Dear Arkansas Friend,
Family Policy Alliance joins with our allies at Family Council in calling on legislators to override Gov. Hutchinson’s veto of H.B. 1570, sponsored by Statesmen Academy alum, Rep. Robin Lundstrum.
H.B. 1570 is critical legislation that is needed to protect children from abusive and permanently damaging “gender-reassignment surgeries.”
Will you please take a moment to speak up to your legislators? Here’s a message from Jerry Cox at Family Council with details on making your voice heard:
Please call your state senator and state representative right now, and urge them to override Governor Hutchinson’s veto of H.B. 1570, the SAFE Act by Rep. Robin Lundstrum and Sen. Alan Clark.
You can leave a message for your senator at 501-682-2902.
You can leave a message for your representative at 501-682-6211.
H.B. 1570, the SAFE Act, prohibits sex-reassignment procedures on children in Arkansas.
Gender-reassignment surgeries can leave children sterilized and scarred for life. Medical researchers do not know the long term effects these procedures and therapies can have on kids. That is why many people equate them with experimenting on children.
The Arkansas Legislature passed this bill, but on Monday Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoed it.
It is impossible to overstate how much pressure your lawmakers face from national groups on this bill.
Please contact your legislators right now — especially your state representative — and urge them to override the governor’s veto on H.B. 1570, the SAFE Act.
You can leave a message for your senator at 501-682-2902. You can leave a message for your representative at 501-682-6211.
Again, please urge your legislators to override Governor Hutchinson’s veto of H.B. 1570, the SAFE Act by Rep. Robin Lundstrum and Sen. Alan Clark.
Thank you so much for speaking up and for spreading the word about this urgent matter!
Florida Governor urged to sign HB 1411 bill into law.
The Florida Legislature passed HB 1411, a bill that cuts state funding to abortion facilities, including Planned Parenthood.
If signed into law, the money that would have gone to Planned Parenthood now goes to hundreds of deserving low-cost community health clinics and women’s health centers.
“Republicans in the Florida Legislature are to be commended,” said John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, “for showing leadership and for doing the right thing by passing this historic piece of legislation.”
The bill now goes to Gov. Rick Scott for his signature. If signed, Florida would join Texas, Utah, Kansas, New Hampshire, Alabama, Arkansas and Louisiana in defunding Planned Parenthood.
“On behalf of thousands of Floridians who object to their taxes going to fund Planned Parenthood,” Stemberger said, “I continue to urge Gov. Scott to sign this good bill into law.”
