Republicans have introduced a “Women’s Bill of Rights” in order to protect females based on their biological sex.
Rep. Debbie Lesko of Arizona led the introduction of the legislation Thursday morning with the Republican Study Committee.
The bill says the legislation is necessary to establish in order to “reaffirm legal protections afforded to women under Federal law” because males and females have biological differences.
It notes that only females are able to “get pregnant, give birth, breastfeed children” and that males are typically larger and possess greater strength than females.
“I am proud to introduce the Women’s Bill of Rights to affirm the importance of acknowledging women and their unique and distinguishing characteristics and contributions to our nation,” Lesko told Fox News Digital.
“As the Left continues to erase women, we must fight for women and their place in our society. Whether it’s keeping the word ‘mother’ in written law, or ensuring women’s domestic violence shelters do not have to accept biological men, we must stand up for women,” she added.
Reps. Mary Miller of Illinois and Diana Harshbarger of Tennessee are leading the bill with Lesko and RSC chairman Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana.
Cosponsoring the bill are Reps. Claudia Tenney of New York, Vicky Hartzler of Missouri, Victoria Spartz of Indiana, Ronny Jackson of Texas and Doug LaMalfa of California.
“The modern Democrat party has put the Left’s woke agenda before the rights of women. These days, Democrats refuse to even admit women exist or recognize them as unique beings, with unique abilities,” Banks told Fox.
Recent issues of male and female biology have included sports, with transgender woman Lia Thomas racing at the 2022 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championship, and the left using terms like “birthing person” and “pregnant person”.
