Illinois judge rejects Catholic Charities appeal on adoption contracts

September 27, 2011

An Illinois judge has rejected an appeal by Catholic Charities for reconsideration of his decision allowing the state government to end contracts with the Catholic agencies for adoption and foster-care services.

The Catholic Charities agencies are losing their contracts because they cannot comply with new state regulations requiring equal treatment for same-sex couples. The cancellation of contracts will have a devastating effect on funding for the Church-run agencies.

Catholic Charities leaders said that they would appeal the ruling.
