Massachusetts residents are once again being reminded to vote "No on 3" … and for good reason.
This November, voters in Massachusetts will be asked whether they want to repeal a 2016 law allowing a person to claim any gender, regardless of anatomy, and use the bathroom or locker room facility based on the claimed gender – even convicted sex offenders.
The question on the ballot reads, “Do you approve of a law summarized below, which was approved by the House of Representatives and the Senate on July 7, 2016?”
Because of the way the question is worded, Keep MA Safe is urging people to vote 'no.'
According to Keep MA Safe, the law puts women and children at risk of sexual predators who would take advantage of the problematic law.
On Tuesday, Keep MA Safe launched its third ad for the 'No on 3' campaign. Its video focuses on Amendment 9 of the Bathroom and Locker Room law, which "lets any man who claims to identify as a woman enter women-only spaces – including bathrooms and showers at the gym."
The 30-second spot explains that during the debate over the law, Amendment #9 would have banned convicted sex offenders from entering these spaces.
"Politicians voted the common sense Amendment #9 down," the ad's female narrator asserts.
The ad also describes the penalties for noncompliance with the law, stating that if a woman tries to speak up to protect herself, she "could face up to $50,000 in fines – or a year in jail."
The second ad for the “No on 3 campaign” features Gina, a Massachusetts mother of three who will be voting, "no" on ballot question 3 in November to protect her daughter and the safety of all women, children and vulnerable minorities in Massachusetts.
The first ad for the “No on 3” campaign shows a young woman entering a bathroom and changing room where – unbeknownst to her – a sinister looking man is waiting and watching inside a bathroom stall. There is also a third ad.
