Human life is a gift that should be cherished and protected. I believe that we, as a nation, should do everything in our power to preserve innocent human life. In 1973, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade that a woman’s right to have an abortion is constitutionally protected. I strongly disagree with this ruling.
Throughout my time in Congress, I have and will continue to support pro-life values and ideals. I strongly believe that it is our moral and ethical duty to protect the dignity of human life, particularly when it comes to the unborn.
In addition, I believe that it is wholly irresponsible for the federal government to use any taxpayer dollars for abortions, and I have routinely cosponsored legislation to create a permanent, government-wide prohibition of taxpayer funding for abortion.
