Joint Session of the United States Congress

We have written several times about the Obama Administration’s “guidelines” advising schools to let biological males who claim to be female use the girls’ restrooms, locker rooms, and similar facilities, and about the new Obamacare directive instructing doctors and hospitals to offer “gender transition” services (e.g. sex-reassignment surgery) despite the professional and conscientious objections many healthcare professionals have to such procedures.

This week Family Council joined pro-family organizations around the country in urging Congress to take decisive action against this federal overreach.

Family Council has signed a letter to Reps. Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, and Nancy Pelosi and Sens. Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid asking them to:

  • Introduce and pass legislation curtailing the Obama Administration’s actions; protecting students’ privacy and parents’ rights; and reassuring schools they will not lose federal funding if they ignore these federal “guidelines;”
  • Hold hearings to investigate the Obama Administration’s actions in promulgating these overreaching “guidelines;”
  • Withhold funding from any attempts by the federal Departments of Justice and Education to force these “guidelines” on schools.

You can read the letter–and the list of organization’s who have signed it with us–here.

Below is contact information you can use to encourage your congressman and Sens. Boozman and Cotton to take action on this issue as well.
