From Marlene Hinton, PhD, PC/SC:
[Send an email for the Mesa address email@example.com]
You are hereby invited to the HINTON home THIS THURSDAY, 31 Jan, at 7 p.m. to hear our State senator, Tyler Pace [R-LD25], explain his co-sponsorship of SCR1006 (https://legiscan.com/AZ/text/SCR1006/2019 ), a resolution calling for support of the EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT as Arizona law.
While we thought this was dead 40 years ago, the next generation has been coached to cheer it. Activists apparently view the slim Republican majorities in both Arizona legislative bodies as a good time to impose this seemingly innocent no-brainer bill on a vulnerable state. This resolution was co-sponsored by two “Conservative Republican Senators” with bipartisan support.
The text of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) remains unchanged from 1972:
Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification
The reasons I oppose it remain unchanged:
1. Attitudes about gender, family, and related morality are often interwoven with deeply-held religious convictions.
Federal laws conflicting with those beliefs violate the First Amendment, threaten freedom, and jeopardize the foundation and future of our nation: the family.
We have the opportunity to act! To start, come on THURSDAY with all your friends and relatives and your friends' relatives and your relatives' friends & all their neighbors and acquaintances, hear what Tyler has to say, ask questions, and figure out how you can help stop this toxic proposal.
