Dear Concerned Women for America of Washington Activists,
I hope your summer is going well for you. I know it’s hard to focus on public policy issues when you are on vacation or just simply trying to relax. Nonetheless, we at CWA of Washington need and appreciate your prayers and involvement as we continue to promote public policy based on our shared Biblical principles.
Ezekiel 22:30 talks about how God seeks a man who would stand in the gap by building a wall on behalf of the land so that He would not destroy it. God did not find such a man on that day. May He find many on this day. Many willing to build a wall to protect sound Biblical principles in our culture. If the wall is to be strong, we must choose to stand alongside one another and continually pray for the Body of Christ and for our nation as we work to return to sound Biblical principles. Are you willing to join with us as we pick up a shovel and trowel and do what needs to be done to raise up that wall?
The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the U. S. Supreme Court.
As CWA President and CEO Penny Nance said, “This in an historic moment for our nation, and I could not be more proud to stand alongside conservative women across the country in support of Judge Kavanaugh … Judge Kavanaugh is uniquely qualified, fair, and impartial and fulfills President Trump’s campaign promise to nominate a constitutional conservative to the Supreme Court.”
Could you take just five minutes to contact our two federal senators, Patty Murray (D-Washington) and Maria Cantwell (D-Washington) to express your opinion on this nomination? Regardless of how we think these women will vote, it is our responsibility to let them know where we stand. We cannot allow them to build momentum as they hear from one person after another who opposes Kavanaugh. This empowers them to stand strong. Let them know, and encourage others to let them know, that Kavanaugh is an excellent nominee and that he merits a yes vote. Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Washington.
Sen. Murray: (202) 224-2621 and/or email
Sen. Cantwell: (202) 224-3441 and/or email

Protect Life Rule
We recently asked you to comment to Health and Human Services (HHS) about the Protect Life Rule to remove our tax dollars from abortion providers. Thanks to you and so many others, our comments turned the tide in favor of that rule! HHS received over 200,000 comments and upon our own investigation, it appears that a solid majority of these comments favor the rule.
The comment period was the first step. Now HHS must proceed through more hoops before the Protect Life Rule is implemented. We hope that by August 2019 the rule will be applied, and the grant program will no longer be used as a slush fund for the abortion industry.
So, we know from that recent experience that our involvement and action does make a difference. Please make those two calls on behalf of Kavanaugh! And encourage others to do the same.
