2022

CURE President Star Parker provided a statement in support of the House Republican Study Committee’s Family Policy Agenda, which accompanied the agenda’s release today. The agenda outlines 10 principles to guide conservatives’ work to restore the American family.

Today, CURE Founder and President Star Parker convened with U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), U.S. Representative Chris Smith (R-N.J.), Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser, and other pro-life women leaders to introduce the Protecting Pain-Capable Unborn Children from Late-Term Abortions Act, federal legislation to limit abortion after 15 weeks.

Star Parker sat down with Richard Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, to discuss the FBI's brazen raid on Donald Trump's Mar-A-Lago residence Monday night, how the left is weaponizing the Department of Justice against conservatives, and what we do going forward.

The so-called Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) will push low-income Americans deeper into government dependency, harm small business owners, increase our national debt, exacerbate inflation, weaponize the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and promote another racially divisive government narrative. We urge you to oppose this ill-advised legislation. 

CURE Founder and President Star Parker, as well as Vice President for Government Relations & Coalitions Marty Dannenfelser and CURE Board Member Ken Blackwell, signed the Conservative Action Project’s memo entitled “Conservatives Vehemently Oppose the Biden Administration’s Radical Attempt to Rewrite Title IX.”

CURE Board Member, and President of Sisters-for-Life, Angela Minter was recently a headline speaker at the “Love Them Both” pro-life rally taking place in the Indiana Statehouse on July 26th.

The Senate may soon consider H.R. 8373, the “Right to Contraception Act.” This bill undermines conscience rights and could force states and non-profit organizations to be complicit in the distribution of abortifacients. Therefore, we urge to you oppose this ill-advised legislation.

H.R. 8404 represents an inappropriate exercise of Federal authority and provides no protection for those whose religious beliefs do not conform to the cultural agenda of partisan advocates. We urge you to oppose this ill-advised legislation.

On Monday, CURE founder and president Star Parker convened a joint press conference with black leaders, thinkers, and scholars to celebrate the reversal of Roe v. Wade and to condemn the plans by President Biden and Congress to push federal legislation that would enforce nationwide abortion on demand up to the moment of birth.

H.R. 8296 advances the false narrative that abortion on demand is health care, undermines religious freedom and conscience rights of pro-life doctors and nurses, eliminates parental notification laws, and would force taxpayers to fund abortion on demand during all nine months of pregnancy.

CURE will host a press conference on Monday, July 11 at 10:00 a.m. EST with black pro-life experts and advocates to push back against the attempts by Congress and the Biden Administration to pass national legislation allowing abortion up until the moment of birth.

The House is soon scheduled to consider H.R. 2543, “Federal Reserve Racial and Economic Equity Act.” This bill promotes racial discrimination and seeks to impose a partisan agenda on the Federal Reserve, an independent agency that is charged with seeking maximum sustainable employment and price stability.

The protection of human life is the first obligation of every level of government.
