So-called Conservative Legislators Cave to LGBT Agenda

Jul 14, 2017

The House of Representatives voted 209 to 214 yesterday to defeat the amendment would have put an end to the use of military funding for “sex change” surgeries. There are 24 Republicans who voted on the side of the LGBT lobby to defeat the amendment.

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler’s amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act would have represented a unique opportunity, in a united Congress, to put an end to this abuse of our military and of American taxpayer dollars, by putting an end to the use of defense funding to pay for genital-mutilating “sex reassignment surgeries.” The new amendment would have made it so “funds available to the Department of Defense may not be used to provide medical treatment (other than mental health treatment) related to gender transition to a person entitled to medical care.”

 This heinous abuse of presidential power was saved from repeal only by the efforts of 24 Republican members of congress who went against their clear duty to protect the readiness, safety and privacy of military men and women.

 The following is a list of the Republicans who voted against this measure:

Amash – Michigan 3rd District
