The One Rick Scott Policy Position Every Republican Should Support
Sen. Rick Scott’s policy plan to help Republicans win back Congress in 2022 has come in for a lot of criticism, some of it deservedly deserved. But there is one position included in the agenda that should be non-negotiable for all GOP candidates: “Men are men, women are women, and unborn babies are babies.”
“We believe in science,” says Scott’s diary. “Men and women are biologically different, ‘male and female He created them.’ Modern technology has confirmed that abortion takes a human life. Facts are facts, the earth is round, the sun is hot, there are two sexes and abortion stops a beating heart. To say otherwise is to deny the science.
This position is vital if Republicans are to successfully combat the Left’s radical gender ideology and abortion bigotry.
There is no place for “gender identity” in civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex – such provisions should be removed immediately if women-only spaces, including halls swimwear and sports teams, should remain women-only spaces.
And if Republicans believe, as they say, that an abortion is the taking of an innocent human life, then they must do everything possible to protect that life. It starts with removing all federal funding from organizations that sponsor and perform abortions, like Planned Parenthood. Introduce laws to hold delinquent fathers financially responsible for their children and create financial incentives, such as increased child tax credits, so that mothers are not left alone to bear the burden of parenting. children. More importantly, Republicans must pass legislation recognizing that 14th Amendment protections apply to unborn children.
Few of these policy positions are new to Republicans. But few of these policies ever took shape, even when Republicans controlled the federal government.
This must change. All GOP candidates should be required to publicly state and confirm that they oppose the inclusion of “gender identity” in federal law and support an interpretation of the 14th Amendment that prohibits abortion and protects unborn life. Anything less, as Scott said, is a denial of science and common sense.
