Family Policy Alliance (FPA) congratulates Congressman Mike Johnson (R-LA) on his election as the 56th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. Speaker Johnson garnered unanimous support from the GOP Conference and was elected with 220 votes from the House.
But, most importantly, we wanted to alert you to Speaker Johnson’s heart for life and family, and where it originates. He was born to an unwed seventeen-year-old mother a year before Roe was decided. You can watch him explain this as the foundation for his pro-life position in an interview with FPA on the Capitol steps as we fought to overturn Roe v. Wade last year.
Our President and CEO, Craig DeRoche, shared this about Speaker Johnson:
“With the election of the U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson, our nation has one of the strongest Christian and social conservative advocates we could have hoped and prayed for. Speaker Johnson is a personal friend to FPA and has worked very closely with us on issues for many years. As a proven constitutional attorney, he is one of the strongest voices and hardest workers protecting the lives of the pre-born. He also stands in the gap to protect families and children from radical transgender ideology. He is a person of integrity who finds his truth in Scripture. Family Policy Alliance looks forward to continuing to work with Speaker Johnson in the days and weeks ahead.”
In short, this is a big deal for our country.
In electing a principled Christian leader to the Speaker’s chair, there is hope that families will thrive and religious freedom will be protected.
