Dear Friends,

God has never made a throw-away person. Not once. Everyone counts – or eventually no one will.

By now, you’ve probably seen or heard former President Trump’s statements about protecting life in a post-Roe America, and that he believes it is up to the “will of the people” at the state level only.

While we at Family Policy Alliance applaud the attention he has given to our state governments – the true “laboratories of democracy” as our Founding Fathers envisioned – we know state-level solutions can’t settle an issue of this magnitude.

Just as with the issue of slavery, a state-by-state patchwork of policy on protecting life – or enabling the medical murder of our most vulnerable citizens – won’t work. The “will of the people” will demand we are either a prolife nation or one where people are thrown away.

The beauty of our system of government is that there are multiple sets of checks and balances. Yes, the state governments are responsible for protecting the lives and civil rights of their own citizens. But the federal government is ultimately responsible for safeguarding the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” for all citizens in this country.

Our founding documents, our Constitution and our remaining pro-life federal statutes and regulations all need to be enforced and strengthened by the next president, not disregarded.

When we go to the polls this November, we will be voting for state and local offices. But we will also be voting for our federal representatives and senators, and for president. Those votes also express the “will of the people” and those individuals bear just as much responsibility for protecting life as every member of every state legislature and every governor.

As a pro-life organization, our allegiance is to the Giver of Life and to the principle that all people are created in His image and deserve protection, starting in the womb. Our loyalty is NOT to politicians or parties.

In fact, as a ministry whose sister organization, Family Policy Alliance Foundation, trains state legislators how to govern well in office, I can tell you that they know they are responsible to protect life in their own states. But their work can’t – by definition – spread beyond their own borders.

They need prolife partners at the federal level to help them protect life from “sea to shining sea.” They need Congressmen and women, Senators and a President who will stand up and fight for life in Washington, D.C.

As Americans, we are each responsible before God to steward our votes to the best of our ability, and to do so in a way that aligns with our faith. In the months and weeks to come, Family Policy Alliance and our state-based Family Policy Council allies will be keeping you updated about this critical issue and how you can vote your values.

After all, FPA was created for a moment just like this: As a Christian organization that educates, motivates and engages social conservative voters in America, we are the largest state-based multi-issue social-conservative infrastructure in America. Together with our Family Policy Councils, we engage with more than 50,000 churches and millions of socially conservative advocates each week.

I hope you will join me in prayer for our nation, for the men and women who are seeking our votes this November, and for life to be cherished in policy and practice in our country.

For life,

Craig DeRoche
President & CEO

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, the most consequential abortion case since the overturn of Roe v. Wade was argued before the Supreme Court. The case is called Food and Drug Administration (FDA) v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine (AHM). FPA joined many other pro-life organizations in a rally outside the Court to demand that the FDA protect American mothers.

Over the past 20 years, the FDA has progressively deregulated the abortion drug regimen. These are high-risk drugs, as the FDA itself admits: their own warning label on the drugs says that one in 25 women who take them will end up in the emergency room. The FDA removed safeguards such as required in-person examinations before the drug can be prescribed and after it is taken to ensure a woman’s safety.

As one of the speakers at the rally, I spoke about how the plaintiffs in this case are simply asking the FDA to follow their own science and reinstate these common-sense safeguards to protect American mothers from dangerous drugs. By deregulating the abortion drug regimen, the FDA has endangered American mothers, who deserve better from their government.

Thank you for partnering with us in our efforts to protect pregnant mothers and unborn life through our #AfterRoe campaign! We also encourage you to visit our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram to see the live videos we filmed with some of our state allies from the Court yesterday.

Finally, please join us in praying for the Justices on the Supreme Court: that they would follow the Constitution and ensure the administrative state protects mothers everywhere. The overturning of Roe was a historic victory for the pro-life movement, but there is still so much to do to create a culture of life in America. Thank you for continuing your partnership with us to see that vision become a reality!

