What’s At Stake, Virginia? Safety

By | SPSV-VA | No Comments

As a mom, I can’t help but be concerned about our state and our nation’s future as I watch the massive leadership failures we have witnessed in recent years.

Current radically liberal leadership has failed us and is putting our families at risk. We are not safe.

Our children are not safe in our classrooms. Instead, they are targeted for indoctrination by those pushing radical race and gender-based theories that shame them for the way they were created.

Unreasonable mask mandates and erratic public health policies have distorted their educational development and threaten their liberties going forward.

Our economic future is not safe. Radical policies are crushing our bottom line. Everything from gas prices to the cost of meat in the supermarket —not to mention other necessities like healthcare and transportation— is skyrocketing with many red flags on the horizon.

Our streets are not safe. Who can forget the summer of riots and shameful chants to “defund the police” that kept us all in fear of going to nearby places where we knew rioters would gather?

Children in the womb are certainly not safe. To our shame, Virginia has become one of the most pro-abortion states in the country. Any and all reasonable restrictions are systematically being rejected in the radical liberal’s quest for abortion on demand, without restrictions for all nine months and paid for with taxpayer dollars.

But nothing can remind us more of the failure of leadership we are facing than the recent disaster in Afghanistan. After so many of our Virginia military families made great sacrifices in service of our nation, to see the debacle that transpired in the withdrawal just breaks my heart. It did not have to be that way.

With a young son training to be an officer right now, I am concerned about the long-term impact of our leadership’s failure in the Middle East. I am concerned for his safety and ours.

This is why I will be traveling around our great state, engaging our community in a time of prayer for the upcoming election.  We will keep you informed about important election dates and will provide you with information that we pray will be helpful to you and your family and friends as you make your decisions about voting.  Watch for our emails and pass them on to others.

Vote knowledgeably,

What’s at Stake? Life in Virginia

By | SPSV-VA | No Comments

In November, the citizens of Virginia will go to the polls to elect a governor, a lieutenant governor, an attorney general, and members of the House of Delegates. The House of Delegates currently has a Democrat majority (55 seats – 45 seats).

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Virginia will be producing a series of emails to educate our members in Virginia as to what is at stake in the upcoming election.

The pro-life issue is the bedrock issue of many conservative organizations. The child’s size, development, environment, or degree of dependency does not change their fundamental being.  The unborn is human. And yet, about 863,000 unborn babies are aborted each year.

In March of 2020, on Good Friday, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (Democrat) signed a bill into law which expanded abortion coverage across the state. The bill made abortion a health care service in the state insurance exchange at any time during pregnancy – three months, six months, nine months. These plans often receive federal funding, so we as taxpayers are paying for these abortions.

This legislation was passed by the House and the Senate and sent to the Governor for his signature. The legislation repealed a ban on abortion coverage on the exchange. It also rescinded the required 24-hour waiting period, ultrasound, and counseling prior to an abortion. The law went into effect on July 1, 2020. In Virginia, babies can be aborted for any reason at any time during the pregnancy. It also allows physicians assistants and nurse practitioners to perform abortions, and it weakens building safety standards at abortion facilities.

With Virginia currently funding the abortion industry with millions of taxpayer dollars and heading into a critical election season where we will choose new state leadership, we need to come together to speak up for unborn babies who cannot speak for themselves.

Your vote is important! Think through the issues and then vote knowledgeably.

“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”  Edmund Burke (Irish Statesman of the 1700s)

Elections Have Consequences – Your Vote Impacts Generations

By | SPSV-VA | No Comments

Almost two million people live in the Commonwealth of Virginia who are under the age of 18. They are not old enough to show up at the polls in November, but their lives and futures will be directly impacted by your actions that day.

As the National Director of Young Women for America, I have the privilege of working with young women across this nation, ranging from high schoolers to young professionals. They are awake to the reality that voting is critical to preserving the values upon which America was founded.

Many of them are relying on you to show up to vote and vote knowledgeably!

