    I sent Gov. Haslam a lengthy message entitled, “Please VETO HB1840” this morning.

    As a hospital based social worker for over 25 years I attempted to explain that client needs are more important than the personal or religious belief systems than mental health providers.

    I gave him specific examples of how clients with HIV/AIDS in the 80’s and 90’s were discriminated against in those early days of the crisis. I also told him of witnessing discrimination against a transgender woman in an ER where I worked. ER doctors simply refused to see her. They kept skipping over her chart—making fun of her as she sat waiting to be seen in the examination room. After hours of waiting she finally left the ER without being seen. Finally, I told him of the LGBT students I work with at a Tennessee Baptist affiliated school in Jefferson City. If mental health providers at the school are allowed to refer these students to other providers due to their personal, religious beliefs, then these students will have little or no options for services.

    I’m hopeful that he (or his aides) will read my note to him.
