Issue Position: Protecting Life

Issue Position

Date: Jan. 1, 2016
Location: Washington, DC
Issues: Abortion

I am 100% pro-life and believe whole-heartedly that life begins at conception. The rights of the unborn sadly have been under attack by liberals, but I am committed to fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves. In 2013 and 2015 I co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, both of which passed the House in hopes of protecting the precious gift of life.

Last year we saw the horrific and heartbreaking videos in which abortion supporters openly discussed the sale of infant body parts. I took action because it is unacceptable, immoral, and must be stopped. I helped co-author and supported legislation preventing any taxpayer dollars from going to organizations that perform abortion services. The assault on the unborn is something that I do not take lightly and will not stand for, which is why I have promised Missourians to always fight for the unborn and stand for the right to life.

I have been fortunate to receive endorsements from Missouri Right to Life, the National Right to Life PAC, a 100% rating from the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a 100% rating from the Christian Coalition of America, and a 100% rating from the Family Research Council.
