An Inclusive Litany

5/22/00

President Clinton issued an executive order banning discrimination against parents, step-parents, foster parents, custodians of legal wards, and people "actively seeking legal custody or adoption" of children. The order would prohibit employers from "taking a mother or father off a career-advancing path out of a belief that parents cannot meet the requirements of these jobs." The White House could cite no examples of this sort of discrimination occurring.
