Help Not Harm: A National Child Safety Campaign

New campaign aims to protect children from dangerous transgender interventions

Colorado Springs, CO – Today, Family Policy Alliance launched its nationwide “Help Not Harm” campaign. The project aims to multiply the number of states that legally protect children from the damage of transgender interventions. Currently, only two states have such protections.

Parents and lawmakers who visit the Help Not Harm website will find information about the detrimental effects of “transition.” “Transition” can include puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and even mutilating surgeries.  The site also includes answers to common questions about gender dysphoria, transition, and meaningful ways to help struggling children. These answers were reviewed by experts at the Christian Medical & Dental Associations (CMDA).

But these educational resources are only the beginning, says Family Policy Alliance’s Meridian Baldacci.

“This year, Arkansas became the first state to protect children from dangerous transgender interventions,” says Baldacci. “This groundbreaking move set a new standard in child safety laws, and it’s high time for the rest of the nation to measure up. Every day, youth around the country are endangered by transgender interventions that can leave them sterile, missing healthy body parts, and filled with regret. Kids who are hurting and struggling need help, not harm, and that’s why we’re on a mission to help more leaders step up and protect children.”

The Help Not Harm webpage invites visitors to sign a petition asking lawmakers nationwide to protect children. A line in the petition reads, “Minors should not be sterilized, mutilated, and left to deal with the regret that may follow. I stand with Americans across the country who believe that children deserve Help Not Harm, and I call on lawmakers to join the fight!”

Meanwhile, Family Policy Alliance and its allies around the country are working to advance public policy in alignment with these goals – and push back against policy that will continue to put children in harm’s way.

At a time when children who exhibit gender dysphoria often are automatically pushed into gender transition, Help Not Harm counters this harmful narrative in a powerful way.

Autumn Leva, Vice President of Strategy at Family Policy Alliance, articulated it this way:

“For far too long children who have legitimate gender conflict have been pressured into transition by politicized medicine.

“But the data shows that the vast majority of children who experience gender dysphoria do reconcile with their birth sex when they are not pressured to begin ‘transition’ procedures.

“A child who is not old enough to buy cough syrup over the counter or get a tattoo should not bear the weight of the decision to alter their body in ways that have the potential to be both permanent and harmful.

“Children who experience gender dysphoria should not be subjected to experimental treatment and harmful procedures being hawked by a political agenda. Help Not Harm is here to spare children a lifetime of regret resulting from politicized medicine and unsound advice.”

Family Policy Alliance plans to provide more opportunities for action, as well as educational information and events, in the coming months. The first of these events, “The Truth About Transition,” will take place on September 14 at 1 PM ET. During the free event, Americans will have the opportunity to hear from a medical professional as he shares fact-based answers to common questions about gender dysphoria and “transition.” The event aims to equip people with the facts, so they can in turn speak out, protect their own families, and be prepared with winsome answers to the most critical questions facing our society. Those interested can sign up here.

Statements from supporting organizations and allies:

“We should never grow weary of protecting children. I’m proud of Arkansas legislators who were not afraid to stand up to the political mob and put kids first. Now, it’s time for other states to do the same. I’m so thankful for the partnership of Family Policy Alliance in this effort and I fully endorse the Help Not Harm campaign. We must work together to pass legislation like the SAFE Act across the country so that children in every state are protected from chemical and surgical castration.” – Arkansas State Representative Robin Lundstrum (Lead House Sponsor of the Arkansas SAFE Act)

“CMDA supports Family Policy Alliance’s ‘Help Not Harm’ legislative goals. As healthcare professionals, we have concerns about the long-term damage of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and the removal of healthy body parts, as these options are not proven to alleviate distress in those struggling to identify with their biological sex. We hope more states will seek to protect children from being permanently impacted by these harmful procedures and interventions which are unfortunately becoming more common in many states.” –Jeff Barrows, DO, MA (Ethics), (Senior Vice President of Bioethics and Public Policy, Christian Medical & Dental Associations)

“It is profoundly unethical to interfere in the normal physical development of a child as part of a process ‘affirming’ a ‘gender identity’ at odds with bodily sex. Children deserve help, not harm, in embracing reality, including the reality of their body. Prudent legislation is needed to protect children from the many harms of experimental ‘gender’ therapies.” – Ryan T. Anderson, Ph.D. (President, Ethics & Public Policy Center)

