Your state Assembly member needs to hear from you! That’s because the New Jersey Assembly could be voting as soon as tomorrow on a bill that would legalize assisted suicide.
The bill (A1504) would allow doctors to prescribe a lethal dose of drugs to anyone who has been “qualified” to end their own life.
There is nothing in this measure that would prevent abuses from taking place. That puts the disabled and the elderly particularly at risk.
Please contact your Assembly member today and ask him or her to oppose assisted suicide (A1504). We’ve made it easy through our Action Center. You can make your voice heard in seconds, even if you don’t know your district or the name of your Assembly member.
Let them know that you believe every life is worth fighting for!
The Family Policy Alliance Team (in alliance with New Jersey Family Policy Council)
P.S. Please forward this message to family and friends so they can make their voice heard, too!
Your dedicated support has allowed Family Policy Alliance to track and analyze over 1,400 bills across the United States this legislative session. These bills impact families like yours on important issues like the sanctity of life, religious freedom and family values.
Over the 2017 legislative session, your gifts provided direct strategic support and analysis to 31 states on 114 bills. Of the 114 bills, 61 percent were “wins” for Family Policy Alliance and ministry partners like you. Only 24 percent went the wrong way, and the remaining 15 percent are still pending.
Specifically, you provided the resources that allowed Family Policy Alliance to support our state allies in efforts to:
- Defeat assisted suicide bills in 19 states, including in Kansas and Hawaii — where Compassion & Choices spent more than $1 million dollars to push the pro-death bill.
- Track 133 sexual orientation/ gender identity bills with only 5 becoming law. That’s a 95 percent win rate for your values!
- Strengthen religious freedom protections, particularly the right of individuals to be free from engaging in acts that violate their conscience. There were more than 70 religious freedom bills introduced this session in 27 states. North Dakota enacted a law that will allow students to voluntarily participate in prayer on school grounds. Texas and South Dakota enacted laws that provide religious exemptions for faith-based adoption and foster-care workers and placement agencies in the placement of children in foster and adoptive families.
- Protect preborn babies with 20-week abortion bans in Iowa, Kentucky, South Dakota and Tennessee.
Jayson started struggling with same-sex attractions after being abused as a child. Thankfully, he was able to get professional counseling and coaching that continues to help him align his life with the heartfelt convictions of his faith.
But now, the ACLU and their allies are working to ban such professional counseling for minors. They want to make counseling on sexual orientation a one-way street — toward homosexuality.
Family Policy Alliance is fighting these bans and supporting our freedoms in state after state.
“This fight is for vulnerable kids — just like I was at eight years old,” says Jayson. “Family Policy Alliance is uniquely positioned to win, with 40 state groups and proven strategies to mobilize citizens effectively. I encourage everyone who cares about protecting children and parents’ rights to support the work of Family Policy Alliance.”
