A bill to ban discrimination against LGBTQ adoptive and foster families was introduced in the House.

The Every Child Deserves a Family Act would ban discrimination against LGBTQ people who want to adopt or foster a child by agencies that receive federal money.

The bill would also ban conversion therapy for minors in the child welfare system.

“Too many children dream of a stable, loving family,” Representative John Lewis (D-GA) said in a statement.

“Many adults want to open their homes and their hearts, but they also are facing more and more barriers, because some officials can say they practice the wrong religion, love the wrong person, or are not married.”
