100 Years of Planned Parenthood is enough!

Tomorrow, from 12-2, we will hold our first human rights prayer rally in front of the new Planned Parenthood facility in Washington, D.C.

Planned Parenthood is an organization that targets minorities and emphasizes abortion as one of the best ways to help the poor.

Today we say “no more.” This will be the first in a series of events around the nation where we will fight against the dark spiritual forces that undergird this exploitative industry.

Would you unite with us in prayer that this would be the year when we finally stop funding Planned Parenthood with our tax dollars?

And if you’re close to D.C., I hope to meet you there!


Help defund Planned Parenthood for good. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org and take our brief survey so I can show Congress that millions of Americans value life.  If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.

NDAA Female Draft Provision Removed

By | Defense of Family, National Sovereignty, News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

CWALAC_MediaStatementWashington, D.C. – As of Tuesday evening, the final conference report for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has dropped the provision forcing women to register for the draft. Instead, there will be a study reviewing the Selective Service. Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, had this to say:

“Concerned Women for America recognized the significance and consequences of this drastic change in longstanding military policy. We immediately activated our grassroots and built a coalition to protect America’s daughters and ensure military readiness. I am grateful the NDAA conferees put America’s national security above the push for social engineering.

“In the age of political correctness, it is refreshing to see our nation’s leaders prioritize the interests of Americans, instead of caving to political pressure. Our members were instrumental in this victory. Their efforts to educate their senators and members of Congress highlighted the concerns of people across the country.

“I want to personally applaud Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) for their leadership and moral courage to stand up to political correctness for the sake of our safety.

“I also want to thank the organizations and members who partnered with us in this significant victory.”

CWALAC_MediaStatementWashington, D.C. – In response to President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to appoint Rep. Tom Price (R-Georgia) as Secretary of Health and Human Services, Concerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance had this to say:

“We are pleased to hear of the naming of Congressman Tom Price from Georgia as the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. By naming Dr. Price to this position, President-elect Trump is demonstrating his resolve to repeal and replace ObamaCare and work to provide real answers to healthcare problems in American.

“Congressman Price has also been a consistent pro-life vote in Congress and will be able to impact policies related to respecting the conscience rights of doctors and healthcare workers as well as be a voice to defund Planned Parenthood through budget reconciliation and reallocating those funds to support comprehensive women’s healthcare as he did during his time in Congress.”

Capitol Hill Brief — Do You Know Planned Parenthood?

Do you really know Planned Parenthood?  Here they are testifying before the Florida legislature:

[* Audio Clip] Florida State Rep. Jim Boyd: It’s just really hard for me to even ask you this question, because I’m almost in disbelief. If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that’s struggling for life?

[* Audio Clip] Planned Parenthood representative Alisa LaPolt Snow: Well, we believe, we believe that, you know, any decision that’s made should be left up to the fam-, to the woman, her family, and the physician.

Did you catch the exchange?  If a baby is born alive (meaning he or she is outside the womb) after a botched abortion, Planned Parenthood believes it is up to the mother, the abortionist, and the family, whether they let him or her die on the table or not.  That’s Planned Parenthood.

*Full exchange available at the 39-minute mark of this video.

Capitol Hill Brief — No Federal Funding of Planned Parenthood

Imagine someone wants to make a donation to your charity.

[Clip 1*] Hi, uh, I’m interested in making a donation today.

And you quickly discover they want to donate in order to hurt minorities.

[Clip 2*] When I underwrite abortion, does that apply to minorities, too?

Would you take the money?  Of course not!  But you are not Planned Parenthood:

[Clip 3*] If you specifically wanted to underwrite an abortion for a minority person, you can target that way.

That’s an actual Planned Parenthood worker speaking.

[Clip 4*] There’s definitely way too many black people in Ohio, so I’m just trying to do my part. Lots of special need abortions, too.

Planned Parenthood’s answer?

[Clip 5*] Well, for whatever reason, we’ll accept the money.

Remember that.  Planned Parenthood doesn’t even flinch in taking a donation targeting minorities.

Capitol Hill Brief — Give Thanks for an Awesome God

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, News and Events | No Comments

Did you know we are the only country in the world that celebrates Thanksgiving?  Though celebrated since the pilgrims, Thanksgiving wasn’t made an official holiday until 1863, when Abraham Lincoln instituted it as a way to heal the wounds of the nation after civil war.  Many believed these wounds could never be healed, but Lincoln believed in a God beyond human comprehension.

We believe in that God still today.  So for all the division and strife we saw during this election season, let us remember Thanksgiving as it was intended, to spread peace in our divided land — to give thanks to our Lord, not only for what He has done, but also for what He is yet to do.


This holiday season, we’ll come together to celebrate with family and friends. It’s the perfect time to give thanks and to pray for our nation and each other.  Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org for a special Thanksgiving prayer guide today. 

Capitol Hill Brief — Thank God for America

I love Thanksgiving! It makes me so happy to reflect on what I have instead of what I don’t — God’s goodness instead of the world’s sin. I am so thankful for my faith, my family, the members of Concerned Women for America, the many conservative women who came before us, and the amazing country we live in.

In other nations, governments mandate how many children women are allowed to have have or the faith they must abide by. But America is a great nation for women — a nation where I am free to have both a ministry and a family. A place where I’m free to act according to my faith and my conscience. So this Thanksgiving, let us thank God for America!


This holiday season, we’ll come together to celebrate with family and friends. It’s the perfect time to give thanks and to pray for our nation and each other. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org for a special Thanksgiving prayer guide today.

Did you know that the same week Congress approved the First Amendment they requested President Washington to declare the First National Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer to Almighty God?

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor. … Now, therefore, I do recommend [this day] to be devoted … to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be …

That’s the belief America was founded on. And we should be so grateful.


This holiday season, we’ll come together to celebrate with family and friends. It’s the perfect time to give thanks and to pray for our nation and each other. Visit www.CapitolHillBrief.org for a special Thanksgiving prayer guide today. To listen to today’s broadcast, click here.

The Deafening Silence of the Mainstream Media

By | Blog, News and Events, Religious Liberty | No Comments

The press is of vital importance to Western civilization. It is a powerful tool because of its ability to bring attention to any situation.  Thomas Jefferson said, “The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure.” Read More

President-elect Trump on the Right Track with Sen. Sessions for Attorney General

By | National Sovereignty, News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

CWALAC_MediaStatementWashington, D.C. – Penny Nance, CEO & President of Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, made the following comments on the news that President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions (R) to serve as the 84th U.S. Attorney General:

Sen. Sessions has been a champion for the conservative principles that are the foundation of liberty and freedom.  Both his academic preparation and his stellar career as a U.S. Attorney and as a senator testify of an honest, competent man with a heart towards serving his fellow countrymen, even through much personal sacrifice.

We commend President-elect Trump for his selection of such a strong candidate.  The choice speaks very highly of his commitment to conservative principles.

The hundreds of thousands of members of Concerned Women for America (CWA) around the country will urge senators to move quickly in the new year to confirm Sen. Sessions as the next attorney general, so that we may start rectifying many of the asphyxiating policies pursued by Attorney General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.

The attacks on religious freedom and freedom of conscience in general, for example, must be at the top of the list.
