Please WRITE or CALL the following Senators and Representatives in the Georgia legislature to ask them to SUPPORT and FUND the Positive Alternatives for Pregnancy and Parenting Grant Program.
This Positive Alternatives grant program has two legislative parts:
1. Senate Bill 308 (Sponsored by Senator Renee Unterman) establishes the grant program.
2. The House and Senate Appropriations committees will fund the grant through the Georgia budget.
Please WRITE or CALL these legislators and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 308 and FUND the Positive Alternatives for Pregnancy and Parenting Grant Program with $2million so that pro-pregnancy and pro-childbirth voices impact the decisions of pregnant women in our Georgia. The Positive Alternatives grant program will give supplemental funding to existing non-profits that already provide FREE pregnancy support services and that have a primary mission to encourage pregnant women to bring their children to term.
The grant program specifically prohibits funds from being used by an entity that performs, refers for, or encourages abortion. GLA supports and is intricately involved in this legislation to ensure it successfully assists pro-life efforts like similar programs in Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Oklahoma – just to name a few.
