Kansas Legislature approves Adoption Protection Act
TOPEKA – The Kansas House of Representatives and Senate on Friday, May 4, approved the Adoption Protection Act. Gov. Jeff Colyer has promised to sign the bill into law when it reaches his desk.
This legislation will protect religiously motivated adoption providers like Catholic Charities from attack by hostile government agencies and political activists, which has unfortunately happened in other states. Faith based adoption providers in Kansas will now be protected in their work serving the common good.
Catholic Charities does not have an adoption service in the Diocese of Wichita, however.

The Mission of the Laity: That the lay faithful may fulfil their specific mission, by responding with creativity to the challenges that face the world today.
