On the eve of the 43rd anniversary of legalized abortion in the United States, the California Assembly passed a new resolution praising abortion rights and the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. Former Assembly speaker Toni Atkins introduced House Resolution (HR) 32 earlier this month, which reads in part:
“Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, that the Assembly urges the President of the United States and the United States Congress to express their support for a woman’s fundamental right to control her own reproductive decisions, as well as their support for access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including the services provided by Planned Parenthood …” READ MORE
Despite a looming veto threat from President Obama, last week brought a historic victory for pro-life advocates in their efforts to defund Planned Parenthood’s abortion business.
On Thursday, the U.S. Senate passed to H.R. 3762 in an effort to redirect as much as 89 percent of federal funding away from Planned Parenthood and toward to community health centers. The federal reconciliation bill narrowly escaped the U.S. Senate by a vote of 52-47. READ MORE
November 27 was truly a “Black Friday,” and not because of desperate retailers and shoppers. A crazed gunman in Colorado Springs killed three and injured nine during a standoff inside a Planned Parenthood abortion center.
Pro-lifers across the country immediately condemned the barbaric act as being the antithesis of the movement’s goals. READ MORE
One of the more famous mantras of the liberal left has been to paint Republicans as the party of “no.” The same, however, could be said of California’s Democrat caucus, which routinely thwarts conservative efforts to support sound pro-family policy.
For instance, of the 19 “good” bills California Family Alliance designated as vital to our three pillars—life, family and religious freedom—only one was signed into law. READ MORE
California Family Alliance (CFA) is a not-for-profit, political action organization that works in affiliation with California Family Council. CFA’s purpose is to advocate for pro-family, pro-life issues at the grassroots and legislative levels.
Because of our advocacy for and against legislative bills, ballot measures and cultural issues, CFA is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(4) organization. This IRS status means that contributions to CFA are not tax-deductible. We rely on the gifts of families and individuals who believe California’s public policies must be researched, analyzed and communicated to the state’s citizens, in order to motivate participation in the process of government.
Similar to California Family Council, CFA limits its involvement to matters that affect innocent life, religious liberty, and the historic, traditional family, such as:
• Embryonic stem cell research
• Physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia
• Human trafficking and child protection
• Parental authority
• Educational curricula
• Alternative sexual orientation “rights”
• Same-sex “marriage”
• Rights of conscience and employment laws
• Adoption and foster care
• Fiscal responsibility
• Divorce and its consequences
