URGENT: Call Your Congressman to Vote YES on the Conscience Protection Act (S. 304)

Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House, has announced that this Wednesday, July 13, the House will vote on the Conscience Protection Act (S. 304, “CPA”) to stop government discrimination against pro-lifers who object to being forced to participate in abortion. We urge you to call your representative to vote YES on this bill.

President Obama's Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has refused to uphold the federal law known as the Weldon Amendment, which bars federal funds from being used by the federal government or even states to discriminate against pro-life Americans. Two years ago, the state of California mandated that all employee health plans cover abortions, including policies provided by churches and religious organizations. Recently, HHS finally responded to complaints from California churches by refusing to enforce federal law. Pro-life healthcare workers who have been forced to participate in abortions have also filed complaints with the Office of Civil Rights at HHS, but Obama's HHS has repeatedly ignored and refused to investigate these clear violations of federal law.

Since HHS has dragged its feet and is now ignoring federal law, CPA is necessary to enable victims of government discrimination for their pro-life stance to pursue legal action against the state for violating their consciences.

Conscience is about choice. ... (more)

 The Transgender Movement and 'Gender Identity' in the Law

Virtually all people have a biological sex, identifiable at birth and immutable through life, which makes them either male or female. The transgender movement represents a denial of this physical reality.

A Mental Disorder

The belief that one is, or the desire to be, of a different “gender identity” from one’s biological sex has long been recognized as a mental disorder. Psychiatrist Sander Breiner declares, “[W]hen an adult who is normal in appearance and functioning believes there is something ugly or defective in their appearance . . . there is a psychological problem.” Another psychiatrist, Rick Fitzgibbons, calls it “a fixed false belief . . . specifically a delusion.” Psychiatrist Paul McHugh declares, “It is a disorder of the mind. Not a disorder of the body.”

Those who choose not to live with the “gender identity” that corresponds to their biological sex are known as “transgender” persons. (Note: The tiny number of persons who are “intersexed”—born with a mix of male and female genetic or biological characteristics—are in a separate category and are not considered “transgender.”)

After extensive lobbying by transgender activists, the American Psychiatric Association changed the diagnosis of “Gender Identity Disorder” to “Gender Dysphoria” in 2013. It remains on the list of disorders, though, because, “To get insurance coverage for the medical treatments, individuals need a diagnosis.”

Q&A on the Abortion Facility Regulations Decision

by Family Research Council

What does Texas’ H.B. 2 law say? This basic, commonsense law required that 1) abortion facilities be held to the same standard as ambulatory surgical centers and that 2) abortionists must have admitting privileges at a local hospital not further than thirty miles from the abortion facility. These regulations protected women from lax abortion industry safety standards by requiring that abortion centers meet necessary health and safety standards, including the presence of trained staff, corridors that could accommodate stretchers in ...

Women in Special Ops and Selective Service

by Mr. Robert F. Schwarzwalder

In the First World War, trench lines extended hundreds of miles throughout Europe. Enemy armies faced one another in fixed positions, with networks of tunnels and exit pathways clearly distinguishing the front lines from the rear areas. Those days are long past. Today's combat is fluid, without fixed battle lines. Modern warfare is a matter of stealth and firefights, not battles of tens of thousands opposing one another from static positions. That's why the term "women in combat" is misleading. Women are in combat. They serve in myriad ... (more)

The First Amendment Defense Act Should Not Protect Multiple Views of Marriage

by Family Research Council

Since the introduction of the First Amendment Defense Act (“FADA”), Family Research Council has been a strong supporter, advocating for co-sponsorship, a hearing, and markup on the bill. Even after the language was significantly narrowed in September of 2015, FRC maintained its support and encouraged other groups to advocate for action on the bill. In fact, in February FRC led a coalition letter signed by almost one hundred different organizations endorsing the September-released language and calling for a vote on that language. ... (more)
