Stand with Female Athletes in South Carolina

Women and girls should not be forced to compete against men playing on women’s sports teams. Concerned Women for America (CWA) of South Carolina is proud to support H3477, The Save Women’s Sports Act. Read our letter of support for the bill here.

This legislation would prohibit biological men from competing on women’s scholastic sports teams and would ensure that female athletes will continue to be afforded the opportunity to compete on a level playing field. When boys compete in girls’ sports, equal opportunity is destroyed. Title IX closed the gap when it became a federal law in 1972 and established that women and girls have equal opportunities. This includes education and athletics.

H3477 legislation has been introduced in the House and referred to the Judiciary Committee, where it has stalled. We are urging the committee to take up this bill, and we need your help.

Please take action!

#1. Contact Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Chris Murphy, and the Speaker of the House, Rep. Jay Lucas, and let them know you want H3477 to be heard and voted on. Also, if you are a member of Concerned Women for America of South Carolina, be sure to let them know.

Chairman Murphy: 803-734-3120 or Contact Page
Speaker Lucas: 803-734-3125 or Contact Page

#2. Contact the bill sponsor, Ashley Trantham, and thank her for standing strong to protect women and girls.
Rep. Trantham: 803-212-6966 or Contact Page

#3. Please forward this e-mail to like-minded friends and family. Encourage them to pray and take action on behalf of this important legislation.

Keep this issue in prayer. We pray that the House leadership will see the importance of this legislation and that God would give them wisdom and discernment. We also pray for Rep. Ashley Trantham as she leads the fight on this issue. We pray that she continues to stay strong as the attacks continue.

God bless you for your faithfulness in prayer and action.
