DOWN WITH THE CONSTITUTION?

Richmond has kept busy with undoing laws that protect the Constitution, sanctity of life, family, parental rights and positive moral values. Its latest ploy is to introduce a bill (HB177) called “The National Popular Vote Compact” (see Virginia Democrats advance bill to join National Popular Vote compact (washingtontimes.com/)

The Compact is an agreement among states that have joined together to award their Electoral College votes to the candidate who wins the national popular vote. Remember that in 2016 Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, while Donald Trump won the electoral college vote.

In essence, the Compact is a way for dissenters to go around the Constitution without bringing such an issue before the people for a vote. Our power as voters is being usurped by the very legislators we voted into office a few short months ago!

Folks, we are in the throes of making history of the worst kind. Someday our children will point back to this time in our nation’s history as the final takedown of our republic—unless we contact our Delegates in Richmond and voice our disapproval loudly. They’ll vote on the measure soon, so go to Who is my legislator and let your voice be heard by your Delegate today! Once it’s too late, it’s too late to go back!! The fate of our republic is at stake!

IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TAUGHT?

It is about protecting children.

The Washington Times published this article on its front page yesterday, Disputed NY Times ‘1619 Project’ already shaping schoolkids’ minds on race (washingtontimes.com). Here is how that article starts online.

Despite top historians decrying what they call its falsehoods and distortions, a race-conscious New York Times rewrite of American history is being adopted in classrooms across the country, John Murawski reports for RealClearInvestigations. The 1619 Project is teaching tens of thousands of American schoolchildren that the United States was founded not in liberty in 1776 but in the bondage of slaves arriving in Virginia in 1619.

Read the full story HERE

The Washington Times republished an article from RealClear Investigations. In other words, The Washington Times thought this story is important and that you would give it your attention.

Consider. You have children or grandchildren in the public school system? Do you know:

  • Who decides who will teach your children?
  • Who decides what your children will be taught?
  • What the curriculum review process looks like?
  • How much the educational content in the public school system is already biased one way or the other?
  • What can you do to influence who teaches your children and what they are taught?

Think about how the public school system works. We give politicians our money, cross our fingers, and we hope for the best. Don’t think it works that way? Think we can hold those guys accountable? How? We have put four levels of government in charge of the public schools: our school board, our local government, our state government, and the Federal Government. When there is a problem, we have trouble just figuring out who to blame. How do we hold anyone accountable if we don’t know who is to blame?

Because we have given our leaders our money without any strings attached, our leader feel more accountable to their campaign donors than they do to parents. Therefore, parents have a very difficult time keeping their children from being taught beliefs they find abominable.

ABORTION BILLS

Here is the content of an email that Students for Life sent out to their supporters.  Hope you find the information packet they put together helpful.

From: Kristan from Students for Life Action
Date sent 01/31/2020 11:01:16 am
Subject: please call today

XXXXXXX,

Please read the following message from Students for Life Action…

As you’ve probably seen by now, pro-abortion Democrats are working hard in Richmond to try to repeal important protections for preborn babies, moms, and families. Will you take five minutes today to help us stop them?

Making your voice heard is not difficult, but it can have a tremendous impact.

First, look up your state delegate and state senator HERE. Since this legislation would affect all of us, you should contact as many elected officials as you can.

Second, call the phone number of their district office AND their Richmond office and tell them you are a Virginia resident and would like to oppose the legislation (summaries below) and that you always vote pro-life first.

Third, please share the legislative summaries below on social media and with your friends and family. Legislative staff, the people who answer the phones and read constituent letters, say that elected officials can be swayed by a public outcry for or against legislation.

Here are the worst pieces of pro-abortion legislation you should be aware of:

S.J. 2 would amend the Virginia Constitution to say that every one has a right to an abortion. Although the legislation has been delayed until next year, we must keep speaking out against it so it never comes up for a vote. S.B. 635 is a similar bill and legislators should be urged to vote no.

S.B. 21 and S.B. 68 would remove important informed consent protections, including showing the woman an ultrasound before an abortion, a 24-hour waiting period to ensure that no one is rushing into a decision, and parental consent, which ensures that a teenage girl’s parents are involved and able to counsel her and support her in choosing life.

There is some good news though! We need your help supporting S.B. 501, Students for Life Action’s legislation to improve the foster care system in Virginia by speeding up the home study and background check process. Please ask your representatives to vote YES on S.B. 501 to ensure that parents that want to foster and adopt can be quickly approved in a safe manner. You can read about our statements of support here.

Students and staff have been working hard in Virginia to support the preborn and we would really appreciate your help.

Remember to stay calm and polite when calling. Oftentimes you will be speaking to legislative staff or interns who will be taking down what you said.

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Sincerely,

Kristan Hawkins
President, Students for Life Action
