What About Women’s Rights?

“Males are physically different than females. That’s a scientific fact.”

Those words from Jennifer Van Pelt, the mother of an Alaska high school girl, who was bumped from receiving an award at the state track meet by a male runner who claimed to identify as a female.

Trending: Is the Church Becoming Too Political?

As the Alaska high school is finding out, that’s what happens when you let boys compete in girls sporting events, and the female athletes are crying foul.

Stephanie Williams of the Alaska Family Council responded, “It is not fair, and it is not right for our female athletes, and we have a responsibility to protect our girls that have worked really hard – that are working toward college scholarships.”

Unless this policy is reversed, you can wave goodbye to female sports teams and female sports scholarships. It’s time to speak up the rights of women.