“Elections allow people to promote their own beliefs, stand behind civil servants, and become an integral piece in the transfer of power. If we value change as a generation and a revival of Biblical principles in policy, voting is not simply a responsibility; it is an imperative.”– Britton Miller, YWA Ambassador at Liberty University

“WE the people wield POWER with our vote. Our vote is our voice, and we must not be silent. Voting is the people’s shield. It is our line of defense against an unconstitutional government. Voting is a civic duty that must be taken seriously. Choosing not to vote is allowing someone to make decisions for you, your community, and future generations. We simply must not allow that to happen for the sake of our posterity. “ – Tori Mabry, YWA young professional, Lynchburg and Richmond, Virginia

“Elections have consequences. We need more Christians to take a stand and engage in government elections. For too long, truth-bearers have remained on the sidelines in fear of sparking controversy, and it surely has cost us. If more of us would stand up and speak out, our nation would look a lot different than it does now. We should not look at our elections as something to be dreaded, but an opportunity to celebrate the amazing freedoms we have here in the U.S. to choose leaders who we think will best protect our religious liberties and stand for Biblical values.”– Deanna Drogan, YWA Eastern Regional Coordinator, Alexandria, Virginia

Elections have consequences that impact our children, youth, and future leaders. When you show up to the polls this November 2, remember that you are voting on behalf of a future generation.

Not So Fast: Congressional Pushback on Biden Vax Mandate

By | News and Events, Religious Liberty | No Comments

Republicans in Congress have sprung into action following President Biden’s iron-fist decree for a national vaccine mandate on employers.

President Biden ordered the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to develop emergency regulations to enforce an onerous vaccine mandate on businesses with 100 or more employees. OSHA has yet to issue a formal rule, but that is not stopping members of Congress from acting in their capacity now and preparing to trigger a congressional review process. As many Americans brace for a looming choice between their livelihoods and liberties, Republicans in the House and Senate are working to use every tool available to challenge executive overreach.

Here is a roundup of these efforts:

  1. Mike Braun (R-Indiana) has introduced a disapproval resolution under the Congressional Review Act—a key mechanism for Congress to overturn a federal agency rule that oversteps what has been authorized in law. To invalidate the vaccine mandate, the House and Senate will need to pass the resolution within 60 legislative calendar days after OSHA delivers its rule. If a joint disapproval resolution is enacted, the mandate is null and void and cannot be reissued in the future.
  1. During floor consideration of a continuing resolution (CR) to avert a government shutdown this week, Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kansas) offered an amendment to prohibit the use of federal funds for implementing or enforcing Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. The amendment failed on a 50-50 party line vote—short of the 60 needed for adoption. This put every U.S. Senator on record on the question so citizens can know where their Senators stand.
  1. On the House side, Reps. Claudia Tenney (R-New York) and Jim Banks (R-Indiana) introduced the Health Freedom for All Act to clarify that under existing law, OSHA lacks the authority to enact a rule requiring Americans to undergo vaccinations or testing. This bill would prohibit the Secretary of Labor from implementing an emergency rule and require OSHA to follow the full federal rule making process, which includes a public comment period for review and feedback.

Public health must always be balanced with individual freedom. You may view CWALAC’s full statement on the Biden vaccine mandate here. CWALAC will continue to monitor Congressional efforts to block executive overreach and protect the conscience rights of Americans.

Pennsylvanians: A curriculum transparency bill needs your voice!

By | Pennsylvania | No Comments

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6

Unfortunately, too many parents find out what is exactly being taught to their children when they sit down to help with homework or flip through a textbook.  HB1332, the Curriculum Transparency Bill, sponsored by Rep. Andrew Lewis (R -District 105), addresses this problem and empowers parents by putting them back in the driver’s seat when it comes to their children’s education.

HB1332 would require public school districts, charter schools, career and technology centers, and intermediate units to post their curriculum plans, including textbooks, online for parental review before the school year begins. This type of information will keep parents in the loop while ensuring what is being taught in our schools falls in line with the values of the parents.

HB1332 recently passed the Pennsylvania House Education Committee and will be brought to the floor soon for full consideration.  Your immediate attention and action are needed.

