Accepting pro-LGBT views is now a requirement for adopting children in Oregon

Robbie Newport

It would seem Oregon would welcome stable and loving homes and parents to adopt and foster children when the need is so great to find homes for thousands of orphaned children, yet this assumption would be wrong. A recent case involving a widowed Oregonian mother trying to adopt two siblings shows what the state really thinks is important, that is, agreeing with pro-LGBTQ views.

A CBN article written by Steve Warren on April 6, 2023, details the case of Jessica Bates, a widowed mother of five children who went through the application process to adopt two siblings only to be told first she was “…required to adopt the state’s pro-LGBT views on sexuality.”

These requirements include supporting the child’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity, using the child’s preferred pronouns, facilitating an adolescent’s access to medical interventions (puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones), and taking the children to Pride parades.

The Oregon mother said she wouldn’t be able to adopt these values because they go against her Christian faith, which caused her adoption process to be denied. Now she is filing a lawsuit against the state with the help of Alliance Defending Freedom.

Essentially, unless parents adopt LGBT values, they are now ineligible to adopt or foster children in Oregon. This is now what Oregon stands for when it comes to values.

When Oregon stands for these types of perverse and discriminatory values, it is no wonder so many Oregonians want to be part of Idaho or simply move away from what has turned into a radical liberal state that blatantly discriminates against Christians.
