News Release: Catholic Conference Applauds House for Streamlining Adoption Process

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Lansing)—Michigan Catholic Conference (MCC) released the following comments this afternoon after the Michigan House of Representatives passed a multi-bill legislative package to simplify the adoption process in the state and to address the topic of putative fathers. The comments below may be attributed to Tom Hickson, MCC Vice President for Public Policy and Advocacy:

“Simplifying and streamlining the adoption process in Michigan is a win-win policy for all parties involved, especially the birth mother and her child. By shortening both the consent duration and the supervisory requirements, this legislation will help to develop a greater sense of permanency. The putative father component of the package is also helpful to ensure the child’s father’s rights are respected through the process. Michigan Catholic Conference appreciates the efforts of the bill sponsors and the House majority for moving this legislation through the chamber.”

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