Advocate Rachel’s Letter to the Editor Published in the Falls Church News-Press

Young Voices Advocate Rachel Burger was published in the Falls Church News-Press about Virginia’s gay marriage ban.

If Virginia recognizes these benefits associated with marriage – a right as defined in Meyer v. Nebraska – then let these consenting adults marry for love. I agree with Virginia Solicitor General Stuart Raphael: Upholding the gay marriage ban would force the state to stand on the wrong side of history. I hope to be a member of the first Southern state to legalize gay marriage in the coming weeks.

Advocate Akil Published in the Daily Caller on Iran

Young Voices Advocate Akil Allenye was published in The Daily Caller about what we can and can’t learn from past mistakes when it comes to Iran.

This threat-perception problem is not academic; thousands of human lives hang in the balance. We will solve it, and avert the misguided conflicts it produces, only when America’s foreign policy mavens learn that no two wars or enemies are identical, and stop trying to navigate the 21st century with a map from 1938.

Advocate Rachel Published in Communities Digital News

Young Voices Advocate Rachel Burger was published in Communities Digital News about why abortion rates are at an all-time low.

In a free society, communities thrive because of smart personal decisions. At the heart of the declining pregnancy rate are women making better decisions for themselves and for their bodies. Some are abstaining from sex. More are practicing safe sex. And young people are developing a culture where personal responsibility is at the core of the most private of decisions.

Young people are being smarter about their sex lives, benefiting millions of taxpayers and moral crusaders. They should be applauded for the personal decisions that they’ve made—without government coercion of any kind.