For mothers everywhere,Joseph Kohm

One week from today, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a pivotal abortion case, the first to come before the high court since it struck down Roe v. Wade nearly two years ago.

On March 26th, the Court will take up the issue of abortion pills and the risk they pose to women. Available since 2000, the Food and Drug Administration and, more recently, the Biden Administration, have loosened access to abortion pills over the years.

Originally, abortion pills could only be administered by a doctor during an in-person visit to determine the gestational age of the baby and the health of the mother. In order to safeguard a woman’s health through the medical abortion, the regimen required a second visit 3 days later and a final examination 14 days after that.

In 2016, the FDA eliminated the requirement that doctors provide follow-up visits on the 3rd and 14th days. They also eliminated the requirement that only doctors could prescribe abortion pills.

In 2021, the FDA used COVID to justify radical change these rules again. Shockingly, they removed all in-person examination requirements, permitting abortion pills to be mailed to patients regardless of what state they lived in and what their state laws said about the legality of abortion.

All of these changes put women’s health at greater risk and also further empowered sex abusers and sex traffickers by allowing them to cover up the consequences of their crimes – consequences that are compounded for their victims through medical abortions they experience alone and often with great trauma.

The Court will examine these concerns next week in a lawsuit challenging the FDA rules, brought by a number of pro-life doctors and our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom.

We are asking you to join us in prayer over the coming week and on the 26th in particular.

We will be praying that:

Thank you for joining us in these prayers.

As many of you may already know, last week was the annual March for Life, where marchers unashamedly stand up for their pro-life values as they march on the streets in Washington, DC. While it was cold and snowy, the pro-life movement showed up in force to take a stand for life.

Many of us strong pro-life supporters may receive push-back on our beliefs about life. Pro-abortion forces love to spread misinformation about this issue, but in today’s podcast, Joseph Kohm and Autumn Leva will take on three common myths about abortion and the pro-life movement. Tune in today to learn more!

Despite federal law prohibiting the use of taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions, federal funds don’t just flow to pro-abortion organizations and providers like Planned Parenthood, they surge toward them. A new report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that Planned Parenthood alone received $1.8 billion from the federal government between 2019 and 2021–three years during which they performed 1.11 million abortions.

On the other hand, pregnancy resource centers (PRCs), which promote life and help moms and their babies before and after birth, have seen their funding come under attack.

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Biden administration has proposed a new rule to divert federal resources away from PRCs – meaning that some funds will be taken from organizations that are in the business of saving lives, and given instead to organizations that are in the business of taking lives. It’s as if the White House is saying, “Abortion without restriction, for any reason, at any time, without end.”

PRCs deliver care to millions of families each year in communities all across the nation. Through pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, parenting classes, and more, PRCs support women through pregnancy and beyond. Whereas Planned Parenthood has gained a reputation for easy access to abortion and experimental hormone drugs, PRCs have built a reputation of compassionate, pro-life care.

Thankfully, several states recognize the important work PRCs do to support life and are stepping up to fund PRCs following the overturn of Roe v. Wade. Roughly $250 million has been committed to PRCs across 16 different states. Lawmakers in these states recognize that now, more than ever before, women need support both during and after pregnancy.

But more support is needed.

The Bible tells us in Matthew 6:21 that “…where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” We don’t need to ask where the Left’s heart is, we need only follow the billions of dollars heading to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. Can the same be said about those who cherish life and the support PRCs need every day?

The fight for life is happening now.

The Biden campaign is pledging to restore Roe and so-called “abortion rights” if President his for reelection is successful, and PRCs are at the very front lines of the fight, offering life-saving alternatives to abortion. We have the opportunity to be in their corner and support life with our own time, talents, and resources. Contact a local PRC in your community today to find out what you can do to help.

And if you’re ready to go even deeper in the fight for life, join us over at AfterRoe: Going Deeper to learn more about how you can support the pro-life movement. We have developed resources with you in mind and are eager to partner with you to advance life across the United States.

