Congressman Latta Votes to Stop Government-Funded Abortions Under Obamacare

Location: Washington, DC

On Friday, Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) cast his first pro-life vote of the 112th Congress; he voted in support of the Protect Life Act during a meeting of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health.

The bill would prevent federal funding of abortion or abortion coverage in the Democrat passed health care law -- the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Additionally, the bill also provides conscience protections for health care professionals who do not participate in providing abortions.

"One of the reasons I opposed the health care law last year was because the bill did not protect the sanctity of life," said Congressman Bob Latta.

In order to ensure funding restrictions on abortions, Congress must pass permanent statutory language defending the rights of the unborn.
