“So, God created man in His own image; in the image of God, He created him; male and female He created them.” – Genesis 1:2
Fair competition and equality in women’s sports are being threatened. 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 (NCAA).
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 is a girl, is allowed to compete with the biological girls because of his natural endurance and strength, he steals the prize.
SB156, a bill that would promote fairness in women’s sports, has been introduced by Sen. Beth Mizell (R-District 12). The bill has been assigned to the Louisiana Senate Education Committee. The chairman and members of the committee need to hear from you (particularly if you are a constituent of a committee member) about the importance of ensuring girls have a fair playing field in sports.
