The Flight Attendant Union on Monday called on the state of Indiana to fix its controversial religious freedom law that may allow businesses to discriminate against gay people.

“We call on the Indiana State legislature to undo this abhorrent law. And just as we have done throughout our history, such as the battle we waged against Big Tobacco, we will relentlessly battle the hate spewing from the Governor’s office in Indiana or wherever it may exist until our communities are free of hate,” AFA International President Sara Nelson (pictured above) said in a statement.

The Flight Attendant Union joins groups and businesses like the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and Twitter in denouncing the legislation.

After mounting pressure, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) on Tuesday called for legislation to clarify that the that the “law does not give businesses to deny services to anyone.”
