We are still establishing final positions on many bills, so if you have insight into any on this list or others, please let me know.  Thank you.  These bills will make their way up to our Legislative Hub this week, but at least you'll have them in front of you here.

 

Please note SB5602, Eliminating Barriers to Reproductive Health, is a huge expansion of last year's "Abortion Mandate" bill (SB6219).  The bill would require tax-payer coverage for cross-sex hormones, gender transition surgery, and all other transition-related health-care services including reproductive/fertility insurance to cover egg/sperm storage and in-vitro fertilization.  The legislation also expands last year's bill to cover student health insurance.  The bill requires coverage for not just the student but also the partner of the student which seems to be extremely broad coverage. This is much broader than faith-based schools because taxpayers are funding all the controversial services above for students and they’re partners. Tax-payers would be paying for Plan B, abortifacients, as well.

 

This is certainly the worst proposal among several others, including requiring Comprehensive Sex Education in every school district, creating a Universal home visit program to families with newborns, and providing 3rd-gender or non-binary options on official documents.

We will, of course, be supporting the several pro-life bills listed above, and we are excited to see bi-partisan support for a measure that would require libraries to install systems on their computers to protect children from seeing obscene and harmful materials.  More on all these to come.

This spreadsheet is on our website and will be updated as hearing dates are announced.  Just click here and share with family and friends.

Until then pray, mobilize your friends and family, and speak up in your churches.  

Yesterday, over one thousand hairdressers came to Olympia to protest proposed legislation.  If one thousand hairdressers can find the time and energy to fill the halls-of-power there, we certainly can find thousands of Christians who will stand in the public square for God's Truth.

Family Policy Institute of Washington will continue to monitor the flow of legislation and begin to provide talking points on the key bills above.  Stay tuned.
