Today, Concerned Women for America joined forces with other women’s groups and Rep. Mary Miller (R-Illinois) at a Capitol Hill press conference following the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).

The ERA would allow federal courts and legislative powers to reinterpret every law making a distinction based on “sex” or “gender.” This means that any limits on abortion or denying taxpayer-funded abortions would be seen as sex discrimination. Women-only safe spaces like sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms, or domestic violence shelters could be seen as a form of sex discrimination. A woman could potentially be forced into military service against her will.
