imageThe American Principles Project, Susan B. Anthony List and American Values are co-sponsoring Plank 1 in order to send a message to Republican leadership to put principles first since the GOP leadership is on the verge of taking central social issues out of their agenda.

Plank 1 states:

Our nation is only as strong as its core components: families, neighborhoods, churches and other religious communities, marriage and the voluntary associations of many types that make for a vibrant civil society.  We will act to:

Protect religious liberty and celebrate the role of religious institutions in the formation of our nation’s most cherished and most basic principles;

Move strongly toward the nationwide reversal of abortion on demand, by enacting a permanent, comprehensive “Hyde amendment” restrictions on abortion funding; enacting comprehensive and enforceable conscience protections; protecting the notification and consent right of parents regarding their minor children; banning all forms of human cloning; and increasing support of ethical and effective alternatives to embryo-destructive experimentation;

Protect marriage as the union of husband and wife, recognizing that children do best with a married mother and father and that our laws and our judges should respect and defend this most fundamental institution of society;

Protect the right of parents to direct the upbringing of their children and strengthen parental options to choose and finance the education of their children;

Preserve the Innocence of our children by increasing parental and local control over sex and civics education and by promoting abstinence education programs;

Preserve and strengthen “charitable choice” provisions that protect religious nonprofits;

Reform anti-poverty programs to ensure that they encourage personal development, work, and the marriage-based family;

Protect public recognition of our nation’s trust in God as the Author of our unalienable rights and freedoms;

Honor those who have died and those who have fought for our right and liberty.
