As a healthcare professional, father, grandfather and Congressman, I strongly believe life starts at conception and support the sanctity of human life. More than 56 million innocent babies have been denied the right to life since the tragic and injudicious Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade more than forty years ago.
It’s time for the United States Congress to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves and pass permanent federal legislation that will protect the most innocent of lives. I am a proud cosponsor of H.R. 426, the Sanctity of Human Life Act, which protects life from conception with no exceptions.
Additionally, under no circumstances should American taxpayers be responsible for footing the bill for ending a precious life before it begins. However, thanks to Obamacare, some Americans could end up paying for abortion services, possibly without their knowledge. I support banning all federal funding for abortions and have supported H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act, to prevent this.
