Las Vegas SUN: A question of religious rights
The foster mother, known to the Pugh family only as “Heidi,” wants to adopt the girl and has taken her to a Latter-day Saints church and has allegedly taught the girl about the religion.
“This is not my religion,” Pugh said.
While the mother’s identity is confidential, workers in the foster care system confirmed that the foster mother wants to adopt the girl and has taken her to church services.
Under Nevada state law, birth parents have the right to choose a child’s religious affiliation even when the child is taken from their custody.
