A lot has happened this week. One state’s governor vetoed an anti-gay bill, other states began considering these kinds of right-to-deny-service bills, the FDA reviewed 3-person DNA technology, and a judge struck down another state’s ban on same-sex marriage.
Welcome to the second edition of “Weekly Roundup.”
Arizona Vetoes Anti-Gay Bill
A bill that would have allowed Arizona businesses to deny service to LGBT patrons out of religious conviction has been laid to rest. The “Religious Freedom” bill was vetoed by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday. The proposed legislation galvanized quite the debate. Opponents said that it encourages discrimination against gays while supporters argued that it protected for religious freedom. Currently, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, and Missouri are considering similar bills.
