[The Federalist] The American Civil Liberties Union of Montana threatened to go after the state’s federal funding if it passed legislation protecting women’s sports by banning biological men who identify as women from participating.
“Montana could lose up to $484 million in federal education dollars if it passes HB 112,” the leftist group warned on Twitter. “That loss of funding will harm a lot of students.”
The bill, introduced by Republican state Rep. John Fuller, protects women’s sports by barring biological men from competing in women’s leagues and was passed by the Montana House of Representatives on Sunday.
“If the ACLU, in devotion to a political agenda that would destroy the equal access to athletic opportunities wishes to punitively attack the women of Montana, they are admitting that they are no longer an organization devoted to equal rights,” Fuller told The Federalist.
The Montana ACLU capitalized on President Joe Biden’s executive order signed on his first day in office that effectively eliminated women’s sports, cutting off federal funding from institutions that bar transgender athletes from competing among the genders with whom they identify regardless of their biological sex.
