Ah, Texas!

The U.S. Lab for Bad Policy

Guys, Gov. Abbott is at it again:

Texas social workers can now turn away LGBTQ clients and those with a disability.

The state Board of Social Work Examiners voted unanimously to change a section of its code of conduct last week following a recommendation from Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, to remove protections for sexual orientation, gender identity and disability. Abbott’s office said the change was suggested because the board’s nondiscrimination clause went beyond the state’s policy on social work, according to The Associated Press.

I guess Abbott is getting ready to celebrate Judge Coathangers ascension to the Supreme Court, because this is surely headed her way. It’s weird tho, because Abbott himself is disabled, but he pulled himself up by his own wheelchair, I guess.

  1. Can these clients now turn away their state taxes? After all they are helping to pay for those social workers.

    And what’s the deal with disabled people being turned away? Have the fundagelicals gone full eugenics (for the already born, of course)

    This explicitly violates the National Association of Social Work’s code of ethics. All of these social workers involved in stripping these protections should lose their licenses and be kicked out of the profession.

    What exactly is the state’s policy on social work? Must LGBTQ clients wear a ping triangle and the disabled clients wear black triangles tattooed to their forehead or what??
