In 2018, a judge blocked Idaho from disallowing its citizens the option to change the sex listed on their birth certificate. The court claimed such a law would violate the Equal Protection Clause in the US Constitution, due to such a policy being discriminatory against transgenders.
The Idaho legislature passed a bill defying this ruling on Tuesday. The legislation is now on the governor’s desk waiting to be signed.
The bill makes it so that individuals would only be able to alter a birth certificate within a year of birth.
They also would only be allowed to make a change to the sex of their birth certificate if their was an actual error needing correction. They would not be able to make such changes in order to align the sex on their birth certificate with a supposed gender or sex identity that is not in-line with their biological sex.
It’s clear that allowing anyone to change the sex on their birth certificate based off of an arbitrary self-proclaimed gender identity would have negative consequences.
Alterations to one’s birth certificate that caused a discrepancy between their unchangeable biological sex and the sex/gender listed on their birth certificate creates confusion for gender specific sports, jails/prisons, public facilities (like locker rooms & bathrooms), etc. These are the problems Idaho is trying to avoid.
The bill states that allowing illegitimate changes to birth certificates based on arbitrary gender identity obviously “undermines the government’s interest in having accurate vital records.”
Supporters of the bill, like representative Julianne Young, insist that “safeguarding the accuracy of our vital records is a vital part of preserving the ability of the state to protect the public health and safety.”
This bill isn’t the only Republican backed piece of legislation making waves in Idaho. The House and Senate have also sent Pro-Life legislation to the desk of the governor.
One Pro-Life bill in particular outlaws abortion, if (or when) Roe vs Wade is overturned. It would make it a felony for a doctor to end the life of an unborn child, with few exceptions (rape, incest, & life of the mother).
Bills like these two are similar in that they show both the wild hypocrisy of the Left and the complete lack of concern for vulnerable populations.
The Left claims the mantle of ‘pro-science,’ but rejects clear biological facts. They insist that an offspring of humans is not a human being because of it’s location and deny the obvious biological reality that men are different than women.
They also pretends to be concerned for the most vulnerable. Yet, they ignore the atrocious mass slaughter of the most defenseless humans of all and refuse to defend girls who are forced to share locker rooms with and compete against biological males in sporting events.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
