Terry Schilling, executive director of the American Principles Project, praised the new proposed rule in a statement released Nov. 1.

“For decades, faith-based adoption and foster care agencies have played a critical role in providing for our nation’s children in need of new homes. Until recently, the idea of the government assisting these groups in their work was completely uncontroversial,” Schilling said.

“Incredibly, however, states and localities like Michigan and Philadelphia have lately begun to demand these groups violate their consciences or lose all support, as did the Obama administration. Amid a nationwide foster care crisis, this ideological grandstanding is utterly unconscionable.”

Schilling commended President Trump for “taking this important action” and putting “the needs of children and the protection of religious liberty above politics.”
