Today, the U.S. Senate confirmed President Biden’s nominee for Assistant Secretary for Health, Rachel Levine, by a 52-48 vote. Only two Republicans joined all Democrats in voting to confirm Levine.

 

In response, Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement:

 

“Many will no doubt characterize the Senate’s confirmation of Rachel Levine today as a historic occasion. And they aren’t necessarily wrong. For perhaps the first time ever, the position of Assistant Secretary for Health will be filled by someone who has openly and vocally advocated for allowing children to undergo sex-change procedures. This is indeed an unprecedented moment.

 

“But while President Biden and Democrats may have fooled voters last fall into believing such an extreme position wasn’t a part of their agenda, they will not be able to do so next time around. Every Democrat in the Senate is now on record as supporting childhood sex changes, and they will have to answer for it to their voters. Make no mistake: this overreach by left-wing Democrats will have political consequences in 2022 and beyond.”

 

In The Federalist today, APP’s Jon Schweppe detailed how Democrats have gone all in supporting childhood sex changes, and how Republicans have begun to push back — specifically through legislation recently introduced by Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.). You can read Schweppe’s full piece here.
