Here’s the Way Forward After Roe Is Overturned

Family Policy Alliance launches Phase 2 of After Roe campaign ahead of Roe v. Wade anniversary

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Family Policy Alliance today launched Phase 2 of its After Roe campaign, outlining the “way forward” for the pro-life movement after Roe v. Wade is overturned. With just two days until the 49th Anniversary of Roe, and one day until the annual March for Life – the largest peaceful human rights gathering in the world – pro-life advocates need to know how they can protect life in their own states.

Meridian Baldacci, spokesperson for Family Policy Alliance, offered the following statement:

“Our ultimate goal after Roe is overturned – whether this June or soon thereafter – is a nation where life is not only protected but cherished. With Phase 2 of our After Roe campaign, we’ve laid out the way forward for states to fully protect the dignity of life inside the womb, just as we do for those outside the womb.

“Our team did the research, categorizing each state as “Strongly Pro-Life,” “Somewhat Pro-Life,” or “Pro-Abortion” – because after Roe, not every state will ban abortion right away. In fact, most will have a long way to go to protect life. And across the states, there will be a greater need than ever to promote a culture of life, protect families and foster communities where life is truly cherished.”

If Roe were overturned tomorrow, 18 states would have laws that mostly or completely ban abortion, 11 states would have some restrictions on abortion, and 21 states and the District of Columbia would have either an established “right to choose” or laws that protect that “right.”

Family Policy Alliance launched its After Roe campaign with Phase 1 in December 2021. The campaign aims to support pro-life citizens to stand for life on the frontlines of their own states. As the latest development in the campaign, the “Way Forward” casts a vision for what states can do to protect life, even before Roe is overturned.

“When we speak of a world after Roe, we are, of course, talking about ending abortion,” said Craig DeRoche, President and CEO of Family Policy Alliance. “But we are also talking about much more than ending abortion: We are talking about creating a nation that truly cherishes life. That means protecting unborn children from abortion, supporting their families, and fostering communities that honor life at every stage.”

Importantly, the page also features an interactive map where users can see at a glance how their state’s abortion laws stack up against other states, then click on their own state to learn more about abortion laws in their area as well as the “Way Forward” to protect life in their community.

Roe v. Wade could soon be overturned. When that happens – and yes, we’re saying when, not if – will your state still allow abortions?

The answer varies widely from state to state. In a few states, abortion will be mostly or completely banned. In some states, abortion will sadly remain widely available. And in many states, the status of abortion regulation will be somewhere in between those two – banned or heavily regulated in some cases, allowed in others.

How does your state measure up? Click here to find out.

In every state, it will be more critical than ever to not only end abortion but promote a culture of life throughout your community.

After Roe, we must work harder than ever to protect the unborn, support their families, and foster communities that truly cherish life. But that won’t happen overnight. It will take dedicated citizens in every state advocating for the changes that need to happen in their area.

Your state has unique opportunities – and will face unique threats. And when you click on the image below, you’ll be able to learn about policy opportunities and what’s happening in your state. Plus, in most states, there is a Family Policy Council standing for life – discover if there is one in your state and learn how you can partner with them!

After Roe, Big Abortion will push harder than ever to promote abortion in your state. They’ll do that because they know that life is winning nationally, and we have the upper hand. Will you play a part on the winning team?

BREAKING: Supreme Court Stops Biden Vaccine Mandate

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Supreme Court has struck down the Biden Administration’s OSHA vaccine mandate for large employers – a mandate which included no religious exemption.

Meridian Baldacci, Spokesperson for Family Policy Alliance, released the following statement:

“Today, real America – and real American values – prevailed over the heavy hand of the Biden Administration. Religious freedom was rightly upheld, an ever more radical Administration was rightly restrained, and companies were allowed to simply let their workers work. This is a victory for families across America.”

Prior to the case’s hearing, organizations from around the country signed an amicus brief arguing that the mandate should not stand because it did not include a religious exemption. Family Policy Alliance and allied organizations from 30 states joined in the brief, led by Texas Values.

The brief is available for download here.

The Court also allowed a vaccine mandate for workers at federally funded health care facilities to stand; that mandate includes a religious exemption.

BREAKING: Biden Administration Recklessly Allows Women to Receive Harmful, Life-Threatening Abortion Pills By Mail

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that they will allow women to receive abortion pills that cause detrimental harm, sometimes resulting in death, by mail.

These chemical drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol (the first one is generally taken at a doctor’s office and the second one at home) have a complication rate four times that of first trimester surgical abortions, yet the procedure is more lucrative for the abortion industry.

