Dear Friends:

While the news has been consumed by coverage of the COVID-19 epidemic and we have all started to notice the lack of some goods in our stores, there are many other vital issues that still need our attention.

One of those is Senate File 97–Born Alive Infant–Means of Care legislation. This is the bill many of you called, wrote or personally drove to the Legislature to support.

Tomorrow is the deadline for the Governor to sign the bill. I am asking you to write an email or call the Governor and politely ask him to sign Senate File 97 into law. Simply click here and you can send him a message in 30 seconds.

After you have sent the message through our Action Center, please forward or share this message with other pro-life family members and friends in your area. It is important that Governor Gordon hear from as many people as possible. Time is of the essence.

Thank you for making your voice heard and for standing for the unborn children of Wyoming.

Sincerely,

Nathan Winters
Executive Director

Dear Friends:

The 2020 Legislative Session just drew to a close and it was an exciting year for the Inaugural Session for the new Family Policy Alliance of Wyoming!

At about 6:30 PM, after a full day in the legislature, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a Born Alive Infant Protection Act (SF 97) by a margin of 44-16!

This bill, if signed by the Governor, will prohibit doctors from allowing babies to die if they’re born alive after a botched abortion. Born Alive requires that doctors must provide the same life-saving medical care as they would for any other infant.

In addition to Born Alive passing, legislation was also passed that would prohibit the University of Wyoming from funding elective abortions. Governor Gordon has approved this effort and thankfully it is now law!

We’re proud of the Wyoming Legislature and Governor Gordon for showing that they believe in the dignity of human life.

But we still need the Governor to sign the Born Alive Infant Protection Act! Please politely encourage Governor Gordon to sign Born Alive (SF 97) into law by clicking here! Our easy action message will also thank him for approving the prohibition of elective abortions by the University of Wyoming.

After you have sent the message through our Action Center, please forward or share this message with other pro-life family members and friends in your area. It is important that Governor Gordon hear from as many people as possible.

Finally, if your State Senator and Representative supported these bills, please let them know how much you appreciate them. In Wyoming, we have the privilege of being represented by our friends and neighbors, we can get to know them personally. I encourage you to get to know your Legislators. Consider inviting them for coffee and find out how you can pray for them and bear their burdens with them (Galatians 6:2).

We know we can make a difference in Wyoming because we just saw what God did through you over this past month!

Thank you for making your voice heard and for standing for the unborn children of Wyoming.

Sincerely,

The Family Policy Alliance of Wyoming Team

Dear Friends:

In case you haven’t heard the good news, Senate File 97, Born Alive Infant-Means of Care, passed the Wyoming Senate by a vote of 23-7. Now it goes to the House of Representatives, where your voice of support is needed!

This bill is a small but very important change in the Wyoming statutes, providing greater clarity on preserving the lives of infants who have survived an attempted abortion. It ensures that they will be shown the dignity and care that all mankind should be treated with when struggling for their lives.

Standing for the Human Dignity of infants born alive is really a stand for the Human Dignity of all. When an infant is born, there should be a bipartisan recognition that this vulnerable human should be given, as the bill states, “medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of the infant born alive.”

During Senate testimony last week, several young ladies drove over from the University of Wyoming and gave powerful testimony in support of the bill and impacted the senators with their testimonies. While a few hardline abortionists came to express their opposition to the bill, they were FAR outnumbered by a chamber packed with supporters of this common-sense life-affirming bill. In her closing remarks, Senator Cheri Steinmetz, the sponsor of the bill, asked for those in support of the bill to stand, and almost the entire room stood representing the overwhelming support from across Wyoming for the Human Dignity of infants.

It is now time to alert your State Representative about how you feel about this important piece of legislation. Simply click here and you can send him or her a message in 30 seconds.

After you have sent the message through our Action Center, please forward or share this message with other pro-life family members and friends in your area. It is important that the Wyoming Senate hear from as many people as possible.

Thank you for making your voice heard and for standing for the unborn children of Wyoming.

We’re a little over halfway through the 2020 legislative session and Friday was the point in the session called “crossover.” Crossover marks the part of the session when bills that made it through the chamber they originated in “cross-over” to the other chamber (i.e. from the Senate to the House of Representatives or vice versa). This means an intense sprint took place to introduce and shepherd legislation through the process in what is the shortest legislative session in the nation.

In the midst of the “mad-dash” of a Wyoming Budget session, several victories happened, and I wanted to take this opportunity to share them with you.

Over the past few weeks, it has brought me such joy to see a tremendous coalition of partners from across the state develop in support of these efforts! Folks from across the state emailed, called and some have even driven through snow to testify in committee.

While we are thrilled with the progress these bills have made, they are only halfway through the process. We will be reaching out to you over the next two weeks to contact your legislators through our Action Center and encourage them to stand for life.

It is evident that Wyoming has thousands of people like you who want a state where life is cherished, religious freedom flourishes, and families thrive. Let’s continue to advance the cause of Biblical Citizenship!

Sincerely,

Nathan Winters
Advocacy Director

Tomorrow morning, a State Senate committee will be considering one of the most important bills in the 2020 Wyoming legislation session.

SF 97, sponsored by Senator Cheri Steinmetz, is a common-sense bill that would protect babies who survive an attempted abortion.

No one would have dreamed that a situation so calloused as “leaving a baby in a dirty mop closet” (testimony of one nurse last year) would be a reality in our nation. But we have seen the statements of some, such as Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, become mainstream among some in our country today. Indeed, hundreds of such cases have been documented around the country.

Family Policy Alliance of Wyoming believes that every child deserves equal protection under the law!

Your voice is needed! You can quickly send a message to each of the senators on the committee by clicking here. Just add your own subject line and send.

Then please share this with others right away so you can multiply your impact.

Thank you for making your voice heard for life!

For life,

Nathan Winters
