Dear Friends,

Along with our allies at Center for Arizona Policy and Do No Harm Medicine, we have an urgent request for your help to protect victims of transgender ideology.

The Arizona legislature passed Senate Bill (S.B.) 1511, a simple bill that guarantees equal care and insurance coverage for these brave individuals who have been taken advantage of by predatory medical professionals. The Arizona House and Senate have both passed this bill, and we need your help to encourage Governor Katie Hobbs to sign it into law.

This important bill protects people who fell prey to the lie pushed by transgender activists and some medical professionals that they needed harmful, life-altering medical procedures to be their true selves. This bill would help hold the medical professionals and insurance companies that facilitate or perform so-called “gender transition” surgeries accountable for their predatory actions by requiring them to provide equal coverage for detransition treatments.

Detransitioners are people who regret the harm caused to them by undergoing harmful procedures to attempt to change their appearance and bodily functions to align with their perceived sex. They now seek to live in alignment with their biological sex. Such people are incredible allies in the fight to protect others from these experimental and irreversibly harmful procedures, and their stories are powerful examples of the dangers of so-called “gender affirming” procedures pushed by transgender activists and predatory medical professionals.

Detransitioners are real and deserve protection and empowerment to tell their stories. Along with our friends at Center for Arizona Policy and Do No Harm Medicine, we need your help making sure this bill becomes law. Please send a message to Governor Katie Hobbs today urging her to sign S.B. 1511 into law and ensure detransitioners receive the protection and help they need.

It only takes a minute in our Action Center. By doing so, you will help ensure Arizona law helps those that have been abandoned and neglected by health insurance companies and medical providers.

Sincerely,Joseph Kohm

Recently, South Carolina became the 23rd state to pass a Help Not Harm bill protecting children from irreversibly damaging so-called “gender transition” procedures. No child is born in the wrong body, and our friends at Palmetto Family Council have ensure South Carolina is the latest state to protect vulnerable children struggling with gender dysphoria. Hear from Palmetto President Steve Pettit about how it happened!

At the same time, South Carolina also took a huge step in protecting children from the harms of pornography. FPA has worked hard to facilitate a coalition of states to pass age verification requirements for online pornography. This coalition includes South Carolina, and they got it done this year! The Governor signed both Help Not Harm and age verification on the same day. You won’t want to miss hearing how all this remarkable success came about!

Dear Friends,

We are so excited to share yet another milestone victory with you!

In a massive win for vulnerable children, the South Carolina State House recently concurred with the State Senate and passed H. 4624, the “Help Not Harm” bill.

And today Governor Henry McMasters signed it into law!

H. 4624, which is based on our model Help Not Harm bill, will protect vulnerable South Carolina children struggling with gender dysphoria from the irreversible harm of so-called gender transition procedures. These dangerous, experimental, and irreversible procedures include mastectomies or “top surgery,” as well as puberty blocking drugs and cross sex hormones. 

South Carolina is now the 23rd state to pass a Help Not Harm bill, protecting vulnerable children from these barbaric procedures.

We want to especially congratulate our friends at Palmetto Family Council, who have worked tirelessly on this multi-year effort to pass a Help Not Harm bill and protect children struggling with gender dysphoria.

But ultimately, we want to thank YOU for making this victory, and the many before it, possible. These victories are so very important, but are only possible because of you and the grace of God.

America is in a time of national reckoning with transgender ideology, which is uniquely targeting vulnerable children. YOU and likeminded people across the nation have been essential to our state-by-state effort to turn the tide and take a stand for children struggling with who God made them to be. We pray that you would continue to partner with us on this noble effort to protect the futures of our boys and girls.

For our children,Joseph Kohm

In 1972, Title IX was enacted to protect girls and young women in our public schools from discrimination and ensure equal opportunities for them. In a sick twist, the Biden Administration released its new Title IX rule that is an active assault on our girls.

We need you to sign onto our open letter to President Biden because if this rule goes into effect, it will force every public educational institution in America to allow men full access to bathrooms, locker rooms, scholarships, and likely even sports teams.

It is a slap in the face to girls, women, and parents everywhere.

Only a hundred years ago members of President Biden’s party fought women’s suffrage in Congress tooth and nail. Today’s modern radicals have brought that same misogynistic fight to our school system by putting boys in girls’ most intimate settings. Your daughter, sister, niece, or granddaughter should NEVER have to undress in front of a boy regardless of what our President says. This is twisted and evil.

Once more, moms and dads are under attack by the Biden Administration, too. K-12 schools would be mandated to accept a child’s new gender identity irrespective of their biological sex, without notifying or seeking consent from the child’s parents. We’ve seen horror stories related to this all over our country, yet the Biden Administration sees it as not enough. This is a direct assault on our First Amendment freedoms of speech and religion, and parental rights.

