South Dakota’s governor, Dennis Daugaard, signed to pass a bill that protects religious rights of child-placement agencies (adoption agencies, orphanages, organizations that place kids in foster homes, etc.).
The bill states:
“No child-placement agency may be required to provide any service that conflicts with, or provide any service under circumstances that conflict with any sincerely-held religious belief or moral conviction of the child-placement agency.”
However, the LGBT community feels targeted and discriminated against.
See some news article headlines that agree:
The bill does not state anything about gay or transgender individuals.
