A group of Republican attorneys general, led by Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, is challenging a new proposed rule by the Department of Health and Human Services that they argue would discriminate against Christian families in the foster care system.

They assert that the rule, which mandates the use of a foster child’s identified pronouns and gender identity, would limit available foster homes, risk kinship placements, and increase costs for states.

The attorneys general emphasize the importance of faith-based organizations in the foster care system and urge the federal government to focus on increasing the number of foster homes rather than decreasing them. (Trending: Greta Thunberg Caught on Video Going Full Anti-Semite)

The attorneys argued that the proposed rule “will harm children by limiting the number of available foster homes, harm families by risking kinship placements, and harm states by increasing costs and decreasing care options.”

“These injuries will be suffered while HHS fails to solve a problem that the proposed rule does not even prove exists in foster care,” the AGs write.

The rule, Safe and Appropriate Foster Care Placement Requirements, would require foster parents/families use a foster child’s “identified pronouns, chosen name, and allow the child to dress in an age-appropriate manner that the child believes reflects their self-identified gender identity and expression.”

According to the letter, the rule “seeks to accomplish indirectly what the Supreme Court found unconstitutional just two years ago: remove faith-based providers from the foster care system if they will not conform their religious beliefs on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

The 19 attorneys wrote, “caring for children in need is a duty of the Christian faith.”

“The foster care system depends on individuals and organizations of faith,” the letter argues.

“The federal government should be searching for ways to increase the number of foster homes, not decrease them,” they said.
