Take Action

Tell Gov. Rauner to protect your medical professionals' rights of conscience

Greetings from FRC Action!

We wanted to share an important pro-life alert with you from our friends at the Illinois Family Institute. If you have previously received this message, please simply disregard this second contact. We did, however, want to make certain that you, your friends, and your neighbors would be aware of the critical need to contact Gov. Rauner.

Leftists in our leftist-controlled state are seeking to amend the "Health Care Right of Conscience" law so as to deny the right of conscience of medical professionals who oppose feticide, artificial contraception, and certain end-of-life protocols that intentionally and prematurely end lives...

This law would, for example, compel medical professionals who oppose feticide to help women find abattoirs and doctors committed to the practice of feticide. And this law would undermine the free exercise of religion by forcing those medical professionals whose commitment to life derives from their faith-including those who work in pro-life crisis pregnancy centers...

 

Take Action: Send a message to Illinois Governor Rauner, urging him to uphold religious freedom and conscience rights for medical personnel in Illinois.  Ask him to veto SB 1564 and the tyranny it represents.

Obergefell: One Year Later


 

      One year after the Supreme court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, the LGBT movement’s activist class, who advocated for same-sex marriage is now aggressively pushing for government at all levels to implement their morality through special rights protections. This includes bans on counseling for same-sex attraction, and even gender identity protections, and will continue until there is no dissent. Beneath their policy demands is a desire for approval and forced participation in a regime endorsed one year ago by the Supreme Court itself. But approval is not obtained when others still have a legal right to conscientiously object. After Obergefell, same-sex marriage licenses are being obtained without delay—but that’s not satisfactory to the activist class of the LGBT movement, who still has the same desire to stomp out any disagreement. We are at the point where we must ask ourselves: Will we direct society to refocus on Constitutional accommodation for all religious views, or that of intolerance and suppression towards such beliefs?

New Report Wildly Inflates Global Abortion Numbers

by Arina Grossu

Arina Grossu is Director of the Center for Human Dignity at Family Research Council. This article was co-written with Thomas Jacobson, executive director of the Global Life Campaign. This article appeared in The Federalist on May 26, 2016. There’s an old saying that that if you torture the numbers long enough, they will confess to anything. Recently, the Guttmacher Institute, which has strong ties to Planned Parenthood, published yet another dubious, politically driven report that fudges the numbers on worldwide abortion incidence. ...

Family-Friendly Tax Policy: Practical Ideas for Helping Parents

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Comprehensive tax reform is a perennial challenge to policymakers in Washington, D.C. Over the years, a number of serious plans have been offered by Congress, the Executive Branch, and various think-tanks and private scholars to remedy the extraordinarily complex tax system with which individuals, families, and companies of all sizes deal. However, thus far these proposals have met with resistance for a host of reasons, whether political, philosophical, or economic. The existing tax regime is likely to be with us for some time. Families ... (more)

One Year After Obergefell Shows Dissent Not Permitted

by Travis Weber

Travis Weber is Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Daily Signal on June 17, 2016. By now, nearly one year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, it should be clear that the aggressive and unreasonable elements of the LGBT movement cannot harmonize themselves with freedom for Christians and other conscientious objectors. With few, commendable examples, the LGBT movement’s activist class, who advocated for same-sex marriage and who are ... (more)
