January 8, 2021 (Family Research Council) — One of the very first things Joe Biden has promised to do as president is abolish girls' sports. It's a ludicrous thing to make a priority, but the former Obama VP insists — like most liberals — that “transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.” It's the fair thing to do, Biden argues. But is it? New research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine says no.

It's been one of the fiercest debates of the last year — erupting in boxing rings, Olympic committees, even high school tracks. Should biological boys be allowed to compete against girls in the name of inclusion? People across the political spectrum have agreed: they should not. In an unlikely coalition, outspoken LGBT activists have joined forces with soccer moms and conservatives to fight for the right to keep competition on a level playing field. Groups like Save Women's Sports popped up, working in state legislatures like Idaho to keep the two genders separate. “We strongly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to compete, but true athletic parity for women demands that women's sports be protected for biological females.”

The science, it turns out, supports them. In a study that even NBC felt compelled to cover, Dr. Timothy Roberts found that men undergoing a female transition still have a competitive biological edge. “At one year,” which has been the typical cutoff for organizations like the Olympic committee, “the trans women on average still have an advantage…” he said. Roberts made these discoveries studying Air Force servicemen and women who were in the process of transitioning. After several months of hormones and other treatment, the men in transition were still able to do more push-ups and run faster than their female counterparts.

For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.

Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.

And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.

Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.

January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.

January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.

(After you have signed this petition, take a couple of minutes to personally contact your state legislators by email, Twitter, or by phone, using the Voter Voice tool provided to you by LifeSite. With one click of a button, you can contact them without having to look up any contact details yourself!)

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.

Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.

And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition. And then, please take 5 minutes to contact your local state representatives using the Voter Voice link below. With Voter Voice, it really couldn't be easier.

Thank you!

Obviously, Roberts pointed out, being in the military isn't exactly the same as being in the Olympics, but “it's a comparable situation, where you have someone doing whatever they can to maintain or improve their abilities.” Naturally, other doctors and researchers felt compelled to pooh-pooh the study to NBC, arguing that it has limitations that we shouldn't apply to the debate over girls' sports. But the reality is, doctors like Michelle Cretella have been saying for years, men and women are profoundly and genetically different in ways that no medicine or surgery can change.

“[M]en and women have — at a minimum — 6,500 genetic differences between us. And this impacts every cell of our bodies — our organ systems, how diseases manifest, how we diagnose, and even treat in some cases.” And yet, the NCAA has joined the radical International Olympic Committee in downplaying those disparities. Fortunately, most Americans can see through the political correctness to common sense. In polling late last year in 10 battleground states, 75 percent of voters said they object to mixed-gender sports. “I think we've made some progress in [warning the country about] what's happening. And I think it's so common sense and basic for people that they're kind of wondering, 'Why are we even having this discussion right now?'” Concerned Women for America's Doreen Denny said on “Washington Watch.”

But we're having this discussion because of radical liberals like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris — two people who will do anything to tear down the walls of science, morality, and human history if they have the chance. And it will be up to us — and the brave voices fighting for truth — to stand up and speak out.
