Family Policy Network A recent study shows that 53 million abortions have been performed in America since 1973. However, that figure does NOT include the countless millions of unborn lives that have been extinguished as a result of chemical abortions occurring due to the birth control pill or the morning-after pill. The total number of abortions is probably in the hundreds of millions. Read FPN’s policy paper on the morning-after pill:



REASON 1: Because the MAP destroys tiny human lives Even though the primary purpose of the MAP is to prevent conception by preventing ovulation, a secondary effect of the drug is to prevent an already-fertilized egg from attaching itself to the uterine wall. This secondary effect constitutes an abor

Family Policy Network A recent letter to the editor published in a Virginia newspaper takes issue with a so-called “gay-straight alliance” formed at a local school. The citizen author points out that recent stories on “gay bullying” provide openings for pro-homosexual groups like the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) to infiltrate schools under the guise of fostering tolerance among students.

However, groups like GLSEN are far less concerned with so-called “tolerance” than they are with encouraging young minds to experiment with deadly and sinful homosexual acts. They are not nearly as concerned with the problem of bullying as they are with ensuring that their student (whether homosexual or heterosexual) members are brainwashed into the belief that homosexual practice is totally healthy and normal. As the letter’s author rightly points out, “the issues of “bullying” and “safe schools” have provided those who seek
to normalize and promote homosexuality a way to infiltrate our schools.” Read the excellent letter to the editor here:

Family Policy Network Are you in the fight against breast cancer? Have you ever supported breast cancer cure organizations like the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation?

Part of the money you donate to the Susan G. Komen fund goes to fund Planned Parenthood. That’s right. An organization supposedly devoted to prolonging life is funding an organization whose main business is to slaughter life. This is a cause for great concern for any Christian who has donated to Susan G. Komen. A portion of those dollars is going to fund the largest abortion provider on the planet. So next time you consider donating to a group that says they’re dedicated to preserving women’s lives, be sure they aren’t using your money to bankroll a group dedicated to ending tiny women’s (and men’s) lives.

Family Policy Network Rep. Mike Pence is urging his congressional colleagues against a neglect of social issues. Various public figures have called for the new Republican congress to have a “moratorium” on issues like abortion and gay marriage in order to concentrate solely on economic issues.

This would be extremely unwise. Many of the conservatives who voted in this month’s election are concerned about the economy, but they’re not sweeping their conservative social positions under the rug. Now is the time for the new US Congress to make bold moves to protect life and marriage in this country.

Family Policy Network Homosexual activists and their supporters are still determined to force open homosexuality on America’s armed forces. Sources indicate that the Senate will try to repeal the long-standing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy that keeps homosexual servicemembers from openly flaunting their actions. Senate Democrats will surely try to repeal DADT during the lame-duck session, that is, the time between the November 2nd election and January 3rd of 2011 when the new Congress is sworn in.

The article below points out several pro-homosexual GOP senators who may try to enable the repeal of DADT.

Michael Fletcher I spent four college years in Kentucky near Lexington and I visit the area frequently. That view of the city is distorted at best. Local zoning could control a lot of that. For example, Lexington is just north of Jessamine County. Jessamine remains a dry county. And anyone who would assert that private liquor stores are the only (or main) reason there are undesierable sections in a town hasn’t spent much time in Richmond. November 18 at 12:34pm

Casey Murray Kentucky allows their localities to vote on their own liquor regulations. And while Lexington is in a wet county it should be pointed out that there are actually more dry counties in KY than wet counties… why didn’t they choose a city in one of the more numerous dry counties for their “Investigative” Report? I think it’s obvious that Lexington was chosen to meet someone’s bias agenda rather than making an honest report.

Also my understanding of McDonnell’s plan (which I think was very poorly done) was that there would actually be fewer places selling liquor after the privatization than there are under our current government run monopoly. November 19 at 9:23am

Family Policy Network North Carolina is the only state in the Southeast without a marriage amendment. This was largely because of the Democrat-dominated state legislature, which, after this year’s elections is now controlled by Republicans.

Social conservatives are hoping that the new leadership in the legislature will make efforts to enshrine a one-man, one-woman marriage amendment into the state’s constitution. But any marriage amendment won’t do. There must be strong language that protects not only the word “marriage,” but also the institution of marriage by prohibiting marriage impostors like civil unions and domestic partnerships. Too many states have passed weak amendments that subsequently allow homosexual activists to undermine the institution of marriage by assigning the rights and benefits of marriage to other “unions.”

Family Policy Network Hawaii, which passed a marriage amendment in 1998, is poised to allow homosexual civil unions. Hawaii’s amendment only protects the word “marriage.” That’s why homosexual civil unions, which have most of the same benefits and privileges of marriage, may soon be allowed in the state.

The quote above is from Dr. John Piper. Here’s why FPN posted it:

Most Americans are offended and horrified at the actions of what “a small group of racists” did under the cover of white hoods and the darkness of night. How much more offended should Americans be at a multi-million dollar child-killing conglomerate that operates in white lab coats and broad daylight?!

Dr. Piper was trying to point out disconnect we make between the awful injustices committed against black people by the KKK and those committed by Planned Parenthood. BOTH groups are a scourge on American history.

Family Policy Network In an audacious display of disdain for life, many women on Twitter took their pro-abortion activism to a new level last week by tweeting about their abortion(s). The effort caused the hashtag #ihadanabortion to become a trending topic on Twitter for a time.Not only is the episode a case study in the desensitization of our culture, it is a testament to Scripture’s teaching regarding sin’s power to blind people. Though each and every one of these women knows abortion is wrong, they suppress the truth, choosing instead to glory in shame. According to Romans 1, “though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things
deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who
practice them.”
