On June 23rd, Title IX turned 50 years old. Title IX is the landmark law that ensures women have equal access to education and athletic opportunities. Instead of celebrating this watershed for women’s rights, President Biden chose Title IX’s golden anniversary to pervert the law and advance his extreme abortion agenda.
If this new rule takes effect, the Administration will succeed in forcing abortion into even pro-life states through “Title IX.”
In the proposed rule, the Administration redefines “discrimination based on sex” to include “termination of pregnancy.” This means that even if a state already protects life in its laws, any school that receives any federal funding will be forced to make abortion accessible for students or else lose their federal funding.
TELL THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION YOU OPPOSE ENSHRINING ABORTION IN SCHOOLS
This new rule would hijack Title IX to create abortion sanctuaries in federally funded colleges and universities by requiring them to provide abortion or lose their federal funds. Beyond that, it may even require faith-based schools or K-12 schools to make abortion accessible to their students.
This rule will lead to costly litigation for schools, organizations, and individuals who object to providing abortions because of their conscience or sincerely held religious beliefs.
A rule like this could make colleges dispense abortion pills like candy and force pro-life healthcare providers to violate their consciences. Please submit a public comment opposing this dangerous rule now!

Jayson started struggling with same-sex attractions after being abused as a child. Thankfully, he was able to get professional counseling and coaching that continues to help him align his life with the heartfelt convictions of his faith.
But now, the ACLU and their allies are working to ban such professional counseling for minors. They want to make counseling on sexual orientation a one-way street — toward homosexuality.
Family Policy Alliance is fighting these bans and supporting our freedoms in state after state.
“This fight is for vulnerable kids — just like I was at eight years old,” says Jayson. “Family Policy Alliance is uniquely positioned to win, with 40 state groups and proven strategies to mobilize citizens effectively. I encourage everyone who cares about protecting children and parents’ rights to support the work of Family Policy Alliance.”
