I am a pro-life advocate. Life begins at conception and the protection of life ought to begin at conception as well. The current system of infanticide can no longer be tolerated under any legal or scientific standard.
Babies born as early as 20 weeks gestational age have gone on to be healthy, normal children. But it is perfectly legal to have an on-demand abortion until 26 weeks gestational age. These children, who would be able to survive outside the womb, are being brutally murdered simply based upon their arbitrary location in their mother’s womb. This is not a right or left issue, this is an American Epidemic. The U.S. is 1 of only 7 countries worldwide that allow abortions after 20 weeks, and 75% of Americans want new limits on abortion.
From a legal perspective, Roe vs. Wade was based upon the belief that 26-week old babies, who could not survive outside the womb were not human. Current science disagrees even with the most die-hard abortion advocate. Late-term abortions do not protect someone’s rights, rather they strip the most innocent of us from the one right they possess, the right to life.
I will fight tirelessly to advocate for the rights of the unborn in the halls of the powerful. Their voices will not be silenced in Washington.
