Demand LGBTQ Couples Be Given the Right to Adopt Children

Target: Jeff Sessions, Attorney General of the United States

Goal: Support the right of LGBTQ couples to legally adopt children.

Legislators in both Kansas and Oklahoma recently passed measures that allow faith-based adoption agencies to refuse to allow LGBTQ couples to adopt children. State lawmakers claim the act is an exercise in religious freedoms, while the many opponents of the bills, including some Kansas GOP members, say the move is just another attack on civil rights. The law is a clear move by lawmakers to legislate the lives of anyone who doesn’t identify as straight, something which is unacceptable in 2018.

The Supreme Court has made several rulings upholding the human rights of LGBTQ citizens, meaning that there is no place in this country for legalized bigotry. Attacks like these only further serve to divide communities and create tension within places that should only seek unity and peace. Sign the petition below to demand equal adoption rights for all citizens, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Sessions,

Now, more than ever, we need our country united under common goals and strengths. We cannot afford to keep dividing our citizens into classes of “worthy” and “unworthy.” Laws like the ones proposed in Oklahoma and Kansas, that strip LGBTQ couples of their rights to start and raise a family, only serve to carry out archaic views of sexuality and repress an entire population of people.

There is no evidence to support that LGBTQ parents would make worse parents than straight couples or that the children will “adapt their lifestyle,” so why do we keep making laws that pretend this evidence exists? Do the right thing and demand a repeal of these heinous crimes against human rights.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
