Urge your Senators to Vote to Defund Planned Parenthood on the Reconciliation Budget Bill This Week

This week, the Senate has the opportunity to largely defund Planned Parenthood and repeal key parts of ObamaCare using a budget procedure called “reconciliation” which requires only 51 votes instead of the usual 60. Debate will begin tomorrow, with amendments and a final vote expected on Thursday.

The bill will cut a massive portion of your taxpayer dollars that fund Planned Parenthood. While the special rules on Reconciliation cannot be used to defund ALL federal funding for Planned Parenthood, it CAN be used to cut millions from their pocket book—roughly 80%.

Repealing major portions of ObamaCare would also be a huge pro-life victory. The ObamaCare provision would alleviate federal pressure on people and employers who are forced to purchase health insurance which they may find objectionable, and cut spending from the “prevention fund,” which is a government slush fund that is able to pay directly for abortion. Amendments offered during debate tomorrow and Thursday may go even further, including eliminating the premium subsidies, through which the federal government subsidizes elective abortion in healthcare.

Please urge your senators to vote FOR the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act; and ask them to support eliminating Planned Parenthood’s funding and to repeal as much of ... (more)

Daddy's Girl: How Fatherlessness Impacts Early Sexual Activity, Teen Pregnancy, and Sexual Abuse

by Rob Schwarzwalder and Natasha Tax

The pathologies and moral crises of our era do not stand in isolation. They are entwined, inextricably. The pound of flesh demanded by Shylock from Antonio in “The Merchant of Venice” could not be removed without the loss of Antonio’s blood. The veins of the victim, laced throughout his body, were impossible to segregate from the flesh itself. So it is with the intersecting layers of family life, human sexual behavior, public policy, and the well-being of our children. Certainly among these layers, fatherhood is a theme ... (more)

A Good Society Depends on Hospitality, Order, and Justice

by Rob Schwarzwalder

If you go into any grocery store, the first thing you’ll notice is order. The aisles are in precisely ordered rows. Food, flowers, and goods of all kinds are delegated to specific areas and signs and numbers point to where you can find what you want. You can also find things based on experience, observation, and signs that post what each aisle contains. There is clarity, predictability, and neatness. Order. That kind of order is based on order of a different kind—social order. Lower middle-income Americans and people in the ... (more)
