Senate Judiciary and Labor Passes Bill to Silence Therapists

From Hawaii Family Forum, February 26, 2016

Today, February 26, 2016, the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor passed SB 2615 SD1 that prohibits persons licensed to provide professional counseling from engaging in or advertising sexual orientation change efforts on students and persons under eighteen years of age. ... 

The vote, which we expected was as follows:

  • 3 Ayes: Senators Keith-Agaran, K. Kahele, L. Thielen;
  • 1 No: Senator Gabbard; and
  • 3 Excused: Senators Shimabukuro, Kim, Slom.

The bill will now go to the full Senate floor for a vote. Please contact your Senator and ask them to vote NO on SB 2615 SD1 Relating to Minors. 

If you have not done so already, please sign our online petition.

Assisted Suicide Efforts Failing

Hawaii State Senators showed no interest in hearing the Hawaii version of the PAS bill.  As crossover approaches, it seems likely the bill is dead for this session because the bill was assigned to two committees and neither one scheduled a hearing.  Mahalo to our legislators for talking about better end of life care instead.
