At 10:00 a.m. ET, the Senate Judiciary Committee will meet to discuss the so-called Equality Act. This dangerous bill is a full-on assault against religious freedom. If passed, millions of Americans would have their sincerely held religious beliefs sacrificed on the "altar" of pro-LGBTQ political correctness.
This controversial legislation is a blatant attack against the rights of American women, girls and people of faith. It also could harm children by eliminating faith-based adoption and foster-care providers, while also defending abortion under the guise of "sex discrimination." (See below.)

The legislation does NOT exempt churches, religious organizations, Christian businesses or Christian schools and universities. In fact, the "Equality" Act specifically FORBIDS religious free-exercise claims as a defense against it.
The bill also rewrites civil-rights law to include "sexual orientation and gender identity" as protected classes. By doing so, it would erase significant safety, privacy and equality rights for biological females.

Over the past few weeks, Grassfire has been emailing our team members about how the so-called Equality Act (H.R.5) would harm women, girls, at-risk children and people of faith. But in the past 24 hours, we've learned how this controversial pro-LGBTQ legislation also poses a significant risk to the unborn.
You won't find the word "abortion" in the text of the "Equality" Act. But the Heritage Foundation writes that the bill could be "disastrous" for America's pro-life movement:
Because of the way the Equality Act is drafted, this new definition of sex discrimination — understood to include a medical condition such as abortion — would be applied to areas of law, such as federally assisted programs, public accommodations, and Obamacare’s nondiscrimination provision.
In practice, it could mean that a health care provider would be discriminating on the basis of sex if they refused to perform an abortion procedure; a hospital could be discriminating on the basis of sex if it refused to allow abortions to take place within its facility; and health insurance plans could be discriminating on the basis of sex if they do not include coverage for elective abortions.
As if green-lighting an extreme homosexual and transgender agenda at the expense of biological females and people of faith wasn't bad enough, the Heritage Foundation calls the Equality Act "a Trojan horse for abortion promotion"! Millions of Americans want the Senate to defeat this radical, far-left bill in defense of religious liberty, to ensure a level playing field for women's and girls' sports, to validate the scientific difference between sex at birth and chosen gender, and to protect born and unborn children.

The "Equality" Act insists that pro-faith Americans CANNOT disagree with the radical Democrats' and Unhinged Left's extreme pro-LGBTQ agenda. It threatens to invalidate "The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993" -- a crucial law passed to guarantee and protect the sincerely held beliefs of American Christians and other people of faith.
Make no mistake! This legislation is one of the greatest threats to religious freedom America has EVER seen. If passed, it would impact churches, faith-based organizations (including adoption and foster-care providers), Christian businesses and Christian schools by forcing them to sacrifice their beliefs on the altar of "woke," pro-LGBTQ political correctness. Plus, the other threats to women, girls, at-risk children and the unborn mean this bill CANNOT be ignored!
As America waits for a full Senate vote on the "Equality" Act, Senators on both sides of the aisle are expected to face intense pressure from Christians, LGBTQ activists and others. You can call on Republicans in the Upper Chamber to stand firm and stay united to protect religious freedom and the rights of women, girls, at-risk children and the unborn!

In Grassfire's recent "Is This Equality?" QuickPoll, more than 95% of the 7,300+ respondents voted for Republicans to stop this highly controversial legislation. Democrats tried to pass the "Equality" Act in 2019 and failed. Tomorrow, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold its first hearing on the bill, which needs 60 votes to pass. That means, 10 GOP Senators must side with Democrats and vote "YES" for H.R.5 to become law.
