Comments

Ron Q writes:

This seems to possibly limit one's religious beliefs and spiritual beliefs when it seems no proven need for this remedy exists. Are there
rampant examples of such discrimination leading to problems? I am against the bill.

JoAnne Norton writes:

I think there is discrrimination. And if this lawmaker has submitted this bill, I think she found good basis for it.
