Concerned Women for America to add its voice to ‘Protect Women – Protect Life’ rally on steps of SCOTUS, Wednesday, March 4

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

WASHINGTON — Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America (CWA), will join a broad coalition of pro-life groups and legislators on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court Wed., Mar. 4, for the “Protect Women – Protect Life” rally.

Pro-life citizens will join together in support of June Medical Services v. Russo, a Louisiana law that requires abortionists, like doctors at all Louisiana outpatient surgical centers, to maintain admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The measure was enacted to ensure that women who experience a medical emergency during an abortion have access to proper care.

Remarkably, the bill’s fiercest opponent has been the abortion industry, with abortion doctors asking for exemptions from the law’s requirements.

“Abortion providers shouldn’t be able to erase a law that protects women’s health,” says Penny Nance, CEO and president of CWA. “There is no reason women seeking abortions should be treated with lower standards of medical care than other out-patient surgery centers. That’s why I, and hundreds of thousands of women I represent, stand in support of the women of Louisiana.”

Sancha Smith, a member of CWA of Louisiana, says being pro-life necessarily extends to protecting the life of a woman who chooses to have an abortion. “We cannot say all life is important and ignore the threat posed to women by an abortion procedure. I do not understand how the pro-choice lobby can claim to stand for women’s health while working for this bill to be overturned.”

The “Protect Women – Protect Life” pre-rally event will kick off at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday with a time for women to share their stories. The rally will formally begin at 9:30 a.m. and will end at 11:30 a.m.

“Peace to Prosperity”—Trump’s Israeli-Palestinian Peace Plan: What’s in it and how should I respond?

By | International, News and Events, Support for Israel | No Comments

CWA has as its seventh core issue Support for Israel. Dr. Shea Garrison, CWA’s Vice President for International Affairs, did an analysis of President Trump’s Middle East Peace to Prosperity plan. We encourage you to read her talking points, and as you gather to pray, please consider praying over each point I-IV as the Holy Spirit leads you. Pray also that Palestinian leadership will one day come to the table in good faith with a spirit of cooperation and peace. Israel’s security and wellbeing are always at stake, and the Palestinian people deserve a commitment from their leaders to work to create peace and prosperity for all.

Do Not Let the “Scouts BSA” R.I.P

By | LBB, News and Events | No Comments

The organization formerly known as the Boys Scouts of America (now “Scouts BSA”) was bankrupt long before they filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this past week. Sadly, I have written to you alongside its leadership’s hurried and irrational plunge towards immorality, betraying the honor of their oath to keep “morally straight.”

The twelve-point Scout Law traditionally culminated with a beautiful call to, “Be reverent toward God.” But that highest of goals was long abandoned by the leadership who knowingly tolerated and even promoted the most egregious sinful and immoral behavior in its leaders.

Worse yet, as we now know, this rampant immorality culminated in the corruption and sexual abuse of thousands (yes, thousands) of children, while the leadership purposely looked the other way. Not only that, they were so corrupt, they did not really see the evil of the actions of its leaders. Sin has a way of eating up its host as it continues to eat away your sense of right and wrong.

The lesson for every Christian organization (and for every Christian, too) should be to actively kill sin. Pursue it. Be relentless. Declare war on the sin within you and never surrender, until the day you die.

The Scouts surrendered. And it ate them up.

Don’t be fooled. Even today, the Scouts BSA’s actions are not driven towards repentance and righteousness. They are not filing bankruptcy to do right by the victims. In fact, the very opposite is true. Declaring bankruptcy is part of their scheme to avoid facing juries on all its victim’s cases and keep secret the mountain of evidence that would expose them even further as dangerous to every parent in America.

They’ve actually been successful in their strategy to some extent. How much do you know about the abuse that went on inside the Boys Scouts? Ask yourself, are you not just generally aware that “bad” things happened or are happening in the Scouts? Many have just heard about their capitulation on homosexuality and transgenderism, about dropping the word “boy” from its name but are truly unaware of the extent of their corruption.

Allow me to illustrate. In one case in Alaska, an official contacted the Boy Scouts leadership about a leader, “sleeping nude with the boys and showing them pornographic books.” Two weeks later (two weeks!), he got a response:

I will need more information if you wish me to place him on our confidential file so that he cannot register in the future. I will agree that sleeping nude and showing the boys pornographic books indicated very poor judgement (sic) when dealing with cub scouts. I do not know, however, that this is a serious enough offense to refuse registration anywhere he might try to register unless there are more instances. (Emphasis mine)

If this doesn’t get your blood boiling, I don’t know what to tell you. These are the sort of actions that conspire to allow and protect the systematic, rampant, sexual abuse of children.

