Trans rights are under attack again by the Religious Right in Ohio. After Republican Gov. Mike DeWine (hardly known as a radical) made the right call to veto a discriminatory bill, HB 68, the call to override the veto is rising. FFRF Action Fund is asking you to help protect the rights of children and their parents to make decisions involving bodily autonomy by asking your state rep not to override the veto. Take action today!
HB 68 would ban all gender-affirming care for children, even if parents and physicians agree that it would be best for the child, while also banning transgender girls from playing sports. The bill parades itself as “protecting children from experimentation,” but the true goal is to enforce gender norms that are based on religious dogma. Doctors and parents will be unable to decide on the best care for their patients and children. Don’t let the church make medical decisions for Ohio children.
The override could happen very soon, so it’s vital to act today. Please contact your state representative and urge them to stand with the veto! We’ve provided suggested language which you can customize to your liking. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
(Note: You must live in Ohio to take part in this action alert.)
