Urgent: Tell OK Lt. Gov. Pinnell and Senate to block Pres. Biden's transgender order

Thursday, May 20, 2021 1:55 PM


The Oklahoma State Senate has the opportunity to protect girls and young women in the state from President Joe Biden's transgender executive order. His order allows boys, claiming to be girls, to compete in girls' high school and college sports. 

The Oklahoma Senate, under the leadership of Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell (R), now has the opportunity to pass Save Women's Sports Act (SB2). The Senate must resist the liberal 'woke' message of insisting on allowing biological males in girls' sports. If liberals have their way, they will destroy girls' sports in Oklahoma public schools and universities. 

Take action now! Your personal support is critical. Anti-women organizations like ACLU of Oklahoma and Freedom Oklahoma have targeted lawmakers, hoping to pressure them into caving to their demands to erase women's rights. There’s been no action on the bill since the bill was transmitted back to the Senate. 

AFA's legislative director contacted Lt. Gov. Pinnell's office to determine if the Senate leader had made a comment on the bill. Pinnell's office responded saying he had not commented on the bill and had no plans to do so. The 'woke' opposition may be the reason Senate leadership has allowed the bill to stall.

There are TWO action items you need to do now to help ensure this bill gets passed to preserve a level playing field for our women and girls:

1. Call Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell at (405) 521-2161. Leave a message asking Lt. Gov. Pinnell to make Senate Bill 2 a legislative priority to save women's sports in Oklahoma. 

2. Email Lt. Gov. Pinnell and your state senator. Urge them to advance and support SB2, the Save Women's Sports Act!

State Rep. Toni Hasenbeck (R) said in a recent statement about the Save Women's Sports Act:

Science tells us that males are generally bigger, faster, and stronger than females. They have larger hearts and lungs, denser bones, and stronger muscles. This allows them to jump higher, run faster and lift more weights, even after several years under the effects of hormone therapy. Similarly gifted and trained males will always have physical advantages over females—that's the reason we have women's sports.

Pres. Biden's order allows nothing less than cheating and will ruin women's sports, and it's about to happen here in Oklahoma unless Senate leadership pass the bill out of committee for a floor vote and send it to Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) to sign into law.
