Ros-Lehtinen, colleagues condemn ‘Anti-Homosexual Bill’ introduced in Uganda’s parliament

U.S. Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Miami; Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisconsin; Gary Ackerman, D-NY; and Howard Berman, D-Calif., sent this letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:

“We write to raise serious concerns about the "Anti-Homosexual Bill" introduced in Uganda's parliament earlier this month. This egregious bill represents one of the most extreme anti-equality measures ever proposed in any country and would create a legal pretext for depriving lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Ugandans of their liberty, and even their lives.”

Here’s the complete letter:
