Should politics trump biology? The ACLU seems to think so and they have a lawsuit to prove it.

Stacie Ray was born a man. It’s right there on the birth certificate. But Stacie Ray, along with Jane Doe, Ashley Breda and Basil Argento, insists the birth certificate is wrong. With the help of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), they have sued the state of Ohio for refusing to change their birth certificates to reflect their updated gender.

Susan Becker, general counsel for the Ohio branch of the ACLU rebuked the state’s decision: “A birth certificate purports to tell the world about who we are. Ohio’s birth certificate policy, however, refuses to provide transgender individuals --- and only transgender individuals --- with a birth certificate that accurately conveys their gender identity.”

Aaron Baer, who serves as president of the Citizens for Community Values, accused the ACLU of wasting taxpayer money.

It's about whether politics trumps biology.

In a statement, he said, “With this lawsuit, the ACLU is sacrificing medical accuracy for political ideology by attempting to force the state to falsify official records. A birth certificate that doesn’t accurately reflect the biological realities of an individual becomes a meaningless, if not harmful, document. Make no mistake, this lawsuit isn’t about whether Ohioans can be supportive of people with gender dysphoria --- it’s about whether politics trumps biology.”

Alongside Kansas and Tennessee, Ohio is among the few states still prohibiting identity changes on birth certificates. Earlier this month, a judge ruled a similar policy in Idaho was unconstitutional.

A violation of their rights. Specifically, the God-given right to identify as a man or a woman regardless of biology.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
