Nathan Cherry at Engage Family Minute: Joe Infranco, writing at Alliance Defending Freedom, says of people who suffer from selective moral offense: “Should these people have a Constitutional right not to be offended? If so, why is it superior to my offense over a taxpayer-funded cross soaking in urine? (Apparently a cross may receive government money so long as fashionable artists are mocking it.) We have been sold a bill of goods that mere offense should be a special exception when religious expression is made in public.”
Engage Family Minute: The case to implement reasonable health and safety regulations on the abortion industry in West Virginia is mounting.
Lori Kersey at WV Gazette: Attorneys representing both women are associated with the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian group that opposes abortion. In June, Itai Gravely, a 26-year-old represented by Jeremiah Dys of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia, filed a malpractice lawsuit against Dr. Rodney Stephens of Women’s Health Center, an abortion clinic in Charleston. [more]
Herald Online: In June, Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey began investigating whether any regulatory changes are needed. That investigation followed the filing of a lawsuit by The Family Policy Council on behalf of a woman who claims a Women’s Health Center doctor performed an abortion over her objections. Itai Gravely says she asked Dr. Rodney Stephens to stop because she was having severe abdominal pain. The lawsuit also claims the doctor left the fetus’ head inside the uterus.

FPCWV press conference Monday will announce next step in campaign to bring accountability to abortionists
The Family Policy Council of West Virginia will announce the next step in the Illuminate Campaign, a united effort to show our state the need to ensure that the abortion industry of West Virginia is operating with proper oversight and accountability.
Touchstone Mere Comments Blog: You may have heard about the horrific incident involving Itai Gravely, a 26-year-old woman. In June, she filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against Dr. Rodney Lee Stephens, a doctor at the Women’s Health Center in Charleston, West Virginia. She alleges that Dr. Stephens forced her to go through with an abortion after she asked him to stop.
Nathan Cherry at the Engage Family Blog: We’re constantly being told that Americans “overwhelmingly” support marriage redefinition. I don’t buy that considering that just a few years ago one of the most liberal states, California, when given the chance didn’t legalize same-sex “marriage.” That alone should be a red flag that all those talking heads telling us that a majority of Americans support redefining marriage aren’t telling the truth.

Nathan Cherry at Engage Family Minute: I’ve spent a lot of time with pastors encouraging them to get involved and be proactive in defending the sanctity of human life, traditional marriage, and our religious freedoms. – . . . Hint: Use a good news aggregator; I use Feedly, to stay informed. That way, instead of having to go to a dozen websites to find the news, the news will come to you. I recommend following our blog, the Engage Family Minute, ADF’s Alliance Alert, Family Research Council’s FRC Blog, World Net daily, and Life News. You will be well informed daily.
One News Now: Jeremy Dys, who heads the Family Policy Council of West Virginia and is an ADF-allied attorney, has revealed the clinic abortionist is Rodney Lee Stephens. “Whatever regulations Women’s Health Center of West Virginia thinks are currently on the books, as they say — and we believe there are none — Dr. Stephens and Women’s Health Center of West Virginia exposed our client to extraordinary pain and suffering and placed her life in danger,” Dys asserts. “Our legislature needs to respond to this and soon.”
WorldNetDaily (7/7): “We are grateful that the attorney general continues to be concerned about the safety of women, which is clearly more important than abortionists’ bottom-line profits. It is shocking to see that Women’s Health Center of West Virginia believes that what it did to Itai Gravely could possibly be called ‘quality medical care services’ in light of the serious allegations against it,” said Jeremiah Dys, the president of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia. He’s also an allied attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom. “Whatever ‘regulations’ it thinks are ‘currently on the books’ – and we believe there are none – Dr. Stephens and Women’s Health Center of West Virginia exposed Itai to extraordinary suffering and placed her life in danger. We continue to urge the governor to end his silence on this issue and join with the attorney general in leading this state’s implementation of sensible abortion regulations.”
Life News (7/3): Alliance Defending Freedom and the Family Policy Council of West Virginia are representing a West Virginia woman in a lawsuit against the Women’s Health Center of West Virginia abortion facility and abortion practitioner Rodney Lee Stephens of Charleston . . . Jeremiah Dys, president and general counsel of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia, emailed LifeNews in response . . .
