Trump Admin To Make It Easier For Adoption Agencies To Reject Gay Parents, More Obama-Era Rules Rollback

Axios reports:

The Trump administration will soon make it easier for adoption agencies to reject same-sex couples, senior administration officials told Axios. President Trump is steadily rolling back Obama-era nondiscrimination policies across the entire federal government — including health care, housing and the military.

Details: Former President Obama banned adoption and foster-care agencies from receiving federal funding if they refused to work with same-sex couples. Religious organizations have consistently bristled at that policy, arguing that they’re being forced to contradict their beliefs.

Trump alluded to this issue at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this year, but did not announce a formal policy. The process is now far enough along that an announcement could happen by early July, the officials said.
