Note: When using any of the suggested tweets, don’t forget to replace the first word with your elected official’s Twitter username!
Religious Refusals in Healthcare

Religious Discrimination in Adoption & Foster Care
.@ELECTED-OFFICIAL In 10 states, religious child placement agencies receive taxpayer funding even as they discriminate against LGBTQ people, atheists, and religious minorities. This prevents children from being placed in safe and loving homes. End this state-sponsored discrimination! #AtheistsENGAGE
.@ELECTED-OFFICIAL End state-sponsored discrimination against LGBTQ couples! No state should put religion above the safety and welfare of children. Repeal [State’s] law that allows religious foster and adoption agencies to discriminate with state funds. #AtheistsENGAGE
.@ELECTED-OFFICIAL Every child deserves a safe and loving home! Don’t let religious foster and adoption agencies discriminate against LGBTQ, atheist, or religous minority couples! #AtheistsENGAGE #LicenseToDiscriminate
.@ELECTED-OFFICIAL End the dangerous and discredited practice of conversion therapy! #AtheistsENGAGE #BornThisWay
.@ELECTED-OFFICIAL Being LGBTQ is not an illness. Brainwashing and abuse is not treatment. End conversion therapy! #AtheistsENGAGE
