Message and Call to Action from the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference
Governor Tom Wolf is preventing a network of Catholic adoption providers, commonly known as SWAN (Statewide Adoption Network), from maintaining the ability to uphold its religious convictions that placements should not be made within the context of same-sex parent households.
Speaker of the House of Representatives Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) announced yesterday that he supports a religious exemption be codified in state law so that faith-based adoption and foster care agencies can continue to provide vital services to children in Pennsylvania while upholding their deeply held religious beliefs.
Please urge your representative, senator, or Governor Wolf to grant religious exemption on the same-sex parent requirement for Catholic adoption providers. Contact information for Governor Wolf can be found at https://www.governor.pa.gov/contact/#OnlineForm.
