#TossTarget Campaign Exposes Company’s Discriminatory Policies & Political Agenda
Funding Abortion Travel is a “Slap in the Face” to Millions

 

Washington, D.C. – Today, Concerned Women for America (CWA), the country’s largest public policy women’s organization, is launching a nationwide campaign to encourage Americans to stop shopping at Target stores, to “Toss Target” and find an alternative that better suits their values. In June, Target announced it would fund travel and expenses for their employees who want to go to another state to have an abortion.

 

Following the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that returned abortion policy to the democratic process and allow state legislatures to decide policies that best fit the people of their state, many have enacted laws curtailing abortions. According to Guttmacher research data, more than 70% of the American people support restrictions on abortion.

 

“Pro-life Americans have the power of the purse and need to stop funding companies that hate us and everything we stand for,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America. “Companies who fund travel to another state for an abortion and don’t provide the extra support for their employees who choose life are practicing discrimination and their actions are a slap in the face to the more the millions of Americans who support life.”

 

CWA is rallying its state leaders and activists, its Young Women for America chapters and other pro-life organizations and activists to join the effort at the height of the school shopping season.   Posted on its website is a list of alternatives to many of the companies that have promised to fund abortion travel for their employees. It also includes sample letters and scripts for letting the executives and managers of the company know why Americans are choosing to shop elsewhere.

 

“Target has been on the wrong side of family issues for many years and it’s time we take our business elsewhere and let their executives and managers know why,” said Nance. “Their incredibly offensive decision to weigh in on the most important moral issues in the United States of our time, literally weighing in on the side of death, is not only wrongheaded and insidious but downright financially foolish.”

Unlawful Attacks on Supreme Court Justices Multiply

By | LBB | No Comments

Even after the attempted assassination of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the campaign of harassment at the homes of conservative justices has continued by a tiny but vocal radical crowd. Protesters showed up recently at a restaurant where Justice Kavanaugh was dining.

 

To his shame, Attorney General Merrick Garland continues ignoring these clear federal law violations. Title 18 U.S. Code § 1507 authorizes a fine or even imprisonment to “Whoever … with the intent of influencing any judge … pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge …”

 

But these radicals operate at the urgency of legal, liberal intellectuals. Harvard Law School lecturer Alejandra Caraballo tweeted recently that the justices should be harassed at every turn. “It is our civic duty,” she wrote, “to accost them every time they are in public. They are pariahs. Since women don’t have their rights, these justices should never have a peaceful moment in public again.”

 

Congress, too, is participating. A radical group of Democrats introduced a bill to put “term limits” on Supreme Court Justices. The bill titled the Supreme Court Tenure Establishment and Retirement Modernization Act of 2022 is blatantly unconstitutional. Article III, Section 1 of the Constitution states plainly, “The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behaviour, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office.” But they have no regard for the Constitution or the rule of law.

 

Their unconstitutional legislation says, “Each justice shall serve in regular active service for 18 years from the date of justice’s commission, after which the justice shall be deemed to have retired from regular active service ….” And it requires the President to nominate new justices “during his first and third years after a year in which there is a Presidential election.”

 

It is a messaging bill, as radicals are so apt at producing. It is part of their strategy to harass and intimidate the justices into submission. It is going nowhere, and even if it did, it would be immediately declared unconstitutional.

 

But the point for us is to realize that the attacks on our constitutional structure and the rule of law are in full force, and we must engage them both at the spiritual and policy level. So, pray for the justices, pray against the evil schemes of harassment, and make sure your members of Congress are standing up to protect the crucial institution that is our U.S. Supreme Court.

Supporting Women, Promoting Life

By | Dobbs, News and Events | No Comments

Since the overturn of Roe v. Wade in June, Concerned Women for America (CWA) and Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) have been busy working to see how a post-Roe America will look. One need we identified is making sure that pregnant women have the resources they need to carry their pregnancies to term. We also dreamed of a way to make sure mothers know of the many resources available to them at the federal and state levels. There are thousands. We hypothetically called it Life.gov.

 

Well, with your support, and that of congressional members committed to women and babies, our dreams are coming true!

