Family Policy Alliance and many other groups are urging the new administration to address sexual exploitation as they take office in January.
The group, which includes Paul Weber of Family Policy Alliance, Alan Sears of Alliance Defending Freedom and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, has penned a letter to help the new leadership understand that “America is suffering from a sexual exploitation crisis.”
They are asking that “through the presidential appointment process, presidential directives and policies,” the federal government address “the full spectrum of harm” being done to our society.
The letter will be sent to Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
House leadership will bring a pro-life conscience protection act to the floor for a vote Wednesday. S 304, the Conscience Protection Act (CPA), would stop the government from discriminating against those who do not wish to be forced to take part in abortion.
CPA is needed because the Department of Health and Human Services has refused to investigate violations of existing federal law that protects conscience.
“Conscience is about choice,” said David Christensen of the Family Research Council. “Health-care professionals should not be forced to engage in abortion against their will, and that includes churches and others who purchase health insurance. CPA is about basic fairness for everyone and is a key pro-life priority.”
