UPDATE: Vote now expected THIS FRIDAY! Send faxes now!
The anti-faith Equality Act is through the House Rules Committee and is headed for a Floor Vote that is expected to take place on FRIDAY.
That gives citizens just two days to take action. Two critical actions today:
+ + Action #1 -- Fax Key House Members NOW!
Grassfire team members have already delivered thousands of faxes to Capitol Hill. We want to see 10,000 more faxes scheduled for delivery in the next 48 hours leading up to the vote.
If possible, please select the "Bigger Impact" Level Two faxes and reach the entire GOP House Freedom Caucus
+ + Action #2: Call Your Congressman
We encourage every team member to flood the Capitol Hill switchboard and contact their congressman and let him or her know where you stand on this issue.
Call the switchboard and ask to be transferred to your Rep: 202-224-3121
Or go here to find your Rep.
+ + "Doctors will be force to perform" sex-change operations on teenagers!
The ramifications of this bill are far-reaching. In addition to nullifying the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and forcing Christians to violate their sincerely held beliefs, the Equality Act will MANDATE that doctors and hospitals perform sex-change operations on teenagers.
In an Op-Ed in The Hill yesterday, Rep. Vickie Hartzler (R-MO) highlighted this shocking reality, noting that under the Equality Act:
"...physicians are only given one option: affirm a child’s questioning. In other words, doctors will be forced to perform double mastectomies on healthy 13-year-old girls, and pediatric endocrinologists will have to provide hormone blockers like Lupron to kids experiencing gender dysphoria or be charged with “discrimination.” Parents who dare to oppose doctors performing life altering surgical procedures on their children or using cancer drugs—suspected of causing lasting health problems—on kids without cancer, will be considered abusive and neglectful."
