Pro-Life and Family Values

As a mother of four children, I believe that human life begins at conception, and I will always defend the right to life. Every human being has inherent value and dignity regardless of their stage of development, ability, age, gender, or race.

At least 60 million children have been lost to abortion since Roe v. Wade was decided, many of whom were aborted by taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood. I have advocated for all appropriations bills to include the Hyde Amendment and other historic protections to prevent your tax dollars from funding abortion.

I have supported more than a dozen other bills to protect life. I cosponsored the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act to ensure federal funds aren’t being used to pay for abortions. I cosponsored the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act led by Rep. Chris Smith to prohibit abortion when the unborn child is 20 weeks or older. I cosponsored the Defund Planned Parenthood Act to prohibit Planned Parenthood from accessing any federal mandatory or discretionary funds that are utilized to perform abortions. I cosponsored the Life at Conception Act to protect the unborn.

Additionally, I believe that strong families are the foundation of American society, and I oppose efforts to redefine marriage as anything other than the union of one man and one woman. I am fighting to protect families from extremists telling our children that it's ok for them to get a sex change and take puberty blocking drugs. It is wrong to sacrifice the safety and wellbeing of our children on the altar of radical leftist ideology.

As a member of the Values Action Team, I fight for pro-family legislation that promotes adoption, reduces tax burdens on working families, improves school choice, and respects the right to life.
