Washington, DC, May 20, 2016—Two new proposed laws in South Carolina—one to discriminate against transgender people (S. 1306) and the other to roll back abortion rights (H. 3114)—are being condemned as a “draconian combo” by the National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund.

“These proposed laws are clearly a draconian combo, designed to both advance discrimination against transgender people who want the simple human dignity of using the bathroom and to blatantly remove vital constitutional reproductive rights. We urge the South Carolina legislature to reject S. 1306, and for Governor Nikki Haley to veto H. 3114 and restore sanity to the Palmetto State,” said Candace Bond-Theriault, Policy Counsel, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund.