This bankruptcy, again, is the Scouts’ way to try to undercut more cases like the 2010 Oregon trial brought by a man who was sexually abused by his scoutmaster as a child.  That case uncovered more than 20,000 pages of internal documents about sexual abuse in the Boy Scout’s ranks. The jury awarded 19.9 million dollars to the victim—18.5 million in punitive damages.

By seeking bankruptcy, the Scouts seek to “close its doors,” not to customers but to the thousands of victims that it should rightfully face. It seeks, as it has become an expert in doing, to keep things behind closed doors, protecting the predators at the expense of victims. They should not be allowed to rest in peace.

Something Smells About Bernie’s Self-declared ‘Pro-Israel and Pro-Palestinian’ Platform

By | Blog, International, News and Events, Support for Israel | No Comments

Concerned Women for America’s Vice President of International Affairs, Dr. Shea Garrison wrote the following opinion article published in Town Hall:

Senator Bernie Sanders’ accusation of bigotry, aimed at the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, is ironic given that AIPAC is a bi-partisan group that supports a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, something that Bernie says he also supports.  Bernie also wants “an independent, democratic, economically viable” Palestinian state, the same objectives outlined in detail in President Donald Trump’s recent peace plan — yet Bernie has publicly rejected that, too.

Something smells about Bernie’s ongoing declaration that he is both “pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian.” He has digressed to the same modus operandi favored by the Palestinians — hurling racist accusations, refusing to engage — with the attitude that nothing is ever good enough.

When “Peace to Prosperity,” President Trump’s Middle East peace plan, was announced last month, the Palestinians escalated violent attacks, injuring and killing both Israelis and Palestinians. Refusing for months to even engage with the U.S., they rejected the plan before even seeing it. The Palestinian Authority in the West Bank called it a deceptive plan, expanding Israeli settlements and promoting apartheid (another form of bigotry). Hamas in the Gaza Strip said that armed and united Palestinian resistance against the “occupying power” is the only way to confront the “dangerous deal.”

It is important to realize that this “dangerous” deal that incites violence in the Palestinians, and outright rejection from Senator Sanders, requires Israel to make a significant transfer of land for a new Palestinian state that is comparable in size to the pre-1967 territory of the West Bank and Gaza — something that Sanders says he wants. It also provides substantial opportunity for economic growth with a massive investment of $50 billion supported by new infrastructure.

The economic part of this plan (which makes up at least two-thirds) is particularly significant, as it hopes to empower and create stability among the Palestinians, breaking their cycle of terrorism, poverty, and reliance on foreign aid. Again, these are goals that Sanders has said that a peace plan must have. Estimates for potential economic growth from the investment is to double the (currently stagnate) Palestinian GDP in ten years with the creation of over one million new jobs, cutting the poverty rate in half.

U.S. Senators Debate and Vote on Two Pro-life Bills

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

Tuesday was a dark day for America. The Senate failed to advance two desperately needed pro-life bills: the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Pain Capable would protect unborn children from being aborted after 20 weeks, the threshold science definitively agrees unborn children feel pain. Born Alive requires doctors to provide the same standard of care to a child born alive after an attempted abortion as any other baby born at that gestational age in any other circumstances.

Although each of these bills received the support of a majority of senators, they needed to reach the 60-vote threshold to end a filibuster and pass the Senate. Pain Capable failed to advance by a vote of 53-44 and Born Alive failed to advance by a vote of 56-41.

It is discouraging that 44 senators can’t draw the line to protect human life at 20 weeks, and even more discouraging that 41 senators voted in favor of infanticide. However, there were several pro-life champions who took to the Senate floor to dispel myths on these bills and speak the truth (see list below.) Help us spread the word on what these bills actually do and watch and share these videos on social media and with your friends and family. Together, we can speak truth and life.

During the debate, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) had a sharp exchange regarding what the Born Alive bill would actually do. Sen. Sasse vociferously defended the Born Alive bill.

CWALAC Endorses Darrell Issa for U.S. House of Representatives for the 50th District of California

Washington, D.C. — Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, has endorsed Darrell Issa for U.S. House of Representatives for the 50th District of California.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of CWALAC, said:

“The 2020 election will be a defining moment in American history at the pinnacle of intense political division. The choice before voters is clear: support the bedrock freedoms of our Constitution and conservative values that make America great or threaten our future with a bankrupt leftist agenda that undermines religious freedom, denies life, erases female dignity, and embraces government socialism that will lead to economic and social collapse.

