Kansas may be heading to court over proposed foster care regulations introduced by the state’s Democratic governor and an ally to homosexual activists in The Sunflower State.
Kelly made headlines in June after caving to a lawsuit filed by transgenders to legally alter their drivers license, proclaiming that Kansas had moved past its “discriminatory, anti-transgender policy.”
Now comes news that Kelly is overseeing new rules at the Department for Children and Families for “prudent parenting" of transgender children who are in foster care, NBC News reported in an August 6 story.
Citing state officials, the story said final guidelines are expected by the end of August.
Reacting to the governor’s push, Brittany Jones of the Kansas Family Institute points out the real-life scenario of a male foster children who demands to sleep in the same bedroom as a family’s daughters.
And there are other eye-opening plans, too, such as requiring a foster parents to call children by their preferred pronoun even if they object.
“It also requires child placement agencies to comply with this policy,” she warns, “and actually hide the true biological identity of the child from the potential foster family.”
According to the NBC News story, the coming changes are described as “principles for placement” and not a formal policy change, so the planned changes --- which aren’t be described as changes --- won’t be subject to scrutiny by the Republican-led legislature
Jones tells OneNewsNow that Kansas currently follows an Adoption Protection Act that was put in place to protect faith-based adoption agencies from the exact policies Gov. Kelly is demanding.
The NBC News mentions the law and says conservative lawmakers view it as an attempt to skirt the law that Kelly opposes.
“That is definitely ripe for a lawsuit,” Jones says of the governor’s new rules, “and potentially it's ripe for a lawsuit in the way that it effects families as well.”
