With two major setbacks this week—the U.S. Supreme Court sanctioning same-sex marriage in all 50 states and the approval by a California Senate Committee of a “bully” bill targeting Pregnancy Resource Clinics—traditional family advocates in California appeared to have little to celebrate.
But lost in the headlines of a busy news week was the quiet postponement of a key committee vote. Senate Bill (SB) 128, the assisted suicide bill that California Family Alliance and California Family Council have been working diligently to defeat, was READ MORE

Hold on to your freedoms; California lawmakers are back on the job after a weeklong hiatus. The break in legislative action came after a hectic few weeks leading up to the first bicameral deadline on June 5. All bills that passed out of their house of origin by that deadline must now make their way through the opposite chamber.
One of the first ones out of the gate will be Assembly Bill (AB) 775, which passed through the Assembly on May 26 and faces its first Senate hearing next week. Mirroring its path in the Assembly, AB 775 will be heard June 24 before the Senate Health Committee. That means the deadline to get your opposition letters in for the official record is tomorrow afternoon! READ MORE

Physician-assisted suicide in California is one step closer to reality after the Democrat-led state Senate approved the practice in a 23-14 vote last Thursday (June 4). All Republicans voted against the measure, as did Montebello Democrat Tony Mendoza. Additionally, two Democrat Senators abstained: Ben Hueso, (D-San Diego), and Sen. Richard Pan, (D-Sacramento), a medical doctor.
The California Medical Association (CMA) recently decided to drop opposition to the law (taking a “neutral” stand on assisted suicide). This, along with a concerted push to make READ MORE
California Family Alliance (CFA) is a not-for-profit, political action organization that works in affiliation with California Family Council. CFA’s purpose is to advocate for pro-family, pro-life issues at the grassroots and legislative levels.
Because of our advocacy for and against legislative bills, ballot measures and cultural issues, CFA is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(4) organization. This IRS status means that contributions to CFA are not tax-deductible. We rely on the gifts of families and individuals who believe California’s public policies must be researched, analyzed and communicated to the state’s citizens, in order to motivate participation in the process of government.
Similar to California Family Council, CFA limits its involvement to matters that affect innocent life, religious liberty, and the historic, traditional family, such as:
• Embryonic stem cell research
• Physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia
• Human trafficking and child protection
• Parental authority
• Educational curricula
• Alternative sexual orientation “rights”
• Same-sex “marriage”
• Rights of conscience and employment laws
• Adoption and foster care
• Fiscal responsibility
• Divorce and its consequences