“Conservative women will not concede the fundamental values that strengthen families and promote individual flourishing to a culturally-bankrupt agenda. That is why Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee is proud today to endorse Darrell Issa for U.S. House of Representatives for the 50th District of California.

“Darrell Issa has been a champion of conservative principles in the House, and we need him back. His pro-family values and leadership in protecting life, religious freedom, and the dignity of women stands in stark contrast to those who turn their backs on the truth.  We are in a cultural moment that requires backbone, not concession.

“Our members are honored to stand with Darrell Issa in this election, confident that he will stand up for conservative values and American families with courage and integrity.”

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) is the legislation and advocacy arm of Concerned Women for America. Concerned Women for America is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization with a rich 40-year history of helping our members across the country bring Biblical principles into all levels of public policy.

Conservative Leaders to AG Barr: Big Tech’s Opposition to Free Speech Must End

By | Blog, News and Events, Social / Cultural Issues | No Comments

CWA signed onto a letter to Attorney General Barr urging him to end the unfair treatment conservatives and conservative organizations face.

Dear Attorney General Barr,

Last week you pointed out that “No longer are technology companies the underdog upstarts.’ ‘They have become titans of U.S. industry.’” With such power you said, “valid questions have been raised as to whether Section 230′s broad immunity is still needed.”

As conservatives, we do not argue for onerous regulations or burdensome federal legislation. However, as the Media Research Center and the Free Speech Alliance (FSA) have shown, the concerns you raised are quite justified.

A Tragic Day for the Most Vulnerable in this Country

Washington, D.C.Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), made the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted today on two pro-life bills, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act:

“It is a very sad day for the unborn, and I pray God’s forgiveness over our country. Planned Parenthood and abortion extremists’ death grip have once again prevailed through the Democrat party. Today they voted to turn their backs to protect babies who feel pain or are born alive from a failed abortion. It is unconscionable that Democrats stand on the side of authoritarian regimes like China and North Korea who condone the killing of unborn children until birth and leave unwanted newborns to die. Unfortunately that is where our country’s laws stand today.

Here at CWA we believe an unwanted child is still a child. And, like us, the vast majority of Americans oppose late-term abortion and infanticide. Sadly, today’s Senate votes prove once again that Big Abortion has a stranglehold on the Democrat side of the aisle. America’s humanity suffers for it, and our prayer is that God will have mercy on us.”

Garrison: ERA Does Not Secure Equal Rights for Women

By | Blog, Feminist / Women's Issues, News and Events, Politics/National Sovereignty | No Comments

Our Vice President for International Affairs, Dr. Shea Garrison, was quoted in the National Catholic Register:

Shea Garrison, vice president of international affairs at Concerned Women for America (CWA), observed, “The idea of an ‘equal rights’ amendment sounds great for women who want equality and ‘empowerment.’ However, the ERA, as it is written, does not secure equal rights for women. Rather, it puts us at risk to lose the gains we’ve made in the past 50 years. Here’s why: It says ‘equality of rights … shall not be denied … on account of sex.’ So, it is true that restricting access to abortion could be seen as discrimination against women since abortion is only applicable to women. But it also could work the other way — a man could say any law or special policies on child care, marriage, alimony, etc., put in place to specifically protect women is discrimination against him. Private women-only spaces like sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms, or domestic violence shelters could also be seen as a form of sex discrimination or violation of this amendment.”

“The bottom line,” Garrison explained, “is that this is bad policy that will hurt women, not give us equal rights. Women are already equal citizens under the law of the United States, and we will continue to use established law such as Amendment 14, Title IX, or the Equal Opportunity Act of 1963, etc., to wipe out any inequalities that we still may face.”

Calling the ERA “a war on women,” Concerned Women for America adds that this misguided amendment — if it were ever to be revived and passed — would:

  • Wipe out all ability to use any laws using “sex” as a defining characteristic, therefore overturning workplace and family laws that protect women.
  • Overturn privacy laws that define who may use men’s and women’s bathrooms and locker rooms.
  • Attack religious-freedom laws in situations where faith-based groups recognize distinctions between the sexes, such as in women-only domestic violence shelters run by faith-based organizations.
  • Be used to write abortion rights into our U.S. Constitution with the rationale that restricting access to abortion is a form of gender discrimination (since it singles out women for a physical trait unique to them).
  • Affect Social Security, Medicare benefits, health-insurance benefits and more.

