The issues discussed during the three forthcoming Presidential debates will likely focus on the economy, public health, and defense and foreign policy.
But, the family is the cornerstone of American life and deserves its own Presidential debate.
And, if we don't act fast, issues like marriage, the right to life, parental rights in education and health, population control and declining fertility will be overlooked entirely or treated as an afterthought.
That's why LifeSite and the Ruth Institute are partnering on this important appeal.
Please SIGN our petition which urges the Commission on Presidential Debates to schedule a debate which focuses solely on family issues.
The purpose of the Presidential debates is to allow voters to witness an interchange between the candidates and to determine their position on issues which will impact their lives, as well as their rationale for holding those positions.
Of course, the economy, public health and foreign policy are all serious matters, but family breakdown and the over-sexualization of society create massive problems that affect the economy, the criminal justice system, public health, and even national defense.
Everything begins with the family. Everything depends on the family. It impacts every area of life.
A strong economy depends on the next generation learning the virtues of hard work and discipline in the family. Strong national defense requires individuals who are willing to sacrifice for their families, even more than the national interest.
And, the decline of the family in America’s cities has led to spiraling crime rates and urban unrest.
Simply put, family issues are key to the success or failure of the country.
And, therefore, the family must be a major focus of the debates.
We need to put the focus where it belongs. We need one debate exclusively on what the candidates will do to support the family.
Thank you for SIGNING this petition which urges the U.S. Commission on Presidential Debates and the candidates, themselves, to agree to a fourth debate focusing solely on family issues.
