Planned Parenthood believes firmly in absolute equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered people everywhere. Here in Pennsylvania, it is an outrage that LGBT individuals can be discriminated against in the workplace, at businesses, by landlords and healthcare providers. We are staunch supporters of the Pennsylvania Non-Discrimination Act HB300.
Things are getting better in Pennsylvania, though. On May 20, 2014, we were thrilled when Pennsylvania Judge John Jones declared the same-sex marriage ban in Pennsylvania to be unconstitutional. The freedom to marry and the protections that come with it are now available to all Pennsylvanians.
