On Thursday, May 19, 2022, a group of conservative lawmakers in Congress introduced the Women’s Bill of Rights to protect women from woke left elitists intent on canceling women in a race to be the most progressive in affirming transgender ideology.
This vitally important pro-woman effort is being led by a woman, Representative Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), and has the support of eleven Republican cosponsors.
The resolution, H.Res. 1136, does something so basic and commonsensical that it may seem unnecessary at first – it reaffirms the “legal protections afforded to women under Federal law.”
And yet, in these absurd times, the left is sure to oppose the measure.
So, what exactly could be so offensive to the left about the legislation? Well, for starters, it defines the word “sex” to mean the biological sex recognized at birth – either male or female. Not gender identity or sexual orientation.
It also defines the word “mother” to mean a parent of the female sex. Not chest-feeder or pregnant person.
And probably worst of all, it defines the word “woman.” Yes, it bucks the cultural trend and dares to define the word woman as a biological female. Something even our most recent nominee to the Supreme Court couldn’t do.
Shocking assertions, right? I think not.
Let me tell you what is shocking. It is shocking that this legislation is even necessary – but it is!
The woke left is tripping over itself in a rush to neutralize, cancel, and erase women in the name of being the most progressive – and it’s wrong!
The resolution minces no words. It declares that:
- “…males and females possess unique and immutable biological differences….”
- “…biological differences between the sexes mean that only females may get pregnant, give birth, and breastfeed children….”
- “…biological differences between the sexes mean that males are, on average, larger in size and possess greater body strength than females….”
- “…biological difference between the sexes can expose females to more harm than males from specific forms of violence….”
Yes, yes, yes, and yes. These are facts – not opinions.
To that end, the resolution seeks to protect women by reaffirming under Federal law the distinctions between the sexes – specifically when “athletics, prisons, domestic violence shelters, restrooms, and other areas where biology, safety, and privacy” are implicated.
Women shouldn’t be forced to compete in sports against men who believe they are women – it’s not an equal playing field.
Women in prison shouldn’t be subjected to rape by men who believe they are women (or lie about it to manipulate the system) – it’s an injustice.
Girls shouldn’t be subjected to rape in school bathrooms by boys who believe they are girls (or lie about it to manipulate the system) – it’s morally reprehensible.
Current events demonstrate that this measure is needed to protect women and girls.
Supporters of the bill say it is necessary because of “misguided court rulings related to the definition of sex.” The legislation reaffirms that sex should be limited to biological sex at birth and not expanded to include sexual orientation or gender identity.
Proponents also contend that this clarification regarding the definition of “sex” is essential because data collection for women on topics like health, education, crime, economic conditions, etc., will mean nothing if it also includes the data of men who believe they are women.
The Bible is clear. God created humanity, blessed them, and called His creation very good.
Genesis 5:2 asserts, “He created them male and female, and He blessed them and called them ‘human.’”
And Genesis 1:31 declares, “God saw all that He made, and it was very good.”
Womanhood ought to be celebrated as the good thing it is, not redefined by the left. In fact, redefining what it means to be a woman is to reject the very thing God called good, and that is a rejection of God Himself.
The measure has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee, where it awaits consideration.
If you are a woman, love a woman, or want to support women, contact your representative and urge him or her to support this measure.
