‘Women Die Every Day’: Protester Interrupts Senate Hearing For Full Minute Before Getting Dragged Out

A woman interrupted the Senate hearing on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

The protester screamed for a full minute that women would “die every day” if the ERA did not pass before she was dragged out by security. The disruption occurred during testimony brought in opposition of the ERA by Jennifer Braceras. (RELATED: Kids’ Club Asks 9-Year-Olds If They Are Trans Or ‘Non-Binary’ Without Informing Parents)

“Women die every day because the ERA has been ignored,” the woman yelled.

“Poor women have no choice, they have been locked out of this process,” she continued.

Senate Democrats are holding a hearing on the ERA in an effort to resurrect the amendment after it failed ratification in the 1970s following considerable opposition from activist Phyllis Schlafly and other conservative women. Experts warn that the ERA today, which states that “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex,” is a “Trojan horse” for a litany of left-wing policy positions, such as the elimination of women-only bathrooms, locker rooms, and athletic competitions.

“The ERA does not define the word ‘sex,'” Braceras, whose testimony was interrupted by the protester, previously told the Caller. “In 1971, it wasn’t necessary to do so. But today, activists are trying to redefine the term to include ‘gender identity’ so they can force schools to let biological males compete on women’s sports teams, require prisons to let male sex offenders self-identify into women’s facilities and mandate federal funding of puberty blockers for trans-identified teenagers.”
