June 1, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Blue states are ramping up plans to move male convicts who identify as women to female prisons despite recent reports of sexual assault by gender-confused men behind bars.
Last week, Maine lawmakers advanced LD 1044, a bill mandating that prisoners be housed in facilities based on “gender identity.” A section of the bill entitled “gender affirmation” states that inmates must be treated “irrespective of anatomy or physique” for housing and “search procedures.” The Maine Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety approved LD 1044 by unanimous vote last Tuesday.
Maine’s push to eliminate sex-specific prisons comes amid a mass integration of biological males into female correctional facilities in California with little regard for sex offender status.
Since California overhauled prison rules last year, more than 260 gender-confused inmates have put in requests to switch facilities, Breitbart reported in April. Virtually all of the requests have come from men seeking to be placed with women, and none of them have been declined under the law, which, as in Maine, does not take anatomy into account.
Eleven men, some of them rapists or murderers, already have been placed in Central California Women’s Facility, the largest female-only prison in the United States, according to World News Group.
A similar situation has unfolded in Washington state, where a whistleblower recently told local news that a male prisoner raped a women upon arriving at a prison in Pierce County.
“He is a proven sexual predator, having committed multiple crimes against women, yet the state of Washington had no problem moving him into a women’s facility and housing him with the most vulnerable in our population,” the whistleblower, a prison employee, reportedly said.
The so-called 'Equality Act' contains deadly poison for Christian democracy in the United States. And, its harmless-sounding name tries to hide this insidious reality.
But, unfortunately, Pelosi and company have JUST PASSED this morally repugnant bill in the US House of Representatives.
Pro-life and pro-family organizations, as well as Christian churches and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and freedom-loving groups everywhere, are now sounding the alarm.
Wake up, America, this is RED ALERT time!
This petition, therefore, calls on every US Senator to vigorously oppose and reject this bill.
Yes, it's THAT important.
The bill has nothing to do with "equality," or with extending the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which is how it is being touted by the leftists in the mainstream media.
It is, rather, one of the MOST EXTREME anti-life, pro-LGBT indoctrination bills ever proposed.
It has been described as a short-list of the worst possible elements of the Radical Left's agenda in Congress...and, REMEMBER, it has just passed the House!
We need to tell all US Senators, in no uncertain terms, that WE WILL NOT ACCEPT this outrageous attack on our freedoms and on life, itself!
SIGN AND SHARE THIS URGENT PETITION, TODAY!
And, after you have signed this petition, please CLICK HERE to DIRECTLY CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS, and tell them to oppose this assault on our freedoms of thought, speech, conscience and religion.
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Below are some of the devastating critiques of 'Equality Act,' leveled by some of the best conservative, Christian minds in the country.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), has written that the 'Equality Act' will include, "the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion this country has ever seen.”
"Under this big new umbrella of 'discrimination,'" continued Perkins, "any American who doesn’t want to fund, offer, perform, or participate in abortion on demand will have no real choice. They can conform — or they can be punished."
"Every wall that’s been built between abortion and the government would come crashing down, including the Hyde Amendment, the pro-conscience Weldon Amendment, and several international barriers that keep our country from exporting abortion."
ON CHRISTIANITY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and LGBT INDOCTRINATION:
Lloyd Marcus, of the American Thinker publication, has written about the 'Equality Act' in the following terms:
"LGBTQ enforcer and homosexual Democrat congressman David Cicilline is sponsor of the Equality Act. Cicilline's evil bill is the most aggressive assault on our constitutional religious liberties in U.S. history...If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, every outrageous, tyrannical demand [of LGBTQ activists/enforcers] will become reality."
And, Liberty Counsel Action, a law and policy education, training and advocacy organization which, among other things, advances religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family has extensively criticized the 'Equality Act'.
On their webpage, dedicated to analyzing the 'Equality Act', which you can access below, Liberty Counsel Action state: "The 'Equality' Act' elevates 'sexual orientation and gender identity' to the same protected category as race. It will violate the religious freedom of Americans in numerous ways."
The go on to list the areas of life which this will affect: "It will impact all employers, including religious and non-profit organizations; contractors; houses of worship; public, private, and religious schools; curriculum; bathrooms; sports; daycare providers; shelters; hospitals; places of gatherings; entertainment providers; counselors; foster care and adoption; biological parents; landlords; anywhere providing a “good, service, or program,” including those advertised online; transportation drivers; and all local, state, and federal entities and many other areas."
And, as they note: "[T]here is NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION to this bill!"
Taking into account all of these potential threats to Christian democracy, Life and religious freedom, it is easy to see how the so-called 'Equality Act' has been called a "poison pill."
It is imperative that the US Senate vigorously reject this bill, AND EXPOSE IT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.
Please SIGN this urgent petition, TODAY!

LifeSiteNews opinion and analysis of the so-called 'Equality Act':
Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), a pro-abortion feminist group that opposes transgender prison transfers, has since sued to uncover prison records about gender-confused male inmates in Washington. While a state judge has prevented the full release of the records, documents obtained by WoLF show that a rapist indeed had been placed with female prisoners in the state.
“The DOC records also confirm that there are prison infraction records and PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) records against several men who are currently housed in women’s prisons,” the organization revealed.
Other states pushing forward with broadly unpopular “gender identity” transfers include Connecticut and Massachusetts, World News Group said, as well as New Jersey, which moved a biologically male inmate to a female facility in Pennsylvania last week.
Reports of sexual assault of women by men in prison have been reported in various places in recent years, including Illinois and the United Kingdom, as liberals increasingly institutionalize LGBT ideology in criminal justice systems. Transgender-identifying men, who are significantly overrepresented among British sex criminals, have been reported to have raped both prisoners and prison officers in the U.K.
