Republican Lawmakers Lead National Movement to Thwart the ‘Gender Agenda’

WASHINGTON / March 8, 2023 – The “Gender Agenda” refers to the movement to promote gender transitioning, curtail parental rights, allow biological males to compete in women’s sports, curtail free speech, and diminish due process on college campuses. A major goal of the Gender Agenda is to overhaul the Title IX law to redefine sex to include “gender identity.”

Republican lawmakers across the country have been at the forefront of efforts to stop the Gender Agenda. Following is a listing of measures introduced thus far in Congress in 2023:

  1. Greg Steube: Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act (H.R. 734) [1]
  2. Marjorie Taylor Greene: Protect Children’s Innocence Act (H.R. 8731) [2]
  3. Jeff Van Drew: My Choice, My Child Act of 2023 (H.R. 216) [3]
  4. Julia Letlow: Parents Bill of Rights (H.R.5) [4]
  5. Debbie Lesko: Parental Rights Amendment (H. J. Res 38) [5]
  6. Jim Banks: Protecting Minors from Medical Malpractice Act (H.R. 1276) [6]
  7. Tim Scott: PROTECT Kids Act (S. 200) [7]
  8. Tommy Tuberville: Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2023 (S. 613) [8]

In addition, Congressman Jim Banks is spearheading a new group called the House Anti-Woke Caucus, now with over 25 members [9.

The following state-level bills already have been enacted into law in 2023:

  1. Tennessee: SB 0001 – Prohibits minors from receiving puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and transgender surgeries [10]
  2. Tennessee: HB 0009 – Outlaws drag shows in public spaces and restricts them to age-appropriate venues [11]
  3. South Dakota: Help Not Harm Act (HB 1080) – Prohibits certain medical and surgical interventions on minor patients [12]
  4. Mississippi: Regulate Experimental Adolescent Procedures (REAP) Act (H.B. 1125) – Forbids any person to “knowingly provide gender transition procedures to any person under eighteen years of age” or “engage in conduct that aids or abets” such procedures. [13]

To date, SAVE has identified 82 bills in 28 states, including proposals that address Parental Rights (36 bills), Gender Transitioning (29 bills), and Women’s Sports (16 bills).

At the recent Conservative Political Action Conference held near Washington DC, SAVE sponsored a booth titled, “Stop the Gender Agenda.” [14] At the booth, 377 individuals signed a petition to Stop the Gender Agenda. Signers included the Lieutenant Governor of a southern state, a woman who transitioned to the male sex and later de-transitioned to being female, and other persons from Spain, Peru, Austria, Norway, Sweden, and Japan.
