Could battles over transgenderism sink Biden’s first major legislation?

Mar 1, 2021 by

by Robert Hutchinson, MercatorNet: Some doctors say that the ‘Equality Act’ will force doctors to harm their patients. The battle in the US Congress over transgenderism and minor children could potentially sink the Biden Administration’s first major piece of legislation, the so-called “Equality Act”. Uniting both women’s rights activists and conservatives, the fight also demonstrates the degree to which the administration’s commitment to the most extreme parts of the progressive...

Feb 26, 2021 by

by Claire Chretien, LifeSite: The U.S. House of Representatives voted 224 to 206 today to pass the “Equality Act,” which would write transgenderism into federal civil rights law, compel medical professionals to commit abortions and transgender surgeries, and expand taxpayer-funded abortion on demand. “On occasion, Congressional leaders will purposely misname a piece of legislation to disguise its true intention.

Biden’s Equality Act is not the unifying issue he thinks it is

Feb 24, 2021 by

The Unfairness of the Misnamed ‘Fairness For All’ Act

Aug 7, 2020 by

by Ryan T Anderson and Robert P George, SSRN: Abstract Intransigence is a vice, but there is no virtue in accepting bad compromises. The “Fairness for All” legislation is a bad compromise — and as a result, would be a misguided response to the Supreme Court’s Bostock decision. To show this is not to question the good faith of the bill’s advocates, with whom we have been in friendly dialogue for years. It’s merely to note that despite the undoubted goodwill of the bill’s proponents (and despite...