Act Now to Protect First Amendment Rights for College Students

By | Legislative Updates, News and Events, Religious Liberty | No Comments

Act Now to Protect First Amendment Rights for College Students. 

Religious freedom is under attack on college campuses. Imagine being falsely told your First Amendment Rights don’t apply at a public university. That is the reality for many college students involved in faith-based clubs on campuses across the country.

The U.S. Department of Education has proposed a new rule on the Eligibility of Faith-Based Entities to provide religious freedom protections in higher education. The rule protects faith-based clubs on public campuses from discrimination and makes other improvements to ensure First Amendment rights in education.

There is a short turn around to comment with your support and help the President protect the rights of religious groups on campus before the deadline Tuesday.

This proposed rule is the regulatory form of the Equal Campus Access Act. Like the bill, this rule ensures students in faith-based groups receive equal access to public university resources and funds as other non-religious groups.

Join us to protect the students and campus ministries in your lives.

Nance: The Equal Rights Amendment is the Dems’ Frankenstein Monster

By | Blog, Feminist / Women's Issues, News and Events, Politics/National Sovereignty | No Comments

President and CEO of Concerned Women for America, Penny Nance, wrote the following piece on the Equal Rights Amendment that has been written in such a way to erase the uniqueness of women:

“The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) is dead.

The Department of Justice announced as much in January.

Even Justice Ginsburg, the “most prominent feminist lawyer in American history,” has said the ERA has missed its opportunity and proponents need to start from square one.

Still, House Democrats will play Dr. Frankenstein on Thursday as they try to resurrect the ERA monster. They’ve scheduled a vote to remove the 40-year-old deadline on the legislation’s ratification after Virginia became the 38th state to approve the amendment in January, sending hopeful politicians into a tizzy.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) — the organization I lead — was literally founded to fight the ERA 40 years ago. Our founder believed women deserve fairness and equality under the law and was determined to oppose the ERA because it effectively writes us out of it.

The ERA proposes “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex” and that “Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”

Nance: Trump is Positively Impacting the Lives of Millions of Women

By | Feminist / Women's Issues, News and Events, Politics/National Sovereignty | No Comments

Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America, shared her thoughts with Breitbart News on how President Donald Trump’s administration is actually benefitting women, unlike the media claims:

“The president and CEO of the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization says the economic policies of President Donald Trump, along with his judiciary nominees and protections for the unborn, are benefiting millions of women voters in America.

In a statement sent to Breitbart News, Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America (CWA) responded to former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards’ comment last week that if women show up at the polls in full force in November, it could be “game over” for Trump.

Richards, who turned America’s largest abortion business into a political powerhouse that has now pushed the Democrat Party leftward to fully embrace abortion on demand, told MSNBC that “58% of caucus goers in Iowa were women … If 58% of voters next fall are women, it’s game over.”

Richards told host Lawrence O’Donnell there is an “enormous divide” because the president “disrespects women and disrespects the Speaker,” and “repeatedly lies about the situation for women in this country.”

“That’s why you see women so motivated right now to be involved in politics and voting,” she added.

But, Nance says unequivocally, “Cecile Richards is wrong,” and explains:

President Trump is positively impacting the lives of millions of women. His administration has supported policies that have raised wages, lowered unemployment, cut taxes, confirmed fair judges for our judicial system, and protected the unborn. These are issues about which women care.

The Trump Administration’s actions to support women are bold and successful, and female conservative voters have taken notice and are giving him credit.”

How the Battle for the ERA Became Every Right to Abortion

By | Feminist / Women's Issues, News and Events | No Comments

By all accounts, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) should be dead. The 1979 ratification deadline passed 40-years ago three states short of ratification. Concerned Women for America was on the front lines with opponents who stopped this constitutional amendment to prohibit sex distinctions in law that ultimately would “ERAse” women. But that has not stopped modern attempts to resurrect it.

Three states passed the ERA in recent years to argue that passage by three-fourths of states (38) has now been reached. Virginia claimed its place as the 38th state this year. The U.S. Department of Justice issued a legal opinion in January that the ERA has expired by every legal measure. This bars any action by the National Archives to certify new states because the ratification has expired.

Nevertheless, proponents in Congress are seeking to pass legislation to remove the deadline believing they have the authority to airdrop the ERA into the Constitution. Their motivation is clear: the ERA would become a new constitutional right guaranteeing abortion on demand. For abortion advocates, the ERA is now about achieving Every Right to Abortion.

