Would the Equality Act Increase Abortions?

This is part 3 of a discussion with my wife Chelsea about the Equality Act and our deep concerns about its consequences.

We address these basic questions about the potential effects of the Equality Act:

  1. Would the ambiguous language force tax-funded abortions?
  2. Could it make women more expensive to hire?
  3. Could it chill businesses with fear, uncertainty, and doubt?
  4. How should Christians respond?
