URGENT UPDATE: The Democrat-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee will hear testimony tomorrow (Tuesday, April 7) on Senate Bill (SB) 128, which will legalize assisted-suicide.

Remember when higher education was supposed to be “the marketplace of ideas?” Sadly, it seems that one side wants a monopoly.
URGENT REMINDER: The Senate Health Committee will hear Senate Bill 128, a proposal to legalize assisted suicide in California, this Wednesday.

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
