10 Reasons to Reject the Equal Rights Amendment
By Kathy Valente   |   10.28.17
In an attempt to advance the “War on Woman” narrative, the pink-hat crowd wants to resurrect the 40-year battle to amend the U.S. Constitution and eliminate all sex distinctions. It is absolutely vital that we convince center-right lawmakers that this legislation requires a NO vote.

The March for Science is Really a March for Conformity
I am a scientist, but I won’t be joining the worldwide March for Science April 22. That’s because it’s really a march for something that undermines good science. March organizers say “our diversity is our greatest strength.” They say “a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process.” But they don’t really mean it. Their passion for diversity extends to race, religion, nationality, gender and sexual orientation, but not to opinions, perspectives and ideas.
