A leaked draft of President Trump's anti-LGBT executive order has been circulating and was reported on by The Nation today. It's even worse than many feared. Not only does it provide a sweeping license to discriminate, it guts women's healthcare. Read the article at The Nation.
Under the guise of protecting religious “freedom,” the order is so broad that it permits people working at any organization, including closely held for-profit corporations, to discriminate against someone who lives their life in a way that’s in conflict with another person’s notion of morality. The only “freedom” advanced by this order is the freedom to oppress, the freedom to discriminate and the freedom to harm others.
While gutting women’s healthcare by de-funding contraceptive services the order protects federally funded healthcare providers who consider their religious belief to be more important than the medical needs of their patients.
TAKE ACTION: If you’re in Los Angeles, join us at Los Angeles City Hall at 6 p.m. the same day the order is announced to stand together and fight to take back our equality. Many expect the order to be signed on Thursday, Feb 2.
