Today, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin signed Senate Bill 1140, the faith-based adoption protection bill. The Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma’s Executive Director-Treasurer Dr. D. Hance Dilbeck, Jr., released the following statement:

“We are grateful to Gov. Fallin and the Oklahoma legislative members who approved Senate Bill 1140, the adoption protection measure. This much-needed bill not only protects and advances religious liberty, it ensures the strength and future of the faith-based adoption and foster care agencies who serve so many children and families in Oklahoma.”
