Pro-Life

I am fighting to protect pro-life values in our country. I promised that I would be a fearless pro-life advocate throughout my public service, and I will keep my word to those who elected me. 

In Congress, I have already taken bold actions to advance pro-life policies. After being sworn in, the first caucus I joined was the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, with the primary objective of preserving the sanctity of life. Also, I have co-sponsored significant, commonsense pro-life bills that protect the unborn. Specifically, I co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1080), which prohibits any person from performing an abortion on an unborn child who is 20 weeks or older. 

Additionally, I co-sponsored the Defund Planned Parenthood Act (H.R. 541), a bill that prohibits Planned Parenthood from accessing any federal mandatory or discretionary funds for one year. The bill also reallocates more than nearly $250 million to other community health centers that do not perform abortions. 

We must never waver in our commitment to defending the most vulnerable lives among us – the unborn. Many Americans are fighting against the abortion industry to protect life. I am confident that life will win.
