Published October 21, 2021

Journal of Christian Legal Thought

In this article for the Christian Legal Society’s Journal of Christian Legal Thought, EPPC Kate O’Beirne Fellow Mary Rice Hasson examines the Equality Act and gender ideology, demonstrating that they privilege “gender identity” claims over the sex-based rights of females and thereby lead to erasing females, destroying the difference that grounds the idea of woman and women’s rights. She closes with a call to defend the truth about the human person or witness the erasure of human beings.
