Women are Grieving as Biden Initiates Assault on Female Identity and the Sanctity of Human Life
Statement from Penny Young Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America:
“As women who stand for what it means to be female created in God’s image and bearers of human life, Concerned Women for America (CWA) is grieving today on the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
“This week, Joe Biden took his hand off the Holy Bible at his swearing-in and within hours began a full out assault on women and human life as president. It is only the beginning of his promised actions to erase women and force taxpayers to finance the killing of unborn babies, underscoring the dark consequences of this election.
“With the stroke of a pen, President Biden ordered federal agencies to replace the meaning of sex with “gender identity,” allowing any male to claim status as a woman. Let me be clear, CWA will never accept the identity theft of female dignity. We will actively oppose this policy along with every real feminist in America.
“Biden’s radical gender policy eviscerates protections for women in domestic violence shelters, prisons, and locker rooms. His order aims to repeal Title IX, a civil rights law enacted 48 years ago to advance women’s equal rights in education and athletics. Biden’s mandate rejects a sex-based standard in women’s sports, even though poll after poll shows 75-80% of Americans oppose allowing biological males to compete against female athletes in women’s sports.
“With equal audacity, President Biden dispatched Dr. Anthony Fauci to the World Health Organization to preview his aggressive abortion agenda. Dr. Fauci announced the repeal of Mexico City Policy, which prevents taxpayer funds from being used to promote abortion as women’s health care overseas – a restriction 75% of the American people support. Of all people, Dr. Fauci should be unifying the country to fight COVID-19, not doing Biden’s bidding to promote a culture of death.
“Biden has nominated an abortion radical, Xavier Becerra, to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. As California’s Attorney General, Becerra aggressively sued the Little Sisters of the Poor and other states for their laws to limit abortion. Biden has promised to repeal Title X regulations and the Hyde Amendment, forcing American taxpayers to fund the destruction of innocent human life on demand, despite the fact a majority of Americans oppose these repeals.
“Unity is clearly not the objective of the Biden Administration. Americans should be shocked and appalled by the deeds this President has done to divide this country in just his first hours in office.”
