NO To SB 17 - Don't Wield Religion To Discriminate
There's a bill coming up for its hearing this morning in the Senate State Affairs Committee that would protect licensed professionals who want to impose their personal religious beliefs in their work with patients and clients. Bills like this are what are commonly known as "religious exemptions."
SB 17 is bad for Texans when it means that services can be denied to them simply because of someone else's religious beliefs. We have to reject policies that wield religion to discriminate.
We're joining the call along with many other organizations speaking out against this bad bill.
ACTION for 3/25/2019:
You can take action today by contacting members of the Senate State Affairs Committee and telling them you don't support this bill and that policies that potentially hurt LGBTQ Texans should be an automatic 'no'.
