The ramifications of the misnamed "Equality" Act are far-reaching and unAmerican. This anti-woman, anti-faith legislation is an effort to gain legal protections for a radical homosexual and transgender agenda. H.R.5 would force Christians to violate their sincerely held beliefs and potentially puts them on the wrong side of the law.
The bill also significantly compromises (or even cancels) equality, safety and privacy rights for women and girls. In May 2019, Rep. Vickie Hartzler (R-MO) authored an op-ed for The Hill, highlighting the shocking realities of the "Equality" Act. She wrote:
As a former track coach, I worry for the future of women’s sports. As a member of Congress, I worry about the rights of women as more and more government policies redefine "sex" to include sexual orientation and gender identity. This is already having major repercussions on the rights, privacy, safety and achievements of women and girls.
(T)his grossly misnamed measure ... is anything but equalizing. It hijacks the Civil Rights Law of 1964 creating a brave new world of 'discrimination' based on undefined terms of sexual orientation and gender identity. The legislation threatens women’s sports, shelters and schools, silencing female athletes, domestic abuse survivors, mothers, teachers, physicians.
Democrat efforts to pass this highly controversial legislation failed in 2019, but H.R.5 could actually pass if Republicans in the House and Senate don't take a stand.
