Congressman Ralph Abraham

Representing the 5th District of Louisiana

Abraham votes against Equality Act

May 17, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON - Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., R-Alto, voted against HR 5, known as the Equality Act. His statement is below:

"Despite its name, the so-called Equality Act places in jeopardy the rights of religious organizations and infringes upon their deeply held beliefs. Plus, it also included pro-abortion language that I won’t tolerate. There is nothing equal about assaulting the rights of people of faith, and I voted against it," Abraham said.
