What You Need to Know:

The following summary are bills we’ve highlighted that are specific to our focus, expertise, and interests, or made it to our watch list. To view the actual bill language or see who is sponsoring it, the bill title is linked for your convenience.  Green means we support the bill, red means we oppose it, and those with no official stance are simply in blue.

The bills are listed in numerical order. 

Bill statuses will either be listed as passed, signed, defeated, or expired. A bill that was defeated was voted down during session. A bill that expired was not voted down necessarily, but is now dead because the session is over. 

SOGI Ideology

Bill Status: PASSED

HCR 52 attempts to celebrate women… but can’t define womanhood.

How can we celebrate what we cannot define, or applaud what we want to erase?

Bill Status: PASSED

Resolutions are statements of what the legislature values, rather than changes of policies. Furthermore, unlike bills, resolutions can be brought to the floor without being placed on the agenda first. As a result, legislators may not have advance notice when resolutions are being heard.

House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 90 says that LGBTQ history should be taught to students from 7th-12th grade. 

The bill includes the two specific examples of the Stonewall riots of 1969 and the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting. 

This resolution will take effect in the 2024-25 school year.

What does this mean now for …
Parents: Now more than ever, it’s crucial to know what’s being taught in your child’s school. What’s most concerning is the wide open door this presents for more school-sanctioned, sexually-charged conversations with students. 

Watch especially for inappropriate material like what we saw earlier this year in Smyrna High School. If you hear of an incident like this in your child’s school, let us know using our incident report form. See our Parental Rights resource page for more tools and information.

When SOGI was added to Delaware law, the definition of the phrase was heavily debated. HB155 removes those hard fought definitions to now allow people to effectively change their orientation and identity by the moment.

Do you see how sexual predators can exploit such a broad definition of gender identity and sexual orientation?

HB199 is a bill that would amend Delaware’s Constitution to include sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) and disability as protected classes. By adding “SOGI” to the state’s Constitution, this bill completely redefines, voids, and erases the definition of “woman” throughout all of Delaware law. 

How can we protect what we cannot define? We can’t. 

HB199 annihilates women’s sports. HB 199 would allow anyone who claims to be a woman to compete as a woman. We’re already seeing it happen — women who have trained and sacrificed for years are losing scholarships and opportunities because men who identify as women are competing against them. 

HB199 equates sexual orientation and gender identity, something that is allegedly fluid, with unchanging characteristics like race or national origin.

HB199 is the ultimate affront to parents. Parents across the country are objecting to the porn exposure and sex acts being taught in our schools as a matter of inclusivity. The transgender ideology is already being taught in curriculum as young as 4 years old. If HB199 passes, making SOGI a protected class, it would silence any and all objections to this sexualization of kids in the classroom

HB199 in effect means that a Christian school or church can easily be sued for adhering to and teaching Biblical standards of human sexuality. 

Please hear this clearly. As Christ followers, we are commanded to love our neighbors (Mark 12:31), defined for us in the Bible as rejoicing in the truth, not in wrongdoing (1 Corinthians 13:6). And we can trust His Word as Truth when it says “He created them male and female” (Genesis 1:27).

When our laws and society ignore the real differences between men and women, it’s often women who pay the price. We need reality-based laws that honor those differences. A male’s belief about his gender doesn’t erase his physical advantages over female athletes.

SB 231 removes sex and gender as considerations in automobile policy rates, as if those differences don’t exist

Auto insurance companies set policy rates based on several factors. Sex is often included as one of the risk factors because of differences in brain development and behavior. 

Erasing biological differences may seem inconsequential, but is part of a bigger agenda.

According to SB 256, a public official who “performs official functions in a way intended to practice discrimination of race, religion, color, disability, sexual orientation, sex, age, gender identity, national origin, or ancestry ” is guilty of a class G felony. 

The clause in question no longer includes “knowingly,” meaning that they may be acting in good faith but still be seen as practicing discrimination. So the question here is, what exactly does “practicing discrimination” mean, and who determines that definition? What happens if a legislator files a bill to save women’s sports? Would that be included as performance of an official function in a way intended to practice discrimination?

With a policy like this, it is important to listen for the worldview and motivation behind.

Some dads will really appreciate this convenience.

However, the bill sponsors subscribe to the same ideology that replaces “Mother” with “birthing person” and says men can be pregnant. 

As much as we advocate for involved fathers, we know this legislation is merely another way to further affirm trans ideology that says gender is not biological, and that trans “men” can give birth.

The presence or absence of the “Y” chromosome tells the truth of the matter. End of story. The unique and complementary involvement of a father and mother in their children’s lives is a beautiful design that is unrivaled when done well. 

We all experienced firsthand the overreach of power during COVID. Next month will be two years from the initial “two weeks to stop the spread” claim. By preventing the governor from instituting mask mandates when vaccines are widely available, HB 247 is a step towards clarifying and limiting government power during pandemics.
