BREAKING: Indiana Governor Fails Female Athletes – Statement

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb vetoed the state’s bill to Save Girls’ Sports

The following is attributable to Meridian Baldacci, Spokesperson for Family Policy Alliance:

“Today, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb failed female athletes across the Hoosier state. Just days after the NCAA forced a female swimmer to take second place to a male, Governor Holcomb abandoned young Hoosier girls to the same fate in their own sports leagues.

This is tragic. Every time a male is awarded a limited girls’ roster spot, competition placement, scholarship, championship title or career opportunity, a female athlete has that same opportunity taken away from her – in a contest meant just for females.

The Indiana General Assembly must override this misguided and concerning veto from the governor of one of the most conservative states in the nation.”

When faced with the same decision as Holcomb, governors around the nation have made the choice to protect their states’ female athletes. To date, eleven states have laws that #SaveGirlsSports.
