Now that the Pennsylvania Legislature is in recess until September, I wanted to update you on the Women’s Sports Act and remind you about the upcoming Pennsylvania March for Life.
Women’s Sport Act
As promised, Gov. Tom Wolf (Democrat) vetoed HB972, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. This bill would have provided a fair playing field for female athletes by banning biological boys identifying as girls from participating in girls’ sports at the K-12 and college levels. Gov. Wolf’s veto insults every Pennsylvania girl working to excel in her sport. Women’s sports should not be open to just anyone, and we will continue to stand up for the rights, safety, and privacy of female athletes. Since supporting women in sports is historically a bipartisan position, my question is, why doesn’t Gov. Wolf want to protect women?
Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Pennsylvania has been at the center of the fight to stand for the truth about the sexes and to save women’s sports. We are standing up for the rights of female athletes, and we will not back down. We sincerely thank the Pennsylvania Legislature for standing on the side of female athletes and passing the legislation. We are also grateful to each of you who made calls, sent emails, and texts on the bill. You can read more about our efforts to fight for female athletes here and here.
