Congress had their annual baseball game last night. Democrats lost last night’s game, but now they’re trying to get their triple-threat agenda across home plate in Congress. Democrats want to pass at least three radical bills by the end of the week. Here’s a quick pitch of the bills they want to pass:

Infrastructure
The Infrastructure Bill should be about fixing roads and infrastructure, as the name suggests. Here’s the catch: this over 2,000-page bill will cost taxpayers $1 trillion and contains Equality Act language.

Human Infrastructure
The House is also teaming up with Biden to pass a radical $3.5 trillion “Human Infrastructure” bill, also known as Biden’s Socialist Budget. The bill omits the Hyde amendment, meaning the bill would force taxpayers to fund abortions. The bill also overrides longstanding pro-life protections in a new government-run health care program and in the Affordable Care Act exchanges.

HR 2119
Finally, the House will vote on HR 2119, the Family Violence Prevention Services Improvement Act of 2021. This bill should be focused on giving states grants to help individuals impacted by domestic violence. But here’s the curveball:  HR 2119 is being used as a vehicle for radical Equality Act language. Specifically,

These three bills could be up for a vote any time this week! Please step up to the plate and urge your Member of Congress to OPPOSE the Democrats’ Triple Threat Agenda!

Many might assume that President Biden and Vice President Harris are focused on vaccinating the population against COVID-19 or perhaps something related to the environment and climate change. But, the Biden/Harris Administration has a different top priority—championing gender theory, or the idea that a person can change their sex and that everyone else must affirm that decision or be punished.

This would be laughable at times, like when we learned that Biden’s budget changed the word “mother” to “birthing person.” It sounds ridiculous and out-of-touch, but the truth is that gender theory is a very dangerous political agenda, especially for children. Yet, the Administration seems determined to force gender theory into every aspect of our lives and especially onto our children.

Here are just a few examples:

BREAKING TODAY: GOODBYE TO TITLE IX

Just today, Biden’s Education Department released new “official” guidance that it will interpret the word “sex” in Title IX to include “gender identity.” In other words, a student can “identify” as the opposite sex at any time, for any reason.

The results for real American families? This means the end of girls’ sports, the invasion of privacy in locker rooms, and serious damage to their scholarships. It’s a pretty low blow, especially considering that Title IX’s 49th anniversary comes next week—stay tuned for more on that!

The irony is that Title IX is inherently built on sex-based distinctions. It is the federal civil rights law enacted to make sure women and girls have equal access to educational opportunities– and that requirement includes sports. To redefine Title IX so that any man can declare himself to be a woman at any time for any reason makes Title IX virtually pointless.

Read FPA’s official statement to the media about the Education Department’s new “guidance” on Title IX.

THE EQUALITY ACT

Many Americans are now familiar with this dangerous piece of legislation that President Biden labeled his top priority early on. The Equality Act would use the sweeping federal Civil Rights law to force gender theory onto the entire country, giving the same protection to a person because of their self-declared gender identity as we would because of their race.

The Equality Act would result in:

Thankfully, your voices have stopped the Equality Act from moving forward, but we expect a vote in the Senate on the bill next week!

To help, TAKE ACTION now, using our 1-minute Action Center to tell your Senator to vote NO! It is critical that this vote fails in the Senate!

PRESIDENT BIDEN’S “GENDER THEORY MUST BE EVERYWHERE IN AMERICA” ORDER

Biden and Harris must have known that the Equality Act would be a hard-sell to American families because on his very first day in office, Biden issued an executive order mandating that all government agencies—including those that most affect us in our everyday lives, such as the Health and Education Departments—must implement his gender theory into every area of law and regulation.

Passing the Equality Act into law, especially with the filibuster still intact in the Senate, is a heavy lift. It’s much easier for President Biden to issue a power-grabbing fiat with his pen, taking a chance that the American voters may not call him on it.

HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS: PERFORM TRANSGENDER OPERATIONS OR ELSE

The Biden/Harris Health Department also joined the “gender theory propaganda bandwagon” in a big way. The Department recently announced that it would also interpret the word “sex” in Title IX and in Obamacare to also mean “gender identity”—just like we saw today from the Education Department.

This means that healthcare professionals such as doctors, hospitals, and insurers are required to provide transgender interventions on individuals. What does this look like in practice? If a hospital is willing to perform a mastectomy on a woman who has breast cancer, then the rule will require the hospital to also perform mastectomies on women—or even young girls—who identify as transgender.  If they administer hormones for certain medical treatments, they must also be willing to administer them for teenagers seeking to “transition.”  Under the rule, professionals would be required to perform these operations even if they do not believe them to be in the patient’s best interest in their professional judgment.

It’s a very twisted rule, clearly proving the point that this agenda puts politics over people every time.

The Biden/Harris Administration’s top priority is clearly dangerous with far-reaching consequences, especially for children who are affected at schools and who are not of an age where they can truly offer informed consent for serious medical operations.

But the GOOD NEWS is, it’s not all bad news!

  1. The Biden/Harris Administration’s obsession with gender theory shows how out-of-touch they are with real American families.
  2. More and more people are speaking out boldly to say “enough is enough!” every day.
  3. Over 30 states considered legislation to #SaveGirlsSports this year, with at least 7 states passing it into law!
  4. Arkansas became the first state in the nation to protect children from experimental transgender “treatments”!
  5. There’s still time to TAKE ACTION on the Equality Act to tell your Senators to vote NO.
  6. Even the Associated Press has admitted that the states taking action against gender theory, especially to save girls sports, are stopping the Equality Act!

So, take heart! Your voice in your state and to Congress is making a difference! And, your courage to speak out boldly against harmful gender ideology is making a difference. There’s a new wave of fellow Americans and believers washing over America with a renewed sense of hope, determination, and dedication to truth.

Your voice is needed to oppose a proposed rule from the Biden-Harris Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that would authorize abortion groups to receive Title X Family Planning funds. The proposal also mandates that grant recipients refer for abortions.

Under the Trump Administration, Title X grant funding was prohibited from being used for abortion referrals, protecting taxpayers from funding the abortion industry. This proposed rule will overturn these taxpayer protections if finalized.

Taxpayer dollars should never be used to promote the killing of innocent life – yet that’s exactly what the Biden Administration is planning to do through this rule.

The Administration will use this rule to boost Planned Parenthood’s bottom line with taxpayer dollars. A footnote in the rule even states that funding Planned Parenthood through Title X would result in cost savings – not for the taxpayer – but for Planned Parenthood.

The proposed rule would also force Title X recipients to provide abortion referrals – proving just how committed this Administration is to its pro-abortion agenda.

Not only is the Administration determined to fund an abortion giant, but they want everyone else to get on board with the abortion agenda as well.

But you can tell HHS to STOP using YOUR taxpayer dollars from funding Planned Parenthood!

Please click the link and write a comment to the Department of Health and Human Services telling them that you do NOT want to fund Planned Parenthood!

Here are a few points you can pick and choose from in your comment:

The comment period for this rule ends on May 17. Your comment can help make a difference by pushing back against this radical abortion agenda. Please be sure to share this information so the Department of Health and Human Services hears from as many people as possible!

*If a program refers a client to abortion, it is in fact a program where abortion is considered a “family planning related service,” (as acknowledged on page 19818 of the proposed rule) and thus specifically is prohibited by statute.
