Chair, Committee on Government Operations Senator Randy Richardville
Oppose the Senate Bill 518 the Julea Ward freedom of conscience act

Allowing this bill to pass would allow any person or persons in the Social Work, Psychology or Health care profession to discriminate against people if it violates their religious beliefs. The effects of this bill becoming a law, could cause people who have had, a divorce, an abortion or who has a different faith then the professional or is of a different race or ethnicity to be denied services, as well as the LGBT community. This bill will allow health care professionals to legally discriminate. We as concerned citizens ask that you allow this bill to die in congress.
