FAKE Amendment: Virginia Democrats Ratify Equal Rights Amendment…. that No Longer Exists
NPR reported on January 15, 2020 that Virginia became the “pivotal” 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.
However, there is reason to believe that this vote was a sham.
Jarrett Stepman of the Daily Signal tweeted, “This is highly deceptive coming from a news outlet. The argument that the old ERA is viable is legally dubious, as @TomJipping has written: https://www.heritage.org/the-constitution/report/the-1972-equal-rights-amendment-can-no-longer-be-ratified-because-it-no”

Thomas Jipping of the Heritage Foundation set the record straight:
“When the 1972 ERA’s deadline passed without ratification by three-fourths of the states, the proposed amendment expired and is no longer pending. The 1972 ERA, therefore, can no longer be ratified—because it no longer exists.”
According to the ERA’s provisions, there is a guarantee of “equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”
“The Virginia Senate voted 28-12 and the House of Delegates 59-41 to approve the ERA,” NPR’s Sarah McCammon reported.
However, another point that social engineers refuse to acknowledge is that 4 states have rescinded their ratification of the ERA.
One Twitter user noted, “Also four states have rescinded their ratification so they are really the 34th state.”

The ERA is a socially radical constitutional amendment that would further entrench public administration in America.
America has too many laws and regulations as it is. Approving the ERA would only make the American administrative state even larger.
