Family Research Council recommends and supports Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Acts (CWPIAs) because children and families are best served in a country where faith-based adoption and foster care agencies are allowed to remain open and operate according to their sincerely-held religious beliefs. CWPIAs prevent government discrimination against such agencies.
- CWPIAs defend adoption and foster care agencies from government discrimination based on protected beliefs.
- Forcing child welfare agencies to either violate their beliefs, close their doors, or serve in a significantly more limited capacity is detrimental to the children and families these agencies serve.
- Since 2010, 41 CWPIAs have been introduced in 18 states.
