Republicans in Congress have introduced a bill to define what a woman is.
Republican Representative Debbie Lesko of Arizona has sponsored a Women’s Bill of Rights to provide women with additional legal protections under federal law, RedState reported.
Noting that the adoption of a standard for identifying people by their gender is vital to societal stability, H.Res.1136 Conditions: “[T]Here are important reasons to differentiate between the sexes in relation to sports, prisons, domestic violence shelters, toilets and other areas, especially when it comes to biology, safety and privacy.”
Proposed legislation states that “males and females possess unique and unchanging biological differences that manifest before birth and increase with age and the experience of puberty” and that “biological differences between the sexes make females more vulnerable to certain forms of violence.” than men, including sexual violence.”
It even defies current left-wing orthodoxy by declaring that only women can get pregnant. The bill states: “The biological difference between the sexes means that only women can conceive, give birth and breastfeed children.”
The bill also notes that maternity and paternity are reserved for women and men, respectively. The bill states, “For the purposes of federal law, the word ‘mother’ means a female parent and ‘father’ is defined as a male parent.”
Republicans Jim Banks from Indiana, Mary Miller from Illinois, Diana Harshbarger from Tennessee, Claudia Tenney from New York, Vicky Hartzler from Missouri, Doug Lambron from Kansas, Ronny Jackson from Texas, Doug LaMalfa, Victoria Spartz from Indiana, Ralph Norman from South Carolina and Barry Moore of Alabama filed the bill along with Lesko.
Banks, who also serves as chair of the Republican Study Committee, argued that this legislation was crucial to protecting women’s rights from leftist attacks.
He said: “The modern Democratic Party has put the vigilant agenda of the left ahead of women’s rights. Today, Democrats refuse to even acknowledge the existence of women, or recognize them as unique beings with unique abilities. While radical liberals are taking away the advancement and protection that generations of women have fought for. Republicans must stand up and acknowledge these basic biological truths. As a father of three daughters, I am proud to help lead this resolution and affirm the legal protections afforded to them under federal law.”
according to a press release by the Republican Study Committee, H. Res. 1136 is also supported by several outside women’s organizations such as the Independent Women’s Law Center, Concerned Women for America LAC, Women’s Liberation Front and the Eagle Forum.
