10 Reasons to reject the ERA
The Equal Rights Amendment will eliminate all legal distinctions between the sexes.
It will give the federal government more power. Laws that favor women will be challenged and declared unconstutional. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote a report when she was an attorney for the ACLU titled Sex Bias in the U.S. Code. She estimated that at least 800 federal laws would be affected by the ERA, such as: women in the draft and front line combat (pgs 28, 202, 218); age of consent lowered and prostitution legalized as part of "privacy" (p 102); bigamy laws would be unconstitutional (p 195-196); prisons, single-sex schools, fraternities and sororities, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts would all be sex-integrated (pgs100-101, 216, 169, 145-146, 219-220).
There is virtually no limit to the number and kind of lawsuits that ERA will spawn. To use the law to eliminate the innate differences between male and female is as absurd as using the law to eliminate the rising and setting of the sun. It is impossible.
