The Free to be Faithful® newsletter highlights important and relevant details on religious liberty issues that impact the rights of Christians to live faithfully.

In this issue, read about:

  • H.R. 8404, which was passed by Congress in December 2022 to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and to open the door to any future redefinitions of marriage.
  • Tactics the Biden administration is using to evade a long-standing federal law that prohibits using the mail to send abortion drugs.
  • How members of Congress are pushing back against a Department of Defense memo allowing department resources to be used for elective abortions.
