Empowering Women: America First Policy Institute Unveils Life Agenda, Including Abortion Resources

EXCLUSIVE: The America First Policy Institute (AFPI) is set to unveil its H.O.P.E. agenda on Thursday, aiming to empower women and provide support in challenging situations such as unexpected pregnancies, fertility issues, adoption, and more. This initiative includes mental health resources to assist women in need.

The introduction of AFPI’s H.O.P.E. agenda follows recent statements by the presumptive Republican nominee, emphasizing that the abortion issue should be decided at the state level. The nominee expressed support for in vitro fertilization (IVF) and endorsed states’ rights to establish their own abortion laws with exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and maternal life.

According to Trump, states should determine their abortion laws through voting or legislation, respecting the will of the people and acknowledging potential variations among states in terms of regulations.

The H.O.P.E. agenda, as obtained by Fox News Digital, comprises a 20-point plan focused on empowering women in various aspects of motherhood, adoption, foster care, fertility treatments, and reducing the number of abortions. It aims to offer support in challenging situations, including mental health needs.

The acronym “H.O.P.E.” represents different pillars of the agenda:

  • “H” for “Health” ensuring comprehensive healthcare for women and babies throughout pregnancy, including mental health support and access to IVF treatments.
  • “O” for “Opportunity” providing necessary support for women.
  • “P” for “Prosperity” granting access to essential resources like childcare assistance.
  • “E” for “Empowerment” assuring financial responsibility from fathers and more.

The agenda proposes measures such as awarding child support to expectant mothers, changing tax laws to benefit mothers, addressing legal and financial obstacles in adoption and foster care, enhancing healthcare access, supporting pregnancy resource centers, and offering counseling before abortions.

Furthermore, the plan mandates companies covering abortion costs to extend similar coverage for pro-family initiatives like infertility treatments or adoption. It also upholds exceptions to abortion bans for specific cases and emphasizes providing life-saving care for babies born alive.

Brooke Rollins, President and CEO of AFPI, highlighted the significance of supporting women, children, and prospective parents through these initiatives, emphasizing a commitment to prioritizing pro-life and pro-family principles.

AFPI, a non-profit research institute, is dedicated to advocating for policies that prioritize the American people. The organization, led by former senior Trump administration officials, aims to provide comprehensive support for women, children, and families, acknowledging the uniqueness of each situation.

As the 2024 presidential election approaches, the issue of abortion remains a key concern for voters. The recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade has reignited discussions on state-level abortion regulations.
