“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” – Isaiah 1:17
Title IX became the law of the land here in the United States in June of 1972. The aim of Title IX was to put an end to sexism and make certain that female athletes were provided the same opportunities in women’s sports as males are in men’s sports.
The Biden Administration in a radical effort is trying to undermine the protections Title IX affords to female athletes and women sports in the name of “inclusivity.” The Biden White House is attempting to alter the straightforward language of Title IX to redefine “sex” from referring to one’s biological makeup to referring to one’s “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”
Practically, this would undermine state laws, like Kentucky’s “Save Women’s Sports Act” that was passed in 2022, which protects women’s sports from being infiltrated and dominated by biological males who identify as transgender females. Nineteen other states throughout our nation have also passed similar laws in order to protect and save women’s sports.
Thankfully, yesterday, female athletes and women’s sports experienced a massive victory. The United States Congress is now taking up this important issue and acting to save female athletics. The United States House of Representatives in a 219-203 vote passed H.R. 734, the federal “Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act.” It is of utmost importance that the United States Senate acts accordingly on this legislative measure so that American female athletes are allowed to compete on a level and fair playing field.
LET US PRAY…
Father, we praise You that the U.S. House of Representatives acted correctly and righteously in passing the “Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act.” Lord, may each and every U.S. Senator be convicted by Your Spirit to vote favorably for this important bill. Father, help us to always do good, seek justice, and correct oppression. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
