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.
