Corbett to express your disappointment and to ask the governor to reconsider his position, in light of his stated position as recent as our 2010 Voter's Guide, and because of the far-reaching threat to religious freedom from such legislation"
In contrast to philosophies behind SB 872 and S 2278, eminent Catholic psychiatrist Dr. Rick Fitzgibbons of Montgomery County maintains that "Youth have the right to be provided informed consent about the serious medical and psychiatric illnesses, and risks, of the homosexual lifestyle.
