BREAKING Victory for Religious Freedom, as the US Supreme Court Sides with 200-Year-Old Catholic Social Services Foster Parent Program
Victory for religious freedom, as the Supreme Court unanimously rules that the state can’t shut down a Catholic adoption agency that would not compromise its Christian beliefs. In 2018, the city of Philadelphia canceled its contracts with Catholic Social Services due to its religious beliefs about marriage, removing hundreds of children in the process.

City of Philadelphia will protect vulnerable children’s profound interest in finding and forming families by ensuring that they will have access to more, not fewer, prospective adoptive parents.”

“I am grateful to the Supreme Court for upholding religious liberty. At a time when we are facing a shortage of foster homes, it’s imperative we have all hands on deck to combat this crisis. Today, the Supreme Court’s decision made that possible.” -- Melissa Buck