Just this month, Pennsylvania’s Democrat Governor Josh Shapiro announced he is terminating the Commonwealth’s 30-year contract with a network of pregnancy resource centers, mother’s homes, adoption agencies, and charities. For women, this means less ready access to the support they need – and for the organizations impacted, it means less funding to provide support to those same moms in need. This is tragic for the women of Pennsylvania. (If you are in Pennsylvania, you can still send a message to your legislators by clicking HERE.)

But let’s be honest, this is straight out of the Biden administration’s playbook. They have consistently made it their mission to punish pregnancy resource centers and those states that support a pregnant woman’s choice to carry her child.

This year, Biden’s Health and Human Services (HHS) announced it would suspend Oklahoma and Tennessee’s Title X funding—totaling approximately $12 million—because of the states’ pro-life laws.

Title X funds grants for organizations that serve low income families by providing services such as pregnancy counseling. Congress has annually stated that these funds cannot underwrite abortions. Yet, Biden’s HHS continues to subvert federal and state laws with the end goal of funding abortions. This move is nothing short of a willful attempt to bully pro-life states and shift these funds over to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry.

Thankfully, members of the federal Oklahoma delegation (including Senator James Lankford) sent a letter to HHS in June to shed light on the travesty of cutting this funding. Congressional members in the House and Senate have also just introduced legislation that would end the discrimination of pro-life pregnancy resource centers seeking Title X funding.

Pregnancy resource centers are an irreplaceable part of our communities – each year they provide tens of thousands with millions of dollars’ worth of diapers, clothes, formula, parenting classes, and more. Approximately 60% of the women who come to pregnancy centers initially considering abortion choose to bring their baby to term. Also, 84% of women that have been previously pressured to abort choose to bring their baby to term.

This loss in millions in funding for pregnancy resource centers will result in more abortions and less support for women, babies, and families. Please continue to pray that these women choose life and that states stand strong against the administration’s attempts to exclude pregnancy resource centers from receiving federal funds.

For Life,

Ruth Ward
Director, Government Affairs

Dear Friends,

Along with our allies at Pennsylvania Family, we have an urgent request for your help.

Shortly after signing his first ever budget, Governor Shapiro announced he would be terminating the Commonwealth’s 30-year contract with a network of pregnancy resource centers, mother’s homes, adoption agencies, and charities. We need your help to prevent this!

Pregnancy resource centers are an irreplaceable part of our communities – each year they provide tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians with millions of dollars’ worth of diapers, clothes, formula, parenting classes, and more. Approximately 60% of the women who come to pregnancy centers like Real Alternatives initially considering abortion choose to bring their baby to term. Also, 84% of women that have been previously pressured to abort choose to bring their baby to term.

This loss in millions in funding will result in more abortions and less support for women, babies, and families. Continued attacks on pregnancy resource centers hurt vulnerable women and line the pockets of the abortion industry.

While the Shapiro administration has already signed the basic state budget, the necessary fiscal codes, which direct budget appropriations, are still being negotiated. Your legislators need to know now, more than ever, how important pregnancy resource centers are.

Along with our friends at Pennsylvania Family, we urge you to tell your State Representatives and State Senator to do everything in their power to ensure pregnancy resource center are funded so they can continue their lifesaving work. The support they provide is absolutely critical to mothers and babies in our After Roe world—please join us in working to ensure life is protected and vulnerable mothers and provided for in Pennsylvania!

Bria Roddewig was already a mother of four when she discovered she was pregnant with her fifth child. She had not planned for this pregnancy, and she felt alone and scared. She needed help through this difficult time.

That’s when she found Options Clinic, her local pregnancy resource center that offers free or low-cost support to women and men facing unplanned pregnancies. Options Clinic gave Bria a holistic understanding of her situation, and more importantly, hope. They showed her that she was not alone, and that her child was a precious gift.

