Here is how we reclaim hope: We look at the whole picture, not at just what we feel… and we look at the facts of history.
States considering termination of Medicaid Provider Agreements with Planned Parenthood are well within their legal rights. They are not required to qualify providers that are under investigation, that violate federal or state law or that act unethically. Indeed, according to the HHS Office of Inspector General, more than 9,000 providers have been excluded as Medicaid providers over the last two decades.
Ten years of advocacy, fighting for life, marriage, family and liberty
“This violent and horrifying act by someone who has a troubling and violent past, is in complete opposition to the pro-life cause,” said John Stemberger, President of the Florida Family Policy Council. “We believe that we must continue promoting the pro-life message and reiterate the concern we have for every human life including the victims of this tragedy.
Today, the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC) announced that a movement of pro-life Floridians, represented and led by FFPC President John Stemberger and co-sponsored by the Students for Life’s Defund Planned Parenthood Bus Tour will hold a major rally at the Florida State Capitol.
Three Florida cities are being confronted with proposed changes in local and county ordinances to include “non-discrimination” language (Sexual Orientation Gender Identity [SOGI] language) which create legal weapons to punish Christians who are simply living out their faith in their businesses and use of private property. Many of these SOGI laws also involve a gross invasion of privacy and create safety and security issues by allowing fully biological men to use women’s bathrooms. Don’t be fooled by smooth sounding names like “Human Rights Ordinances,” “Equal Rights Ordinances” and the latest deceptive name, the “Competitive Workforce Act.” Adding totally subjective terms like sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression to legitimate non-discrimination statutes directly undermines our First Amendment rights of religious liberty, free speech and freedom of association.

The pro-life community in the State of Florida is growing increasingly frustrated with Governor Rick Scott’s excuses for refusing to stop state taxpayer money from flowing to Planned Parenthood and are demanding he do so immediately.
The job of any Governor is to enforce the law, and we appreciate Governor Scott for doing that. Yet any Governor, regardless of whether they are pro-life or pro-abortion, should enforce the law and hold people accountable for violating it.
Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr is one of the brightest Christian voices alive today. He would likely cringe at hearing this, but it’s true. Even Time Magazine has called him the “reigning intellectual of the evangelical movement in the U.S.”
