Friends,

Our allies at the Montana Family Foundation have alerted us that your quick action is needed on an important pro-life matter.

Senate Bill 354 (the Born Alive Infants Protection Act) was passed by both houses of the Montana legislature and has been transmitted to Gov. Steve Bullock for his signature. This bill would move the antiquated Montana infanticide ban into the 21st century.

The bill addresses and updates several issues in the current law that were not foreseen when it was originally passed years ago. Primarily, it places a penalty into the law for failing to render medical care to an infant surviving a botched abortion.

This is important to note because our Montana Family Foundation allies report that the bill is in danger of being vetoed because the governor claims it is redundant.

Please call Gov. Bullock at (406) 444-3111 and urge him to sign SB 354 because it will ensure that any infant born alive after a failed abortion must receive medical care.  He’s getting enormous pressure from Planned Parenthood and the ACLU to veto the bill.

Encourage him to do the right thing because, regardless of the circumstances, any infant born alive deserves protection and a chance to live.  SB 354 – the Born Alive Infant Protection Act – does just that.

Time is of the essence, so please call right now – (406) 444-3111.

Thank you!

Barronelle Stutzman, great grandmother and Washington State florist, was prosecuted and could lose everything, simply for declining to create custom flower arrangements for a same-sex wedding. A similar law is about to be voted on in Helena, and your action is needed.

Montana is neighborly and welcoming – a great place to raise a family and to live out your faith.

But now, some legislators are pushing a bill that would punish people for their ideas and beliefs. This is a battle that needs the attention of all Montanans. A vote is possible on Friday, so your action is needed today!

The bill (House Bill 465) is known as a SOGI law because it offers special protections for “sexual orientation and gender identity” classes.

Do you remember Jack Phillips? He is the Colorado baker who recently won a Supreme Court case, after being prosecuted under a SOGI law for declining to bake a cake celebrating a same-sex wedding.

Do you remember Barronelle Stutzman? She is the florist in Washington State (pictured above) who is also being prosecuted under SOGI laws for declining to provide flowers for a same-sex wedding. She, like Jack, is at grave risk of losing her home and business from fines and legal costs.

Over and over again, SOGI laws have been the leading tool used by the Left to attack religious freedom. And the gender identity component puts the privacy and safety of women and girls at risk by opening women’s bathrooms, showers, dressing rooms and other public accommodations to men.

This bill will be heard by the House Judiciary Committee on Friday morning. You can send a message to each of the committee members – urging them to vote NO – with just a click on our Action Center.

Please make your voice heard for freedom! Thanks for taking action and spreading the word!

Eli had been old enough to vote for several years, but because he felt unsure about the issues and candidates, he never registered or took part in elections.

But after Eli attended an event with our president Paul Weber, he made a decision: He voted in a mid-term election. And now he’s teaching his students the importance of engaging.

Join us in our efforts to motivate pro-family voters.

Family Policy Alliance is proud to work alongside Jeff Laszloffy and the Montana Family Foundation, one of our 40 state-based allies with whom we collaborate to elect pro-family statesmen and to advance pro-family policy.

You’ve heard of “wrongful death” lawsuits. Well, a Montana couple actually filed a “wrongful birth” lawsuit with ominous implications for life and for healthcare. That’s when the Montana Family Foundation jumped into action.

A Montana court says the state cannot exclude private, religious schools from a state education tax credit.

Jeff Laszloffy, president of Montana Family Foundation, explains why it’s a good decision for families as well as Christian schools. And what other states can learn from the legislation.

Moving closer to the edge of the cliff

2016 will be a critical year for your family and your faith. In so many ways, our nation is moving ever closer to the edge of the cliff – a cultural, political and spiritual cliff.

As followers of Christ, it’s our duty to trust in our Lord, remain faithful and engage in our system of government – to ensure pro-family Americans seize the opportunity to back away from that cliff. We need to band together with like-minded believers to protect our loved ones, our religious freedom and the sanctity of life – for ourselves and our families. We can do that in legislatures across the country and at the ballot box throughout the year.

Eli is a Christian school teacher who had never voted. Never, that is, until he attended an event sponsored by the Montana Family Foundation. He heard CitizenLink’s President and CEO Paul Weber talk about the importance of “unleashing biblical citizenship.” Now Eli is a registered voter!
