Shame on you, AZ

Standard

In April, Governor Jan Brewer signed SB1188 into law, adding to the list of anti-gay legislation dictating the lives of lesbian and gay couples residing in AZ.
Brewer also eliminated state employees option to add domestic partners to their health insurance coverage.

Add that to the already nonsensical laws in place that do not allow lesbian and gay couples to adopt children together.  The one allowed legal parent must draw up expensive documents for their partner’s parenting rights.   The non-legal parent is not allowed to put that adopted child on their health insurance, seek medical care for their child, or is even often times required to have a permission slip from the legal parent to pick the child up from school!  
It’s discrimination!  It’s nonsense!  And it’s disguised under the lie that ‘It’s in the best interest of the child’ !

But who can blame our legislators when they believe they are mandated by God to pass these laws.

“God has placed me in this powerful position as Arizona’s governor’ to help the state weather its troubles.”  ~Jan Brewer~
