美国最大领养机构取消同性领养禁令

据《纽约时报》(The New York Times) 3月1日报道,美国最大领养机构Bethany Christian Services的首席执行官克里斯·帕罗斯卡(首席执行官Chris Palusky)给全美员工发送邮件,宣布允许同性伴侣领养儿童。

该机构公共事务部高级副总裁尼森·巴特(Nathan Bult)随后在一份声明中表示,他们从未动摇使命,始终致力于向人们展示“耶稣对孩子和家庭的爱与同情”。该机构曾在2018年时拒绝过一对想要领养孩子的女同伴侣,她们坚持上诉至最高法院,最终胜诉。有消息称,机构高层们曾因“是否允许性少数群体”领养的问题进行多次内部讨论,许多高管因此离职。据当地LGBT组织预测,之后几个月内该机构会对员工进行性少数知识培训,以便更好的服务LGBT群体。

According to a report from The New York Times on March 1, the CEO of Bethany Christian Services, the largest adoption agency in the United States, Chris Palusky (CEO Chris Palusky) sent an email to employees across the United States announcing that same-sex was allowed. The partner adopts the child.

The agency’s senior vice president of public affairs, Nathan Bult, subsequently said in a statement that they have never wavered in their mission and are always committed to showing people “Jesus’ love and compassion for children and family”. The agency rejected a pair of lesbian couples who wanted to adopt a child in 2018. They insisted on appealing to the Supreme Court and eventually won. It is reported that the senior executives of the agency have had many internal discussions on the issue of whether to allow the adoption of sexual minorities, and many senior executives have resigned as a result. According to the prediction of the local LGBT organization, in the next few months, the organization will train its employees on sexual minority knowledge in order to better serve the LGBT community.
