Civic Action

As Christians, we accept the Lord's kingship over all living things. As Americans, we believe in a free and just society, which should protect life at all stages. As American Christians, we must persuade our fellow citizens to enact in law the founding principles of this great nation: that each person has a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Even as we enjoy the blessings of freedom, over 4,000 unborn Americans lose their lives legally each day. Undaunted attacks against human life escalate: efforts to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide, medical research using human embryos, attempts at human cloning, and use of the death penalty. The Civic Action Group encourages elected officials to support and defend legal protection for all human life. To accomplish this goal, the group monitors relevant federal and state legislation and administrative rulings, and seeks dialogue with legislators on life issues.

“Justice, and only justice you shall pursue, that you may live and possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you.” – Deuteronomy 16:20
