A mother of five from Oregon alleges that her gender-related religious convictions prevented her from adopting two siblings in her state, and she is now suing to defend her First Amendment rights.

Jessica Bates said on Wednesday that the difficulty started after she had been in the adoption process for a few months and had successfully finished some of the training.

“I reported to my certifier because they really emphasized the sexual orientation and gender identity training, that you have to support it… I emailed her and told her I couldn’t do that because of my faith, and then we had a phone call and, because I wouldn’t take a child for cross-sex hormone injections, I was basically told that I’m ineligible to adopt in the state of Oregon,” said Bates.

The adoption application for Oregon states that prospective parents must “respect, accept and support the sexual orientation, gender identity, [and] gender expression” of children.

The state’s actions, according to Christina Kiefer, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, are just another instance of placing “ideology and politics over children.”

“It [the state] says that it welcomes people from all cultural and religious backgrounds to adopt unless they disagree with the state’s gender ideology… Barring Jessica and other parents from adopting just because of their religious convictions clearly violates the First Amendment. It’s wrong, and it hurts children who need a forever home,” Kiefer said.
