Issue Position

Date: Jan. 1, 2014

Senator Pat Toomey is prolife and believes that all children should be welcomed into the world and protected by its laws.

While reasonable people may differ on the question of abortion rights, Sen. Toomey believes we should all be able to agree on policies that encourage adoption over abortion, that avoid taxpayer funding of abortions, and that allow parental involvement in decisions that involve minors. Sen. Toomey supports policies that further these important goals, including the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (S. 906), of which he is a co-sponsor.

Sen. Toomey also believes the tradition of marriage is ancient and sacred and should continue to be defined as between a man and a woman.
