Congresswoman Unpacks Damage the Equality Act Would Do to Women

On 05.15.19 09:01 PM posted by Debbie Lesko

I’m Rep. Debbie Lesko from the state of Arizona.

The Equality Act—or I call it the Forfeiting Women’s Rights Act—takes away women’s and girls’ rights that we fought for for years.

It requires organizations such as schools, churches, university dormitories, or nonprofit organizations to allow biological males in traditionally women’s spaces like women’s bathrooms, women’s locker rooms, women’s showers—even without any type of medical diagnosis or psychological diagnosis.

This really infringes on the rights of women and girls to have their privacy and to have safety.

The Equality Act would require doctors to give sex-change operations and sex-changing hormones to adolescents. Even if the parent disagrees and doesn’t give permission. Women and girls who take these sex-changing hormones are then sterilized for the rest of their lives.

People need to wake up. This radical bill is going to totally eliminate women’s and girls sports because what this bill does is it requires schools and universities allow biological males to compete in women’s sports.

The so-called Equality Act would really take away all of our constitutionally protected religious freedoms. It strips out of the language the Religious Freedom Restoration Act—the first time in history that a bill has done this. This will be terrible for anyone that has religious objections.

The Equality Act is such a terrible bill that I really needed to speak out about it. It gives protections to some over protections for others. This is not equality at all.
