Anti-gay organization One Million Moms is already upset over Jennifer Lopez's new TV show, which won't be airing for a while.

Upon discovering that Lopez's ABC Family pilot "The Fosters" was about "two women raising a '21st century,' multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids," One Million Moms started a campaign to stop the show from airing.

Obviously, ABC has lost their minds," the organization posted in a statement on its website. "One Million Moms is not sure how the explanation will be given on how the biological children were conceived. None of this material is acceptable content for a family show ... Let's stop this dead in it its tracks."

Teri Polo and Sherri Saum have been cast as the Stef and Lena Foster in the ABC Family drama pilot. Recently, it was revealed that Maia Mitchell has been cast as Callie, a troubled teen with an abusive past who Lena decides to take in, and David Lambert joins the pilot as Brandon, Stef's biological son.

This isn't the first time the anti-gay organization has boycotted a show based simply on its description this year.One Million Moms started a full-fledged protest before Ryan Murphy's "The New Normal" aired on NBC.

"The silly part is that no one has seen it," Andrew Rannells, the show's star, told PrideSource. "So what that boycott is based on is a two-line description of what they read this show was about and, just based on that alone, they're upset. That's disappointing because ultimately, what the show is about is how much love it takes to start a family -- and not just our family."
