Human Rights Campaign calls on Gov. Mike Pence to Veto SB 101
HRC Blog: HRC To Indiana House and Governor Pence: Stop the Anti-LGBT, Anti-Business Bill Before It’s Too Late
”HRC also called on Governor Pence to veto the bill if it makes it to his desk. The so-called “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” allows people to use religion as an excuse to challenge or opt out of various laws, including state and local laws that protect minorities and LGBT people from discrimination.
“This bill dangerously allows people to pick and choose which laws they want to follow and which ones they don’t,” said HRC National Field Director Marty Rouse. “Religious freedom is important - that’s why it’s protected in our Constitution - but this bill is not about the right of people to practice their religion. It’s about undermining basic civil rights laws and subjecting countless Hoosiers to discrimination. All people in Indiana deserve to be treated fairly and equally and should have to play by the same set of rules. We urge the House to vote this bill down and call on Governor Pence to do the right thing and veto this bill if it makes it to his desk.”