“The Biden administration cares more about padding the wallets of their friends at Planned Parenthood than they do about the safety and health of women,” said Nicole Hudgens, Government Affairs for Family Policy Alliance. “This reckless, all-out push for chemical abortions, especially by mail, is extremely dangerous for women. Despite the fact that abortion-inducing drugs are four times more fatal than surgical abortions, we continue to see the Administration’s push for their expansion of these abortion drugs with little to no safeguards. Women have died from these abortion pills and thousands have suffered life-threatening complications from them. We will not stand in silence while women suffer at the hands of the heartless abortion industry.”

Supreme Court Allows Pro-Life Texas Law to Stand

The Court rejected multiple challenges, including one from the Biden Administration

Washington, DC – The U.S. Supreme Court has chosen not to strike down the Texas Heartbeat Law, a law that has saved thousands of lives by preventing abortions if the baby has a detectable heartbeat.

Family Policy Alliance responded to the news with the following statement from Nicole Hudgens, Government Affairs for Family Policy Alliance:

“Today, the Court has ensured that more Texas children will have the chance to celebrate a birthday. We celebrate today’s victory with our friends in Texas, and eagerly await the day when every child across America has a chance to celebrate a birthday.”

By dismissing the Biden-Harris administration’s attack on preborn children – and the attacks of many others – the Court has sent a clear signal that life is winning. But this is only the beginning. In 2022, the Court is expected to rule on a case that has the potential to unravel the dark reign of Roe v. Wade. Even as we await that decision, and as other challenges to the Texas law work through the legal system, we are already working for a nation after Roe.

Senator Schumer announced the Senate will consider changes to the chamber’s voting rules as early as TODAY. Not only that, but these changes would be made so he can push a federal election takeover.

Please urge your Senator to OPPOSE removing the filibuster and OPPOSE a federal election takeover!

Specifically, Senator Schumer wants to change the filibuster rule so that the Senate can attempt to force through federal election overhaul bills, including S. 2747.

S. 2747 would undermine state voter ID laws, require political nonprofits to disclose donors, mandate same-day voter registration, and allow candidate campaigns to be funded by state governments that opt-in.

If Senator Schumer gets his way, a simple majority vote (attained by 50 Democrats voting in favor and Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie) could push a federal election overhaul bill to President Biden’s desk.

What stands between him and this takeover? The current filibuster rule.

If you do not want to see minority voices silenced in the U.S. Senate, please urge your Senator to OPPOSE removing the filibuster and OPPOSE a federal election takeover by clicking on our Action Center here!

For Freedom,

Nicole Hudgens

Family Policy Alliance Launches After Roe Campaign, Prepares for Pro-Life Battlefield in the States

As Supreme Court hears Dobbs case, Family Policy Alliance equips citizens for what comes After Roe

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, as the Supreme Court hears a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade, Family Policy Alliance is launching a campaign that prepares for what comes After Roe. The campaign’s vision: 50 pro-life states.

Whether in today’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case or another future case, many legal experts believe Roe v. Wade’s days are numbered. But a Roe reversal would not automatically outlaw abortion across America. Instead, experts agree that most likely, each state would be responsible for regulating abortion. Each state would decide the destiny of their unborn children. States would face vastly different scenarios after Roe, ranging from very pro-life to strongly pro-abortion.

To help citizens prepare for this reality, the After Roe website prominently features an interactive map where users can click on their own state to find out what the abortion laws would be following Roe, and – in most states – how they can connect with their state family policy council to take action for life.

Family Policy Alliance is honored to work in alliance with the network of family policy councils across the nation, a group of independent organizations standing for family values in their states. These organizations have stood for life in their states—in many cases for decades—and their alliance uniquely positions the family policy movement to lead in a post-Roe world.

Roe’s time is up!” said Craig DeRoche, President & CEO of Family Policy Alliance. “After 49 horrific years, Roe’s reign of terror may soon end. But that doesn’t mean abortion will end right away. Instead, the battle for life could quickly shift to the states. Family Policy Alliance, together with family policy councils across the nation, stands ready to compete with the abortion industry—and win!—for every precious life. In a post-Roe world, every pro-life vote matters even more and every state is directly responsible for the lives lost or saved. The After Roe campaign exists to equip pro-life men and women across the nation to join with us.”

The After Roe campaign aims to support pro-life citizens to stand for life on the frontlines of their own states. This involves 1) educating citizens about what a Roe overturn would really mean, 2) mobilizing them to take action after Roe, and 3) preparing to have a truly pro-life world after Roe.

