I am 100% pro-life. As a doctor, I know that life begins at conception. And as an American, I know it is the duty of our government to protect the right to life. I will fight to protect every unborn child.
During my time in Congress, I have introduced and cosponsored several pro-life bills including the Protect Life Act, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, and the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act. I also strongly support a Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which would confirm in law that an unborn child is a person entitled to the right to life.
I strongly oppose any federal funding of abortion and will attempt to stop the flow of tax dollars to groups who perform or advocate for abortion. I have been leading the fight to prohibit all taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider and introduced legislation to do so. I will continue to bring this legislation up for a vote as opportunities on the Senate floor arise.
