Thank you to everyone for contacting the House Human Services Committee! Your calls and emails relating to fair competition and equality in girls’ sports for all North Dakota female athletes made a difference! The committee gave both HB 1249 and HB 1489 a “Do Pass” recommendation by a vote of 9 to 3.

There is no denial, “No male, however he identifies, will ever shed his XY chromosomes, menstruate, or give birth,” said Penny Young Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America. Policies allowing for inclusion in sex-specific sports on the basis of “gender identity” have no substantiation in biological fact or valid medical research to defend males competing in female athletics.

HB 1249 and HB 1489 will protect women’s sports at North Dakota high schools and institutions of higher education by “designating athletic teams and sports for male, female or coed participation.” This legislation prohibits male-born athletes from entering women’s sports as transwomen.

CWA of North Dakota submitted testimony on both bills. See HB 1249 and HB 1489.

It’s not over! We need to urge all of the members of the North Dakota House of Representatives to vote in favor of HB 1249 and HB 1489! They must hear from those who stand with us to ensure fair competition and equality in women’s sports!

ACT TODAY! Please email, call, or tweet your State Representative through our Action Center HERE and urge them to protect women’s sports. Girls should not be forced to compete against men playing on women’s sports teams. 

Forward this email to family and friends! Every email message and every phone call are counted!

Please Pray: Pray for our legislators that God would give them the wisdom and understanding to accomplish His purposes.

“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

Please vote to protect women’s sports at high schools and institutions of higher education.   Protect equal opportunity and a fair playing field for girls’ and women’s sports. Individual male-born athletes should not be eligible to participate on an athletic team that is exclusively for females.
