Illuminating the Path of Life for All Expectant Mothers

As a father of six amazing children, three of whom came into our lives through the blessing of adoption, I could not be more proud to represent and reside in the most pro-life state in the nation. I applaud Governor Stitt and all of those who fought for us to get here. While we celebrate this victory, it’s impossible not to acknowledge the tragic reality of what lies on the other side of this debate. 

Our society must do better than offering expectant mothers cruel and inhumane ways to kill their children. For those who experience an unplanned pregnancy, it is shameful that many in America have led them to believe that abortion is the only choice.

As Christians, as parents, as neighbors, it’s necessary we assure expectant mothers that they are not alone and that this lie is just that: a lie and nothing else. The pro-life movement stands strongly in support of providing the resources necessary for mothers to embrace life.

This commitment is demonstrated by the more than 2,700 pregnancy care centers across the country that serve millions of people annually, offering services such as counseling, material assistance, care coordination, and housing support. There are also 3,000 adoption agencies across the United States working to find children a loving home. 

In the Second District alone, there’s a long list of centers that work day-in and day-out to serve expectant mothers, offering them hope for the future and a reason to believe in life. Examples of these centers include the Pregnancy Center of Bryan County, Agape Pregnancy Center in Okmulgee, and Compassion Women’s Center in Claremore, to name a few.

I couldn’t be more grateful for the Oklahomans who have made it their life’s mission to fight for life. While the country awaits the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court decision, we must continue to remind our loved ones and friends that there is support for those who need it. I believe every child is fearfully and wonderfully made by our Creator, and it’s an honor to support pro-life initiatives in Congress alongside so many who do the same across our state and our country.
