Michigan Senate Advances ‘License To Discriminate’ Healthcare Bill

The Michigan Senate approved a “license to discriminate” bill today that would allow healthcare providers to discriminate against patients if it violates their “religious beliefs, moral convictions, or ethical principles.” It’s one of many anti-women and anti-LGBT bills state Republican lawmakers are trying to sneak through during the lame duck session. In the House, a similar pair of bills would allow adoption agencies to discriminate against same-sex couples without losing state funding.
