TX Governor Signs County Clerk Freedom Bill

Gov. Abbott of Texas signed the County Clerk Freedom Bill, which allows county clerks to leave their names off marriage licenses and applications if they object to a marriage on religious grounds. This is good news for those county clerks who don’t want to have their names attached to a same-sex “marriage” in the Lone Star State. The bill goes into effect September 1.

TX Gov. Abbott Protects Privacy and Grants Dignity to the Unborn

We are happy to share two pieces of good news from our family policy friends at Texas Values and both relate to Gov. Abbott.

First, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called a special legislative session beginning July 18 to, among other things, pursue passage of legislation to protect privacy for women and children in bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers in public schools and government buildings.

Second, the governor of the Lone Star State signed into law a ban on dismemberment abortions, making Texas the eighth state to protect the preborn from such a heinous act. The Texas Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act also gives dignity to aborted babies by requiring that they be cremated and buried.

Texas Bathroom Bill Passes Senate

The Texas Senate passed SB6, the state’s Privacy Act, 21-10. The bill requires that bathrooms and locker rooms be designated for use based on biology with separate facilities being made available for those confused about their sex. The bill would apply to schools and government buildings. The bill exempts private businesses. The bill now heads to the Texas House.

‘Transgender’ Texas Wrestler’s Win Raises Questions

Texas high school wrestler Mack Beggs, a girl taking hormones to become a boy, just won the state girl’s wrestling championship. While the LGBT community is celebrating a victory for “transgenderism,” the situation raises serious questions about the future of sports and the University Interscholastic League. Should a biological female taking testosterone be disqualified for doping, regardless of whether the drugs are for enhanced performance or for “transitioning”? And if sexual lines are blurred with more and more “transgenders” participating, what is the point in having boys and girls sports teams?

Privacy Bill Advances in Texas

While Tennessee Rep. Mark Pody deferred this week’s hearing on his bill to protect the privacy and safety of men and women in bathrooms and locker rooms, a similar bill moved forward in Texas this week. That state’s Senate State Affairs Committee approved its bill by a vote of 7-1. North Carolina’s. Lt. Gov. Dan Forest testified that the boycott of his state over its privacy bill affected their state’s economy by about 1/10th of one percent, hardly an amount, he said, worth giving “a man a free pass to enter a shower or locker room for any nefarious purpose.”
