Tonight, we will watch the first debate between the two presidential candidates, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. The lines between the two candidates could not be any clearer—especially on life.
The Biden/Harris ticket is the most radical pro-abortion ticket in history—while President Trump and Vice President Pence have the strongest pro-life record of any presidential candidates in history.
So today, Family Policy Alliance is also launching a brand-new ad helping voters understand the difference between the candidates on how they view babies in the womb and their mothers.
Vote Like Their Lives Depend on It—Because They Do
Family Policy Alliance is releasing the ad nationally. But we’re focusing especially on reaching voters in presidential swing states who 1) are pro-life but not sure how they feel about President Trump, or 2) are pro-life but often fail to vote. Our prayer is that this powerful ad will inspire voters to #VoteForLife up and down the ticket this year.
The inspiration for the ad came from a surprising source, Michelle Obama, who is not pro-life. During the Democratic Convention, Michelle Obama passionately said to her viewers: “We have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.”
Except—she’s exactly wrong. Our lives likely don’t depend on who gets elected, but the lives of babies in the womb and their mothers truly do. The policies supported by candidates up and down the ticket will either work to save lives or destroy more of them. There is no middle option.
That’s why we have to vote like their lives depend on it.
We need your help to reach as many voters as possible with this video ad. Will you consider taking these action steps?
- Share the video on your social media channels and with friends and family. Your church can even share the video! Use #VoteForLife when you post the video.
- Consider a gift to help reach more needed voters with this video. Many states have already started early voting!
Vice President, Strategy

In Senate District 9, you are represented by a leader of decency, integrity, and commitment. You are represented by a difference maker and a public servant. Please, don’t blow it. Re-elect P.K. Martin!
In an era where most politicians try to be the loudest, the first, or the most newsworthy – whatever it takes to get attention – P.K. Martin is a throwback. He listens. He thinks and ponders. He studies and he learns. He considers the needs of his district, examines an issue, weighs it against what he knows to be right, and then acts with resolute conviction.
At a time where our nation is full of politicians, P.K. Martin is a statesman.
I’ve seen it play out repeatedly. Because P.K. represents a “swing district,” he is always on everyone’s “must talk to list” before every vote. It’s always interesting for me to watch how different elected officials handle being asked to support or oppose a given issue. Some play the game and tell folks what they want to hear. Others are weighing political calculations the whole time and are swayed by whichever forces are more powerful or wealthier.
P.K. Martin is different. P.K. asks questions, and he gathers information. And, once he makes up his mind, he doesn’t turn back – even if political consequences are threatened.
My friends, this is so rare!
I’m consistently impressed with the thoughtfulness, grace, and class P.K. Martin brings to his role as State Senator. I’m also impressed with his fortitude and toughness. The speech he gave in support of the Heartbeat Bill embodied his spirit as a legislator so well. It was loving and it was kind. It was respectful. It was driven by faith. And, he was guided by what he felt was right, not what was politically convenient.
As an Education Chairman, P.K. Martin has been a standout. In just a short time in that role, he’s increased teacher pay, fought for more individualized education for students, and advocated for more training and opportunities in the classroom. The bills he’s sponsored, heard, and supported have been in the best interests of the education stakeholders of our state – students, parents, and educators. In a position that’s long cow-towed to powerful lobbyists, P.K. has put people first.
In P.K. Martin, you have a world class legislator. He gets results, and he brings a great deal of influence. He’s someone who will make you proud in how he votes and leads, and he’s someone who – if you disagree with him – he’ll have given you an opportunity to make your case.
Radical liberals want to take this seat and undermine the character P.K. has brought to this position. Don’t let this happen – they don’t represent you or your community! With Election Day drawing closer and money pouring in to flip this seat, we must roll up our sleeves and get to work. Re-elect Senator P.K. Martin!
Supporting P.K. Martin,
President and Executive Director

Two years ago, we celebrated the triumphant victory of Brian Kemp – a win for Georgia of epic proportions. But, when the dust settled, we realized we missed out on a major opportunity – with Matt Reeves losing his bid to be your State Senator.
We cannot let this happen again.
Matt Reeves is a leader of intellect, great passion and care for his community, a servant’s heart, strong convictions, decency, and unimpeachable character. He has the vision, work ethic, and principles to be an excellent State Senator, and no one knows the needs and people of District 48 better than Matt. This year, we’re going to get the job done and elect this strong statesman to the Senate!
You’ve no doubt seen Matt at countless events over the last few years. He never makes it about himself. Unlike most candidates, it never seems like he’s there to “politic.” Matt’s there to get to know people, to hear their stories, and learn how he can better serve.
That’s the mark of someone who will be a truly outstanding representative!
As your State Senator, Matt will fight for our values and be a champion of families. He’ll work tirelessly to secure opportunities for our students and provide a robust climate for job seekers. He’ll look out for the needs of this district, keep our communities safe, and always be true to his word. He’s someone who will listen, and he’s someone you can trust.
It’s been a privilege getting to know Matt, and, as I think about the heartbreaking loss of 2018, I’m reminded that we have an uphill battle ahead. To elect this great leader, all of us need to knock on doors, tell our friends, share on social media – do whatever it takes to get the word out – and GO VOTE!
We cannot afford two more years of liberal representation for District 48. Matt’s up against a radical leftist who will not represent you or your values. Enough is enough. It’s time for a change. Let’s get the job done this time!
Proud to Support Matt Reeves,
President and Executive Director

