We’ll Keep Marching for Life

Last week marked 49 years since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that has taken over 60 million innocent lives since its ruling in 1973. This anniversary reminds us that the fight for life is far from over and that we must use our voice to speak out louder than ever before.

 

The United States was built on the right to life. Our Founding Fathers wrote in the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights: the Right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Every person, born or unborn, is entitled to these rights.

 

As a father of six, including three who are adopted, this is incredibly personal to me. 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.

 

As Democrats in Congress continue to push their abortion-on-demand agenda, I will continue in my work to safeguard the rights of the unborn. Their abortion-on-demand bill, the Women’s Health Protection Act, goes beyond Roe v. Wade and overrides existing pro-life laws at the state and federal levels that protect both babies and mothers. It also abolishes laws preventing late-term abortions. Further, they have rejected Republicans' Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act more than 80 times.

 

I have sponsored or cosponsored several other bills that reaffirm my full support in protecting the lives of the unborn. The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, Defund Planned Parenthood Act, and Abortion is not Health Care Act are amongst this list. My voting record has earned me an A+ rating on Susan B. Anthony List’s Scorecard for 2021.

 

Thousands came to Washington last week to march in support of the unborn and hundreds of Oklahomans marched in Oklahoma City. I am grateful for those who are in this fight with me. I pray that this is the year the Roe v. Wade decision will be overturned. But until then, we’ll keep marching for life.
