WASHINGTON, D.C. – Family Research Council Action (FRC Action), the legislative arm of Family Research Council, announced today its “True Blue” award winners for the Second Session of the 117th Congress. The annual award recognizes the members of Congress who displayed unwavering commitment and support of faith, family, and freedom by voting 100% of the time with FRC Action. Last year, 138 Representatives and 21 Senators earned the award.
FRC Action President Tony Perkins made the following comments:
“In the first Congress to see a post-Roe nation, there is much to celebrate, especially for Members who have consistently --and repeatedly--stood for life in the face of a pro-abortion mob bent on intimidating Americans into their way of thinking. They also courageously stood strong against dangerous, freedom eroding laws like the Equality Act and (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act. Senators, in their Constitutional advice and consent role have stood strong against problematic Biden administration nominees such as now-FDA Commissioner Robert Califf and U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. Members of the House voted to protect women and girls from being forcibly drafted into combat military roles.
“We thank these members of Congress for defending faith, family, and freedom with their votes and their voices of leadership. They have voted to reject the overhaul our federal civil rights framework with radical gender ideology. In the post-Roe America, they have voted to protect the sanctity of human life for unborn babies in all 50 states. These members also voted to expand protections for conscience rights, reject legislation legitimizing recreational marijuana use, and fought the Department of Justice’s view of concerned parents as ‘terrorists.’
“Americans should be encouraged to know that they have so many members of Congress who, despite relentless attacks from the Left and the media, are standing strong for faith, family, and freedom,” concluded Perkins.
