As Election Day approaches, do you have questions?  Do you need more information to become an informed voter?

CWA has prepared a 2016 Party Platform Comparison. The fourteen issues compared are: Sanctity of Life; Gender; Education; Freedom of Religion; National Sovereignty; Israel; Military; Immigration; Gun Control; Health Care; Fiscal Responsibility; Environment; Criminal Justice and Anti-Trafficking; and Election and Campaign Laws.

Access this document today on our website under 2016 Party Platform Comparison. Print out as many copies as you need using 8 ½ x 14 inch paper.  Print double sided and fold. Or respond e-mail us to request printed copies.

Here’s just one example of the differences between the Parties on the issue of LIFE:

2016 Republican National Party Platform, page 24: “We respect the states’ authority and flexibility to exclude abortion providers from federal programs such as Medicaid and other health care and family planning programs so long as they continue to perform or refer for elective abortions or sell the body parts of aborted children.

2016 Democrat National Party Platform, page 34: “We will fight Republican efforts to roll back the clock on women’s health and reproductive rights, and stand up for Planned Parenthood.”

Early voting begins September 23!  Please, first and foremost pray. Pray for our great state and country.  May all Christians earnestly seek the Lord before November 8!

Be sure to take action today!

  1. Ask your church if you can hand out copies or make available the 2016 Party Platform Comparison. (Yes, it is legal for churches to distribute. It will not affect a church’s tax status because it presents information from both parties in a nonpartisan way.) After gaining approval, print your own copies or e-mail me to receive the number of copies needed.
  2. Donate to Concerned Women for America of South Dakota. Your gift, in any amount, will put this comparison in the hands of hundreds of voters before November 8, thereby educating the electorate. Please send your tax-deductible donations to the address below, or donate online through our website now! Simply click on “DONATE TO YOUR STATE.”
