Life is precious but too often taken for granted.
We should always respect those facing difficult and heartbreaking decisions due to rape, incest, or danger to the life of the mother. This includes providing practical alternatives for women facing an unplanned pregnancy.
My firm belief is that our government has a sacred duty to protect life, including the unborn. This is why I serve on the Bipartisan Congressional Pro-Life Caucus and the Congressional Prayer Caucus.
In 2017, I supported several legislative initiatives to protect the Right to Life:
In January 2017, as pro-life supporters came to Washington, I sent a letter to President Trump outlining shared pro-life priorities for Congress and the Administration:
My letter was co-led by Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-04) and Chairman Diane Black (TN-06) and was co-signed by nearly 150 additional Members of Congress.
As healthcare reform legislation was debated on Capitol Hill in March, I joined with fellow leaders of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus for a White House meeting with Vice President Mike Pence to review legislative procedures to preserve pro-life provisions in the American Health Care Act. In June, I met with House Speaker Paul Ryan to discuss the importance of keeping pro-life protections in the final version of healthcare reform.
My commitment is to support legislation which protects the right to life, provides an appropriate safety net for those in need, and upholds every American’s right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
