Duluth, GA – Timothy Head, Executive Director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, released the following statement on the directive by President Trump to reverse the Obama administration’s order under Title IX, that public schools and universities that receive federal funding provide bath and locker room access for transgender students.
“Thank you President Trump for your decision to uphold the rule of law and reverse the Obama administration’s directive that put the privacy and safety of public school children at risk. The Obama administration usurped the will of the people and imposed their far left ideology on public schools and universities through coercion by the Departments of Education and Justice and now this overreaching federal mandate is being thrown on the trash heap of history where it belongs.”

He can now begin the work that the American people elected this administration to do, including the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare and its increased insurance premiums for families and individuals, bloated state budgets from Medicaid expansion, and an unconstitutional mandate that requires faith-based organizations to provide medical services that violate their consciences and faith.

FFC Chairman Ralph Reed Statement On President Trump’s Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch To U.S. Supreme Court
Duluth, GA – Faith & Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed issued the following statement on President Donald J. Trump’s announcement that he will nominate Judge Neil Gorsuch of Colorado to the U.S Supreme Court.
“President Trump won 81 percent of the evangelical vote in no small measure because he made an ironclad pledge that if elected he would fill the vacancy on the US Supreme Court with a strict constructionist who would respect the Constitution and the rule of law, not legislate from the bench. We never doubted then-candidate Trump’s sincerity or commitment, and by nominating Judge Neil Gorsuch, he has now kept that promise. Judge Gorsuch is a widely respected jurist whose razor-sharp intellect is complemented by his temperament and the knowledge of the law. He is exactly who the nation needs as a Supreme Court Justice in the model of the late Antonin Scalia. Faith & Freedom Coalition is thrilled by this nomination and will work tirelessly for the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch.”

Tim Head, Executive Director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, issued the following statement on U.S. House approval of H.R. 7 the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act of 2017 by a bipartisan vote of 238 to 183, to create a uniform policy against taxpayer funding of abortion in all government programs.
“The 115th Congress is already hard at work to dramatically reverse the abhorrent pro-abortion policies of the past eight years, policies that included abortion services as health care services and forcing U.S. taxpayers to pay for it. Thanks to Rep. Chris Smith and other members of the House pro-life caucus we are one step closer to creating a permanent, government wide ban of taxpayer dollars being used to fund abortion providers and promoters.”
Duluth, GA – Faith & Freedom Coalition Executive Director Tim Head issued the following statement on President Donald Trump’s signing of an Executive Order reversing Barack Obama’s decision to overturn the the Mexico City policy instituted by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. The original order barred abortion providers who operate in foreign countries from receiving U.S taxpayer funds.
“President Trump on only his third day in office has already delivered on his campaign promise to be a strong pro-life President by re-instituting President Reagan’s Mexico City Policy. The Executive Order simply requires that foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) agree, as a condition of their receipt of U.S. federal grant money, to neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning overseas. The life community is thankful that the Trump administration is now putting an immediate stop to our tax dollars being used to promote and perform abortions across the globe. The abortion industry and organizations that perform and promote abortion will now be forced to seek funding from sources other than the U.S taxpayer.”