 

Today, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) and Rep. Nancy Mace (R-South Carolina) introduced the Standing with Moms Act, which would create exactly such a website called life.gov to list local resources available for expectant moms and families at all levels of government and the private sector. When CWALAC approached Rep. Mace with the idea, she had providentially already begun working on the idea of a life.gov website. The team worked closely with Sen. Rubio and Rep. Mace’s staff for introduction.

 

Read Sen. Rubio’s press release and Rep. Mace’s press release.

 

We are also working at the state level to make sure every state engages in a similar effort that can help keep all the resources up to date. There is much work to be done. But with your help, we can make this effort a reality in all 50 states.

 

With you For Life!

“It is up to us, the people of Colorado, to do our part. We must now work tirelessly to elect legislators and a governor who support the culture of life. Colorado now must stand ready to welcome women and unborn children by providing the support necessary for their wellbeing.

 

“The Dobbs decision will allow the citizens of Colorado to debate and discuss this issue with their state legislators. Decisions about abortion going forward will be made by Coloradoans, not by judges. That is something worth celebrating!”

It’s Now In Our Hands – Will You Join Us?

By | California | No Comments

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned the Roe v. Wade decision giving the law and authority to the states to decide on how to protect the rights of the unborn. It is time to celebrate a historic victory! It is time to recognize the power of prayer. Thank you to everyone who tirelessly prayed and worked on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case at the state and national levels.  This is evidence that all the work you are doing DOES bear fruit.

 

Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the lives saved by this decision.

 

Over 40 years ago, Mrs. Beverly LaHaye founded Concerned Women for America around her kitchen table with a few praying women for legislation such as Roe v. Wade because it did not represent her as a Christian, as a woman, as a wife, or as a mother. Now, Concerned Women for America is the largest public policy women’s organization in the nation, having a strong pro-life voice in the media, in the courts, on Capitol Hill, in state and local governments, in high school, on college campuses, and in culture.

This week, Concerned Women for America (CWA) of California participated in the California March for Life. Prior to the start of the march, CWA of California hosted a prayer vigil to pray for life, for safety at the March for Life, prayers to bless families in California, for the California legislature to pass life-giving bills, and praying for the Supreme Court Justices to overturn Roe. Hearts were softened and prayers were answered! We need to enter the throne room carrying our banners and noise makers and praise the LORD Hallelujah!

 

More pictures from the day here.

The battle is not over. The end of Roe did not make abortion illegal.

The Court’s decision gave law and authority back to the people in states, which means now more than ever, recognize that your voice really matters. Engage with your local and state representatives. Continue your prayer efforts and be in the know about your state government. Ultimately, at the end of the day, it’s a matter of two paired hearts, the mom and her child.
 
Join with me in prayer for hope, support, and knowledge that there are networks of churches, pregnancy health centers, and medical clinics that provide nurturing environments that give free support, from prenatal care to counseling and adoption services to diapers and other childcare supplies.
 
God does have a plan for this nation. Praise the LORD and Hallelujah for this victory for life!

God bless you for your faithfulness in prayer and action!

Roe vs. Wade is Overturned! CWA of Texas Responds

FOR MORE INFORMATION: Ann Hettinger (972) 658-4204

 

Concerned Women for America of Texas

Applauds the SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade

 

Rockwall, Texas – In America, after forty-nine years of living with the unjust United States Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, today it has been rightfully overturned. This decision by the Court reveals the incorruptibility of these Justices. They were unjustly targeted by the left, and they stood strong. We are thankful for them.

 

Texas has determined that children, still in the protection of their mother’s womb, will be safe from destruction. The 87th Legislature in 2021 passed HB 1280, authored by Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-District 98), sponsored by Sen. Angela Paxton (R-District 8), and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott. This statute bans abortion in Texas, except if the continuation of the pregnancy would endanger the life of the mother. The act takes effect in 30 days, now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Also, because there was a ban in Texas statutes in 1973 when this decision was handed down, some believe the original ban can be immediately enforced.

 

Ann Hettinger, State Director of Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Texas, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision:  

 

“CWA of Texas has worked diligently for years to do two things: First, support, with life-affirming services, women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies. Second, we have worked to educate citizens on the value of every human life and the promise it brings to the future of Texas and our nation. 

