My Work for the Pro-Life Cause
There is no issue more sacred to me than life. If we as a nation cannot protect unborn babies, I fear for the future of our country.
As a member of the Pro-Life Caucus and a staunch supporter of legislation to protect the rights of the unborn, please know that I am doing everything in my power to fight to ensure that Planned Parenthood no longer receives a penny of taxpayer money.
Here are some steps I’ve taken to achieve that goal in the 114th Congress:
H. Res. 399: Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that the House should consider legislation to protect traditional marriage and prevent taxpayer funding of abortion.
H.R. 3429: The Pro-LIFE Act, which would prohibit the sale of baby parts for money or any other item of value.
H.R. 3134: The Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, which would defund Planned Parenthood unless the organization certifies that it will not perform or provide funding to clinics that perform abortion or traffic human body parts. This bill will be voted on this week and you can count on me to vote for it.
H.R. 217: The Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, which would prohibit Title X grants from going to abortion providers.
H.R. 3504: The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would make a failure to provide standard medical care to an abortion survivor a federal crime. If an effort is made to kill an abortion survivor, stronger penalties would apply. This bill will also be voted on this week and you can count on me to vote for it.
July 24, 2015: Letter to Speaker Boehner asking for a vote on defunding Planned Parenthood before the August recess started.
July 29, 2015: Letter to House leadership asking for an immediate investigation into Planned Parenthood's trafficking of baby parts as well as a special conference among all House Republicans to discuss how best to address Planned Parenthood's atrocities. The letter also states a resolve not to vote for any funding resolution--an appropriations bill, an omnibus package, or continuing resolution--that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood, including mandatory funding streams.
July 30, 2015: Letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking her to appoint an independent counsel to investigate the criminal activities highlighted in the videos detailing Planned Parenthood's altering of abortion procedures and selling of baby parts.
July 30, 2015: Letter to Senate Majority Leader McConnell, asking the Senate to consider the pro-life legislation the House has already passed.
On July 28, 2015, I spoke at the #WomenBetrayed rally at the Capitol calling on House leadership to move legislation to defund Planned Parenthood. It was great to see so many people in front of the Capitol defending the rights of the unborn.
H.R. 7: No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which would prohibit the use of federal funds for abortion or health plans that cover abortion.
H.R. 596: Obamacare Repeal, which would totally repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
H.R. 36: Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would prohibit the abortion of unborn children at 20 weeks after fertilization or later.
H.R. 3134: Defund Planned Parenthood Act, which would prohibit Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal funds for one year.
H.R. 3504: Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would require health care practitioners to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.
