The Case for Marriage
Throughout July, we’ve featured a series of posts on the Foundations blog titled, “Why Protect Marriage.” Here’s a recap of the posts:
- Why Protect Marriage
- Marriage and Civil Rights
- Reaction to New York
- The Key to Understanding the Fight for Marriage, a guest post from Alliance Defense Fund’s Legal Counsel, Dale Schowengerdt
Dale Schowengerdt went on Tom Brown’s new show on KPXQ, Koinonia, to discuss his post. Listen to it here and be sure to follow our blog for more in this series.
Now is not a time to grow weary or discouraged. Don’t listen to media reports or predictions from others that same sex “marriage” in New York means the debate is over. Now is the time to redouble our prayers and efforts to stand for marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
More Fallout from “Obamacare”
This week, the Department of Health and Human Services announced the latest from the nationalization of health care – the federal government will force virtually every employer to pay for emergency contraception in their employee healthcare plan. Emergency contraception can work to cause an abortion.
Along with the dangers this poses for the preborn and women, this mandate has severe implications for the rights of conscience of business owners. National Review Online writes about this decision will mean for you and me here, The Misguided Birth-Control Crusade Continues. The Heritage Foundation also provides some good insight in this article, HHS’s New Health Guidelines Trample on Conscience.
It’s That Time Once Again
Early voting has begun in four key Arizona city elections. These elections often are decided by less than 20% of the electorate. Values voters have a unique opportunity to impact city leadership by voting!
CAP’s Voter Guide website, azvoterguide.com, features survey results from Phoenix, Tucson, and Prescott. Be sure to check it out before you vote. If your town isn’t holding elections, you can still make a difference by making sure your friends and family are informed and turn out to vote.
If a candidate hasn’t responded, we’ve provided their email address and phone number so you can contact the candidate directly and ask them to answer the survey. You can also contact them on Facebook and Twitter. We’ve compiled a list of their usernames for your convenience. Yuma friends – note that no candidate for your city has responded!
The Ongoing Court Battles with Planned Parenthood
CAP continues to closely monitors two cases filed by Planned Parenthood challenging CAP-supported pro-life laws. On the Foundations blog, I posted two resources that explain our ongoing fight to enact key aspects of the Abortion Consent Act and abortion clinic regulations.