Take action:

  1. Contact your state representative and urge him or her to support HB 1332.  Use this link to find out who is your state representative.
  2. If you are a member of Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Pennsylvania, be sure to let them know.
  3. Please forward this on to family and friends!

Please pray:  Father, we are concerned about the future of our children. We ask that you give wisdom to our leaders as they defend the rights of parents in Pennsylvania. Give them the courage they need to boldly stand for the issues that are impacting our children. Continue to shine your light to expose every evil work of darkness that would seek to prevail.  In the wonderful name of Jesus. Amen

Webinar: Do You Know Where Our Tax Dollar Are Going?

By | Pennsylvania | No Comments

As Americans, we often do not pay much attention to the work that the United Nations or other international bodies (UNICEF, UNFPA, WHO) are doing. We trust that these organizations are caring for those in need, providing healthcare, education, and food to people worldwide, but often this is not the case. In reality, our U.S. taxpayer dollars are used to promote abortion, to harm children by promoting gender ideology, and more.

We need to be educated and get involved to keep our government accountable for its actions. That’s why Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Pennsylvania invites you to join our webinar on Thursday, October 21, to learn how you can do just that!

Neydy Casillas, Vice President of International Affairs with Concerned Women for America, will be our guest speaker for the webinar. Neydy will discuss the horrific trend of U.S. policy towards international health groups. She will also share with us the international impact of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case being heard before the Supreme Court on Wednesday, December 1. 

Here are the details:
Date: 
Thursday, October 21
Time:  7:00 p.m. EST
Registration:

  • Registration is free but required for this event.
  • Click here to register. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining this meeting.

I hope you will join us, and please feel free to share this email with like-minded friends and family!

Another opportunity to support girls’ sports in Texas

By | Texas | No Comments

On September 20, the Texas legislature began the Third Special Session, making it a total of four sessions for the 87th Legislature. Concerned Women for America of Texas has been in Austin for all four sessions working to pass legislation that aligns with CWA’s seven core issues.

This week, HB 25, a girls’ sports bill sponsored by State Rep. Valoree Swanson (R-Dist. 150), was assigned to the Select Constitutional Rights and Remedies Committee. Now it’s time to activate our prayer and action network to see that HB 25 is passed and signed into law.

A majority of Texans support protecting female athletes from physical harm and losing scholarships and endorsements.  A majority of Texas legislators support the right and opportunity of girls to compete in their own sports. Gov. Greg Abbott has put legislation to protect girls’ sports on the Special Session call three times for the 87th Legislature.  The Texas Senate has passed the girls’ sports bill four times. Now it’s time for the Texas House to pass the girls’ sports bill.

This issue affects Texans of all races, cultures, and backgrounds.  According to Texas Education Agency (TEA) statistics for the 2019-20 school year, there are approximately 862,137 females of African American, Hispanic, and other ethnicities and approximately 318,953 white females.1 Since the enactment of Title IX in 1972, national statistics show two in five girls (40%) now participate in school sports.2 So, school sports for grade 7-12 in Texas accounts for approximately 472,436 Texas girls. These statistics do not include private, parochial, or homeschool students.

The Third Session of the 87th Legislature ends on October 19, so it’s critical that you make your voice heard on this very important issue.

Please Act:

  1. Contact the office of Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan and urge him to prioritize HB 25 on the House Calendar Committee. (512) 463-1000 | Online Form
  2. Contact the members of the Select Constitutional Rights and Remedies Committee and ask them to support HB 25.
  3. Contact your state representative and ask them to protect girls’ sports and support HB 25. Find who represents you in the Texas House by clicking here.
  4. Forward this email to family and friends.

Please Pray:

  1. Pray that our young women will not be denied benefits from their God-given talents and abilities.
  2. Pray that the forces of evil will be cut off.
  3. Pray that citizens will wake up to their role in righteousness in government.

