The Conference supports legislation that promotes strong, stable and healthy families. It also supports legislation that promotes adoption and provides resources for adoptive families.
The Church recognizes the basic family unit - mother, father, and children - as the foundation given by nature to all human society and future generations.
Public policies should give priority to promoting marriage, keeping families intact, and to providing all children with a stable, healthy, and nurturing home.
All families raising children, whether they are headed by biological, adoptive, or single parents, grandparents or guardians, must have access to decent jobs and family-friendly work environments, good schools, and the basic necessities of food, clothing, housing and healthcare.
