Vote NO on HB1840--the Counseling Discrimination bill.

This petition had 413 supporters

On Feb. 9 at 1:30 the TN House Health Subcommittee may consider HB1840, which would allow counselors to opt out of serving clients based on the counselor's sincerely held religious beliefs. Laws should be designed to protect the client, which is the current priority of the current code of ethics for counselors. This bill allows the agenda of the counselor to become dominant. It adds stigma to a situation in which a client is seeking help. This bill seems designed to target the LGBT community.
