| The Democrat Party: Abortion at All Costs | . Gone are the days of the Democratic Party viewing abortion as “safe, legal, and rare.” Today’s Democrats promote abortion on demand (for any reason), late-term abortion, infanticide, and seek to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which currently prohibits direct, tax-payer funding of abortion. .

| On The Fighting Side of Life | On January 22, 2019, the 46th anniversary of #RoevWade, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the Reproductive Health Act, one of the most radical late-term abortion laws in the nation. A few days later when asked about a similar bill proposed in the Virginia House of Delegates, Governor Ralph Northam went a step further by advocating for #infanticide. The actions in NY and Virginia have since spawned a domino effect throughout the nation, with liberal politicians in several other states proposing their own radical #abortion bills. Responding to the mad rush to legalize late-term abortion and infanticide, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a bill designed to protect babies born alive from botched abortions. Sadly, when this legislation came up for a vote in the Senate last week, 44 Democrats voted against it. Furthermore, Democrats have blocked 11 requests for unanimous consent on this legislation, 10 times in the House of Representatives and once in the Senate. The second vote in the Senate last week was to end debate on the bill and force a vote. Despite these setbacks, we're fortunate to have many members of Congress willing to fight for life, no matter the political repercussions. Last week, Congresswoman @MarthaRoby (R-Ala.) stopped by our Washington, D.C. headquarters to discuss how she and her colleagues in the House and Senate are standing up to the radical abortion agenda. In addition to the #BornAliveAct, Congresswoman Roby has cosponsored several other pieces of pro-life legislation including the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the Life at Conception Act, the Heartbeat Protection Act, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act, and the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act. Declaring her intent to fight for life, Congresswoman Roby stated unequivocally: “I will continue to use my platform in Congress to serve as a vocal advocate for the unborn.” In the midst of the rush to deny innocent babies the right to life, it is refreshing to see so many in Congress working hard to pass #prolife legislation.

| Tried... and True Blue! | If there were ever a time America needed staunch, conservative leaders, it's now! After a horrifying few weeks, the late-term abortion debate is reminding everyone how important it is to have men and women in Congress who stand for the values of America. Yesterday, @FRCdc and FRC Action had a chance to honor 276 of them at our annual True Blue awards reception. For a lot of Republicans, it was a celebration of two important years. The 115th Congress had the benefit of working with one of the most conservative presidents in history. And they had plenty to show for it, especially on the issues that matter most. From votes on the Obamacare mandate to the first round of votes on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, almost 50 senators and more than 230 members showed off their pro-life, pro-family bona fides -- scoring a perfect 100 percent on FRC Scorecard. At yesterday's breakfast, we had a packed room of pro-family leaders from both chambers, including House leaders Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who both took time out of their busy schedule to thank FRC Action for its support -- and yours. We also had the opportunity to catch up with @senatorlankford, @stevedaines, @johnboozman, John Kennedy (R-La.), @sencindyhydesmith, @senatorenzi, @sen_dansullivan, @senatorkevincramer, and @senrobportman. In one of the more moving moments of the event, we sent each member home with a newborn baby hat from our End Birth Day Abortion campaign. Some leaders got emotional just looking at the tiny pink and blue stripes, remembering their own children and what a travesty it is that anyone would see those innocent lives as anything but precious. For all of these pro-lifers, it will be a powerful reminder of exactly what -- and who -- they're fighting for. To see how your congressman voted, visit frcaction.org and look for the scorecard. Then, when you get a minute, let them know how much you appreciate their commitment to faith, family, and freedom! . . . . #TrueBlueAward #TrueBlue #115thCongress
In America, nearly three out of five young people have walked away from the church, while atheism has doubled among teenagers. How can the church counteract this trend of young adult disengagement? Instead of just trying to stop young people from leaving, the church can empower young people to start leading. If young people see the church as an outlet for their gifts and as a place of personal growth, their loyalty will deepen. Keeping young people in the pews is admirable, but equipping them for active service is transformational. Here are three ways to cultivate and equip the faith of young people: 1. Prayer Firstly, church members can continually pray for the young people in their congregation, both those who attend and those who have recently gone to college or joined the workforce. By interceding for young people, church members can fight against the spiritual forces of darkness facing these young people, especially in today’s post-Christian culture. As believers pray, God offers guidance, paving the way for stronger relationships between church members and young Christians. 2. Mentoring Relationships between older and younger Christians can bear significant fruit. By inviting a young person to walk alongside them, a mentor models Christlike behavior and offers their mentee critical friendship and wisdom. 3. Apologetics Training To promote lasting church loyalty, Christians can support young people through prayer and mentoring relationships. Apologetics training can also strengthen the next generation’s ties to the church. When young people learn the rational basis of their faith, and when they grasp the connections between the Bible and the issues facing our culture today, their confidence in Christianity grows and solidifies. Prayer, mentoring relationships, and apologetics training all enable young people to grow in maturity and confidence. This confidence not only lays the foundations for continued church attendance, it produces proactive service and leadership that will benefit the church for decades to come.

