Senator Hawley Commends Missourians Participating in March for Life

Friday, January 18, 2019

U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) issued a statement in support of Missourians who traveled to Washington, D.C., today to participate in the 46th Annual March for Life. The group of nearly 3,000 Missourians represented all ages, from high schoolers to retirees and came from all over the state including Cape Girardeau, Jefferson City, Kansas City, Sedalia and St. Louis.

“It’s incredible to see people of all ages and backgrounds, from Missouri and across the country, who have made the trek to our nation’s capital to speak their hearts, their minds, their faith – to tell their elected leaders that this nation was founded on the dignity of every person and that every life is worth fighting for,” said Senator Hawley. “I am proud to stand for the right to life. Always.”

Now the nation’s youngest U.S. Senator, Hawley was sworn into office earlier this month and has already taken steps to fight for the pro-life values the people of Missouri sent him to Washington to protect.

Senator Hawley is the co-sponsor of the Child Interstate Abortion Notification; the Protect Funding for Women’s Health Care Act; the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act; and the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2019.

Additionally, Senator Hawley has signed onto a letter by Senator Steve Daines (R-Mont.), encouraging President Trump to veto any attempts to undermine current abortion policy.
