On Thursday’s edition of “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins” FRC’s Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, Peter Sprigg is here to discuss his testimony earlier this week before the Idaho House of Representatives State Affairs Committee, urging members to oppose House Bill No. 2. This bill would have created special rights based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Today we learned that the bill failed by a 13-4 margin. Also, Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) joins Tony to highlight his legislation, H.R. 181, the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015. Congress has set their sights on ending sex trafficking in the U.S. and bills like this move us in the right direction.

Support the 'Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act'

I want to encourage you to contact your Representative and urge them to support passage of the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" (H.R. 36) sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.)and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn).This legislation is essential to stopping late abortion. It would also help stop so-called doctors, like the now imprisoned Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who are willing to allow babies be born alive to more easily kill them if the abortion doesn't work. Tragically, this problem goes way beyond Gosnell in Philadelphia.

Lila Rose’s undercover video in 2013 showed a doctor in the District of Columbia claiming “Let’s say you went into labor, the membranes ruptured, and you delivered before we got to the termination part of the procedure here, you know? Then we would do things – we would – we would not help it. We wouldn’t intubate.”

Medical experts have testified that unborn children can feel pain as early as 20 weeks after fertilization, which is about 4 and a half months. You can download FRC's pamphlet "Fetal Pain: Can Unborn Children Feel Pain in the Womb?"explaining more detail about the pain unborn children ... (more)

Abortion 2015: Caution, Diligence, and Faithfulness

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Canon and Culture on January 23, 2015. The theological basis for asserting personhood at conception has been articulated at great length. Given that one of the Enemy’s central delights is murder (John 8:44), the defense of human life is altogether fitting and proper for Christians at a time when, minimally, 2,700 unborn children lose their lives each day within America’s borders. The Bible teaches that all persons are created by ... (more)

Federal Judges Get a Taste of 'Judge Moore' Justice on Marriage

by Tony Perkins

Tony Perkins is President of Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Christian Post on January 28, 2015. Federal judges may have the last word on marriage -- but they won't have the final one. That's becoming abundantly clear in Alabama, the latest state to feel the sting of a runaway court invalidating the will of the people on marriage. In a letter to Governor Robert Bentley (R-Ala.), Chief Justice Roy Moore made that quite clear -- explaining that this isn't an issue that the federal courts will resolve. Rather, he said, ...

There are, as well, many other significant events associated with this beautiful and classically proportioned Capitol, America's oldest continuously ... (more)