“We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone.  See that no one repays another with the evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people.”   I Thessalonians 5:14-15

Sincerely,
Ann Hettinger


I’d like to provide an example for you:  Alanna Smith is an African American high school athlete from Connecticut.  She is from a family of exceptionally gifted athletes and is on track to play professional sports unless her opportunity is stolen by an undeserving biological male. Alanna, now a high school sophomore, is a short-distance runner (100m, 200m, and 400m). She was a 3-peat 100 Meter Connecticut state champ in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Her freshman year she learned she would be racing at the Connecticut State Open against a male who identifies as a female.  No matter how many hours Alanna put into training or how hard she worked on speed, endurance, and strength, she had no chance to beat the physical strength of a biological male who previously ran in the men’s division. Alanna felt defeated before stepping onto the track.

In Connecticut alone, two biological boys have been running girls off the track since 2017. Between them, they have set seventeen individual state meet records—registering times that females have no hope of breaking. The sheer size and strength they bring to the track have resulted in more than eighty-five missed opportunities for girls to even qualify for the next level of competition.  As they have continued breaking records and beating biological girls, it is simply not fair for anyone born as a boy to compete against girls. That unfairness does not go away because of what someone believes about their gender identity. 4

We must work hard to protect the rights that women have gained since Title IX when only one in 27 girls participated in school sports.  When biological males are allowed to compete in girls-only sports, girls’ lives are permanently impacted.

America’s Leadership in a Tailspin

By | International, National Sovereignty, News and Events | No Comments

Just recently, the Biden Administration announced the U.S. strike on Afghanistan killed civilians among those seven children from the same extended family. The same day France announced the recall of their Ambassador to the U.S. This week President Biden appeared in front of the United Nations, claiming the success of the “end of war” in Afghanistan and flaunting U.S. leadership worldwide. A lie that only his Administration believes.

The General Assembly of the United Nations is its central body; this is where the heads of the 193 countries that are part of the UN gather once a year to deliberate on the current problems that the international community faces.

President Biden gave a speech with empty words. His speech was intended to show the world that the U.S. is still the world’s top leader. Unfortunately, his words fell short. He was not even capable of clearly addressing the current threats that America is facing. This lack of clarity makes America’s enemy rejoice.

Just minutes after the President’s speech, the President of Iran, Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi, took the stand and openly stated in front of the UN General Assembly that “from the Capitol to Kabul, one clear message was sent to the world: The U.S. does not have credibility inside or outside the country.” He said that the world does not care about “America First” or “America is back” after what happened in Afghanistan.

After our NATO allies were not consulted on Afghanistan, after France recalled its Ambassador from the U.S., and after the E.U. accused Biden of disloyalty, the closest American allies are skeptical of U.S. leadership.  Sadly, the criticism that the Biden Administration is getting from the world does not denote that America is the world’s leader.

Ignoring the criticism, President Biden’s speech emphasized that America is back at the table of the international forums, especially the UN to face the global challenges.

Biden’s strategy towards the international organizations has been as poor as his approach to Afghanistan. One of the first actions from his Administration was to rejoin and restore funding to the World Health Organization (WHO), $893,004,000 to be exact, despite their poor performance in handling the pandemic and the lack of response on China’s responsibility. The U.S. is the top contributor to the WHO, which gives it the possibility of negotiation, but no condition was imposed in exchange for its money.

During his speech, Biden reaffirmed his commitment to retake a seat at the United Nations Human Rights Council, failing to mention its remarkable anti-Israel bias and to address the human rights violations by countries like China[1].

Instead, he did mention that the U.S. “will stand up for their allies and friends, opposing attempts of stronger countries to dominate weaker ones through economic coercion.” This being said while the U.S. is using its money to impose abortion upon developing countries worldwide against people’s will.

Lastly, he said, “I stand here today, for the first time in 20 years, with the United States not at war. We have turned the page.” He indeed turned the page, forgetting about the current crisis that is still happening in Afghanistan, forgetting about hundreds of people who are facing death because they were left behind.

CWA has not turned the page. We are doing everything in our power to rescue those who have been left behind by joining efforts with other private organizations, especially to rescue Christian families that are facing death because of their faith in God.

The lack of clarity, the vagueness, and the ambiguity of President Biden’s speech, showed the world that America leadership is in a tailspin.

