    Surge Summary: The State Legislature of Utah exhibited refreshing courage and common sense recently in defying the governor’s veto and upholding a ban on male students competing against women in school sports.

    by The Ruth Institute

    Late last week, Utah joined a growing list of states protecting women’s sports by assuring that only women will compete against women. A two-thirds majority of both legislative houses voted to override the governor’s veto of a bill that bans a male student from competing on a female team.

    It took less than 30 minutes to pass the override.

    Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., congratulated the legislature for “choosing common sense and biology over gender ideology.”

    Morse observed: “Opponents of this and similar laws are attacking the measures as ‘discriminatory.’ What’s discriminatory is forcing women to compete against male athletes who claim to be women.”

    “Due to the differences in strength and endurance, male athletes have a distinct advantage. That’s why the University of Pennsylvania swimmer who calls himself Lia Thomas was at best mediocre when he competed against males. But on the women’s team, Thomas broke records left and right.”

    “’Transgenderism’ is the next logical step in the Sexual Revolution, which is based on intimidation and fraud. If you can get people to say a man is a woman, you can get them to say almost anything, no matter how absurd.”

    “In place of ‘mother,’ we now have ‘birthing person.’ OB/GYNs now must deny the humanity of the unborn by designating a baby an ‘embryo’ or ‘fetus.’

    “Self-described ‘progressives’ demand we ‘follow the science,’ but science tells us an individual born a man will remain one until he dies, regardless of his preferred pronouns or how he alters his body. There is nothing ‘progressive’ about this science denial.”

    The Ruth Institute is one of the leading critics of transgenderism and its harmful effects. See the Transgender Resource Center for policy papers, interviews, and personal testimonies.

    The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization, leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love. The Institute’s 2022 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution is June 24-25 in Lake Charles, LA.

    Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse is the author of The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies are Destroying Lives, Smart Sex: Finding Life-Long Love in a Hook Up World, and Love and Economics: It Takes a Family to Raise a Village.
