Congresswoman Mary Miller (R-IL) issued the following statement in support of a young girl from the Springfield, Illinois area who was kicked off her swim team for objecting to men using the girls’ locker room.
“This is a travesty,” said Miller. “This young girl was simply exercising her right to privacy and safety. She should not be punished for defending herself and her teammates. In Congress, I am proud to defend our daughters from the Biden Administration and Governor Pritzker’s radical “gender ideology” agenda that will make this an everyday occurrence for young girls across our country.”
“The YMCA should immediately reverse their decision and apologize to this young girl and her family. Men should NEVER be allowed to violate young girls’ locker rooms and bathrooms. Any adult coach or organization like the YMCA that allows this to happen because of radical leftist politics should be ashamed of themselves,” said Miller.
“Governor Pritzker continues to promote policies that put our daughters at risk. His failure to address the concerns of parents and protect the safety and privacy of young girls in Illinois is deeply concerning. This is a matter of basic safety, security, and common sense. Parents must stand with these girls and end this madness!”
In a speech on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congresswoman Miller spoke in support of this young girl, her family, and in defense of our daughters from radical transgender policies.
