Democrats are targeting religious freedoms and women as their Equality Act goes to the Senate floor. This is as reports are revealing that a majority of states are planning to restrict access to facilities based on gender identity.
GOP lawmakers are rejecting the Liberal-led legislation. They believe the rule is a threat to religious freedoms as the bill also removes any possibility of religious objections.
The law might ruin women’s sports and strip privacy rights.
“The law will view them as women if the Equality Act passes, so if they decide to go a female facility…whether it’s a shower room, bathroom or locker room…the law would let them in,” said attorney Emily Kao.
There are at least 60 pieces of legislation being worked on across the country looking to limit access to facilities of all types based upon biological gender.
