Equality Act guts every pro-life protection ever passed into law

Equality Act guts every pro-life protection ever passed into law
In the history of bad bills, there are a lot of doozies. Just in the last handful of months, we've had a Democratic grab bag of everything from abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Green New Deal. But nothing -- not even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (R-N.Y.) crusade against airplanes and cows -- compares to the one measure that out-radicals them all: the Equality Act. And the worst mistake any of us can make is not taking the threat seriously.

Maybe, like a lot of Americans, you think the Democrats' H.R. 5 is just about sex and gender. Well, think again. This isn't just the most extreme LGBT bill ever written. This is one-stop-shopping for the worst the far-Left agenda has to offer -- including, we've discovered, the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion this country has ever seen. That's right. The Equality Act doesn't just torch religious freedom and the First Amendment, it guts every pro-life protection ever passed into law.

On the Hill, the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus is just one of the groups frantically trying to warn members. Now that the text of the bill has been released, staffers have had time to comb the language for landmines. And based on what our team has seen, there's a field of them. Believe it or not, Democrats didn't just expand the meaning of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" -- they've also defined it to mean "pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition." In other words, under the terms of this proposal, "pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition... shall not receive less favorable treatment than other physical conditions."