“The Help not Harm Campaign is one whose time has come. Shamefully, American pediatric policy on transgender belief in youth stands in stark contrast to the international standard of care. Pediatric policy in the UK, Sweden and Finland, for example, is based on the principle of ‘First do no harm’. They prioritize the psychological exploration and treatment of underlying causes for transgender belief in youth. This standard not only resolves gender dysphoria in youth, but also averts the irreparable damage wrought by the life-altering chemical and surgical interventions promoted to American kids as young as age 8 .” –Michelle Cretella, M.D. (Executive Director, American College of Pediatricians)

“There was a time not so long ago when all medical practitioners agreed that biological reality should trump ideology and that healthcare should follow science and data, not politics. Unfortunately, many in the medical community today have fallen captive to the mistaken idea, pushed by left-wing activists, that a person’s sex is determined by their mind, not their body, and they have now begun to push this idea onto children, prescribing them highly experimental drugs with dangerous, long-term side effects and putting them on an irreversible, life-altering path which they are too young to fully comprehend. This is a frightening trend which must be opposed.

“Thankfully, states like Arkansas and Tennessee have begun to act, passing laws like the SAFE Act which would ban these hazardous and unproven interventions on children. But more states must follow suit. That’s why we are proud to stand with Family Policy Alliance in advocating for these protections of vulnerable children. We must ensure that the medical community is held accountable to its most important standard: to help, not harm.” – Terry Schilling (President, American Principles Project)

“A child who rejects his or her body is sending up a distress flare, asking for help. Medical ‘gender transitions’ not only don’t help, they harm the child’s healthy body but fail to resolve the child’s inner pain. The consequences are devastating. Let’s help, not harm these vulnerable children and adolescents.” – Mary Rice Hasson, JD (Person and Identity Project at Ethics & Public Policy Center)

“If children can’t be legally trusted to buy a beer, they also lack the maturity to consent to permanent infertility and removal of healthy organs. Children struggling to accept their bodies need compassion and help not further harm from adults.” – Roger Severino (HHS Accountability at Ethics & Public Policy Center)

Craig’s List: The Best of Family Policy in 2021

Family Policy Alliance names the best pro-family efforts of 2021

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – Family Policy Alliance today announced its 2021 “Craig’s (Best) List” award winners, awarded to the best pro-family states and legislative efforts of 2021. This follows last week’s Craig’s (Worst) List, “awarded” to the most concerning policy moves for families.

“Craig’s List,” named for Family Policy Alliance CEO Craig DeRoche, is designed to honor the hard-fought victories of pro-family leaders around the country – and build public awareness for more concerning policies.

DeRoche congratulated the award winners: “Congratulations to each of the 2021 Craig’s List recipients! In the midst of a challenging year for our nation, people in these states showed up, spoke out, and made a difference for their families. Well done.”

Meridian Baldacci, Policy and Communications Strategist at Family Policy Alliance, said of the awards:

“In the year of COVID, a contentious election, civil unrest, and global crises, Americans worked hard to protect their families. At Family Policy Alliance, our vision is a nation where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished. And this year, against all odds and by the grace of God, we saw many state leaders and advocates move us closer to making that vision a reality. And that’s important, because the Biden Administration and progressive leaders in Congress want to push a radical agenda on the states. But the states are pushing back. From the salient school choice victories, to a wave of #SaveGirlsSports laws, to the groundbreaking child safety protections in Arkansas, real America is standing up. And that deserves to be celebrated.”

The top award, “Most Pro-Family State of the Year,” went to Montana in recognition of its numerous pro-family victories. Among them were a #SaveGirlsSports law to protect female athletes, tax credit education scholarships, and several pro-life protections including preventing abortions when the baby is capable of feeling pain. The state also achieved important victories for parental rights and religious freedom.

The “Groundbreaking Family Policy Award” was given to Arkansas for their first-in-the-nation child safety law that protects children from dangerous transgender interventions. These interventions, which can have damaging and irreversible effects, include puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and mutilating surgeries.