 

“We have worked to elect officials who have stood fearlessly for these precepts and have undergirded women with functional governmental help. We are sincerely grateful to all the leaders who have served our State through the years, our Governors, our Lt. Governors, our State Senators and Representatives. They have faced hostility, ridicule, and opposition in every vote, and yet they have remained faithful to their commitment to life.

 

“We will continue to support all families when they are challenged with unplanned pregnancies. We believe every child deserves protection, provisions, and most of all, love. When public policy issues arise, we will stand for life!”

Conservative Women’s Group Applauds the Overturning of Roe

 

Leola, South Dakota – We are grateful that in 2005 the South Dakota Legislature strongly supported a “trigger statute” that goes into effect now that Roe is overturned. Over 60 million unborn baby deaths later, the Court has finally recognized that there is no right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution. South Dakota now stands ready to welcome women and unborn children. Our citizens, members of the state legislature, and our state administration strongly support a culture of life that protects all. 

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of South Dakota State Director Linda Schauer, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court decision:

 

“We appreciate our past and present pro-life legislatures and governors who passed some of the strongest pro-life informed consent restrictions in the nation as well as the trigger statute. I’m reminded of Sen. Tom Hansen’s (R-District 22) remarks during the Senate debate on our trigger statute, ‘Killing an innocent human being, whether born or unborn, is wrong. That is not something we do in a civilized society.’

 

“We are not so naive as to think that no more abortions will occur. After 50 years of a culture of death, we still have hearts and minds to change. We must continue to lovingly support and encourage women in their pregnancies. We must declare respect for life from the moment of conception and understand that all life is precious. We must recognize that we are created in the image of God.”

We must work tirelessly to elect legislators and a governor who support the culture of life.

 

“The Dobbs decision will allow the citizens of New Mexico to debate and discuss this issue with their state legislators. Decisions about abortion going forward will be made by New Mexicans, not by judges. That is ultimately a very good thing.”

Frankfort, Kentucky – The Commonwealth of Kentucky’s majority pro-life legislature and a strong support network of pro-life groups have worked hard for many years to transform hearts and minds of Kentuckians regarding the value of human life in the womb.

“Thank you, to our courageous Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, for putting the lives of the unborn first, taking Kentucky’s fight all the way to the Supreme Court.

Concerned Women for America of Louisiana State Director Laura Huber, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision:

 

“In 2006, the Louisiana legislator passed the Human Life Protection Act, which ensures that the state of Louisiana has the authority to prohibit abortion following the reversal of Roe v. Wade. In addition, the Louisiana Love Life Amendment passed in 2020 protects our pro-life laws prohibiting state judges from ‘finding’ a right to abortion or funding abortion in the Louisiana Constitution.

 

“And just this week, Gov. Bel Edwards signed into law several pro-life bills. The Governor made this statement on the bill signing, ‘My position on abortion has been unwavering. I am pro-life and have never hidden that fact.’

 

“Organizations around Louisiana stand ready to support, encourage, and advocate for pregnant mothers and children. Through solid resources to assist and good legislation, Louisiana is prepared to support a culture of life that protects all.”

Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania – Now that the Supreme Court has finally overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, it is up to the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to do our part. Pennsylvania stands ready to welcome women and unborn children.

 

CWA of Pennsylvania State Director Dilonna Coran, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision:

 

“Every child deserves the right to life. Roe was wrong from the start. Today’s significant decision is welcomed after decades of pro-life activism. Individual states are now finally free to protect life. 

 

“Unfortunately, nothing will immediately change for Pennsylvanians. The fight for women and children now goes to a different level. The Pennsylvania Abortion Control Act of 1989 keeps abortion legal up to six months of pregnancy. In post-Roe, Pennsylvania could become a destination state for those seeking an abortion. According to the Guttmacher Institute, people driving to Pennsylvania seeking an abortion will increase by over 1,000 percent.

 

“It is up to the citizens of this great Commonwealth to do our part. We must work tirelessly to elect legislators and a governor who support the culture of life and who will pass life-affirming legislation.”

