Capitol Hill Brief — Campus Free Speech

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

 

 

What is happening in America’s college campuses should be troubling for all of us.  Not only is a radical liberal philosophy overwhelmingly predominant at most state universities, but now they’re trying to silence the few conservative voices that are invited to speak.

Before conservative speakers can even address students at these schools, radical groups use the threat of violence to force school administrations to cancel the event.

The assault on freedom of speech is setting a dangerous precedent that will blossom in hideous ways if we do not fight back.

Thankfully, Concerned Women for America’s Young Women for America college chapters are doing just that — shining the light of freedom and liberty in colleges and universities.

Capitol Hill Brief — Happy Mother’s Day

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

 

As we get ready to celebrate Mother’s Day this coming Sunday, I want to invite you to join Concerned Women for America in prayer for a change of heart for our country — a shift away from the sin of abortion and towards a day when every life is embraced with joy, as a gift from God with intrinsic value.

That beautiful picture requires a shift towards mothers in crisis pregnancies, so that they do not feel alone or trapped as they face the realities of their situations.

So, I pray you consider what you can do to help a mother in need this Mother’s Day.  Let us love in word and in deed.

May God bless you and your family.

Capitol Hill Brief — ObamaCare Gone

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

 

“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” they told us.

But ObamaCare took health care out of the hands of patients and doctors and put it into the hands of Washington bureaucrats.

Millions of Americans suddenly found themselves with cancelled plans and ever-increasing premiums.

Not to mention the fact that it promoted abortion in many ways.

The good news is that Congress is close to passing a new law that will repeal big parts of ObamaCare and ensure life is protected.

Gone will be the federal abortion mandate, and millions of dollars that used to go to Planned Parenthood will now be diverted to Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers that do not perform abortions but do care for women.

That is great news!

Capitol Hill Brief — Support the New Health Care Bill

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

 

There’s a new President in town, and the atmosphere in Washington is tense. Especially as it relates to the debate to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

President Trump is doing everything within his power to deliver on his big campaign promise of a full repeal of ObamaCare.

The Democrats, for their part, are doing everything they can to delay, since there is a short window of opportunity for action on this.

Negotiations are still ongoing, but here is something great about the new legislation: it protects life!

It will finally divert funds away from Planned Parenthood’s abortion promotion, towards Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers that are not in the abortion business.

That is why we must support this legislation.

Capitol Hill Brief — Planned Parenthood Unfit for Federal Dollars

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Planned Parenthood should not receive federal dollars.

First, it is the largest abortion provider in the country, performing over 300,000 abortions per year.

But aside from that, fifty-one known audits of their affiliates’ billing procedures have shown almost $8.5 million in fraudulent Medicaid overpayments.

These federal audits have detailed Planned Parenthood’s misuse of Medicaid reimbursement for pre-abortion examinations and other services performed in conjunction with abortion.

That is why the new health care legislation redirects Federal Medicaid dollars from Planned Parenthood to Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers for one year. These health centers care for the whole family and aren’t driven by abortion.

Capitol Hill Brief — New Health Care Bill Protects Life

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

Friends, the day has arrived! We are at the cusp of defunding Planned Parenthood and repealing big parts of ObamaCare, creating an environment for quality patient care for all Americans.

The health care bill going through congress right now is not perfect, but it is a dramatic improvement on the ObamaCare disaster.

And I can assure you of this: It explicitly protects life in unprecedented ways, unlike ObamaCare with its abortion mandate.

Many lives will be saved by this legislation as millions of your tax dollars are diverted away from Planned Parenthood’s abortion promotion and towards Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers.

That is why big abortion’s most powerful voices are trying to stop it.

Capitol Hill Brief — Making a Difference

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

I told you yesterday about Concerned Women for America’s unprecedented move to boycott Target after it ignored women’s safety concerns to appease transgender activists seeking to have men in women’s public bathrooms.

What we did not get a chance to highlight is the fact that the boycott has worked!  (And you thought you couldn’t make a difference …)

Target’s CEO Brian Cornell recently expressed deep regret in an illuminating Wall Street Journal piece.

The American Family Association reported Target’s stock has lost 35% of its value, and they have shut down plans for major expansions to deal with the situation.

That’s why we need to continue to stand together to protect our families.  Join Concerned Women for America today.

Capitol Hill Brief — CWA Targets Target

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

For over 30 years, Concerned Women for America did not join boycotts, opting to affect public policy changes through other avenues.  That all change in 2016 when Target decided to disregard every mother’s concern for their young daughter’s safety and publicly bragged about opening their women’s restrooms to men.

Our members where rightfully outraged and we had to join the boycott and send a clear message: Our children’s safety is not to be bargained with.

Not allowing a person to enter the bathroom of the opposite gender is not discriminatory against transgender people. It is instead a commonsense regulation to protect women and children.

Target shoppers should have a reasonable expectation of privacy in using the public restrooms.

Capitol Hill Brief — Then, There’s North Carolina

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief | No Comments

 

You’ve probably heard of the absolute frenzy over North Carolina’s bathroom safety bill.  Concerned Women for America state leaders where instrumental in passing the legislation to protect young women’s privacy.  But the NCAA, the NBA, and a host of other business entities threatened and boycotted the state to appease LGBTQ radicals.

The economic pressure forced a compromise where the state retained control of bathroom policy but would not force everyone to follow the rule that they must abide by their gender.  Big mistake.

North Carolina is learning, as the Boy Scouts have learned already, there is no compromising with the radical LGBTQ activists.

They will accept nothing less than approval and, indeed, celebration of their lifestyle.

Capitol Hill Brief — Texas Bathroom Safety Bill

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty, Sexual Exploitation | No Comments

 

If you want to protect your family’s freedom and safety, join Concerned Women for America. Our members and state leaders are making a difference daily in their states.

Our state director in Texas, for example, Dana Hodges, recently testified in favor of SB-6, a bathroom privacy bill that will protect women from the recent push to allow men in women’s private facilities.

Dana gave a powerful testimony where she spoke from personal experience.  She said, “The reason I’m so passionate about seeing this [bathroom] bill passed into law is because I myself was a victim of being videotaped by a hidden camera placed in a women’s public bathroom stall by a man.”

The bill passed out of committee 7-1.
