Rep. Sara Jacobs: NDAA Without Trans Rights, Equity ‘Harmful to Our National Security’

We’re already having a retention issue in our military’


JACOBS: "Not only the national security, things that we need to pass in the NDAA, but even some of these really extreme things they put in the bill are harmful to our national security. We’re already having a recruitment and retention issue in our military, and I cannot imagine any woman or family who might have a transgender child opting to join our military now. Why would you do that when you’re going to have less rights than you would as a civilian? And, you know, I’m very concerned about what that’s going to mean for our military moving forward."
