Discrimination Against Catholic Humanitarian Services

For decades, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) has carried out the commitment of the U.S. Bishops to serve and advocate for refugees, asylees, and other forced migrants, immigrants, and other people on the move. However, despite many years of excellent performance by MRS in administering contract services for victims of human trafficking, in 2011, the federal government changed its contract specifications to require MRS to provide or refer for contraceptive and abortion “services” in violation of Catholic teaching. In 2013, an appeals court vacated this terrible decision.
Among many current challenges, the federal government has discriminated against Catholic humanitarian services based on their religious beliefs, even when those beliefs had no impact on performance.

DISCRIMINATION AGAINST CATHOLIC ADOPTION SERVICES

Local Catholic Charities agencies around the country have long provided adoption and foster care services to the neediest children. Catholic Charities agencies often take on the most difficult placements, including older, abused children and children with disabilities and special needs. When placing children with couples, Catholic Charities makes sure those children enjoy the advantage of having a mom and a dad who are married. The following Catholic Adoption Agencies have closed their doors to avoid placing children in same sex couples: Boston 2006, San Francisco 2006, Washington DC 2010, and Illinois 2011. Notify your congressmen to support legislation called the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act of 2015 (S. 667 / H.R. 1299) has recently been introduced in both Houses of Congress to try to remedy this problem and ensure that no adoption agencies are excluded from serving the most vulnerable children in our society.
