There are moves to introduce the most oppressive laws ever proposed for Tasmania in the form of Conversion Suppression legislation – with the Premier’s support.
The Tasmanian Law Institute recently released a Report that recommends far-reaching restrictions on your biblical beliefs and even your private conversations on gender and sexuality.
Parents, pastors, medical practitioners, and all Tasmanians would effectively be banned from helping anyone who is struggling with sexuality or gender confusion. If you do, you could be criminalised and deemed a child abuser.
While ACL does not support any coercive interference with a person’s life, the Report’s recommendations disregard freedom of speech, religion and parental rights. Furthermore, there are many problems with the report, which you can read here.
Please email the Premier, Deputy Premier, Attorney-General, and your MPs to ask them to conduct a proper inquiry before taking any steps to implement the oppressive laws recommended by the Tasmanian Law Reform Institute.
This is moving quickly so please send your email immediately and share this urgent matter with other Tasmanians.
