The Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of foster mothers Sharonell Fulton and Toni Simms-Busch in the case, Sharonell Fulton, et al. v. City of Philadelphia. This decision is a victory for the religious liberty of faith-based adoption and foster care agencies like those run by Catholic Social Services. 

Senior Fellow Ashley McGuire praised the ruling, saying, “Those agencies have become the latest victim of woke culture as activists seek to push them out of the adoption and foster care space because of their religious values. Those efforts are rooted in an anti-Catholic bigotry that refuses to tolerate pluralistic views and beliefs. Thankfully, the Supreme Court has put an end to efforts to close down and cancel the faith-based agencies whose work on behalf of marginalized children is invaluable.”

Ashley’s statement appeared in a range of outlets including the Washington Times, the Daily CallerCNS News, and Catholic News Agency.
