Advancing The Sanctity Of Human Life On Capitol Hill

Stop the "Equality Act"!

Congress is working to pass a bill misnamed the “Equality Act” that will unleash the most radical, anti-religious discrimination America has yet faced. In addition, this bill will create a federal "right" to abortion.
 
The "Equality Act" expands the definition of "sex" to include "pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition." Abortion is included under "related medical condition." And this definition would apply to all public accommodations—including healthcare.
 
And there are no religious or conscience exemptions in this bill. The bill specifically states that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) cannot be used as a claim or defense.
 
If passed, this bill will preempt every state law and will force all healthcare providers to support the "right" to abortion directly, or indirectly by mandatory referrals.

In addition, it attacks religious freedom, free speech, privacy, and women’s rights. The impact of it will be widespread—affecting churches; religious colleges and universities; public, private, and Christian schools; curriculum; religious and private organizations; employers; employees; individuals; foster care and adoption; shelters; local, state, and federal entities; privacy; women’s rights; and much more!

Dear Legislator,

The misnamed “Equality Act” is not only destructive to religious freedom, but also to the unborn.
 
This bill expands the definition of "sex" to include "pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical condition." And as other federal agencies have indicated, abortion is included under "related medical condition."
 
The "Equality Act" specifically states that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) cannot be used as a claim or defense. There are NO religious or conscience exemptions in this bill. Medical professionals, counselors, and pregnancy resource centers would be forced to violate their consciences and provide or refer for abortions or abortion-inducing drugs.
 
This bill will preempt state laws, including prior federal laws that restrict federal funding of abortions. And most Americans are opposed to taxpayer funding of abortions.
 
ALL hospitals, medical providers, pharmacists, employers and insurance companies will be forced to participate in chemical and surgical abortions. Health insurance offered by churches, religious schools and employers will be required to cover abortion.
 
And this is all in addition to the other ways this bill destroys religious freedom and establishes a legal foundation to attack those who live out their faith.
 
I urge you to do everything you can to block and stop the misnamed and ill-conceived "Equality Act."

Sincerely,

(Your Name)