“Defensive Player of the Year” was awarded to New Jersey for the work of individuals in the state who stood strong to prevent the governor’s radical abortion proposal from becoming law. If it became law, the proposal would allow abortion up to birth, and permit out-of-state visitors to obtain free abortions if they could not afford it. The latter provision would open the door for human traffickers to obtain taxpayer-funded abortions for young girls.

“Offensive Player of the Year” was given to Iowa for its many pro-family wins. Among these were an important pro-life win in court and another in the legislature, expanded school choice tax credits, a safeguard preventing critical race theory from being taught as a fact in schools, and a measure ensuring parents who choose public school may send their children to the public school of their choice.

The full list of awards can be found here. Other awards and awardees include the “Best Team Effort” (Virginia), “Cherishing Life Award” (Arizona), “Facing the Giants Award” (Florida), “Defending Religious Freedom Award” (Kansas), “Wide Open Future School Choice Award” (West Virginia), and the “Save Girls’ Sports Award” (awarded to the states who passed #SaveGirlsSports laws).

NDAA Amendment Shows Woke DC Now Cancelling Rosie the Riveter

Senate Armed Services Committee approves an amendment that would require women to register for the draft—the Family Policy movement responds

WASHINGTON, D.C.—As the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) continues to make its way through the Senate, Family Policy Alliance and the alliance of state-based family policy councils raise the alarm that now Woke D.C. is trying to cancel Rosie the Riveter.

Earlier this week, the Senate Armed Services Committee approved an amendment to the NDAA that would require women to register for the draft. This is the latest disappointing move out of Washington, D.C., after months of the Biden Administration’s clear agenda to erase any distinction between the male and female sexes in law and in culture. From the Administration’s stated top priority, the Equality Act, to their recent “guidance” from the Department of Education that turns Title IX on its head by declaring it to be “discriminatory” when men are not permitted access to women’s locker rooms, sports teams, championships, or scholarships if they self-identify as women, the erasure of women appears to be a top priority in D.C.

The state-based family policy councils and Family Policy Alliance responded to the amendment with this joint statement:

Now Woke DC is canceling Rosie the Riveter? Men and women are equal under the law and equally made in the image of God, but Woke DC has an agenda to erase any differences between men and women. Insisting that women need to be drafted in order to fully participate in our nation’s defense demeans women who have kept our country safe and on track on the front lines in our manufacturing plants and labor force, with our families, and by their voluntary service in the armed forces.

To win a war but have no American families left at home would be doing the enemy’s job for them. Who will be left to raise children when both mom and dad have given their lives in required service? Will that be the government—the same government complicit in the nation’s foster care system and lobbying to cancel faith-based adoption and foster care? Mandating women register for the draft is another flawed idea from DC pretending women do not exist.”

Now that the NDAA has cleared the Senate Armed Services Committee, including the Committee’s amendment that would require women to register for the draft, it will head next to the full Senate floor for consideration. The collective Family Policy movement will be urging Senators to reject the amendment.

FPA to Biden Administration: Follow the Law & Honor
Basic Human Dignity

Colorado Springs, Colo. July 28, 20921 – Today, Family Policy Alliance responded to the Biden Administration’s proposed rule to change billing policies to hide abortion charges under Obamacare. The law requires abortion payments to be billed separately from actual healthcare costs. The law protects taxpayers from being forced to fund abortions. However, the Biden Administration’s proposed rule combines the charges, allowing the charges to be hidden, putting taxpayer dollars at risk.

Autumn Leva, Vice President of Policy for Family Policy Alliance, stated:

“Not one cent of taxpayer dollars should ever be used in violation of the law, nor in violation of basic human dignity. The law requires clear separation between taxpayer funds and abortion funding to protect taxpayers from being forced to fund procedures that end human life and to ensure transparency of where and how funds issued. However, the Biden Administration’s proposed rule blatantly undermines the law, transparency, and the dignity of taxpayers and the preborn community. It should be rescinded immediately.

“Each time an abortion occurs, a mother has lost her child and a child has lost its life. It cannot be too much to ask that the Biden Administration to maintain the clear, legally required separation to ensure taxpayer dollars do not fund this violent and deadly practice. This Administration must stop discriminating against the marginalized community of preborn humans.”

Family Policy Alliance’s official comment to the proposed rule can be read here.