While these egregious measures will be fought in court, this takes time. In the interim, we call on YOU to sign our open letter to protect girls nationwide. This will be sent to the Biden White House to remind them that this grotesque endangerment of girls and affront to parental rights is NOT acceptable.

Sincerely,

Dylan Jeremiah
Director, Government Affairs

Last week, we told you how WPATH (the self-appointed international group which established itself as the authority on transgender “standards of care”) had been rocked by scandal. That scandal was the result of hundreds of pages of leaked documents and videos.

As we learn more, we find that inside WPATH there has been controversy, disarray and conflict.

The shocking thing is that despite that disagreement, all attempts to have rational discussions about real concerns for children were dismissed internally. Instead, the group pursued a radical agenda putting children on the fast-track to transgender procedures, simply shutting down disagreements and discussions about the most basic of psychological and medical concerns.

Along with our supporters, Family Policy Alliance recognized this early on and together we have been fighting this agenda since 2017.

To date we have worked together to pass Help Not Harm bills in 21 states!

Now, the entire world must begin to deal with the fact that WPATH and its “standards” appear to be nothing more than a political agenda.

Your help is key to continuing the progress in our work to protect children from this ruthless political movement.

Every day 115 children are diagnosed with gender dysphoria in the US and that unfortunately sets them upon the one-way street toward transition established by WPATH.

Now is not the time to relent – the truth is on our side, and we must push forward. Your help is key to that.

Please consider partnering with us today.

Dear Friends,

We have an encouraging update for you from the frontlines of the fight to protect children and families from radical gender ideology.

An organization called the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) has provided cover for healthcare professionals across the world by promulgating “standards of care” for children struggling with gender dysphoria. These so-called “standards” encouraged doctors to attempt to “transition” children from one sex to another (something that is impossible) as early as possible. They also allow doctors to hide behind the justification that they were simply following the “standard of care.”

The fatal flaw in WPATH’s perverse plan: it’s not backed by science.

Recently leaked internal WPATH files revealed that the organization engages in experimental, blatantly harmful treatments that violate the Hippocratic Oath and contradict their own public statements claiming their standards of care are based in evidence and science. Those public statements have allowed these barbaric procedures to be covered by insurance in hospitals across the world.

FPA has worked successfully in 21 states to protect these vulnerable children from harmful and irreversible procedures done in the name of transgender ideology.

This important leak discredits one of the world’s leading transgender activist organizations and takes us one important step further to ensuring children struggling with gender dysphoria are protected everywhere.

Your support has made this possible, and we ask that you would continue that partnership.

Every day approximately 115 children in the United States are diagnosed with gender dysphoria. WPATH “standards” would send them down a path of barbaric, experimental “medicine.” You can help us to push back against deceptive practices by financially supporting our ongoing work to enact Help Not Harm in even more states.

Together, we will ensure children are not preyed upon because they are confused about who God made them to be. We will ensure they receive real help, not harm.

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.

Dear Friends,

Today’s world can’t seem to define basic biological terms like “male” and “female.”

Infamously, a current US Supreme Court Justice couldn’t even define the word “woman” during her confirmation hearings. And now, the Biden Administration continues to work furiously to erase all distinctions between men and women in federal antidiscrimination law by redefining “sex” to include “gender identity” in Title IX. This will destroy all the protections and opportunities the Civil Rights Act has afforded women since 1972.

We are excited to tell you about new piece of model legislation FPA is proud to endorse: The model Defining Sex Act, written by our friends at the Heritage Foundation.

States can and should fight back against this to protect women and their opportunities, and one of the ways they can do so is to define terms like “men,” “women,” and “sex” in their laws. The model Defining Sex Act does just that, establishing definitions of these terms that are consistent with God’s created order as expressed in biological reality.

Instituting these definitions in your states law is critical to to following:

  • Protecting the rights of female athletes to compete against only girls and women in sports and for athletic scholarships,
  • Guarding women’s private spaces such as restrooms, locker rooms, and changing areas from use by men, and
  • Ensuring a subjective sense of “gender identity” doesn’t replace the important, God-created differences between men and women in the law.

Because of your partnership and efforts, much work has already been done in this area with the passage of 24 Save Girls Sports laws across the country, and that is worth celebrating!

Despite that, the Biden Administrations efforts to change the definition of sex in Title IX continue to threaten all that hard work to protect women’s rights and opportunities. Passing the model Defining Sex Act in states across the country is the next step to solidifying these protections and many others.

For these reasons, FPA is proud to endorse this legislation. You can help by advocating for this important bill to be introduced in your state legislature today.

Take action by sending a message to your legislators today asking them to introduce this bill in your state legislature or, if the bill has already been introduced, to cosponsor it and support its passage.

Click on the button below to send your message today and help us work to get the Defining Sex Act bill moving in your state.

Together, along with our friends at the Heritage Foundation, we will ensure God’s beautiful design of men and women is reflected in our state laws.

Can you help us today?
