First GOP Women to Serve on US Senate Judiciary Committee

 

US Senators Marsha Blackburn (TN) and Joni Ernst (IA) are reported to be new additions to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Pro-life women’s groups are hailing the appointments.  Blackburn, newly elected to the Senate after spending 16 years in the US House, is a fierce advocate for life.  Ernst, considered one of the most conservative senators, introduced legislation to defund Planned Parenthood.

Phyllis Schlafly: Heroine of the Conservative Cause

SUNACRW President Irene Harris, Eagle Forum Founder Phyllis Schlafley and Carolyn Conner, SUNACRW V.P. for Union County

PLC 2010 with the founding mother of modern conservatism, Phyllis Schlafly, who passed away this week at age 92 after serving her country for 70 years while raising 6 children with her late husband, Fred.  The lives she touched and inspired are countless, including the women of our council.  We honor her memory.

A loving pro-life response to Amy Brenneman

Last week actress Amy Brenneman, who filed a brief in opposition to abortion clinics in Texas being required to maintain basic health clinic standards, said she did not regret an abortion she had as a young woman.

Today we offer this link to an article containing the full text of a letter to Ms. Brenneman written by Congresswoman Diane Black -TN.  Rep. Black was a nurse for 40 years before being elected to Congress.  Her response is both bold and compassionate as her words remind us that women must survive to birth to have rights, and that their gender all too often condemns them to early death.

Human Trafficking

NFRW has taken on the task of educating women and equipping them to work to end the atrocity of human trafficking.  Today’s slave trade is mostly in support of the illicit sex industry.  Make no mistake, it continues and it’s all around you.  Ladies, it’s time to take our heads out of the sand and dig into the facts.  Let’s start with looking at ourselves and our communities.

Ice Bucket Challenge: Alternatives to funding ALSA

By now most everyone has heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge raising funds for the ALS Association.  Americans are a generous lot and they have gravitated to this fun effort.  However in the midst of the excitement a cruel fact has been uncovered; one which crosses ethical lines and jerks us from entertainment back to reality.  ALSA uses embryonic stem cells in its research efforts. 

So what is one to do?  Compassionate people certainly want improvements in the lives of ALS patients and look to the possibility of a cure.  But we also want a moral solution.  We are unwilling to say one person may be sacrificed for the potential good of another.  We are unwilling to accept that the most vulnerable among us are only worthwhile as research material.  Fortunately there are research options that do not compromise our principles.
