Washington, January 22, 2021 | comments

On the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) reaffirmed his full support of protecting the lives of the unborn.

“Every human life is precious,” said Mullin.  “As a father of six, I cannot express enough how precious the lives of innocent children are. From the moment of conception, each child is worthy of life and protection from harm. In the 117th Congress, I will continue in my work to safeguard the rights of the unborn. As Americans, we have the moral, ethical, and personal responsibility to be the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.”

Mullin is a cosponsor of several bills that reaffirm his commitment to pro-life policies including:

H.Res.60 - Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that January 22, 2021, be formally acknowledged as "National Sanctity of Life Day."

H.Res.58 - Memorializing the unborn by lowering the United States flag to half-staff on the 22d day of January each year.

H.R. 380 - Pregnant Women Health and Safety Act, which would require abortion providers to have admitting privileges to a local hospital and to adhere to basic safety standards.

H.R. 381 - Abortion Is Not Health Care Act, which ends the Internal Revenue Service’s treatment of out-of-pocket abortion costs as a medical expense.

H.R. 188 - Women’s Public Health and Safety Act, which gives states the freedom to defund Planned Parenthood through Medicaid.

H.R. 243 - Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, which prohibits the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from awarding family planning grants to entities that either perform abortions or entities which fund abortions elsewhere.

Mullin was also a cosponsor of the following bills in the 116th Congress and will cosponsor them again once they are introduced in the 117th Congress:

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires appropriate medical care for children who survive abortion procedures and imposes strong criminal penalties for failure to provide such care.

The Defund Planned Parenthood Act, which prohibits, for a one-year period, Planned Parenthood from accessing any federal mandatory or discretionary funds and authorizes $235 million to be reallocated to the thousands of comprehensive community health centers which do not perform abortions.

The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which would make the Hyde Amendment and other current abortion funding prohibitions permanent and government-wide, and it would ensure the Affordable Care Act (ACA) faithfully conforms to the Hyde Amendment.
