Restore Asylum at the US-Mexico Border

By |April 16th, 2021|

Systems that provide protection to the forcibly displaced have been tested over the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although people fleeing conflict and persecution have a fundamental right to seek asylum, many countries – including the United States – continue to close their borders to asylum seekers. For more information, check out this recent report from Jesuit Refugee Service USA and Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of International Migration.

Stop the Expansion of Taxpayer-Funded Abortions

By |April 16th, 2021|

There are simultaneous efforts in both Sacramento and Washington, DC to use more taxpayer funds for abortions. California Senate Bill 245 (Health care coverage: abortion services: cost sharing.) would remove insurance co-pays or any other cost-sharing requirement for all abortion services and would prohibit cost sharing from being imposed on a Medi-Cal beneficiary for those services. Meanwhile, powerful members of Congress are seeking to overturn permanently the 45 year-old bipartisan Hyde Amendment and related policies, resulting in billions of taxpayer dollars to be used to pay for elective abortions in the United States and throughout the world.

Let your lawmakers in Sacramento and in Congress know that women deserve better than abortion. Women need greater access to life-affirming services, not more assistance to have an abortion.

Support the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

By |April 16th, 2021|

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 619) has again been introduced in Congress so babies born alive following an abortion attempt are treated the same as any other newborn baby. Some states have passed laws to expand abortion and to repeal laws providing specific protections for babies born alive after surviving an attempted abortion. The Born-Alive Act would provide these specific protections nationwide to help prevent newborns from being killed or left alone to die. Click here to urge your Congressmember to allow a vote on this bill in the House.