Engage Family Minute: I think the pregnant question is how will the church respond? Will it continue to tolerate a culture of divorce, co-habitation, and infidelity in marriage that threatens to destroy the family? Will it continue to skirt the issue of homosexuality in order to not “offend” anyone? Or will the church finally start teaching a complete model of biblical sexuality and marriage that boldly addresses all these issues? It’s not unloving to teach the truth of Scripture. It is however, unloving to teach only a half-truth while ignoring the whole truth.
Religion Clause Blog: The complaint (full text) in Holland v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, (SD WV, filed 6/24/2013), contends that required coverage for ella and Plan B, along with related counseling, violates plaintiffs’ rights under the First Amendment and RFRA:
Engage Family Minute: I remember when someone told FPCWV president Jeremy Dys not to “legislate your morality on the rest of us.” His response has stuck with me ever since. Jeremy simply replied “Would you rather I legislate my immorality?”
Are Pastors Finally Waking Up and Ready to Address Biblical Moral Issues? | Nathan Cherry at Christian Post
Nathan Cherry of Family Policy Council of WV at the Christian Post: The issues of life and marriage are not merely cultural, social, or political issues. They are biblical moral issues. Unfortunately, marriage and the sanctity of life have been so politicized that many pastors have failed in their duties to preach and teach in light of the Gospel.

Updated: Media Covering FPCWV Lawsuit Against Abortion Clinic | Engage Family Minute (includes video)
Engage Family Minute: Below is the video from our News Conference in which we announced a medical malpractice suit against West Virginia’s largest abortion clinic and its abortionist Rodney Lee Stephens. The suit was filed on behalf of Itai Gravely and in partnership with Alliance Defending Freedom. Jeremy Dys, president and general counsel of the FPCWV shared comments and announced the lawsuit on Monday, June 10, 2013.
TimesWV.com (AP): Family Policy Council President Jeremy Dys said last week that Gravely had been going to the clinic for birth control, returned when she became pregnant and was persuaded by counselors to have an abortion. The Family Policy Council is being assisted in the lawsuit by Alliance Defending Freedom, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Christian civil rights group that also has sued an abortion doctor in Colorado.
Daily Mail: Jeremiah Dys, president and general counsel of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia, an anti-abortion religious organization, called for greater regulation last week in announcing a lawsuit against one of the two Charleston clinics. Dys and the Alliance Defending Freedom, another conservative Christian group, are representing Itai Gravely in her lawsuit against Dr. Rodney Lee Stephens and the Women’s Health Center.
LifeNews: Alliance Defending Freedom and the Family Policy Council of West Virginia are representing a West Virginia woman in a lawsuit against the Women’s Health Center of West Virginia abortion facility and abortion practitioner Rodney Lee Stephens of Charleston. In the lawsuit, Itai Gravely claims Stephens forced her to proceed with an abortion against her will and then left her baby’s head in her womb.
“We commend the attorney general for being more concerned about the safety of women than the bottom line of abortionists. What Dr. Stephens and Women’s Health Center did to Itai Gravely cannot be swept under the rug. They exposed her to extraordinary cruelty and put her life in danger. We urge the governor to take immediate action to implement sensible abortion facility regulations in West Virginia.”
KTVU (AP): Family Policy Council President Jeremy Dys said last week that Gravely had been going to the clinic for birth control, returned when she became pregnant and was persuaded by counselors to have an abortion. The pregnancy was near the end of the first trimester; estimates ranged from 9 to 13 weeks. According to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, a fetus tends to be about 2 inches in length at 9 weeks and about 3 1/2 inches long at 12 weeks. The Family Policy Council is being assisted in the lawsuit by Alliance Defending Freedom, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Christian civil rights group that also has sued an abortion doctor in Colorado.
Woman suing over forced abortion is expecting again; abortionist subject of 9 lawsuits in 5 years | LifeSiteNews
LifeSiteNews: Jeremiah Dys, president and general counsel of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia, who is affiliated with the Alliance Defending Freedom, filed the lawsuit last Friday on behalf of Itai Gravely.
Charisma: Alliance Defending Freedom represents the group, which did not receive its tax-exempt status until last week, nearly 2 1/2 years after applying for it. “The IRS is a tax collector; it shouldn’t be allowed to be the speech-and-belief police,” says senior legal counsel Erik Stanley. “The current scandal isn’t new but has merely exposed the abuse of power that characterizes this agency and threatens our fundamental freedoms.”
