Jay Ashcroft on Civil Rights



Banning biological males from women's sports is a priority

While the legislature did pass a ban on biological males competing in women's sports, they allowed it to expire in four years. As the father of a young daughter, I testified before the legislature for a permanent ban because I think every female deserves to have their rights and opportunities protected. As Governor this will be a priority.

Against anti-bias law, we're all discriminated against

The secretary of state said he doesn't support the Missouri Nondiscrimination Act, or MONA, which would outlaw discrimination in employment, housing, financial services and public accommodations because of a person's sexual orientation or gender identity. "We ought to be nice to everybody," Ashcroft said. "We're all discriminated against all the time.

Opposes Respect for Marriage Act

Ashcroft said he is "flabbergasted" Sen. Roy Blunt supports a bill adding federal legal protections to same-sex marriages. Ashcroft sent Blunt a letter asking him to reverse his stance and work to block the Respect for Marriage Act from becoming law. Ashcroft noted that Missouri's Constitution defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman and Blunt should honor the 70% of Missourians who voted to add that language to the constitution in 2004.
