(HARRISBURG, PA) The following statement can be attributed to Michael Geer, President of the Pennsylvania Family Institute, in response to several bills that passed from the floor of the PA House of Representatives today that would have a chilling effect on individual freedoms moving forward:
House Bills 1024, 1025, and 1027 would create a new arbitrary system of wide-reaching criminal penalties that threaten Pennsylvania citizens. These proposals could demonize and even blacklist those who hold opposing views on areas of sexuality, marriage, and what it means to be male and female. This is state-sanctioned discrimination in some of its worst forms.
Pennsylvania Family Institute is the state’s leading pro-family policy organization
