About the Catholic charities question

Just in case I missed some other response to Toni's assertion, here's more on it.
Catholic adoption services ended
Basically, the state of Illinois was recently in the news for this. A new law in that state required that all licensed adoption agencies not exclude gay couples as candidates for foster care or adoption. Catholic Social Services runs an adoption program as would be fitting for its desire to stop abortion. The state of Illinois would contract out adoption services. Thus, it also paid the majority of the costs. The catholic charity would not accept the new rule and made the decision to end adoption services in that state. It may have happened elsewhere or it could be coming to your state as well. Catholic Charities did not shut down...only the adoption service so far.