BREAKING: Department of Education Erases Women and Girls

On Title IX anniversary, the Department undermines protections meant for females

 

Today, on the 49th anniversary of Title IX, the U.S. Department of Education issued two sweeping documents attempting to redefine sex in federal law – including reinterpreting Title IX itself. Title IX is a federal law that ensures both sexes have equal access to educational programs, including athletic programs. Signed in 1972, its goal was to advance women’s opportunities. The law has played a significant role in giving female student athletes the athletic opportunities they enjoy today.

As written, the Department of Education’s documents would effectively force schools to ignore biological sex and instead prioritize students’ gender identity, self-declared at any time for any reason. Under the documents, to not comply with these demands could constitute “discrimination.”

Meridian Baldacci, Policy and Communications Strategist at Family Policy Alliance, stated:

 It’s an unhappy anniversary for Title IX.

Title IX was created to prevent discrimination against females in the educational and athletic contexts. It paved the way for many opportunities for women – including the 2 in 5 girls who now play school sports. But today, the Biden Administration single-handedly turned Title IX on its head to say that women are discriminating against men when they have concerns about men being called ‘women,’ using their locker rooms, competing on their sports teams, or taking away their championships and scholarship opportunities. That the Department of Education is demanding this in the name of ‘protecting’ students and stopping ‘discrimination’ is stunning.  This move is misguided and antithetical to the purpose of Title IX. The good news is that states are pushing back. And they must, because our children are counting on them.”

Some 8 states so far have laws protecting female athletes – and in total over 30 states have introduced such legislation. This evening, Family Policy Alliance will livestream a roundtable discussion among leaders protecting female athletes in their own states.

States have begun to push back on other aspects of the Biden agenda, as well. This year, Arkansas became the first state to protect children from transgender experiments. And, parents are increasingly speaking out to their local school districts with concerns about a sexualized agenda.

States have pushed back in the past, as well: when the Obama Administration issued its own similar “guidance” in 2016, 13 states sued and ultimately blocked the guidance from enforcement.

9-0 in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia

Supreme Court Shows Unanimous Support for Religious Freedom

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court released a unanimous judgement in favor of Catholic Social Services and affiliated foster parents in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia.

Autumn Leva, Vice President for Strategy at Family Policy Alliance, stated:

Today’s decision is a significant win for religious freedom—and especially for children. Faith-based foster and adoption agencies should be able to provide important services to the children in their community while abiding by their consciences. Today, the Court affirmed that for Catholic Social Services – and for the many children and families they serve.

The decision also reminds us of why the federal Equality Act – which could be up for a vote anytime in the Senate – is unworkable and inadvisable. The Act would redefine ‘sex’ to include a person’s self-declared ‘sexual orientation and gender identity’ throughout federal civil rights law. By doing that, the Act could be used to force foster and adoption agencies into similar dilemmas to Catholic Social Services – something that that the entire Supreme Court rejected today. The Equality Act would threaten religious freedom and the wellbeing of children, and must be rejected.”

Family Policy Alliance applauds the Supreme Court’s judgement in this case, and thanks the Becket Law team for their leadership in the litigation.

Department of Education Redefines Sex

New Guidance will force schools to allow males on female sports teams and in female locker rooms

 

Today, the Department of Education released a “Notice of Interpretation” explaining that for the purposes of Title IX, the Department will define “sex” as including self-declared sexual orientation and gender identity. To justify this decision, the document relies on applying the Supreme Court’s Title VII Bostock decision to Title IX.

Meridian Baldacci, Policy and Communications Strategist at Family Policy Alliance, stated:

The Department of Education’s decision is bad policy, poor procedure, and a misapplication of the Court’s decision in Bostock.

The Department does not and should not have the power to change the law. Congress has not defined “sex” in Title IX to mean sexual orientation and gender identity. In fact, Congress has repeatedly declined to do so by rejecting the federal Equality Act. And, the Supreme Court was explicit that its own redefinition of sex in Title VII did not apply to other laws.

That Bostock declined to touch Title IX or other laws was a good thing for girls and women. Because of Title IX’s intentional sex-based distinction, girls are not only able to have access to their own sports teams, but also to the many opportunities that access affords. When males are permitted to compete on girls’ teams, males’ natural physiological advantages mean that competitions can be over before they begin. As a result, girls lose out on titles, scholarships, and other elite opportunities which Title IX helped secure for girls in the first place.

