Congressman Biggs Votes NO on the (IN)Equality Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Andy Biggs voted against H.R. 5, the (IN)Equality Act. Congressman Biggs released the following statement:
“The Equality Act endangers the safety and well-being of our families. Restaurants, gyms, and schools will be required to allow men to enter women’s restrooms, and women will be incapable of reaching their highest potential in sports if they are forced to compete against men. Health care providers may be forced to offer abortion procedures, and health insurance plans may have to cover elective abortions. Religious freedom, freedom of expression, and freedom of association guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution are also under assault with this radical legislation. An individual’s religious views will be abated, and the Left will force all Americans to conform to their ideology.
“H.R. 5 is the most recent example of Democrats’ efforts to control every aspect of American lives. Centralizing power in the federal government will allow Democrats to incriminate those who oppose their radical agenda. I unequivocally oppose this bill and will continue to fight against the tyrannical views of the Left.”
Congressman Andy Biggs is a third-term Representative from Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District, representing parts of Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and Queen Creek. Congressman Biggs is a member of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Reform committees. He lives with his wife, Cindy, in Gilbert.
