‘We are witnessing the greatest assault on religious freedom, biological reality, and parental rights ever seen in the U.S. Congress.’

WASHINGTON, — The U.S. House of Representatives voted 224 to 206 today to pass the “Equality Act,” which would write transgenderism into federal civil rights law, compel medical professionals to commit abortions and transgender surgeries, and expand taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.
During the hearing, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) questioned Dr. Levine, who if confirmed would be the highest-ranking transgender public official in the U.S., about her thoughts on children undergoing medical treatment to change their gender, calling the treatment “genital mutilation.”
Ahead of the Democratic-led House’s scheduled “Equality Act” vote Thursday, the U.S. Conference of Catholics Bishops publicly criticized the bill while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Biden, both Catholic politicians, support the legislation.
Five USCCB chairmen wrote a letter to lawmakers in opposition to the bill.
