On Friday, South Dakota Governer Dennis Daugaard signed a bill into law that allows taxpayer-funded agencies, including adoption agencies, to refuse services to people for being LGBTQ.

The bill justifies this discrimination on the grounds of religious freedom.

Libby Skarin, Policy Director of the ACLU of South Dakota, said, “In the end, this bill was never about religious freedom. It has always been about allowing private organizations that discriminate to receive state contracts and taxpayer dollars to carry out their religions missions.”
