Arizona governor pushes through huge wins for conservatives
Pro-life measures: Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a 15-week abortion ban. “In Arizona, we know there is immeasurable value in every life — including preborn life,” Ducey said in a signing letter. “I believe it is each state’s responsibility to protect them.” Florida lawmakers passed a similar bill that Gov. Ron Desantis is expected to pass.
Protecting girl's sports: Another bill passed by Gov. Ducey will ban transgender girls—biological males—from playing on girls’ sports teams. “Every young Arizona athlete should have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities that give them a sense of belonging and allow them to grow and thrive,” Ducey said.
Banning gender reassignment surgeries for minors: The bill passed by Gov. Ducey ensures “that individuals undergoing irreversible gender reassignment surgery are of adult age.” Progressive democrats argue that the legislation removes parental rights to put children through irreversible surgery.
Requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote: The bill will require all Arizonans to provide proof of citizenship and residency to register to vote for federal elections. Arizona residents are already required to provide evidence for state elections. Progressives argue that it will result in voter suppression.
Disney executive admits to pushing progressive LGBTQ+ agenda
Background: During a staff meeting, Disney executive producer Latoya Raveneau announced she was advancing a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” to drive more progressive LGBTQ ideology into children's entertainment.
- The bill prevents teachers from teaching sexual orientation and gender identity to kindergarten through third-grade students.
Latoya Raveneau is an executive producer on the upcoming Disney Junior musical series “Rise Up, Sing Out,” designed to push elements of critical race theory and specifically “fight racism and celebrate back culture.”
Her words: “In my little pocket of Proud Family Disney TVA, the showrunners were super welcoming...to my not-at-all-secret gay agenda... I was just, wherever I could, adding queerness...No one would stop me, and no one was trying to stop me.”
Taskforce: Her statement comes after Disney announced a task force to create more children’s LGBTQ content in response to Florida’s recent anti-grooming bill.
