#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.”

Nance Responds to Kansas Anti-Abortion Amendment Defeat

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

Penny Nance, Concerned Women for America’s CEO and President, had this to say concerning the defeat of the Kansas Value Them Both amendment:

 

“The disappointing results on the Kansas pro-life amendment will serve as a great motivator for the pro-life movement going forward. It reveals what we already knew: we have much work to do to promote a culture of love and life in every state. 

“The good news is that we are free to do that work with the Supreme Court out of the way unconstitutionally mandating what every state must do. We embrace the opportunity to do the hard work necessary to change hearts and minds— however long it takes. But, we must do better to counter the lies of abortion extremists and to be strategic in our education and outreach. 

“This is the democratic process at work. The battle to protect human life at all stages continues. We are confident in our position to achieve ultimate victory.”

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!

Supreme Court Overturns Roe vs. Wade
Missouri First State to End Abortion

 

Jefferson City, MO – In a 6-3 decision last Friday, June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, sending the battle to protect life back to the states. On that same day, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (Republican) issued an opinion to the Missouri Revisor of Statutes that “triggers” parts of Missouri’s House Bill 126, effectively ending abortion in the State of Missouri. Missouri is the first state in the country to do so.

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri State Director Bev Ehlen, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, had this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision and the actions of Attorney General Schmitt:

 

“It was a great day for our country. Every child deserves the right to life. Roe was wrong from the start. The Court’s significant decision is welcomed after decades of pro-life activism. Individual states are now finally free to protect life. 

“Our gratitude goes to our great God and those thousands of pro-lifers who have stood for the sanctity of human life in so many ways over these past 49 years.”

Roe vs. Wade is Overturned! CWA of Texas Responds

By | Texas | No Comments

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.”

CWA of New Mexico State Director Nickie McCarty, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision:

 

“Last year, Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed into law a bill that actively codifies abortion up to birth in New Mexico, forces medical professionals to commit or assist in abortions, and forces New Mexico taxpayers to continue funding abortions on healthy babies and women throughout pregnancy. Now that the Supreme Court has finally overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, it is up to us, the people of New Mexico, to do our part. 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.

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.”
