6 Months, 14 Victories
After a legislative session cut short by Covid 19 last year, state lawmakers took on hundreds of bills this session, passing a flurry of pro-life, pro-family bills, along with election reforms, and curriculum regulations. Legislators were not shy in taking on controversial issues, many that are the topic of conversation around the dinner table. CAP's policy team sorts out the wins and losses, and makes sense of it all so Arizonans understand how it will affect their quality of life.

Growing hostility toward Religious freedom directly attacks the First Amendment right to exercise one’s religion without undue interference from government. We see it in efforts to force businessmen and women to choose between their livelihoods and their deeply held beliefs. We see charities forced to violate their beliefs if they want to continue serving those in need, and churches forced to comply with more intense restrictions than other organizations and businesses during the pandemic. But we also are witnessing a pattern of U.S. Supreme Court rulings that uphold religious freedom. The latest example came in SCOTUS’ unanimous ruling in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia. There is much more to the decision than a win for Fulton. Listen to this analysis.

Autonomy reigns in today’s culture. It supersedes the long-held understanding of humanity and sexuality, and the respect for religion and God himself. We see people running away from God and from truth, rejecting the creator and trying to do it their own way. The result divides and destroys. How does one thrive and influence culture in such a hostile environment? Doctor Del Tackett has some answers.

Many bills languishing in the State Legislature have a direct or indirect impact on each of us and our quality of life. They affect our rights as parents, educators, students, churchgoers, and community members. With the budget deadline looming, what compromises are legislators making to reach an agreement, and will that mean the sacrifice of pending pro-life, pro-family policy? We discuss that, the risks involved, and how the 2022 election line up is already taking shape.

Dobbs v Roe?
Will we look back years from now and see Dobbs as the beginning of the end of Roe? The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to take up a key issue in the abortion debate: Are all bans on pre-viability abortion unconstitutional? The answer could upend rulings in Roe and Casey, setting off a potential undoing of the so-called right to abortion throughout the country. Those answers are a year out, but there are aspects of the case to consider now as we watch pro-abortion activists set the stage to counter any such outcome.

Are you Paying Attention?
The last week of committee hearings on proposed bills at the Arizona Capitol did not disappoint. Fireworks and drama gave a glimpse of what's to come on the House and Senate floors.

We talk about where this is going and how to head it off on this episode of Engage Arizona. Plus, what the South Dekota Governor's surprise veto of a women's sports bill means for similar efforts, including here in Arizona.
