It wasn’t a surprising night, but it was massive nonetheless. Last night, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump each overwhelmed their remaining opposition in Super Tuesday contests around the nation, adding hundreds of delegates in the quest for their parties’ nominations.

President Biden swept the Democratic contests in 15 states. On the Republican side, only a Nikki Haley win in Vermont kept former President Trump from a clean sweep. As a result, Ambassador Haley is suspending her campaign today.

All of this means that, apart from a dramatic development, the November election will offer a repeat of the 2020 race: Biden vs. Trump.

If you are a voter in one of the Super Tuesday states, you had the chance to make your voice heard. But wherever you are, you can make your voice heard now by participating in the Social Conservative Straw Poll.

The groundwork has been laid for the presidential race, but so much is still to happen this election year. Most states still have primary elections to determine nominees for thousands of races – from state legislatures to governorships to congressional seats.

Please continue to stand with Family Policy Alliance and our state allies as we mobilize social conservatives and illuminate voters on where the candidates really stand.

Praying and Acting,

John Paulton
Vice President, State Alliances

Parents, you would do anything for your child, right? If they were struggling, you would help them. If they were hurting, you would comfort them. You couldn’t imagine that even though you were doing everything you could to care for your child, they could still be ripped away from you.

Recently, a family in Indiana faced exactly that. This family with 6 kids had one of their children removed and placed in foster care because the parents wouldn’t refer to him as a female. Joining us on the podcast to discuss this story and the legal battle that follows is Josh Hershberger, General Counsel at Indiana Family Institute. Parents, this episode is not one you’ll want to miss.

In the recent election in Virginia, issues like parental rights and abortion took center stage, which drew the interest of many social conservatives around the country. This was one of the most shocking off-year elections we’ve seen in a long time, so we invited an expert to break down the results and offer potential insight for future elections nationwide.

Joining the SoCon Report Podcast live today is Victoria Cobb, President of The Family Foundation of Virginia, to help us break down what happened. With a remarkable seventeen years of experience fighting for pro-family values in Virginia, she is a valuable resource for dissecting this election. Ask her your questions in the comments of our livestream!

We are living in an intense time in human history.

The images out of the brutal attack on Israelis have forever been etched in the minds of all Americans who have been watching.

Many of you joined our prayer call with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, author Joel C. Rosenburg and Pastor Greg Laurie a week ago as we unpacked ways to pray for Israel and for “the peace of Jerusalem.”

Now, we must speak up and encourage our federal elected officials to continue to stand with Israel.

Please take a moment to send a quick email to your members of Congress, asking them not to give up in their defense of Israel and its right to exist.

It is astonishing today that some, like college students at liberal universities, are shouting support not for the innocent but for the terrorists who perpetrated these evil acts. This runs contrary to our basic human principles of protecting the innocent.

Ask Congress to shout louder in support of Israel and continue to fight terrorists like Hamas.

In late 2020, we launched Under God, One Nation to engage Christians in prayer regarding timely issues that were affecting our nation. That prayer initiative has continued over the years since then.

Submitted below for your prayer time (and also for sharing with your church or Sunday School) is our current list of prayer topics.

Israel

In case you missed it: last week we hosted a prayer and update call on Israel with author Joel C. Rosenberg, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and Pastor Greg Laurie. You can still watch that here!

US House of Representatives Speaker Race

Life

Transgender Issues

Government

To learn more about the things that Family Policy Alliance has been praying about over these past few years, please visit Under God, One Nation. There, you can sign up to get these prayer alerts more frequently and also join our prayer initiative by signing up to pray for our nation at a designated time of day.

 


It’s been a busy time in the US House of Representatives. Over the past couple of weeks, the Speaker of the House was voted out, and Congressional members have spent the days since negotiating and voting over who should be the next Speaker – arguably the most powerful position in Congress.

What’s going on? What’s at stake? And what happens next? Join us as our very own Director of Government Affairs, Ruth Ward, shares the inside scoop from Capitol Hill.  She’ll be joined by Family Policy Alliance President Craig DeRoche, who formerly served as Speaker of the House in Michigan and will shed light on what’s at stake with this role.

Ordinarily, when we think of loved ones or others that are having suicidal ideations, we would expect the medical community to direct them toward prevention and mental health before it’s too late. In fact, we expect the medical community to do no harm…

But, many states allow trusted medical professionals to offer assisted suicide to patients. And now, that offer is being made at a higher rate towards patients with a certain status, such as  those with disabilities.

In recognition of National Suicide Prevention Week, Family Policy Alliance’s Ruth Ward sat down with Matt Vallière, Executive Director of Patients’ Rights Action Fund and Institute for Patients’ Rights, to break down the alarming truth about assisted suicide in America. Tune in today to learn more about what Christians can do to help.

22,447 Comments Submitted!

Family Policy Alliance is sharing your concerns with the Biden Administration.

When the federal government proposes changes to its administrative rules, citizens have the chance to respond. Here at FPA, we’ve made it simple for you to submit your comments – and you’ve delivered! In five separate proposed rules, FPA provided a sample message and notified each of you that you could send in a response. Thousands of you responded! See below for the final tally of how many comments you submitted.

THANK YOU for letting the administration know your concerns with these rules. Each time you raise your voice, you make a difference.

FPA also submitted five in-depth comments of our own on these proposed rules that you can view below.

#1: CONSCIENCE RULE

In March, FPA submitted this comment to tell the administration that the Proposed Rule would open a pandora’s box for medical professionals who refuse to perform abortions. We also noted that the rule would strip strong conscience protections that the Trump administration established for medical professionals.

Comments YOU submitted: 6,277

#2: REJECTING RELIGIOUS CAMPUS ORGANIZATIONS RULE

Also in March, FPA submitted this comment to the Department of Education when they released a rule that would unfairly leave religious student organizations at risk of being compelled to speak or operate under a standard outside of their core beliefs or even being completely removed from their campus.

Comments YOU submitted: 4,182

#3: CONTRACEPTION RULE

In April, FPA submitted this comment opposed to the administration’s actions to revoke protections for organizations with non-religious moral objections to Obamacare’s Contraception Mandate. This proposed rule would also create a contraception funding scheme without protections to keep funds from being diverted to organizations like Planned Parenthood.

Comments YOU submitted: 2,726

#4: TITLE IX RULE

In May, FPA submitted this comment in support of women and girls in sports, despite the administration’s attempt to force schools to include biological males in women’s sports. Thankfully, more than 20 states have passed bills to save girls’ sports, but the administration is now trying to sidestep those protections by this proposed rule.

Comments YOU submitted: 4,276

#5: HIPAA RULE

In June, FPA submitted this comment opposed to the administration’s attempts to redefine an unborn child as less than a human and reduce protections for women and children within the healthcare system. The rule would accomplish this by altering how doctors comply with HIPAA, the current law that protects patient privacy.

Comments YOU submitted: 4,986

For those of you counting, that’s a total of 22,447 comments!

The departments that release these proposed rules have a portal open for 30 to 60 days where the American public, including people like you and organizations like FPA, can make comments on rules.

It is extremely important that presidential administrations hear from people like you on how these rules will impact your everyday lives as they deliberate on how to finalize a proposed rule. We will continue to notify you of opportunities to speak out to the Biden Administration.

Please continue to stand, fight and make your voices heard!
