. Everyone should have the same protections under law. I Was Once Willing To Give My Life For What I Believed This Country Stood For Shirt, hoodie
Supporters of the bill argued that the legislation would not have negative impacts on women, rather it would just provide everyone with the same protections.
“We need the Equality Act to set all of our people free,” Alphonso David, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said. “All we are asking for is the same protections under law that should be guaranteed to every single person in this nation.”
Sen. Dick Durbin compared the Equality Act to the fight for racial equality, women’s right to vote and protections for disabled persons.
“We have got to have hope that America, as it has broken down the barriers to race, as it has broken down the barriers to women voting, broken down the barriers to those who are disabled, and broken down the barriers to sexual orientation, we will never stop breaking down these barriers,” he said.
3. Women and girls are the only ones ‘asked to bear this risk’
Team-right lawmakers argued that the future of women’s sports will go down the drain.
In 2015, “Allyson Felix, [a] great American sprinter, ran the 400-meter in 49.26 seconds,” Shrier said. “And in 2018, nearly 300 high school boys could beat her. So what that means is America would never know the name Allyson Felix,” Abigail Shrier, an independent journalist and author of the book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, said.
The unfairness of the Equality Act is highlighted in a flawed assumption that “girls can take it,” Shrier added.
4. The bill goes ‘where no federal law has gone before’
“Biological sex matters in law, medicine and for many of us, in the practice of our faith,” Mary Rice Hasson, a Catholic studies fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center said. “The Equality Act goes where no federal law has gone before.”
Lawmakers argued the bill threatens religious organizations by removing protection provided by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993.
The act would essentially prevent religious institutions from “having recourse” to the protection earlier law provides, Hasson argued.
