On September 25, the House Budget Committee approved H.R. 5376, a $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that recklessly spends taxpayers’ money on priorities that are destructive to our national economy and ideologically radical. While we expect bicameral negotiations to lower the short-term spending number, the bill will lock in massive new spending for the long-term and advance a socialist policy agenda. We urge you to oppose this ill-advised legislation.

Former Attorney General William Barr, Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, Congressman Byron Donalds, former NFL star Jack Brewer, and former Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill were among the speakers that walked attendees through the policy challenges in Washington and provided important information and ideas for action to impact their churches and their communities.

Today the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) sent letters to Capitol Hill calling on Members of Congress to oppose H.R. 3755, the “Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021,” being debated in the U.S. House Friday and that advances the false premise that abortion on demand is health care.

The House will soon consider H.R. 3755, the “Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021.” This bill advances the false narrative that abortion on demand is health care, demonizes those who recognize the scientific reality of human life in the womb, undermines religious freedom, and injects the federal government into an area of state jurisdiction. We urge you to oppose this radical legislation.
