CWA Impeachment Run-Down and Prayer Guide

By | Legislative Updates, News and Events | No Comments

In case you’ve missed it, this week, the U.S. House of Representatives started public hearings in their impeachment inquiry into President Trump. If you have watched any of the impeachment proceedings, you have seen hostile partisan politics. The Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee carefully curated a list of people and conducted a closed-door selection process of witnesses. They passed a partisan impeachment resolution and have denied Republican witness requests, namely the whistleblower and Hunter Biden. The Committee televised the first public hearing on Wednesday, November 13, on the Democrat’s claim that President Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate the 2016 election by withholding aid. These impeachment proceedings are nothing like we have seen before, so we wanted to give you a who, what, when, and how to pray guide:

Unconscionably Blocked: Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

By | Blog, News and Events, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

On the heels of the most electrified month of the life debate, 80% of Americans have spoken out that they do not support infanticide.

Forty-four members of Congress blocked a bill ensuring medical care to LIVING, newborn babies who survive an abortion.

Think about that for a second.

“Picture a baby who’s already been born, who’s outside the womb gasping for air. That’s the only thing that today’s vote is actually about. We’re talking about babies who have already been born. Nothing in this bill touches abortion access.” (Senator Ben Sasse)

And they voted NO. To not provide care to crying babies after a failed abortion attempt.

This is absolutely unconscionable.

Every Democrat who made remarks on the Senate floor before the vote was claiming that this bill was an attack on a woman’s right to abortion when nothing in this bill touches abortion. We’re talking about AFTER abortion.

Whether it be their personal inhumane carelessness or their allegiance to the radical extremism of partisanship, there is no covering up such a disgusting ploy.

How long, O Lord, how long?

That was the question that replayed in my head as I watched the votes roll in on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

“Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12)

That’s what this is.

Keep fighting, dear friend. And keep praying.

An Open Letter to Governor Cuomo

By | Blog, New York, News and Events, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life, YWA | No Comments

Dear Mr. Cuomo,

Do you remember the day in the hospital room when you held your daughters, Cara and Mariah, for the first time?  And then the day you held Michaela? Those are the babies you are allowing to be killed. Fully developed, feeling, dreaming, cognitive, valuable, unique, and American. Right before they are to make their appearance, you are celebrating that they can be killed.

I am a woman, a New Yorker, and a millennial. Every single fiber of my being disapproves of what you signed on Tuesday.

I and thousands of other New Yorkers are absolutely horrified and disgusted by your blatant disregard for the value of life.

You are hurting women in the name of “reproductive health.”

You just made it legal to kill fully developed 7-, 8-, 9-, 10-pound babies.

You just made it more dangerous for the women that do end the life of their child by allowing non-doctors to perform abortions. This is a Kermit Gosnell-type of disregard for women.

You also just made it more unsafe, painful, and deadly for the babies who survive abortions.

This is most definitely NOT a victory for all New Yorkers.  It is a grave loss. A dark, discouraging, and horrifying time for New Yorkers and all Americans.

You say that you want “to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions.” Under your new law, more New York women will never be able to make a single decision. You have denied her the most fundamental right. Her right to life.

We will continue to fight for vulnerable babies in the womb, sir. I will continue to stand up and be a voice for the voiceless. We are endowed with certain unalienable rights, and it is an unthinkable evil that we do not protect the fundamental right to life in America.

This was not a win for women. It was the worst of losses.

-Kelsey Good


Note to readers:

New Yorkers, get involved.  Christians, rise up.  Churches, speak out.

Join an organization. Get news alerts from different news stations. Pick up a book.

Get off your couches and go to the state capitol. Stop scrolling on Instagram, and keep up with the legislation in your capitol and in D.C.

You have a choice to make a difference. Stand up for truth. Be part of the solution.

 

Young Women for America at TPUSA Student Action Summit

By | Blog, News and Events, YWA | No Comments

Happy New Year! I hope that you had a restful and blessed Christmas and New Years with your families and friends. The week leading up to Christmas, I traveled to West Palm Beach, Florida, where Young Women for America had an exhibitor booth at TPUSA’s Student Action Summit. The conference was filled with great speakers who came and encouraged the students to be leaders on campus, to educate themselves and engage in dialogue. The speakers included Laura Ingraham, Dr. Jordan Peterson, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Dennis Prager, Allie Stuckey, Tucker Carlson, and Donald Trump, Jr.

This event was a great opportunity to share our YWA program with a couple hundred students and give them some of our educational and promotional materials. It is always such a blessing to discuss the rich history of CWA, how Mrs. LaHaye started our organization, and how someone can get involved with us on their college campus. Faces light up and they often respond, “Wow! This is what we need! I’m so glad you’re here!” We have received a number of new contacts, girls who want to start YWA chapters, and even some adults who want to get involved with CWA.

There were two of our YWA chapter leaders at the conference, as well. Being able to connect with our girls is always the highlight of every trip for me. Please pray for God to use this conference to grow Young Women for America. Pray that God sustains their desire to start YWA at their university or high school, that He would use them to educate and impact their peers, and that they would stand up for righteousness.

Grayce McAllister, the graduating YWA President at Emporia State University in Kansas, and the incoming President, Mackenzie Haddix.

Congress Passes Sexual Harassment Bill – American People Still Need Answers

By | Blog, News and Events, Press Releases | No Comments

Washington, D.C. — Yesterday, both the House and Senate passed, by unanimous consent, legislation amending the process for handling sexual harassment claims on Capitol Hill.  The legislation now heads to the White House for President Trump’s signature. The bill does not require reimbursement of federal hush funds from the last two decades and does not disclose the identities of members of Congress who utilized this hush fund in the past.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, the largest public policy organization for women in the nation, had this to say:

“It has been over a year since the #MeToo revolution erupted, and it is high time that Congress deal with this issue on its own turf.  Our representatives have finally come to terms with changes for which 1,500 staff members and countless citizens have asked.

“Finally, in the eleventh hour and during a lame duck session, things have begun to move along.  However, there is more work to be done.

“Even with the passage of this bill, the American people are still denied full disclosure of who engages in sexual harassment in Congress.  No one is exposed for these deeds.  None of the $15 million worth of taxpayer money to settle claims in the past is returned to the Treasury.  No one is held accountable for reimbursing these hush funds.  Where is the transparency?

“Concerned Women for America continues to ask likely incoming-Speaker Pelosi to move immediately to disclose the names of every member of Congress who used the fund. This is not an issue we expect our elected officials to handle with kid gloves. The American people deserve to know. Congress works for us – not the other way around.”
