The battle to save women’s sports in Louisiana has reached its final stage: Gov. John Bel Edwards’s desk. The corporate and national pressure for him to veto this good bill is intense, and that’s why we – along with our allies at Louisiana Family Forum – are asking you to take a moment to email or call him today!
Legislators on both sides of the aisle and in both chambers understand the importance of protecting opportunities guaranteed to women through Title IX – and those include sports and scholarship programs. Allowing biological men to infringe on those protections is anti-woman and a violation of women’s rights.
Senate Bill 156 would protect female athletic opportunities from being hijacked by biological males. It’s about both science and fairness:
- Science. It’s common sense to keep boys out of girls’ sports, but it’s also science. There are 6,500 genetic differences between males and females, including males having greater bone density, muscle mass and lung capacity.
- Fairness. Around the country, when biological males are allowed to compete on girls’ sports teams, they frequently rob girls of championships, state records and scholarship opportunities.
Please take 30 seconds to call and leave a message for Gov. Edwards, politely asking him allow SB 156 to go into effect which would protect girls’ sports.

Thanks for speaking up!
