Washington’s Abortion Directive: Political Posturing or Necessary Affirmation?
Conservative Ladies of Washington Blog

*By Julie Barrett, Founder, Conservative Ladies of America On Tuesday, Washington Governor, Jay Inslee, issued a directive to the Board of Health (BOH) to affirm that hospitals in Washington are legally required to provide emergency abortion services. When contacted on Tuesday by the Seattle Times for comment, I had not yet heard about or read the directive released just hours before. I was confused as this is already law and there isn’t a need to “affirm” it. The only reason to do so would be to “virtue signal” during an election year…which is exactly what this is, in my opinion ..read more

Cultural Competency Diversity Equity and Inclusion, Not Academic Excellence *By Joy Gjersvold If it seems as though the focus of public education in Washington has shifted away from academic excellence, you aren’t imagining things. As a former public education teacher who left the profession in 2004, I have often wondered how we got so far off track. While I observed slight changes–a shift in focus even 20 years ago–I couldn’t name it. I was a full-time mom and military spouse. While I voted and paid enough attention to politics to know what I did and didn’t support, I wasn’t as involved in ..read more

Future Voter Program in WA’s public schools

Parents will likely be hyper-aware this year as their high school students are engaging in “youth voter registration.” This is legal and was passed through the Washington legislature in 2018 in HB 1513 in an effort to address low youth voter turnout and encourage participation of youth in the election process. “HB 1513 established the opportunity for students to register to vote when they obtain their driver’s license from the Department of Licensing (DOL). In addition, it established the Future Voter Program (#FutureVoter), to be administered by the Secretary of State. This program allows 16 ..read more

New law protects abortion providers at the expense of patients

Washington democrats have not just legalized abortion, they’ve made it protected healthcare for minor children (of no minimum age), they’ve removed all cost sharing (so either Medicaid pays or your insurance company foots the entirety of the bill), they’re forcing health care facilities to provide abortion or be shut down and they’re even trying to make it difficult for pro life medical centers to offer ultra sound services to expectant mothers. Just when you think they’ve taken the abortion cause about as far as they can, radical left democrats say, “hold my beer.” House Bill 2115 rec ..read more

*Guest post by CLW Member and Washington Public School Teacher I want to start out this column by first saying that I am supportive of good teachers. I acknowledge all the awesome teachers in WA and around the country who are doing their best to try and give students in their classes a great education when the higher ups who have not been in the classroom in years are dictating how and what these good teachers are supposed to teach to their students. Most of these teachers, myself included, have been teaching 10, 15, 20+ years and have witnessed the decline of our educational system, especial ..read more

By Joy Gjersvold, CLW Programs Director Do you know that the State Board of Education in Washington state thinks that performance-based pathways or competency-based education, also known as Mastery Based Learning (MBE), is a good option for YOUR child? No matter what they call it, do you know that performance-/competency-based learning has NOTHING to do with academic excellence? Do you know that MBE was one of the last steps in states like Oregon before they just did away with graduation standards altogether? ‼️PRO TIP:  When a piece of legislation or a policy in education includes the ..read more

Week 4 is sure to be another game of “legislative whack-a-mole.” Wednesday is session cutoff, so the committees will be working fast and furiously to move their favored bills out of the house of origin. There will be fewer public hearings as the committees focus on executive sessions, which is where they discuss bill that have had hearings and vote them out of committee. Please be sure to bookmark our Legislative Action Center and check back often for new calls to action. The calls to action will be shifting as many bills enter a new stage in the legislative process. Please consider contribu ..read more
