Trans-identified swimmer Lia Thomas of the University of Pennsylvania won the 100-meter and 200-meter freestyle races against Harvard during the weekend, days after the NCAA unveiled a new policy allowing each sport to determine its policies regarding the participation of trans-identified athletes. The NCAA and USA Swimming persist in affirming support for biological males who identify as females participating in women's athletics, with USA Swimming stating it "firmly believes in inclusivity and the opportunity for all athletes to experience the sport of swimming in a manner that is consistent with their gender identity and expression."

A new poll conducted on behalf of Students for Life of America has found that a majority of respondents support banning abortions after a heartbeat is detected. The poll also found waning support for Roe v. Wade, with 21% strongly supporting the Supreme Court ruling, down from 26%. The survey comes following the Supreme Court hearing oral arguments last month in the case surrounding the Mississippi abortion law, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which is being closely monitored by supporters and opponents, as it could signal the end of Roe v. Wade. However, Denise Harle, an attorney with the religious liberty law firm Alliance Defending Freedom, has cautioned that Roe v. Wade being overturned would not mean the end of the pro-life movement, explaining, "that means every state will have the ability to decide its own policies. And so, that’s going to be so important to make sure that states immediately put good measures in place that protect the humanity of unborn children.”

The NCAA has unveiled a new policy that will allow each sport to determine its policies regarding the participation of trans-identified athletes as outrage over the allowance of biological males who identify as females to compete in women’s athletics spreads. The new policy comes as Lia Thomas, a trans-identified biological male who competes on the University of Pennsylvania women’s swimming team, has received much pushback after breaking women’s swimming records after competing for years on the men's team. Caitlyn Jenner, the trans-identified retired Olympic track star who won a gold medal in 1976 under the name Bruce Jenner and first began identifying as a woman in 2015, is one of several decorated athletes who have weighed in on the controversy, saying, "Biological boys, I’ve said from the beginning, should not be playing in women’s sports."
