Earlier today, a number of important pro-values bills we have been working very hard on were filed in the NC House and Senate. These include the “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” (HB 574 and SB 631); the “Youth Health Protection Act”(SB 639), and the “Medical Ethics Defense Act” (SB 641).

The “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” protects females from being forced to play against biological males on sports teams, which can leave females with injuries and cheats them out of equal opportunities. As for the “Youth Health Protection Act,” it prevents medical professionals from administering procedures including sterilization, mastectomies, castrations, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and other life-altering procedures and treatments on gender-confused children. Finally, the “Medical Ethics Defense Act” protects the conscience rights of medical professionals and entities from being forced to provide any health care service which violates their conscience.

These pieces of legislation are needed.

For example, in October 2022, a Cherokee County NC high school girl was severely injured when a trans woman (biological male) spiked a ball in her face, causing her severe neck and head injuries, vision problems and long-term consequences from a concussion. A recent statewide poll we conducted even showed 71% of North Carolinians believe biological males should not be allowed to play on female sports teams.

A vast majority of our neighbors believe it’s not safe or fair for biological boys to infringe on female sports. A male’s belief about his gender doesn’t erase his physical advantages over female athletes, and every male on the podium displaces a deserving girl.

Today, we are emailing you to ask that you help us pass legislation like the “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act,” the “Youth Health Protection Act,” and the “Medical Ethics Defense Act” in the NC General Assembly this session.

If you agree, would you consider taking a moment to use this easy and time-saving click-to-contact tool to email your NC Representatives and ask them to pass the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act?

In gratitude,

Tami & Team,