Leigh Jones at World Magazine: “A woman’s life and health is more important than an abortionist’s bottom line,” said Alliance Defending Freedom-allied attorney Jeremiah Dys, president and general counsel of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia. “What Stephens and Women’s Health Center did to Itai is beyond the pale. She has been exposed to extraordinary cruelty, and her life was put in jeopardy.”
Charleston Daily Mail: Dys is president of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia, an anti-abortion religious organization. Attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian nonprofit with goals that are similar to Dys’ organization, also are representing Gravely. The legal complaint describes Gravely’s visit to the center.
Abortionist left head in womb, forced woman to go through with abortion without anesthesia: lawsuit | LifeSiteNews
LifeSiteNews: “What Stephens and Women’s Health Center did to Itai is beyond the pale,” said Jeremiah Dys, president and general counsel of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia. “She has been exposed to extraordinary cruelty, and her life was put in jeopardy.” “Our tax dollars should not fund abortionists who are irresponsible and only promote their own self-interest and bottom line,” said Michael J. Norton, co-counsel, who is with the Alliance Defending Freedom.
One News Now: According to Mattox, Stephens”went ahead and continued on with the abortion, holding her down to complete it despite the fact that she was in extreme pain.”
TimesWV.com (AP): “When a patient tells the doctor ‘stop’ and the doctor continues, that’s egregious,” Dys said. “She has revoked her informed consent. They did not regain her informed consent, and they proceeded with the procedure anyway with her physically restrained on the table. That’s unacceptable.” . . . The Family Policy Council is being assisted in the lawsuit by Alliance Defending Freedom, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Christian civil rights group that also has sued an abortion doctor in Colorado.

Charleston Gazette: “A woman’s life and health is more important than an abortionist’s bottom line,” said Jeremiah Dys, lead lawyer on the case and president of the Family Policy Council. “What Stephens and Women’s Health Center did to Itai is beyond the pale.

Nathan Cherry at Engage Family Minute: But here’s the thing about prayer: you simply cannot eliminate it! Prayer isn’t something that can be legislated out of the moral fiber of Americans with deeply held religious beliefs. You cannot simply turn prayer off and overwrite it with some politically correct “moment of silence.” That moment of silence for every follower of Jesus almost without fail turns into an opportunity to talk with God.
Nathan Cherry at Engage Family Minute: What I find extremely interesting in this ongoing discussion over homosexuality and the effort to redefine marriage is fewer people are remaining silent on the issue.

Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ is Not Inevitable, It’s Just Not Novel Anymore | Jeremy Dys at Engage Family Minute
Jeremy Dys at Engage Family Minute: And, just because it seems inevitable, maybe its not. Maybe we need to explain to our kids how formerly ‘inevitable’ ideas like Beta, VHS tapes, and the bag phone ultimately lost their novelty too.
Marriage Redefinition is Just the Beginning | Nathan Cherry of Engage Family Minute at Illinois Family Inst.
Nathan Cherry of Engage Family Minute at Illinois Family Institute: It is stunning to talk with people that believe same-sex “marriage” is the “end of the line” in the fight to redefine marriage. Unsuspecting or perhaps naïve is the best way to describe such a mentality. To believe that homosexual activists would simply seek to redefine marriage to include their lifestyle, while ignoring all other “alternative lifestyles” is simply absurd. The reality is that same-sex “marriage” is just another step in the process to erase the boundaries of what constitutes marriage and family.
Daily Mail: In short, the Supreme Court ought to allow the public – as a society – to decide the future of marriage. Why? Because marriage exists to bring a man and a woman together as husband and wife to be father and mother to any children their union produces.
— The Family Policy Council of West Virginia, which is hosting the 2nd annual Gubernatorial Prayer Breakfast on the National Day of Prayer, announced Monday that famed WVU football coach Don Nehlen will present the May 2 event’s keynote address on the importance that prayer plays in life on or off the field.
Engage Family Minute: This new video shows how our government is seeking to undermine marriage and push redefinition. But national groups like Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) and state groups like the Family Policy Council of West Virginia (FPCWV) are actively defending traditional marriage.
The Only Thing Inevitable About Same-Sex “Marriage” is that It’s Not Inevitable | Nathan Cherry at Engage Family Minute
Nathan Cherry at Engage Family Minute: Sure, there is a great chance that legalizing same-sex “marriage” won’t affect you. But I can promise you that your kids and grandkids will be affected each and every day if it is legalized. Is that what you want your legacy to be?
