The Montana Family Foundation is a non-profit, research and education organization dedicated to supporting, protecting and strengthening Montana families.
Statement of Principles
- The breakdown of the family is one of the most serious moral, social and political crises facing our state and nation.
- The family is a fundamental institution in a civil society and government should promote and protect its formation and well being.
- The family is defined as people who are related by blood, marriage or adoption and should be founded on a life-long marriage of one man and one woman, which creates the best environment in which to raise children.
- The principles, in which America’s founding is rooted, support strong and stable families. As stated in the Declaration of Independence, those principles include that American government is derived from the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,” that all people are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights” and that government’s primary responsibility is to “secure these Rights.”
- Human life is sacred from conception to natural death and must be protected by government.
- An informed and politically active citizenry is the best means for shaping pro-family public policy.
