Democrats introduced the Equality Act to Congress last
week. “The so-called Equality Act undermines fundamental freedoms by mandating a single viewpoint on sexual orientation and gender identity,” said Emilie Kao, director of Heritage’s DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society. For example, under the Equality Act, parents would be pressured to consent to puberty blockers for their children at 11 years old, cross-sex hormones at 16 years old, and “sex reassignment” at 18 years old. Additionally, employers and workers would be required to affirm same-sex marriage through spousal benefits and provide medical insurance for “gender transition.” And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
