ACTION ALERT: IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED

Rep. Scott Sanford

Insiders in the Capitol tell us that this afternoon, SUNDAY, MAY 24TH, Rep. Scott Sanford (R-McKinney) will try yet again to pass an amendment allowing child welfare agencies to discriminate against LGBT couples who want to provide loving homes for children who need them.
Oppose the Sanford amendment permitting discrimination in Texas’ child welfare system.

This cynical “religious refusal” amendment would authorize all child welfare organizations to refuse to place a child with a qualified family just because that family doesn’t meet the organization’s religious or moral criteria.

If enacted into law, it would allow child welfare providers to discriminate against not just gay and transgender families, but also against people of other faiths, interfaith couples and anyone else to whom a provider objects for religious reasons.
Urge your State Representative to OPPOSE the Sanford Amendment to SB200.
