EXCLUSIVE: Reps. Miller, Babin, and Harshbarger Launch the Congressional Family Caucus
For years, we have witnessed a concerted effort by activists on the Left to abolish the natural family. The natural family, a man and a woman committed for life to each other and to their children, was ordained by God as the foundation of our society. The natural family is essential for a nation to prosper because the family is the root of self-government, service, community, and personal responsibility.
That is why we are proudly launching the Congressional Family Caucus to defend the interests of families in Washington.
The mission of the radical Left is clear: replace the natural family with the federal government. The Left advances abortion, fatherlessness, surgical castration, and atheism. These woke progressives attempt to subvert parental rights by eliminating parental consent for abortion and “gender transition” procedures. They fill school curriculums with perverse transgender ideology and racist critical race theory.
The marriage-based family is under attack, and we should not embrace a culture that works to remove these foundations of our society that have been affirmed throughout human history.
Today, too many conservatives are afraid to glorify God in public life or acknowledge the irreplaceable benefit of having a mother and a father in the home. We believe we have a moral obligation as servant representatives to protect and conserve the family. We cannot allow the Left to continue to advance their dogma that children belong more to the state than to their own parents.
The Congressional Family Caucus will serve to defend the natural family from attempts by the radical Left to erode this core foundation of our society. We will initiate legislation favorable to American families and discuss the effects major legislation will have on the family.
A happy family is a blessing from God and is foundational to human flourishing. The Congressional Family Caucus will promote policies that are God-driven and family-focused in order to conserve and protect American families and ensure they prosper for years to come. We look forward to sharing this message and officially launching the Congressional Family Caucus in the United States Congress.
