Supreme Court with 6-3 Landmark Decision on LGBTQ Rights
Today was a really good day for humanity in the United States.
The United States Supreme Court had a landmark decision 6-3 for LGBTQ rights in America.
On Monday morning, they ruled that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal to fire an employee for being transgender or gay.
The 6-3 ruling showed support from both conservative and liberal judges to do the right thing for humanity and keep politics out of the equation.
Of course, this decision won't come without critics but the positive thing is so many people have opened their hearts and minds to a wonderful part of the population who previously weren't represented appropriately.
Last week the Trump administration moved to try and restrict health care for the transgender population under the Affordable Care Act but this ruling will most likely halt all of that as well.
With all the bad news in this country over the last few months from the COVID-19 pandemic to civil unrest after multiple police brutality incidents, this marks a tremendous day for the country and a feel-good story we can all get behind.
I have long advocated for the LGBTQ community and I couldn't be filled with more joy for so many Americans who now can finally know their rights will be protected.
