind, Interfax news agency reported. According to Russian officials, two adopted boys have been living with...

    The head of Russia’s upper house of parliament says that allowing homosexual couples to adopt children would lead to the extinction of humanity. Russia banned homosexual couples from adopting children in 2013. “What will allowing same-sex couples to adopt children lead to? It’ll simply lead to the extinction of mankind,” Valentina Matvienko, the head of the upper-house Federation Council, told a government-sponsored youth forum outside Moscow earlier today. “There are basic ingredients for happiness, I believe they’re universal: family, children and parents. We see how these foundations are being eroded,” she added. The comments are markedly different from the west’s...

    Remember these statements by Democrats seeking to become their party’s presidential nominee? “I believe that reproductive rights are human rights, they are civil rights, and they are non-negotiable,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York said in an interview with The Atlantic earlier this month. “We must be vigilant in protecting a woman’s right to choose,” Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey said on Twitter in January. “… now more than ever, we must remain steadfast in our defense of a woman’s right to choose,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii said in a statement on the 40th anniversary of the landmark...

    While many companies support abortion and give hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood, fast food giant Wendy’s is going in a completely different direction. Watch the video: Dave Thomas, Wendy’s founder, was adopted at 6-weeks old, and he devoted his life to saving children in need.

    As “woke capitalism” becomes more prevalent, one multinational – the restaurant giant Wendy’s – is bucking the trend and promoting life. Wendy’s and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, named after the late founder of the fast food chain, are standing up to better the lives of children in the foster care system. While liberals complain about conservatives not caring about children once they are born, a program created by the Foundation, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, finds homes for children who are older, part of a group of siblings, or have developmental disabilities.

    Pro-choicers, especially the rich and famous ones, have been attacking pro-life bills all over social media, including Alabama’s Human Life Protection Act, which seeks to make abortion and attempted abortion felony offenses. It’s a bill that aims to protect human lives, but abortion advocates are fighting against it using the same old failed argument of “what about the kids in foster care?” Well, Alabama families have a very clear answer to that question. Governor Kay Ivey announced at the end of 2018 that a record number of children were adopted from foster care in Alabama and placed in forever homes....

She was arrested on April 22 at her home on 3rd Street in Coachella, where authorities found even more dogs living in a home that was in a severe state of disrepair. A total of 38 dogs were confiscated from the home and taken to the Coachella Valley Animal Campus in Thousand Palms. Images from the...

    The false promise of “safe, legal, and rare” made living with the evil of abortion seem tolerable to so many Americans. Cut to thunderous applause (minute 1:18) in New York over legislation making it common and profitable, all the way up until the moment of birth.As noted by The New York Times: “if liberal social policies really led inexorably to fewer unplanned pregnancies and thus fewer abortions, you would expect ‘blue’ regions of the country to have lower teen pregnancy rates and fewer abortions per capita than demographically similar ‘red’ regions…But that isn’t what the data show…liberal policies don’t...

    Conservative media personality Glen Beck dismantled a popular pro-abortion myth in a short, simple tweet over the weekend. Beck was accused of being “pro-birth” after sharing a article about Hollywood actresses hosting a party to celebrate their abortions. It is a common attack lobbed at pro-life advocates, but it is ridiculously false. Offering no evidence to support her claim, a Twitter user named Carol Valentine told Beck: “When those who yell about the rights of the unborn child actually step up to care for that child throughout the child’s life, then I will feel that those protesters are actually...

    Actress Amber Tamblyn confessed in a recent public appearance that she considered giving her unborn baby girl away to Canadians following the election of Donald Trump. Amber Tamblyn told attendees at Vulture Fest’s “Feminist AF” panel in Los Angeles Sunday how she felt like giving her baby away on election night 2016. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: ‘A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a...

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...
