BREAKING: Proposed Standards Would Teach School Children Gender Is Fluid & Abortion Is Healthcare
Twenty years ago, our lives changed forever. The attacks of September 11th, 2001, reshaped the face of America and the course of history. September 11th will forever remind us of unimaginable tragedy, of lives lost, and the sorrow our nation felt as we watched airplanes flying into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.
Today, the Nebraska State Board of Education voted to indefinitely postpone development of the proposed health standards! This is a huge victory for parents and kids in Nebraska.
More than ever before it’s essential that parents know their rights and are prepared to defend them. Your rights don’t end at the schoolhouse gate—and you don’t have to keep your faith, family values, and First Amendment freedoms at home.
Former Nebraska Attorney General Don Stenberg joined the NFA Daily Spotlight to discuss an upcoming abortion lawsuit set to be heard in the Supreme Court. Mr. Stenberg—an honors graduate of Harvard Law School—served as Nebraska’s Attorney General for 12 years and argued several major cases at the Supreme Court, including the partial-birth abortion case Stenberg v. Carhart. In 2018, the Mississippi Legislature passed a fetal pain law that prohibits abortions after 15 weeks gestation, with exceptions for medical emergencies and severe fetal abnormalities. Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization has the potential to upend Roe v. Wade or, at the very least, revise caselaw to allow states to prohibit elective abortions before viability. This case is one of the most substantial abortion-related cases the Supreme Court has heard in decades and could establish a new fetal-pain standard for abortion prohibitions.
Rick Garnett, a leading expert on the freedoms of speech, association, and religion, joined the NFA Daily Spotlight. Professor Garnett clerked in the Supreme Court for the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 1996 and currently teaches constitutional law at the University of Notre Dame. Listen to the discussion about how the phrase “separation of church and state” is often misinterpreted as the absence of religion in government. The Constitution—specifically the First Amendment—enumerates, protects, and fosters the freedom to openly practice religion and the independent autonomy of religious communities and institutions. Faith has a place in public policy debates, and Christians should engage in policy discussions, sharing their deeply-held religious beliefs.
The NFA Daily Spotlight: A Woman’s Search For Redemption, Mercy, And Justice For Trafficking Victims
Cyntoia Brown Long joins the Daily Spotlight this week. At a young age, Cyntoia was ensnared into forced prostitution. One night in an act of self-defense, she shot and killed a man who had purchased her for sex. Tried as an adult and sentenced to life in prison at age 16, Cyntoia found God in prison and began living to honor him. She earned an associate’s and bachelor’s degree with a 4.0 GPA. After serving 15 years in prison, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam recognized the complexities of her case and her remarkable transformation, and he granted Cyntoia clemency.
Whether its policies written by your local school board, an ordinance signed by your mayor, policies crafted by your state representative or laws passed by Congress – public policies affect you. They lay the foundation for the future of our children and grandchildren. That’s why NFA is committed to influencing policy, so that Nebraska might be a state where marriages and families thrive, life is cherished, and religious freedom is celebrated.
At Nebraska Family Alliance, prayer is the foundation of everything we do. According to 2 Chronicles 7:14, if God’s people will humble themselves, pray, and seek His face, God promises to heal the land. We believe if the body of Christ unites in prayer our state will be transformed according to His will.
