The top five concerns the Family Policy Alliance had with the Violence Against Women’s Act that was included in the $1.5 trillion spending bill supported by Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst.

  1. VAWA allows biological men into women’s shelters.Women seeking protection, especially from male abusers, should not be forced to share intimate spaces with men.
  2. VAWA includes Equality Act language.The bill should be focused on women, but instead includes language that allows biological men to claim they are women throughout the bill.
  3. VAWA gives money to Planned Parenthood.
    The nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, received VAWA grant funds in the past and will easily receive funds under the current legislation.
  4. VAWA creates a new grant of $8 million for LGBT issues.This bill should focus solely on its original purpose–to protect biological women.
  5. VAWA equates fathers encouraging their wife or girlfriend to choose life with domestic violence.The bill implies that men who discourage their partner from having an abortion commit “reproductive coercion,” and puts pro-life fathers on par with domestic abusers.