What's happened to our nation when the president has to ask legislators to save babies from being murdered? Too often, the issue of abortion has been reduced to a political issue. Very little thought has gone into the coarsening of America's collective conscience, which has brought us to this point today -- where leaders not only look away, but advocate and defend infanticide. Fortunately, what we've seen in the last few weeks is that the hardening of our country's heart hasn't extended much beyond the party's leaders and militant abortion activists. When @americansunitedforlife and @YouGovus put the Democrats' infanticide agenda before the public, Americans were universally horrified. Large majorities in the country already objected to third-trimester abortions (79%) and birth day abortions (80%) -- but it was tough to find anyone who thought leaving newborns on a metal table to die was just another personal decision between a woman and her doctor. On the question of legal infanticide, 82% said absolutely not. If those numbers don't make Democrats cringe, maybe these will. Of pro-choicers, 77% agree with the Republicans' push to protect abortion survivors. Another 66% aren't on board with abortions in the third trimester, and 68% disagree with any law that destroy a baby on its due date. Throw in the taxpayer-funded part of these procedures -- another piece of the Democratic platform -- and the Left's abortion agenda is a one-way ticket back to the political minority. If you think I'm exaggerating, look at Governor Andrew Cuomo's (D-N.Y.) most recent approval ratings. After eight years of high marks, the bottom is falling out for the man who made the disastrous decision to put New Yorkers at the tip of the pink spear. Cuomo's favorability rating has taken a beating, dropping to 43% from 50 -- the lowest ever recorded since he took office in 2011. Contrast that with President Trump, who, after doubling down on the culture of life, is enjoying the highest approval rating (52%) since 2017. One man embraced the outer limits of abortion extremism. The other used his most important speech of the year to passionately reject it. You do the math.

| Dem Platform Shoos Away Younger Voters on Abortion | Most people -- the media included -- assume the under-34 crowd is in the Left's back pocket. But a new survey from @StudentsforLife of America shows what a mistake that assumption has been. . In a poll that should scare the daylights out of the Democratic Party, only seven percent of the 18-34 crowd agree with the DNC's national platform on abortion -- which is no legal limits and funded by taxpayer dollars. . Another seven in 10 support restrictions on abortion, with 42 percent opposing abortion broadly. That'll come as a shock to the Democrats' system, which is betting most of its credibility on a surprisingly pro-life age group. Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life, thinks this poll ought to be a wake-up call to any liberal taking the millennial vote for granted. Obviously, she said, labels like pro-life, pro-choice, access, health, or women's rights often camouflage the true realities of the policies that today crisscross the country. Just because some young people call themselves pro-choice doesn't mean they're anti-regulation. . That's especially bad news for liberals, who've spent the better part of a decade fighting common sense restrictions on abortion. According to the Marist poll, people of every age think abortion does more harm than good. Seventy-four percent of Americans -- including 54 percent who identify as 'pro-choice' -- are in favor of 'significant restrictions' on abortion. And that crosses every racial, gender, and political line. . Young people also had a surprisingly unfavorable view of Planned Parenthood. By about a 3 to 1 margin (48 percent to 17 percent), millennials said they preferred that their tax monies went to Federally Qualified Health Centers rather than the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood. Democrats are losing their grip on this demographic -- and soon. If there is a future for the party, one thing's for sure: they'd better rethink their abortion platform.
