We’re in the Final Stretch

Today marks the first day of the final stretch. Legislators are back and only have one day off, June 19th, until Session ends on June 30th. This ought to be an interesting week. Here’s what we’re especially watching:

Though this isn’t the first time HB 140 has been heard in the DE Legislature, this is the first time it’s found its way to the Senate. That within itself is something major! The votes that helped to long hold back this issue, were no longer there this year. It received the 21 votes necessary to pass it with less push back than ever.

As the Senate hears this bill for the first time in committee tomorrow, our Senators need to hear from you. They need to understand just how much HB 140 will change the medical ethos within Delaware. Rather than legalizing death, we ought to be helping patients to live.

Make sure  you contact the Senate to let your voice be heard on HB 140. For a starting point on how to word you comments, or major points to include, click the button below: 

In my update last week, I went over some of the back and forth during the Floor Session for HB 110 in the House.

It was pointed out that women who fail to obtain abortions are at higher risk for financial hardships. In other words, the murder of the preborn child is justified by potential financial reasons.  I can assure you that this was presented in way as if it was compassion, compassion towards the mother. However, it completely quantified the value of the preborn child. It says that their life is worth the $750 or less that it would cost to dismember them rather than recognizing the immense value they hold as individually created persons. 

Financial hardships are indeed a reality for many unplanned pregnancies; this reality, however, is not for the preborn child to pay with their life. There is no monetary value that can stand as a sufficient payment for the life of another.

I’d further like to challenge you with this thought: it is because we understand both the reality of financial hardship and the immense value of the unborn life that we strongly support the help that pregnancy care centers offer to the thousands of women and babies they serve. They do not deserve to  be unduly burdened or attacked in any measure, as SB 300 so clearly does. Women and babies deserve more than abortion. 

Check out last week’s update for links to tell the Senate that:

  1. Taxpayer funds have no business going towards abortion and,
  2. Our pregnancy care centers need to be protected, not attacked.  
  1. HB 374: Remove Medical Liability for IVF (Tues @10am) 

IVF is supported by many, that does not mean the medical personnel involved in the process are to be removed from liability.

There have been quite a number of ethical concerns with IVF over the years, some because of unsanctioned practices by doctors, others simply because of unanswered questions with the rights of the baby at the embryonic stage. In last week’s update, the Live Action article talking about the unreported errors is also linked. These are not issues to take lightly.

I should also mention that the coverage of HB 374 is set to go towards ‘reproductive health services.’ Rather than using language that speaks directly to its nature, IVF procedures, it uses a much more broad phrasing. Why is that?🤔  To check out how this bill is directly related to the gender transition bill, HB 346, take a look at last week’s update. 


  1. SB 297: Requirement of Marxist DEI in Public School (Wed @ 3pm)

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are all words that have meanings that the average individual would agree possess a rather positive connotation. When used collectively, however, these three words take on a whole additional meaning. DEI is the application of “unequal standards to ensure preferential outcomes for individuals and groups based on race, sex, and gender identity.”

Another such bill to push DEI, HB 198, was signed in 2021. HB 198 was supposed to require schools teach “Black History,” but within the phrasing of the bill itself, there were clear traces of much more — it was obvious,  yet subtle DEI integration. SB 297 boldly proclaims its intention to require DEI within K-12 school, but the initial verbiage of the bill focuses on integration of Asian American and Pacific Islanders in school curriculum.  

 As previously stated, DEI has a meaning all of its own that is separate from the definitions of each individual word. This definition means that DEI is perpetually intertwined with Marxism–an ideal that is responsible for manufacturing and perpetuating victimhood. It plays identity politics like no other, attempting to determine a person/group’s success or acceptance based on criteria such as race, gender identity, etc. 

Even if SB 297 does not pass, which it is very likely to do, you must know that its ideals are already quite pervasive throughout education and today’s popular culture. We took a great deal of time to gather some of the best resources to help you process and speak to this issue on our DelawareFamilies.org/Marxism page. Review and share!

Just because someone is a part of the Democrat or Republican party doesn’t mean that they’re actually a part of the Democrat or Republican party. This is particularly true in “closed” states, like Delaware. In a closed state, a individual can only vote in the Primary of their own political party. If they do not fall in line with either, they are only able to vote in General elections after the Primary. Because of this, many will decide to register as a particular party purely for the sake of wanting to vote in that Primary election. 

On the contrary, “open” states allow for individuals to vote in whichever Primary they so choose without regard to whatever personal party affiliation they may have. HB 43 doesn’t quite switch Delaware from “closed” to “open,” but it would allow the approximately 170,000 registered Independents to vote in the Primary of t heir choice. This is somewhat of a hybrid model, which exists in about 14 or so other states.

The topic of consuming raw dairy products is one of controversy in certain circles. Many people escribe to the the thought that pasteurized dairy products don’t just remove potentially harmful bacteria and pathogens, but also some of the good nutrients. While others believe that the health benefits that may be present in raw dairy don’t outweight the presence of potential harms. Wherever you stand on the matter, SB 273 provides freedom to the consumer to purchase at their own risk.
