The 400K member American Bar Association took a stand this week on LGBT rights.
Gay Star News reports:
At its annual meeting in Boston this week, the American Bar Association officially adopted a policy recognizing the rights of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender as basic human rights. A four paragraph resolution passed by the association’s 560-member House of Delegates condemns laws, regulations, rules and practices that discriminate against LGBT people on the basis of their status and encourages the US government to work to end this discrimination.
The ABA is a powerful ally, especially since most of the battles for LGBT rights in the US are now being fought in the courts.
