News Release: Michigan Catholic Conference Statement Regarding Second-Parent Adoption Legislation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(LANSING)—Michigan Catholic Conference Vice-President for Public Policy Paul A. Long released the following statement today regarding the introduction of House Bill 4259, legislation that would amend state law to allow for second-parent adoptions:

“Public policy in Michigan regarding adoption must be crafted within the framework of marriage and the traditional family structure. While recognizing those married couples unable to bring children into their lives, the Michigan Catholic Conference believes the presence of a married mother and father is the optimal setting for the education and growth of children.”

Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.
