Jim Pillen on Civil Rights



I don't want my granddaughter competing against a boy

Supporting our women athletes takes more than just buying tickets and watching games, it also means protecting them in the arena and in the locker room. Simply put, I don't want my granddaughter to bear the fundamental unfairness of competing against a boy. And I certainly don't want her to suffer the indignity of showering next to a boy. And that goes both ways--our boys shouldn't be sharing showers with girls. This is commonsense stuff that the overwhelming majority of Nebraskans support.

Restrict gender-affirming care & abortion care

LB574 - Adopt the Let Them Grow Act and the Preborn Child Protection Act:

Summary by Nebraska Examiner, May 17 2023: The bill would restrict what gender-affirming care minors could receive, including puberty blockers, hormone therapies and genital or non-genital surgeries. LB 574 as amended would ban abortions at 12 weeks gestational age, from the first day of a mother's last period. The bill contains exceptions for the life of the mother, rape and incest but does not offer exceptions for fetal anomalies, including for conditions incompatible with life.

Legislative outcome: Passed Legislature 33-15-1 on May/19/23; Signed by Governor Jim Pillen on May/22/23

Critical race theory is anti-American ideology

As the parent of a high school junior, I join thousands of Nebraska parents in opposing the proposed State Board of Education "health standards," which sexualize students and supplant parental values with a radical view. I will continue to stand with Nebraska parents and families against attempts to inject anti-American ideology, like the "1619 project" and "critical race theory," into Nebraska classrooms.

I'll oppose the radical transgender agenda at every turn

Fight The Radical Transgender Agenda. There's no place for men in women's sports, women's bathrooms, and women's changing rooms. There's no excuse for subjecting minors to treatments that mutilate their bodies and harm healthy growth and development. I'll oppose the radical transgender agenda at every turn.

Milo Winslow stood at the microphone in the Lincoln City Council chambers, speaking in support of an ordinance to extend discrimination protections to include sexual orientation and gender identity. Pillen recently tweeted his opposition to the Lincoln ordinance.
