Arkansas governor signs law allowing doctors to refuse treatment to LGBTQ people

Just a day after Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson became the second U.S. governor to sign an anti-trans sports bill this year, he signed into law a bill that allows doctors to refuse treatment to anyone because of religious or moral objections. On Friday, Hutchinson signed into law the Medical Ethics and Diversity Act, which allows health care professionals to deny any nonemergency services to patients according to their “conscience.” It also protects health care institutions from “discrimination, punishment, or retaliation as a result of any instance of conscientious medical objection.

Fight over Georgia election reforms now heads from Legislature to new fronts

ATLANTA — The battle over Georgia’s sweeping rewrite of election rules now shifts to the courthouse, the campaign trail and the halls of Congress after Gov. Brian Kemp quickly signed into law the Republican-backed overhaul that imposes new voting restrictions. Voting rights groups filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging the constitutionality of the changes hours after Kemp’s closed-door signing of the measure, claiming they amount to a “grab bag of voting restrictions” that violate the federal Voting Rights Act.

Chris Murphy has never been one to mince words about either the welfare of children or human rights hypocrisy, either at home or abroad. A strong supporter of his fellow Democrat, President Joe Biden, Murphy was candid this weekend in admitting that he was troubled by the scenes he witnessed on a bipartisan congressional tour of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing center in… Read More

Trump Says Ending The Senate Filibuster Would Be ‘Catastrophic’ For Republicans

Former President Donald Trump said that any effort to abolish the Senate filibuster would cause irreparable damage to the Republican Party. Trump discussed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell‘s attempt to fight off talk from progressives to eliminate the longstanding filibuster rule during an interview on the podcast The Truth with Lisa Boothe. “Look, he’s hanging by a thread right now with respect to the filibuster,” Trump said of McConnell. “And if they get the filler, he’s hanging on [Democratic Sen.] Joe Manchin, who always goes with the Democrats. Joe talks, but he ends up going with t… Read More