Options Clinic is one of the 3,000 pregnancy resource centers in the US that provide compassionate care and practical assistance to mothers facing unplanned or difficult pregnancies. They are part of a larger pro-life movement that seeks to protect the dignity and rights of every human being, from conception to natural death.

While Bria welcomed her fifth child into the world with the support she needed, pro-life policies in her home state of Montana were changing. The Montana Family Foundation has been working tirelessly to protect life in Montana since the overturn of Roe v. Wade. In today’s live video, Bria Roddewig and Derek Oestreicher of Montana Family Foundation share how pregnancy resource centers and pro-life policy work together to save lives and protect families.

This Saturday, June 24th, marks the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision that overturned the infamous Roe v. Wade decision from 1973. Roe was the case where the Court invented a constitutional “right” to abortion—resulting in handcuffing states that desired to protect the lives of their youngest citizens.

Since then, around half of the states moved to enact strong pro-life protections, while the other half enacted increasingly radical laws promoting abortion-on-demand even up through birth. We are indeed a nation divided on this issue.

But we, and social conservatives nationwide, are not divided—that’s the encouraging news today! To celebrate the anniversary of Dobbs, we released to the media some preliminary results from our Social Conservative Straw Poll revealing that social conservatives stand together proudly pro-life.

Check out our BREAKING NEWS press release revealing those early results below, and join us in celebrating one year of our nation being free from the tyranny of Roe v. Wade!

Some experts estimate that nearly 100,000 children are alive in America today because of the end of Roe. Praise God for that and for these precious lives!

We are proud to be part of the nearly 40% in America who identify as social conservative, and proud to stand with the 92% of those who are fighting for the lives of babies in the womb and their mothers.

If you have not yet taken the Social Conservative Straw Poll to add your voice, please do so today! Time is running out.

For Life,

Autumn Leva
Sr. Vice President, Strategy

P.S. In the Straw Poll, we also want to hear who you’re leaning toward for President in 2024! Who would you pick? Trump? DeSantis? Vote today!

Dobbs Anniversary Approaches; Social Conservatives United on Abortion

92% of social conservatives believe abortion should not be legal in most cases

In the only straw poll for and by social conservatives exclusively, of 13,928 social conservatives who have taken the poll to-date, 92% of them confirm that abortion should never be legal or should only be allowed up to 6 weeks, with 66% of that group making no exceptions or making an exception only for the life of the mother. Family Policy Alliance is releasing these preliminary results in celebration of the one-year anniversary of the overturn of Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court’s June 24, 2022, decision Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Craig DeRoche, President and CEO for Family Policy Alliance responded to these overwhelmingly pro-life early results:

“Since the high Court correctly overturned Roe v. Wade, the President, the abortion industry and the media have been spinning a narrative that abortion is a divisive issue, especially among party leaders.

“But our Social Conservative Straw Poll confirms that for social conservatives, abortion is a uniting issue. Either everyone matters or no one matters. Abortion is a a grave human rights violation against both mother and child. We will continue to compete with the abortion industry for every precious human life—and we will win.

“Social conservatives represent one of the nation’s largest voting blocks at 38%. Social conservatives are finding their voice, and speaking together with clarity — even as division and confusion creep into other political groups. That unified voice  carries significant weight on election day, and we have proven that candidates who stand with conviction against abortion can carry the day in the voting booths.

“Glenn Youngkin’s win in Virginia was just the beginning. We predict the 2024 election will be the ‘year of the social conservative’ as voters prioritize issues like abortion, parental rights, and protecting children from sexualization and transgender extremism.”

The Social Conservative Straw Poll will continue to run and gather results. Family Policy Alliance will release the final results on the question of abortion, as well as who social conservatives favor for President in 2024, this summer.

Social conservatives are still able to take the Social Conservative Straw Poll at Social Conservative Straw Poll.

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.


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


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


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


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


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!
