“Sweeter even than to have had the joy of children of my own has it been for me to help bring about a better state of things for mothers generally, so that their unborn little ones could not be willed away from them.”
Susan B. Anthony
There is no greater natural resource than the next generation of Americans. Protecting them is a sacred responsibility from which I will never back down, particularly from the bogus claim it is somehow a “war on women.”
As a mother, educator, and lawmaker, I have always been a vocal advocate for the most vulnerable. During my time in the state legislature I have been an outspoken, courageous voice for unborn babies and their mothers, proudly cosponsoring legislation signed by Utah Gov. Herbert that stops the brutality of abortion after 18 weeks. I am a staunch supporter of legislation to stop lethal discrimination against unborn children with Down syndrome, informed consent protections for women, and many other pro-life priorities.
I have a 100 percent pro-life voting record and have also supported:
- Humane care of an infant who survives an attempted abortion
- Requirements for practitioners to give women full information before providing any type of medical procedure, notably that medical abortion can be interrupted and may result in the baby’s survival
- Pain management for fetuses who feel pain
- Prohibiting medical practitioners from performing procedures on minor children without parental knowledge or consent
I have long supported the prohibition of abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or threat to the life of the mother. More recently, I have struggled with the first two exceptions, and I favor further consideration on those, including police reports of rapes and incest involving minors.
As a member of Congress, I will hit the ground running and stand up to the radical, for-profit abortion lobby in Washington. I will take every step I can to deny taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, an organization which has basically become a money-laundering scheme for pro-abortion candidates. I will join Sen. Ben Sasse to help pass the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires survivors of abortion to be treated with the same level of medical care expected for any other baby at the same gestational age. I am proud to carry the endorsement of the Susan B. Anthony List, one of the largest pro-life groups in America.
