[Christian Headlines] Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Thursday his administration would protect transgender rights for Americans, including children, and work to ensure there is “zero discrimination” in the law.
The former vice president made the comments during a town hall in Philadelphia hosted by ABC News and was responding to a question from a woman who said she is the mother of two girls, ages 8 and 10
“My youngest daughter is transgender,” she said.
The Trump administration, the woman said, has banned transgender individuals from military service and weakened “non-discrimination protections.” She asked: “How will you, as president, reverse this dangerous and discriminatory agenda and ensure that the lives and rights of LGBTQ people are protected under U.S. law?”
“I will flat out just change the law,” Biden responded, saying he would “eliminate those executive orders” by the Trump administration.
“The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides, ‘I decided I want to be transgender. That’s what I think I’d like to be. It’d make my life a lot easier’ – there should be zero discrimination. … And so I promise you, there is no reason to suggest that there should be any right denied [to] your daughter.”
The woman’s daughter, Biden says, has a “right to be and do.”
