Advancing Liberty through Action

ISSUES


Sanctity of Human Life



Unprecedented movement is underway to protect pre-born life. The U.S. House has passed the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act". This lifesaving bill prohibits an abortion from being performed after 20 weeks or greater except in cases of rape, incest, or if the mother's life is in danger. This bill aligns with the will of 6 in 10 Americans who support a ban on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

The Senate has repeatedly failed to pass this life-saving legislation, because our tin-eared lawmakers are beholden to abortion giants like Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America. They are only hearing the loudest radicals voices. You can make an impact by contacting your senator about this important bill.


Religious Freedom


Civil liberties are God-given, inalienable and self-evident. Religious freedom predates civil government and the United States Constitution. The fight for religious freedom is a battle for the heart and soul of our nation. If we lose our religious freedom, then we have lost America to tyranny.

We are making progress. In 2018, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) established a Conscience and Religious Freedom Division within the Office for Civil Rights to specialize in the enforcement of and compliance with laws that protect conscience and free exercise of religion, and that prohibit coercion and discrimination. HHS is carrying out President Trump’s Executive Order on Free Speech and Religious Liberty and the Department of Justice’s Religious Liberty Guidance. In Executive Order 13798, he declared that “the Founders envisioned a Nation in which religious voices and views were integral to a vibrant public square, and in which religious people and institutions were free to practice their faith without fear of discrimination or retaliation by the Federal Government…and it will be “the policy of the executive branch to vigorously enforce Federal law's robust protections for religious freedom.” 


Marriage and Family



LCA advances policies that are good for marriage and the family. Society begins with marriage and the family. Marriage is the preeminent and the most fundamental of all human social institutions: A bond between one man and one woman, intended for life, and open to the gift of children. Children do best in a home with a mom and a dad. The institutions of civil government should defend marriage and not seek to undermine it.
