You’ve probably heard that yesterday the TN Senate started off the legislative session by passing a bill which targets LGBT people and allows state-supported adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBT people.
The bill will now head to Governor Lee’s desk, and Lee has said he will sign it.
What you may not know is Governor Lee’s own sister is married to a woman, and therefore is a part of the LGBT community targeted by his party’s bill.
Here’s @ScoopNashville’s tweet about Cynthia Lee’s wedding:
And here’s Cynthia Lee with Bill’s wife Maria outside his campaign headquarters in Franklin:
Tennessee is #1 in medical bankruptcies, #2 in rural hospital closures, gets an “F” in education funding, and has the maternal mortality rate of a third world country… yet this is what the TN GOP and Bill Lee are focused on?
Here’s how they voted — GREEN means they voted for the bill. Red against.
Cynthia and her wife deserve to be treated just like everyone else in America, and should not be targeted and made to feel less than by our laws.
This adoption bill is especially ugly because it would have the effect of robbing loving homes from children who might otherwise not be able to find one.
If you agree Governor Lee should VETO THIS BILL, Holler at him HERE.
