You get plenty of bad news, so here’s some good news.
In 2013, we worked together and made Washington State better than it would have been otherwise.
We defeated the abortion insurance mandate.
For the second year in a row, the top legislative priority of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry was a bill to require everyone to pay for abortion insurance. It was narrowly defeated in the Senate.
Any day you beat Big Abortion in Washington State is a good day!
We protected parental rights.
The legislature considered a bill that would have given judges the authority to give visitation to your child even if you and your spouse opposed. It was defeated in the Senate after passing the House.
We improved our state Senate.
Bad bills like these will be even more difficult to pass now because the make-up of the Washington State Senate is better.
In the most expensive legislative race in Washington’s history, our voter education efforts reached more than 11,500 pro-life households. As a result, a pro-life candidate received 1,900 more votes than a Senator who opposed parental notification for abortion and supported forcing everyone to pay for abortion insurance.
That’s the real kind of progress.
Of course 2014 is going to bring new challenges and new opportunities, but we aren’t going away and we hope you won’t either.
Eventually, truth wins.
If this encourages you, and you want to see more progress in 2014, your year-end, tax-deductible gift of $5 or more
will help make that possible.
Thank you for standing with us.
