Human rights advocates and celebrities are calling on the governor to veto SB 1140, dangerous anti-LGBTQ legislation that would allow publicly-funded adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ prospective parents, single mothers and interfaith couples, among others. Children shouldn’t pay the cost of discrimination and neither should taxpayers. That’s unacceptable.  

As Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin considers whether to veto SB 1140, voices speaking out against the bill include some of the most recognizable organizations working in the child welfare space, the Tulsa Regional Chamber, a group of Oklahoma-based and national faith leaderseditorial boards and more.
