    Discrimination against girls

    I have been coaching high school girls in cross country and track for over 40 years. There are two areas where girls are being discriminated against by our federal and state governments. First, letting transgender females born male compete against females from birth in athletics. This is a travesty. Girls do not have the biological or muscle strength to compete successfully against a transgender female.

    Another area of discrimination against girls is when they have an unplanned pregnancy. A girl needs help and support with counseling, medical, finance and housing assistance, as well as spiritual care and love. We have Pregnancy Care Centers that provide everything the girl needs instead of choosing abortion. The PCC is staffed by unpaid volunteers that provide the help needed. The PCC is kept open by donations. Adoption is another option the mother has if she wishes. This help continues after pregnancy until the mother and baby are able. The Biden administration is trying to stop financial aid to help Pregnancy Care Centers.