Nance: 135 House Republicans Capitulate to the Left’s Social Agenda for Our Military

By | Draft, Media, National Sovereignty, News and Events | No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 24, 2021  

Contact: Jacklyn Washington
[email protected]  

Washington, D.C. — Last night the U.S. House of Representatives voted 316-113, including 135 Republicans, to approve H.R. 4350, the FY2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), that requires young women to register with the Selective Service for a potential military draft.  Democrats blocked House floor consideration of proposals to strike the provision from the bill.  Action moves to the Senate where a similar provision reportedly was adopted by the Democrat-led committee in July.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, had this to say:

“The House has capitulated to the Democrat’s radical social agenda for our military and forced our daughters to sign up for the draft. Shame on them. There is no justification for reversing established military policy that protects young women from gambling their lives on a Biden-declared national emergency.

“Concerned Women for America rejects the destructive lie that women’s equality means being the same as men and the left’s bankrupt ideology that erases the dignity and status of women entirely.

“We will not accept the ‘go along to get along’ attitude of elected leaders willing to sacrifice common sense and tie the hands of our military with costly mandates for social experiments in our armed forces.

“We will continue to reject cheap calls for ‘equality’ at the expense of young women’s lives and critical national security priorities.

“We call on the Senate to reject this reckless crusade to draft our daughters.”

Nance: Democrats Exalt Abortion

For Immediate Release
September 22, 2021

Contact: Jacklyn Washington
[email protected]

Nance: “Democrats exalt aborting babies as the ultimate empowerment of a self-made life. God weeps.”

Washington D.C., – The U.S. House of Representatives will vote this week on a bill Democrats are calling the Women’s Health Protection Safety Act (H.R. 3755). This deceptive bill does nothing less than advance a culture of death by abortion in America. It aims to codify and expand Roe v. Wade, invalidating nearly every state restriction on protecting pregnant women and unborn children from abortion nationwide.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, expressed outrage at the Democrat’s push for abortion on demand until birth:

“With this bill, the Democrat party has rejected every restraint on abortion.  For them, aborting unborn children is nothing more than just another medical procedure.  It’s a sick perspective that reflects the moral bankruptcy of their party, and it is infecting our country.  Democrats exalt aborting babies as the ultimate empowerment of a self-made life. God weeps.

“Supporters of this tragic legislation want young women to believe having a baby is a cold calculation of convenience and capacity, not a unique life to be cared for and cherished.  They are leading our culture to certain destruction.

“Concerned Women for America’s mighty prayer warriors are on our knees against the evil of abortion. We firmly believe in the power of prayer and action. You can rest assured that we will not only remain prayerful, but we will also hold our legislators accountable for this vote.”

Today, Concerned Women for America LAC sent a letter to Congress in strong opposition to the bill. Text of the letter can be viewed HERE. A fact sheet on H.R. 3755 can be found HERE.

Praying for the Body of Christ in Afghanistan

By | International, LBB, Legal, News and Events | No Comments

I want to appeal to you, as the news cycle conveniently shifts from crisis to crisis, sparing bad actors of proper accountability, to remember our brothers and sisters trapped in Afghanistan under the terrible, evil rulership of the Taliban.

You might have heard that Glenn Beck, through his Nazarene Fund, was helping to get thousands of Christians out of the country very successfully. Until the U.S. Government got wind of it, that is. Here is what he told Tucker Carlson in a recent interview:

“The State Department has blocked us every step of the way. The State Department and the White House have been the biggest problem.  Everyone else, everyone else, has been working together, putting aside differences, and trying to get these people to safety.  The State Department and the White House have blocked us every single step of the way. In fact, an ambassador was called in Macedonia last night and told not to accept any of these people, as we were trying to get them off the tarmac here to keep the airport flowing and getting these Christians out.  We haven’t really been able to move anybody for about twelve hours. Our mission is now changing greatly. We have to send people into even greater danger to try to smuggle these Christians out, who are marked not just for death, but to be set on fire alive because they’re converted Christians.”

This is the reality for Christians in Afghanistan. And our government, as you heard, shows no sympathy to them as a group. We must pray. We cannot forget that we are one body in our Lord, Jesus Christ. When they suffer, we suffer…
