100% pro-life. 100% of the time.
In 2009, Brian Calley sponsored HR 162, which memorializes Congress to explicitly exclude abortion coverage from any government health care plan that is developed. He also cosponsored HB 4212 which would prohibit partial birth abortions in Michigan.
Life is sacred and it should be protected at its beginning and at its natural end. Brian has consistently fought to defend the most vulnerable in our society. From the very moment of conception, a new life begins growing and developing. Our nation was founded on a very simple, yet profound premise, found in the Declaration of Independence.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Brian knows what it is like to hold a baby younger than 9 months gestation. Brian's son was born nearly two months early and spent 26 days in intensive care. Sitting day after day next to an incubator, watching a machine takes breaths for his son really puts things into perspective for Brian. Now, the newest addition to the Calley family - daughter Kara is now battling a serious heart condition.
Brian has never flip-flopped on the issue of life. In all previous elections for the State Legislature, Brian has proudly received the Michigan Right to Life PAC endorsement. He's the only person in the race with that accomplishment. (In his unsuccessful 2006 run for State Representative, Mike Trebesh failed to meet MI-RTL PAC criteria and was rejected for endorsement.)
