Conservative Lawmakers Must Make Post-Roe America Safe for Families

What kind of country will post-Roe America be? Conservative lawmakers have a duty to answer that question with pro-family policies that protect the unborn, support the struggling, and encourage the men and women working hard to raise our future generations….

I’m starting off the 118th Congress by reintroducing the Providing for Life Act to do just that. It is a comprehensive pro-life, pro-family plan for post-Roe America, which would expand the Child Tax Credit; strengthen existing federal programs like Child Support Enforcement and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); and lend greater aid to institutions of civil society that already care for families in their local communities, such as pregnancy resource centers.

There are other proposals on the table, too, like my plan to let parents advance their own Social Security benefits to pay for leave during that crucial time when welcoming a new baby to the family. I also have a bill to establish a national motherhood mentoring initiative…. [And] I am pushing to protect the Title IX rights of pregnant college students and establish a federal clearinghouse of non-abortive resources for young mothers.

Finally, our work is far from finished when it comes to the issue of abortion…. This is not what the elite political consultants want to hear. They, along with some politicians in my own party, are encouraging lawmakers to run away from the issue. But unborn babies…have no voice of their own to protest the violation of their right to life, so we must be their voice.

In the end, the cause of life will only triumph if conservative policymakers stand by their principles…. They should remember that it is their sacred duty to defend the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of all Americans—from babies in the womb to new moms and everyone in between. That is not a duty to be abandoned lightly.
