Luetkemeyer Fights For The Rights Of The Unborn

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-9) today issued the following statement regarding tomorrow's anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's January 22, 1973, decision legalizing abortion:

"I have consistently and very publicly fought for the rights of the unborn for many years and I firmly believe that all human life is significant and deserves to be treated with the highest dignity and respect. I will continue to support legislation that protects the unborn and will vigorously oppose measures that either expand abortion or allow taxpayer dollars to be used for abortions."

Luetkemeyer is a proud co-sponsor of a number of important pieces of pro-life legislation, including H.R.634, the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, introduced by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-FL, which would prohibit the taking of a minor across state lines for an abortion in order to avoid parental notification and consent laws, as well as H.R.649, the Ultrasound Informed Consent Act, introduced by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH, which would ensure that women seeking an abortion receive an ultrasound and the opportunity to review the ultrasound before consenting to terminating the pregnancy.
