Defending the Unborn

I am unapologetically pro-life, and I have repeatedly spoken out in the House of Representatives regarding my strong opposition to abortion.

I believe that the miracle of human life begins at conception, and I also believe that I have an obligation to do everything I can to fight for the unborn and to prevent taxpayer money from funding abortions. I proudly cosponsored several pro-life bills throughout my time in Congress.

As a pro-life advocate, I support advancing measures that increase legal protections for the unborn. Although there are many pressing issues facing our country, we must never fail to defend unborn children who cannot speak for themselves.
