One Nation Is Putting Faith and Families First – With Incredible Results

The tenants of the left’s progressive agenda include mass immigration, access to abortion-on-demand, and the eradication of family values on a global scale.

They have pushed abortion as a “right” for every woman on the planet in an effort to stifle the growth of traditional families and encourage population control and have put the needs of immigrants before those of their own citizens.

Now one nation is fighting back to encourage and support traditional families – and it is making a difference.

Just like in the U.S. and multiple other countries across the globe, Hungary has seen skyrocketing divorce rates, married couples waiting longer to start families, and of course, population decline due to abortion.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is working with officials to consult with Hungarian citizens on where the government can create or improve programs that benefit families.

This will include a survey program asking for input on what the needs of young couples are in terms of daycare services, family leave, flexibility with their jobs, and housing.

And they specifically want to encourage couples to have more children.

The Hungarian government wants to “eschews mass migration in favor of homegrown babies,” according to LifeSite News – and the initial approach and brainstorming of ideas has already had a positive impact.

The results have been amazing thus far.  Since the Prime Minister took office in 2010, abortions have dropped by more than a third.

The divorce rate has dropped significantly, and young couples are choosing to marry and start families at a much higher rate than a decade ago.

Hungarian families are receiving help to purchase homes, getting more tax breaks – especially for families with four or more children who have to pay little or no income tax – and childcare is becoming more affordable and available.

Prime Minister Orbán is certainly going against the grain of what other European nations are doing for families.

He is opposed to open borders and insistent on putting the nation’s citizens first, helping families in his own country grow and become stable.

In a speech this past summer, Orbán expressed his disapproval of the approach that other Central European nations are taking, addressing religious freedom, mass immigration, and the importance of providing a stable foundation for the nation’s children.

“The first is that every European country has the right to defend its Christian culture, and the right to reject the ideology of multiculturalism. 

Our second tenet is that every country has the right to defend the traditional family model, and is entitled to assert that every child has the right to a mother and a father,” according to LifeSite News.

He also addressed the right of European nations to protect and defend their borders and reject immigration, provide economic security for their citizens, and to reject a globalist agenda that robs nations of their individual histories and cultures.

The Prime Minister reflected on past governments of Hungary which created a need for many young people to move out of the country to find work, leaving local villages with low populations and no room for growth.

The programs are most beneficial to large poor or middle-class families, but officials say there is room for improvement in encouraging young professionals to settle down in their hometowns and start families.

So far, university students and young families are pleased with the direction the country is headed in, but also say there needs to be more of a direct link between the church and Hungarian families.

One young university student suggested that “there is still an obvious link that’s being neglected between faith and families.  The largest and healthiest families in my classes were all practicing Christians, and most of those Catholic; I would advise him to integrate the government’s action with that of the Church,” reports LifeSite News.

One thing is clear – the Hungarian government recognizes that the strength of a nation is built on the health and stability of its families and traditional values rooted in the Christian faith.

By making it easier for families to balance responsibilities at work and home, promoting the health and welfare of children, and denouncing abortion, Hungary could teach a thing or two to the rest of the European Union.