If Government Gets Out of the ‘Marriage Business’ You Will Have More, Not Less, Government | Jeremy Dys at Engage Family Minute
Jeremy Dys at Engage Family Minute: The central point is whether or not getting government out of the “marriage business” reduces the size of government and, ergo, increases liberty.
Protecting Student Religious Liberty at the West Virginia Legislature | Jeremy Dys at Engage Family Minute
Jeremy Dys at Engage Family Minute: This morning, I was invited to provide testimony before Subcommittee C of the Joint Committee on Education. The members wished to discuss the potential First Amendment ramifications concerning the state’s new rules related to harassment and bullying at school.
One News Now: Rather than submit to the scare tactics and bullying from the atheist group, Jeremy Dys of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia says students and families of Sissonville High took it upon themselves to defy the Foundation . . . Dys’ organization and Alliance Defending Freedom are offering assistance to help the school create a policy for student-initiated, pregame Christian speech.
WDTV.com: “Christian students have the right to peacefully express their faith at school. They do not shed their constitutional freedoms at the schoolhouse gate or in the stadium parking lot,” said Jeremy Dys, president and general counsel of the FPCWV. “Misinformed public school officials should not cater to pressure from activists who demand that religious students be silenced; rather, they should understand that the Constitution permits students to pray—and pray publicly—before football games.” . . . “Our government and courts have already spoken: students have a constitutionally protected right to participate in peaceful, public expressions of prayer and worship. Alliance Defending Freedom and the Family Policy Council of West Virginia stand with students across West Virginia as they exercise their religious liberty,” said Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Matt Sharp.
The Family Policy Council of WV, Alliance Defending Freedom stand with students praying before football games
Attorneys with the Family Policy Council of West Virginia and Alliance Defending Freedom submitted a legal memoto Kanawha County Schools Wednesday in response to an atheist group’s recent demand that the district prevent public invocations before high school football games.
Nathan Cherry at Engage Family Minute (links to audio): It’s undebatable that America has benefited greatly from the influence of pastors over the years. But, are today’s pulpits free? Attorneys from the Alliance Defending Freedom don’t think so and they are using Pulpit Freedom Sunday as a way to protect not only the proper role of the church in our society, but also your right to hear and speak the truth of the Gospel. On Today’s episode of Engaging the Issues, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom explains what pastors can do to protect religious freedom and why they should.
Engage Family Minute: The American Dream has promised that we are given the freedom to pursue happiness. Many have realized that dream through the growth of their small business. But, what if the government says that you can only pursue the American Dream if that dream is entirely secular? As Senior Counsel to the Alliance Defending Freedom and former U.S. Attorney, Mike Norton, points out, for one Colorado small business owner, the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a., “Obamacare”) has done just that.
Nathan A. Cherry at the Engage Family Blog: My complaint begins with very liberal supporters of same-sex “marriage” that say “Jesus never said anything about it” and therefore justify homosexuality. But that is only the start of the complaint, because let’s face it, liberal and lost homosexual advocates will use absolutely anything they can to drum up support for their cause. The biggest part of my complaint is that some Christians are buying into this notion and starting to repeat the rhetoric verbatim to justify their own support for same-sex “marriage.”
Engage Family Minute: Here is how you can help. Below is a petition we have started asking WVU to protect religious liberty. Would you sign it?
Newsmax: Both the Family Policy Council of West Virginia and Alliance Defending Freedom came to the defense of the restaurant chain on Friday after gay advocacy group Fairness WV urged university president James Clements to boot the restaurant, MetroNews reports.”The First Amendment protects Chick-fil-A’s right to express its opinion on marriage and other political and social issues and that any retaliation against Chick-fil-A based on its speech is a violation of federal law,” the Alliance’s senior counsel, David Cortman, wrote. In a separate but similar defense letter, Jeremiah Dys, president of the state’s Family Policy Council noted, “Were your office to approve the disassociation with a company who serves your students by selling chicken, you would undermine the very important lessons of free speech and tolerance that the university seeks to teach to its student body.”