State-level ERAs have been used to require taxpayer-funded abortion

  • In 1998, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the state ERA required the state to fund abortions since procedures sought by men, like prostate surgery, are funded. A lawsuit in Connecticut used similar arguments and achieved the same objective: full taxpayer-funded abortion.
  • In 2019 Planned Parenthood and Women’s Law Center filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania arguing that Pennsylvania’s ERA means abortion must be included in medical coverage for women because men aren’t denied coverage for anything.

Abortion groups are actively campaigning to pass the ERA

  • Proponents of the ERA today say ratification would enable courts to rule that any restrictions on abortion would “perpetuate gender inequality.” NARAL Pro-Choice America claims: “With its ratification, the ERA would reinforce the constitutional right to abortion…”
  • In a 2019 letter to the House Judiciary Committee, the ACLU stated: “The Equal Rights Amendment could provide an addition [sic] layer of protection against restrictions on abortion, contraception, and other forms of reproductive healthcare.”
  • The pro-ERA website, EqualRightsAmendment.org, explicitly states that ratifying the ERA into the U.S. Constitution would “provide a strong legal defense against a rollback of women’s rights (including but not limited to: Roe v. Wade…).”

Attempts to resurrect the ERA must be defeated

  • ERA proponents see a new opportunity in a modern age to resurrect the ERA. Their efforts must be stopped. Any legislation seeking to amend the Constitution with an ERA must be defeated. Any legislator on the side of protecting life must oppose the ERA.

Nance: End Hollywood’s War on Content Filtering

By | Blog, News and Events, Social / Cultural Issues | No Comments

Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America, co-wrote the following piece with Tim Winter, President of Parents Television Council which ran in the Washington Examiner Sunday February 9. The piece is about how films are becoming more explicit and profane in nature and how content filtering would help us better protect our children:

“Tonight, an estimated 30 million Americans will watch ABC’s annual telecast of the Academy Awards, sharing Hollywood’s celebration of outstanding achievement in motion picture entertainment. Not only is it Hollywood’s greatest night of the year, it will likely be the second-most-watched program on television this year, following last Sunday’s broadcast of Super Bowl LIV.

For most of Hollywood’s glorious history, Oscar-nominated films were accessible to Americans of all ages. But these days, that is becoming more of a rarity. Dark, disquieting storylines with increasing levels of violence, profanity, and sexually explicit content have become the norm.

This leaves parents with a Hobson’s choice: Either they can allow their children to watch those films despite their objections to potentially harmful and age-inappropriate content, or they can opt out of watching them altogether.

A review conducted by the filtering service VidAngel found that three of the titles nominated for Best Picture — The Irishman, Marriage Story, and Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood — together included nearly 600 instances of profanity, 30 instances of sex or nudity, and almost 50 instances of graphic or gory violence. Add in the films nominated for their outstanding acting and other production elements, and those totals spike even higher.

The Motion Picture Academy has never used “family-friendliness” as a qualification for their award nominations, nor should they. But American families also have the right to enjoy these movies as cultural touch points. That’s why, for two decades, a number of innovative companies have crafted content filtering technologies, allowing viewers to enjoy Hollywood’s iconic filmmaking free from the explicit material that many parents feel is harmful to their children.

You’d think that Hollywood would promote a product that secures their artistic freedom while simultaneously delivering greater choice for consumers. You’d think that Hollywood would herald a remedy that immediately expands the potential marketplace for their product. You’d think that Hollywood would celebrate a technology that helps their films make even more money.

But if you thought those things, you’d be wrong.”

CWALAC: Not Guilty Indeed

By | News and Events, Politics/National Sovereignty, Press Releases | No Comments

Washington, D.C.Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), had this to say after the U.S. Senate vote to acquit President Donald Trump:

“Now that the anticlimactic partisan impeachment is over, we hope Senate Democrats take a break from their relentless abuse of power to try to remove the President and instead join him in continuing the great comeback he outlined in last night’s State of the Union Address.

“That is what I hear from our CWA supporters around the country. The overwhelming sense is that the whole impeachment sham was a total waste of time and taxpayer money.

“That is why, in the middle of all this political theatrics, the President’s approval numbers are the highest he has ever had. The people can recognize an injustice when they see it, and what the Democrats did to the President with this impeachment process was completely unjust.

“The President should be praised for the way he has handled the people’s business while a whole party dedicated itself full time to frustrating his every effort on behalf of the American people. They have failed today, as they have on every attempt before.

“The President won today, and with him the American people, too.”
