This bill allows religious adoption agencies to refuse child placement to families who do not share their religious beliefs. While this will most likely discriminate against same-sex couples, there is a possibility that a religious agency could refuse an interfaith or non-religious couple, single parents, or even a couple with one parent who was previously divorced.

The ACLU of Alabama is interested in talking with people adversely affected by this new law, particularly children who are being denied placement in willing homes because of the law.
