Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) blasted the Equality Act as unconstitutional. On Twitter Wednesday, Greene reiterated her opposition to the bill after opposing it on the House floor earlier in the day.

The House is set to vote on the legislation this week. Supporters of the Democrat-backed bill argued it would fortify existing bans against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender. It would also expand areas to which those protections apply.

However, Republicans like Greene said it could infringe on religious freedom and other rights.

“The Equality Act completely destroys women’s rights, girls’ rights, women’s sports, and religious freedoms,” Greene noted. “I hope that every colleague of mine will put aside their political party differences and realize that voting on the Equality Act is the wrong thing to do.”

Greene believes the Equality Act expands governmental regulatory reach. She called on lawmakers to reconsider their stance on the legislation and oppose it.
