The Sanctity of Life

 The Family Policy Institute of Washington (FPIW) believes life is sacred and should be protected at every opportunity.  We believe from the moment of fertilization to the moment of natural death, human life is intrinsically and eternally significant.  We believe that comfort, cost, convenience, mental capacity, or the inability to comply with societal expectations of what people should be able to do is never a justification for terminating a life that would otherwise continue to live. (read more...)

We believe that religious observance and faith in God have an overwhelmingly positive impact on society.  Just as marriage has a foundational effect on the flourishing of family life, religious observance has a similar effect on community and national life.  The fostering of religious observance within a framework of religious freedom is a hallmark of our culture as shaped by our Founding Fathers.  In the United States, the Judeo-Christian worldview has provided a sound basis for the flourishing of our national culture and our political system. FPIW, in the tradition of our Founding Fathers, works to encourage the free worship of God as a great good for individuals, couples, families, communities and the nation. (read more...)