It’s ironic that the Department of Education is handing female opportunities to males on a silver platter, and using Title IX to do it.

Preserving female sports is not the only reason Title IX’s sex-based distinction matters. Title IX’s provisions also affect the ability of schools to provide single-sex locker rooms, changing rooms, and other private spaces. Under the Department’s new interpretation, schools will be expected to allow males into female-only spaces, and vice versa. This is an affront to children’s privacy. The Department of Education should not have the power to determine when a child is seen unclothed by a member of the opposite sex.

Not only did the Department of Education act outside its authority today, but in doing so it reminded us of an important fact: the Biden Administration is out of touch with Real America. Ordinary Americans care about protecting girls’ sports, children’s privacy, and the rights of professionals like teachers and doctors. Yet the Biden Administration has promptly ignored each of these groups of people in favor of an agenda that ignores biology and “redefines” sex.

The Department’s actions today underscore the importance of state action to protect women and children from the runaway train of this agenda. Already, over 30 states have introduced legislation, and eight have passed laws, to protect female athletes. And we fully expect that states will push back against this action from the Department of Education. When the Obama Administration issued similar guidance in 2016, 13 states sued and ultimately the guidance was enjoined. Today, for the sake of women and girls, we hope that history repeats itself.”

Court Packing Scheme Would Politicize Court and Endanger Families 

Attempts to change the rules should be dismissed. 

(Colorado Springs, Co. April 16, 2021) – Yesterday, Congressional Democrats introduced legislation to expand the Supreme Court to 13 justices. This effort is aimed at politically “balancing” the court after former President Donald Trump was able to successfully appoint 3 justices to the high court.

Autumn Leva, Vice President for Strategy at Family Policy Alliance, offered the following statement: 

The Supreme Court doesn’t play for either political team. They wear robes, not jerseys. Congressional Democrats attempting to change the number of justices because they disagree with certain policy outcomes is akin to a major football team rewriting the NFL rules in their favor any time they dislike how a game turned out.

Allowing one political party in Congress to remake the Court whenever they disagree with its decisions would make the Court more political than ever. It would give Congress – a body that can barely do its own job most days– control over two of the three branches of our national government. And, it would seal the court’s fate as just another political body to be run by the richest and most powerful, not governed by the rule of law our founders painstakingly created in the Constitution.”

BREAKING: Arkansas Legislature Overrides Governor’s Veto of SAFE Act – Statement

New law is the first of its kind in the nation

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas – This afternoon, both chambers of the Arkansas legislature voted to override Governor Hutchinson’s veto of the “SAFE Act”, a bill that protects children from life-altering transgender physical interventions including puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries.

Autumn Leva, Vice President of Strategy for Family Policy Alliance, offered the following statement:

“The SAFE Act is the next step forward in our long history of protecting children with our nation’s laws. Arkansas law has already determined that children, for their own protection, should not work in mines, get a tattoo, or purchase alcohol or NyQuil. The SAFE Act clarifies that if tattoos aren’t safe for our children, neither are procedures that amputate healthy body parts or render them sterile before the age of 18.

“We applaud bill sponsors Rep. Robin Lundstrum and Sen. Alan Clark for their leadership and the Arkansas legislature for their bold decision to override the Governor’s veto of the SAFE Act, demonstrating their commitment to protecting children. The children who are struggling the most should be protected the most, not pushed to life-altering physical interventions. The SAFE Act has these children in mind. The majority of children who struggle to accept their God-given body will come to embrace their sex – if they are not pushed to a radical intervention first. In our world today, though, there are those who believe that the only solution is to push children to such radical extremes as amputating healthy body parts and potentially losing their capacity to have children of their own. The SAFE Act protects these children from such extreme experimentation, while continuing to ensure that children can seek basic talk therapy that may help them address underlying concerns.

“The legislature’s decision today is monumental not only because it overrode the Governor’s decision, but also and especially because the Arkansas law will serve as the first of its kind in the nation. This was a bipartisan effort in Arkansas, as well as in other states considering similar legislation. We hope that Arkansas’ courageous decision will embolden many more states to protect their own children.”