With an eye toward action, the After Roe site helps visitors connect not only with their family policy council, but with national efforts, as well. The site features ways to partner with other leading pro-life organizations including:

  • Alliance Defending Freedom
  • American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists
  • American College of Pediatricians
  • Americans United for Life
  • Christian Medical & Dental Associations
  • Concerned Women for America
  • Family Research Council
  • Focus on the Family
  • March for Life
  • National Institute of Family & Life Advocates
  • Students for Life of America
  • Susan B. Anthony List
  • 40 Days for Life

Creating a pro-life nation requires a movement of people ready to protect the most vulnerable. Each state will have unique needs – which means the movement needs people in every state. Family Policy Alliance invites others to sign the After Roe pledge – stating their commitment to fight for life after Roe. Pledge-signers will be among the first to hear about key action opportunities for life. This After Roe team will be equipped with information on pro-life events, breaking news, educational opportunities, grassroots mobilization, and more.

Even before Roe ends, the work of After Roe has already begun.

House Democrats Pass Atrocious Anti-Family, Pro-Abortion, Socialist Tax Spending Bill

Pelosi and her troops support massive abortion funding, Critical Race Theory, and relentless Equality Act agenda

 WASHINTON, D.C. –  Today, the House Democrats passed an atrocious human infrastructure bill, H.R. 5376, on a mostly party line vote of 220-213. This alleged “Build Back Better” Act filled with anti-family language includes a desperate push for the Woke D.C. agenda—Equality Act language, critical race theory, and abortion funding.

“This bill should be called the ‘Tear Down, not Build Back’ Act,” said Craig DeRoche, President & CEO of Family Policy Alliance “This bill shamefully makes American taxpayers complicit in taking American lives in abortion. It demeans every mother by labeling her a ‘pregnant, lactating, or postpartum individual,’ while pushing a radical agenda that claims any man can be a woman when he chooses. Clearly, Pelosi and nearly the entire Democratic caucus weren’t watching what just happened in Virginia. American families are tired of Woke DC’s agenda leaking into their homes and schools.”

The Republicans fought back against this massive 2,466-page bill. Last night, GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy gave the longest House floor speech opposing the Democrats’ absurd socialist tax and spending legislation (beating Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s previous record).

The U.S. House of Representatives send H.R. 5376 to the U.S. Senate for consideration. Family Policy Alliance will continue strongly opposing this bill in the Senate.

Background

This bill includes the following concerning measures:

Equality Act Language (SOGI)

Radical Left Policies in Public Schools

Abortion Issues

Biden Administration Unveils New Gender Strategy Document

Amidst Parent Outrage, Biden Administration Unveils Radical Gender Strategy Document

Colorado Springs, CO- The nation’s parents are reeling, yet the Biden Administration refuses to listen. Late last week, in between two congressional hearings over a controversial Department of Justice memo, the Biden Administration released a new gender strategy document. The 42-page document, entitled “National Strategy on Gender Equality and Equity,” outlines the Administration’s promotion of a range of liberal priorities – including transgender policies – in schools, the workforce, and international efforts. The document also promotes abortion and the removal of the Hyde Amendment, meaning President Biden wants to force taxpayers to pay for abortion.

The document claims to promote the “safety, health, and well-being of women and girls in our nation and around the globe.”

Nicole Hudgens, Government Affairs for Family Policy Alliance stated,

“The Biden-Harris Administration blatantly refuses to listen to the American parents who are speaking up and standing against the very radical policies this Administration promotes.

This document promotes policies that allow males to identify as females – policies like the one that likely enabled a male to sexually assault a female student in Virginia.

This is yet another example of what we have known from day one: that this Administration is fast-tracking a radical gender agenda that is dangerous to children, parental rights, education, and the well-being of Americans. Thankfully, parents aren’t backing down and we will continue to stand with them against this radical agenda.”

The announcement of the document came on the heels of two incidents that have drawn national criticism and concern, particularly from parents.

This month, the nation learned of the sexual assault of a girl in Loudoun County, Virginia – by a male who was permitted to enter the girls’ restroom because of the Loudoun School district’s transgender policy. The policy expressly permits access to the bathrooms, locker rooms and other private spaces normally segregated based on sex. They also learned that the girl’s father was arrested after expressing his frustration over the incident at a school board meeting.

And just last week, a congressional hearing focused on a recent Department of Justice memo deploying the FBI in every federal district. The memo was an apparent response to parents standing up and speaking out against radical ideologies like gender theory, critical race theory, and more at their local school board meetings. The DOJ memo was markedly issued just days after the National School Board Association (NSBA) sent a letter to the White House calling out concerned parents—like the father in Loudoun—who spoke out against radical ideologies. The letter identified parents’ actions as “threats” and “equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism.” Now, the NSBA Board says they “regret and apologize” for the letter. Several state school board associations have distanced themselves from NSBA since the initial letter.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland defended the Department of Justice’s memo in last week’s congressional hearing and said he “D[idn’t] know any of the facts of this case” regarding the Loudoun County scandal. Members of the House Judiciary Committee have since called for Attorney General Garland to withdraw the memo.

Today, Attorney General Garland is scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee and will likely be questioned about the memo.