Family Policy Council warns W. Virginia U. that Chick-Fil-A retaliation could lead to legal liability
Engage Family Minute: Following reports that West Virginia University (WVU) was considering agreeing to the demands of activists by retaliating against Chick-fil-A and removing them from campus, the president and general counsel of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia warned against the potential violation of Federal law . . . Copies of both letters are available at FamilyPolicyWV.com/action.
Nathan A. Cherry at the Engage Family Blog: It’s no wonder groups like The Family Policy Council of West Virginia and Alliance Defending Freedom are needed to keep watch over what is happening in schools and to protect children and parents rights. Just recently the West Virginia Board of Education decided to invite the homosexual advocacy group GLSEN into our schools to teach our elementary students. FPCWV president Jeremy Dys wrote of the decision

Engage Family Blog: On the final day of the 2012 Legislative Session, the West Virginia State Legislature approved H.B. 4605 a bill creating a premarital education option to applicants for marriage licenses in the state. The measure is aimed at strengthening the more than 13,000 marriages and reducing the more than 9,000 divorces that take place every year in West Virginia.
The Engage Family Blog (includes audio link): Two philosophers recently published an article in the Journal of Medical Ethics promoting the idea of, “after-birth abortion.” Dr. Robert P. George helps us understand the logical implications of what we used to call, “infanticide” and how it reveals the necessary logical implications of the abortion industry itself.

For most of her adult life, Judy has been counseling young women to choose life over abortion, caring for them during their pregnancy, and loving their children once born.
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday: Resources for Every Person to Celebrate Life | Family Policy Council of WV
Engage Family Minute Blog: This Sunday is the “Sanctity of Human Life Sunday” across the nation. It marks the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the day America began legalizing killing our unborn. Since that day more than 50,000,000 unborn children have been murdered “legally” on American soil.
State of the Family Address at (includes audio): My Fellow West Virginians, Tradition, as well as our state constitution, requires that the Governor of the State of West Virginia give an address at the commencement of the regular session of the legislature, “of the condition of the state.”
The Charleston Gazette: Jeremy Dys, president of the conservative values group Family Policy Council, said he had “grave concerns” about the anti-bullying measure. Dys said it “unconstitutionally limits free speech” and gives “unbridled authority” to teachers to crack down on students who speak out against homosexuality.
Engage Family Minute: Jordan Lorence, senior vice-president with the Alliance Defense Fund, has been the chief litigator on this case. Jordan wrote an instructive blog post on the topic (copied below), but also took the time to join me for a brief discussion over the phone. I hope you will listen to it – especially if you are a pastor or elder committed to planting churches in West Virginia – and share it with your friends. [audio at the link]
ven though no pending legislation exists and, earlier this year, the legislature rejected “anti-bullying” legislation, the state board of education is in the process of implementing an “anti-bullying” policy that has prompted serious concerns from groups concerned with First Amendment-protected freedoms.
“When you single out who is and who is not protected from bullies, that misses the point,” Dys said on Tuesday’s MetroNews Talkline. “Laws and school rules like this should govern objective action and not subjective characteristics of the victim.”
Family Policy Council of West Virginia: Schools should prohibit bullying for any reason. Rules against bullying ought to apply equally and fairly to all. Bullying is defined by a person’s actions, not by the status of his victim. Singling out who is and who is not protected from bullies misses the point.
Jeremy Dys at Engage Family Minute: I cannot think of a single pastor that I know who would answer that question with any answer but, “Christ himself.” Yet, that does not seem to be the way the IRS and some politicians view it . . . To that end, let me commend to you the work of the Alliance Defense Fund and www.PulpitFreedom.org. On Sunday, October 2, 2011 – just 2 days, providentially, before West Virginia’s special election for governor – the Alliance Defense Fund is encouraging pastors to participate in Pulpit Freedom Sunday.
Nathan A. Cherry at Engage Family Minute: I did find some common ground with Ms. Krasnow when she said “You can leave each other…But once you have children, you can’t leave the marriage… it becomes bigger than you.” The best thing, the things worth fighting for are always bigger than we are. Anything smaller than us is not worth our time.
Engage Family Blog: What the outcome will be for West Virginia is not dependent upon what happened in New York, but there are lessons to be learned. One lesson ought to be painfully clear: what we have said from the beginning, what we have continued to predict would be the case has come true. Now is not the time for West Virginia’s lawmakers to ignore the issue. It is the duty of every lawmaker in West Virginia to secure the right of all West Virginians to vote on the definition of marriage.
