Jul 15, 2022 | Press Releases

In celebration of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) introduced a bill to designate June as the “Month of Life.” 

  • “The overturning of Roe v. Wade was a historic milestone for the entire pro-life movement. Designating June as the ‘Month of Life’ would celebrate this major victory and the Supreme Court’s decision to protect our nation’s most vulnerable.” – Senator Rubio 
  • “Protecting life and the most vulnerable among us is the most important charge of any society, and the recent landmark decision by the Supreme Court upholds that responsibility. My effort to mark June as the ‘Month of Life’ celebrates this major victory for the pro-life movement, one that will pave a path for countless innocent lives to be saved.” – Senator Ernst

Senators Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Roger Wicker (R-MS), John Thune (R-SD), Rick Scott (R-FL), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Steve Daines (R-MT), Josh Hawley (R-MO), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK) are also cosponsors.
Congresswoman Carol Miller (R-WV) introduced similar legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives. March for Life and Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee support the effort.
