WASHINGTON, D.C. - By a vote of 224-206, the U.S. House of Representatives gave approval to H.R. 5, the deceptively titled "Equality Act."...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council today released its analysis of Planned Parenthood's 2019-2020 (fiscal year 2019) annual report. The analysis, titled "The Real Planned Parenthood: Leading the Culture of Death," incontrovertibly reveals that abortion is not a small part of Planned Parenthood's mission --- performing 354,871 abortions in the 2019 fiscal year....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote Thursday on H.R. 5, deceptively titled "The Equality Act." When it was introduced last week, the bill had 223 Democratic co-sponsors and no Republican co-sponsors. Several Republicans who cosponsored the bill in 2019 have declined to cosponsor this year's reintroduction of the bill. Family Research Council released a new issue brief today, "How the 'Equality Act' Is Actually Unequal, Unfair, and Unjust."...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council responded today to the White House giving support to H.R. 5, deceptively titled "The Equality Act," which was introduced yesterday in the U.S. House of Representatives and is scheduled for a vote next week....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - On Wednesday, February 10, at 7:30 PM ET, Family Research President Tony Perkins, along with Pastor Gary Hamrick and Alliance Defending Freedom's Mike Farris, will host "Pray Vote Stand Townhall: The Way Forward," an interactive, in-person event at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, Va., that will be live streamed on PrayVoteStand.org. ...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Mary Szoch, Director of the Center for Human Dignity at Family Research Council, submitted testimony on a bill (SB 835) in the Connecticut Senate that would unfairly target pro-life pregnancy centers under the guise of restricting deceptive advertising....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Democratic President Joe Biden, among his first official acts, today rescinded the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Policy (PLGHA), which prevents federal funds from going to foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that perform abortions or "actively promote" abortion as a method of family planning in other countries....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Joe Biden, in one of his first official acts, reinstated President Obama's military transgender policy. The president did so without any kind of systematic study of the consequences of allowing men and women in the military to live as the opposite sex and even obtain gender reassignment procedures paid for by the military. This stands in stark contrast to the DoD review that was conducted of President Trump's policy. The Department of Defense reported that medical costs for service members with "gender dysphoria" were three times higher than for other service members before the Trump administration repealed the Obama era rule....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo today announced the determination that the "People's Republic of China is committing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, China, targeting Uyghur Muslims and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups."...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council issued a statement warning one of President Biden's first executive orders would target people of faith and religious organizations. The executive order demands that all federal agencies redefine "sex" to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" in their policies against sex discrimination. The order expands upon the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County, which redefined "sex" in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council (FRC) today applauded the U.S. State Department for adding Nigeria to its list of "Countries of Particular Concern" (CPCs) for the first time. A CPC designation is given by the U.S. Secretary of State to a nation whose government is engaged in or tolerates severe violations of religious freedom under the International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA) of 1998....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Tomorrow House Democrats will hold a hearing before the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee in order to attack and undermine the Hyde Amendment. The Hyde Amendment prevents tax dollars from being used to pay for abortions and has been included in every federal spending bill since 1976, saving an estimated 2.4 million unborn lives. Family Research Council today published an issue analysis titled "Taxpayer Funding of Abortion and Abortion Businesses" which makes clear just how our taxpayer dollars prop up the abortion industry and what can be done to stop it. Over 60 percent of Americans, including 35 percent of Democrats, oppose taxpayer funding of abortions....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council (FRC) is pleased to announce that Mary Szoch has joined the FRC team as Director of the Center for Human Dignity, where her work will focus on advancing a culture of life and developing policies upholding human dignity. ...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council (FRC) today praised the recent decision by a federal appeals court striking down two local ordinances banning sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE) for minors. In the case of Otto v. City of Boca Raton, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit ruled on November 20 that "these ordinances are content-based and viewpoint-based restrictions on speech," and thus "violate the First Amendment." ...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council on Thursday released the updated publication, "Criminalizing Conscience: The Status of Apostasy, Blasphemy, and Anti-conversion Laws Around the World." Since the last edition of the report, released in 2019, three countries have repealed laws that threaten religious freedom for their people. Along with other positive changes that helped to remove it from the U.S. State Department's list of "Countries of Particular Concern," Sudan repealed its apostasy law, which prohibited leaving the Muslim faith and could carry the death penalty. Two European nations, Ireland and Greece, repealed their blasphemy laws. Meanwhile, there are efforts to broaden anti-conversion laws in India and anti-conversion laws continued to be actively enforced in Nepal. Of the countries listed in the report, 17 countries have apostasy laws, 70 countries have blasphemy laws, and 6 have anti-conversion laws....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In the final Sunday of the 2020 election cycle, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins will be preaching in Miami-Dade County at one of the state's largest multi-ethnic churches, King Jesus Miami. Perkins, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, will be challenging evangelical voters to take a stand for the sanctity of human life, religious freedom, and the family by voting biblical values on Tuesday, November 3....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council applauded the U.S. Senate vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy left by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Pacific Justice Institute, representing Family Research Council (FRC), sent a letter today to MobileCause CEO Victor Limongelli regarding their termination of their contract with FRC. Last month, in a stunning incident of big tech censorship and religious discrimination, MobileCause terminated the contract one hour before the conservative religious organization's Pray Vote Stand broadcast. The termination, based upon Family Research Council's religious views, prevented the broadcast from reaching thousands of Christian voters with information about the 2020 election....
Washington, D.C. -During today's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Judge Amy Barrett's nomination to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) entered into the record a letter by Family Research Council (FRC) urging senators to confirm Judge Barrett....
Chino, CA - On Sunday, October 11, at 8:00 PM ET, Family Research President Tony Perkins will join Pastor Jack Hibbs in hosting Freedom Sunday, an in-person church service at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino, CA that will be live streamed to churches and homes across the country. Freedom Sunday is a call for the resumption of in-person church services in obedience to Scripture (Hebrews 10:25) and a freedom guaranteed by the Constitution. Across the nation, many state and local government officials continue to take unconstitutional steps to restrict worship services even as they've allowed the reopening of casinos, tattoo parlors, abortion centers, liquor stores, and most all other businesses. ...
WASHINGTON, DC - President Donald Trump today announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee to the nation's highest court....
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council President Tony Perkins called out the ongoing anti-Christian smear campaign against prospective Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett, currently under consideration for Justice Ginsburg's vacant seat. Among others, members of the Left and the media have attacked Judge Barrett in the last few days for her religious beliefs. Barrett has made clear in multiple statements that her Catholic faith does not dictate her duties as a judge, but this still has not stopped those on the Left from imposing what amounts to a religious test. ...
Family Research Council Statement on the Passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - On Tuesday evening at 8:00 p.m. ET, the 15th annual Values Voter Summit will kick off. Instead of attending in person, this year values voters will join the all-virtual event from their own homes and churches....
Washington, D.C. - Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at Family Research Council, spent the last two nights testifying in opposition to a proposed municipal ordinance in Anchorage, Alaska, No. AO 202-65, which would make it unlawful for any professional counselor to engage in sexual orientation or gender identity change efforts (SOCE or GICE) with a patient who is a minor....
