McMorris Rodgers Votes for Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 19, 2018) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 4712, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act:

“As tens of thousands of Americans march in D.C. today to celebrate the sanctity of life, I’m proud that the House took action to protect human life with the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act. This legislation affirms that every human life deserves the God-given chance to reach their full potential.

“All life is worthy of our protection, and as representatives of the people, it is our responsibility to make sure our laws reflect that. I would like to thank Rep. Marsha Blackburn for her leadership on this bill, and I’m grateful to all our members who came together to stand with the pro-life generation today.”

Note: Today, before the 45th annual March For Life, the Congresswoman delivered a message of unity to the pro-life community. Click here to watch.

“Every year, when I see tens of thousands of young people, moms, dads, religious leaders and more who march to the Supreme Court, I am amazed at the thought that everyone has a story to share. A story that defines who they are and why they are here.”

“For me, as a pro-life mom of three, part of my story is with my oldest son, Cole, who was born with that extra 21st chromosome. When my husband and I received that news, it wasn’t what we expected. We were given a long list of challenges and chances of heartache.”

“Now, 10 years later, Cole is working his way through the fifth grade. He lights up a room. People are drawn to him. He is in Cub Scouts and plays sports. Last weekend, he scored 3 points in his basketball game. He is living a life full of huge potential.”

“Stories like my family’s of kids beating the odds and [reminds] us that all life is a precious gift. Every story is an opportunity for the pro-life movement to grow.”
