Tell your representative to vote for Representative Vicky Hartzler’s (R-Mo.) amendment to the NDAA, to roll back the requirement that the military recruit people who identify as transgender, to stop taxpayer dollars from funding gender transition efforts, and to include conscience protections for service members who do not wish to provide or affirm gender transition efforts.

by Peter Sprigg

Peter Sprigg is Senior Fellow for Family Policy Studies at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Townhall on June 30, 2017.

by Arina Grossu

Arina Grossu is Director of the Center for Human Dignity at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Federalist on July 12, 2017.
