“So, God Created man in His own image, in the image of God, He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:27

 

HB1387, a bill to help ensure fairness in women’s sports, has been introduced by Delegate Karen Greehalgh (R-District 85). HB1387 has been assigned to the House Education Committee. The Higher Education Subcommittee is expected to hear HB1387 this coming Monday morning, January 30, 2023. It is important that the Chairman and members of the committee hear from you.

 

Fair competition and equality in women’s sports are being threatened, and this legislation will combat that. Individual male born athletes should not be eligible to participate on an athletic team that is exclusively for females – from kindergarten to high school to college.

 

Many biological girls train and work hard to excel in their chosen sport with the goal of a college scholarship. When a biological boy who thinks he’s a girl is allowed to compete with the biological girls because of his natural endurance and strength, he steals the prize. This ought not to be so.

Please forward this information to family and friends.

 

Please PRAY: Father God, we give thanks for another day of life. We give thanks for Delegate Greenhalgh and her willingness to file HB 1387. We pray for the Virginia House of Delegates Education Committee and their handling of this legislation. We pray that the committee members will not be overcome with timidity and “political correctness” and will handle this issue with wisdom and courage. In Jesus’ name, we pray, AMEN.

 

Looking Unto Jesus,
