Dear Marriage Supporter,
As you know from my email from earlier in the week, NOM is working on a critical legal brief to challenge President Obama's authority to decree that men can be women, and women can be men, by claiming a "gender identity" that is opposite to their actual biological sex. Obama is attempting to impose this dangerous ideology on children in our public schools and we are determined to stop him.
I just spoke with Dr. John Eastman, NOM's chairman and one of the nation's top constitutional lawyers, about the brief. He tells me that it will be a powerful refutation of this insane gender policy that President Obama seeks to impose on our schools and throughout society.
But in order to complete and file this brief, we need to raise $12,000 in the next week. Will you help us with an immediate contribution of $25, $35, $50, $100, $250 or even $500 or more?
Led by Dr. Eastman, we have a team of lawyers and researchers working hard on this critical legal brief. We're urging the US Supreme Court to take up the case of G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board so that we can put an end to President Obama's dangerous policy that risks the privacy and safety of children in school.
"G.G." is a female student who claims a male "gender identity." When she began to use the restrooms reserved for males, irate parents flooded the school board with complaints. In response, the school reiterated its policy that students must use restrooms based on their actual sex, but attempted to accommodate her by constructing a single-stall restroom that she could use, along with other students who sought privacy. However, this was not acceptable to "G.G." who was working with the ACLU and claimed she was "stigmatized" every time she went to the restroom. She sued the school board in federal court, claiming their restroom policy violated Title IX's prohibition on sex discrimination, but lost when the federal judge appropriately ruled that Title IX does not recognize "gender identity" as a substitute for biologic sex. Unfortunately, the 4th District Court of Appeals overturned the judge's ruling, citing President Obama's "guidance letter" to schools asserting that "sex" under federal law includes "gender identity."
The US Supreme Court then unexpectedly stepped into the fray, issuing an emergency order on a 5-3 vote to put the appeals court ruling on hold, a big win for the school district that wants to protect the privacy and safety of students in school. Now the school district is asking the Supreme Court to take their case so it can definitively rule that federal law does not require schools to open the most intimate areas of campus — restrooms, locker rooms and showers — to students of the opposite sex.
NOM's legal brief will urge the US Supreme Court to take this case so that it can rule against President Obama and put an end to his attempt to redefine gender.
But in order to complete our brief and file it with the US Supreme Court, we need to raise $12,000 in the next week. Can you help us with an emergency financial contribution?
It is critical that we succeed in convincing the US Supreme Court to stop President Obama from his attempt to single-handedly rewrite federal law to decree that men can be women, and women can be men, at whim, simply by declaring a gender-identity opposite to their actual gender.
Obama is hell-bent on imposing his dangerous policy in his quest to fundamentally remake America. In addition to imposing it on our nation's public schools, he's required medical professionals and health insurance plans to provide gender transition services and procedures, and the other day he extended his order to housing, including emergency shelters! Under President Obama's insane gender ideology, a battered woman who has suffered terrible abuse at the hands of a man will now have to share her shelter with men. This is how far President Obama is willing to go to appease the LGBT extremists who are his strongest backers.
Please act today with an emergency financial contribution of whatever you can afford to help us stop President Obama from redefining gender just as he succeeded in redefining marriage. A contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $250 or more will make a big difference in helping us complete and file our legal brief. Some supporters blessed with resources might be able to make a gift of $500, $1,000, $2,500 or even $5,000. Other families sacrifice to give $10 or $15 to help. Whatever amount is right for you, please act today so that we can complete this critical task.
Thank you for all you've done and for acting at this critical time.
