Collins says navigating an unplanned pregnancy is difficult enough without the possibility of faith-based agencies having to close for lack of funding or worse yet, government intervention. Collins writes, "Birth parents deserve to have their voices heard." "Our country was founded on the basis of religious freedom, and within that freedom are the rights of faith-based agencies to represent a birth mother's religious beliefs," she said. "Removing faith-based agencies in Colorado may create unnecessary fears, anxiety and possible depression for birth mothers who already face a difficult decision."
