A new ad campaign targeting swing states aims to warn voters against supporting Democratic politicians who support medicalized gender-transitioning of children and allowing boys who identify as transgender to compete in girls-only sports.
The conservative group, American Principles Project, released three digital political ads in Michigan last week (seen here, here and here), highlighting the views of Sen. Gary Peters, who’s up for reelection, and the Democratic nominee for president, former Vice President Joe Biden, both of whom support policies that would permit transgender-identifying boys to compete in girls’ athletic competitions.
A majority of Michigan voters, however, oppose allowing boys to compete in girls’ sports, according to an APP and SPRY Strategies poll conducted in July.
Some 78% of respondents said they opposed allowing biological males who say they identify as transgender to compete in girls’ sports. Likewise, 79% of Michigan voters indicated opposition to permitting transgender-identifying minors, those younger than 18, to undergo body-altering surgeries or take experimental puberty-blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones. Similar results were found in several other battleground states.
“After last month’s Democratic National Convention, it’s clear Joe Biden is trying to run a ‘back-to-normal’ campaign. But his platform is anything but normal — in fact, it’s more radical than ever,” Terry Schilling, APP’s executive director, said in a statement to The Christian Post about the ad campaign.
“Biden and his fellow Democrats have pledged to use the power of the federal government to destroy women’s sports and push young children into highly experimental and dangerous sex-change procedures. These are positions which the vast majority of American voters disagree with. And yet, Democrats are rarely called out on it, getting a free pass from the media and even Republicans.”
APP intends to change that dynamic, he said, adding that in the weeks ahead, they’ll be working to make sure voters nationwide become more aware of these issues.