Yesterday, President Trump made a big announcement: “I will be signing the born alive executive order to assure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve. This is our sacrosanct moral duty.”
This is huge.
Since 2003 there have been over 300 publicly documented cases of infants born alive after abortion, at least 143 of whom died after being born (not stillbirths).
While the text for the Executive Order has not yet been released, the President’s announcement is encouraging for those of us who believe in the inherent value of all human life. Following last month’s announcement from the Trump Administration encouraging the Supreme Court to uphold regulations on the abortion pill, this is yet another affirmation of the President’s stand for life.
Meanwhile, the Biden-Harris ticket has made its pro-abortion stance clear.
Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris voted against the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” in the Senate. This Act aimed to protect the same infants President Trump hopes to protect with his Executive Order. And the House, led by Speaker Pelosi, has refused to even take up a vote on protections for babies who survive botched abortions.
The lines could not be clearer.
Biden himself has also indicated his radical pro-abortion stance, going so far as to include it on his campaign website: “Biden will work to codify Roe v. Wade, and his Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate Roe v. Wade.”
What are these “radical” laws? They’re laws like the Louisiana statute that ensured women at abortion clinics receive a basic standard of care – like requiring abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges. When the Supreme Court struck down that law, Biden described laws like it as “extreme.”
Life is on the ballot. Are you ready to engage?
Here are three things you can do to make your voice heard in this critical election cycle:
- Register to vote.* You can register – and even check to make sure you’re registered – by visiting https://familypolicyalliance.com/vote.
*North Dakota does not have voter registration, so skip steps 1 and 2 if you call North Dakota home!
- Make sure your church members are registered to vote! Host a voter registration drive at your church before your state’s registration deadline! Find all the details here.
- Make a plan to vote. In many states you will be able to vote early, absentee, and/or in person, so be sure to make a plan and encourage fellow church members to do the same!
This year, it’s all hands on deck to stand for family values. Are you in?

“Vanishing Vows” was the title of a recent article in Christianity Today that underscored the decline of marriage around the world. “Family Life” articles always draw my attention because that it is where we live: we are all part of a family. For some, that has been a good experience and for others, not so good. As a pastor I came to realize early on that healthy families make for a healthy church. Staying healthy as a family is a lot of work but the bottom line is that family health is key to so many aspects of life and culture as a nation.
The subtitle to the article was, “Can the Church save what is left of marriage?” Yes, it can, but the Church must be free and unencumbered by government to do that. Many of our Founding Fathers came to America, seeking religious freedom to raise their families according to their values, free of government control. But that has changed and without realizing it we often elect lawmakers who make ungodly laws that restrict parents and even persecute Christians for abiding by biblical values. So, your vote – and who you vote for – is very important!
America still chooses leaders democratically and you can do more than you think. Make sure you and your fellow church members are registered to vote. Our country has a crisis of low voter turnout and Christian voter turnout is no exception to this. It is estimated that over 25 million Christians did not vote in the 2016 election, and an estimated 15 million Christians are not even registered to vote.
While there is no verse in the Bible which states, “thou shall vote,” God’s Word does challenge us as followers of Christ to influence our communities for our own good and, more importantly, for the good of others (Jeremiah 29:7; Galatians 6:10). We can do that in part by voting – not principally as Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, or Independents – but as Christians.
This November, we have the opportunity to elect leaders — from the White House in D.C., to the State House in Providence — who will determine our future on critical issues including protecting babies in the womb, preserving our First Amendment rights, strengthening the family, and extending care and compassion to those in need.
Here are the steps you need to take.
- Compare party platforms with an eye for Christian values. You can do this here.
- Look at the voting record of the individual candidate you are considering for your vote and see how they line up on the issues.
Lastly, and most importantly, PRAY that we can keep Wyoming a place where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive and life is cherished. This is the mission of Family Policy Alliance of Wyoming®, and the mission that you participate in through your generous gifts.