Pro-Life Day of Action: Wednesday, June 1

By | Pennsylvania | No Comments

“Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God, is with you.  He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished.” I Chronicles 28:20

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Pennsylvania is joining the statewide pro-life community for a Day of Action for Pennsylvania on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. We are asking everyone to contact their State Senator and urge them to vote “YES” to pass the Constitutional Life Amendment, SB956, before the state budget is passed this June.

 

CWA of Pennsylvania continues to strongly support the Pennsylvania Constitutional Life Amendment. SB956 is a joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Pennsylvania stating that there is no right to abortion or funding for an abortion. Current Pennsylvania law does not permit taxpayer funding for most abortions, and we want to keep it that way. 

 

Supporting this bill protects the life of every unborn child from conception to birth, keeps our abortion laws from being struck down, will maintain our current laws, and allow our state to enact future pro-life laws to protect the health and life of women and their pre-born children. 

 

Please email, tweet, or call your State Senator on Wednesday, June 1 and ask them to defend life and vote YES on SB956, the Life Amendment. Now is the time to act and make a difference! 

 

A simple breakdown of the amendment process for SB956 is below my signature.

 

The Life Amendment currently awaits action by the full Pennsylvania Senate before moving to the State House. It is critical this bill pass in both chambers in June to follow state law and allow time to advertise the constitutional amendment ahead of next year’s new legislative session. 

 

We cannot allow the abortion industry to force taxpayer funding of abortion and allow the Pennsylvania courts to change our abortion laws. We must pass the Life Amendment!

 

A win for the abortion industry in this lawsuit would:

  • Force taxpayer funding of abortion.
  • Jeopardize all current pro-life laws such as parental consent for minors, 24-hour waiting period before an abortion, and no regular inspection of abortion facilities.
  • Manufacture a right to abortion in our state constitution by an activist court that sides with the abortion industry demands.
  • Cause Pennsylvania to become one of the most extreme abortion states in our nation, legalizing abortion right up until birth

 

TAKE ACTION ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1! Please email, call, or tweet your State Senator through our Action Center HERE and urge them to pass the Life Amendment, SB956. Pennsylvania taxpayers should not be forced to pay for abortions!

 

Be sure to share this information with like-minded family and friends.

 

Please pray for your State Senator by name, asking for boldness, wisdom, and protection.

 

God bless you for your faithfulness in prayer and action.

From knees to feet,
Dilonna M. Coran
State Director


Life Amendment process:

The abortion industry will seek to accomplish its abortion agenda through the courts when it cannot move its agenda through legislation. There is a lawsuit before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that argues taxpayers should fund abortion and invents the right to an abortion in our Pennsylvania Constitution.

 

The Constitutional Life Amendment (SB 956) must be approved by both chambers, in identical form, in the 2022-2023 legislative session. If passed, it will go to the voters in a statewide ballot referendum in the fall of 2023. The beauty of a constitutional amendment is it takes the issue to the voters, does not need the Governor’s signature, and cannot be vetoed.

ACTION: Tell Your Senators to Reject the So-Called Women’s Health Protection Act!

 

The U.S. Senate will consider S. 4132, the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA). This extreme bill—more aptly named the “Abortion on Demand Act”—aims to codify and expand Roe v. Wade, superseding any conflicting state or federal law and creating a sweeping right to provide or obtain an abortion without limitation or safeguards up until a child’s birth. In doing so, the bill jeopardizes common sense measures like ultrasound and fetal heartbeat tests, mandatory reflection periods, and parental notice requirements

 

In a transparent attempt to disguise their extremism, Senate Democrats have simply copied and pasted failed legislation from late February, the only change being an omission of the “findings” section. The result is the same abominable policy proposal that denigrates the sanctity of life.

 

Please email, call, or tweet your senators through our Action Center HERE and urge them to oppose this radical ploy for abortion on demand. Women deserve better.

 

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) vehemently opposes this inhumane legislation. We are not alone. An overwhelming majority of Americans support limits on abortion after the first trimester at least.

 

The deceptive WHPA does nothing less than advance a culture of death by abortion in America. Sadly, as the Left processes the potential overturning of Roe, sending abortion policy decisions back to the people through their elected representatives, this tone-deaf bill has become their final, desperate rallying cry.

 

Contact your senators TODAY and demand policy that truly protects women’s health and well-being and defends our most vulnerable, the precious unborn.
