Rubio, Hinson Celebrate Bill Protecting Rights of Pregnant Students Passing the House

Jan 18, 2024 | Press Releases

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Pregnant Students Rights Act, led by U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Representative Ashley Hinson (R-IA). The bill would protect pregnant students and their babies by strengthening existing requirements for higher education institutions to publicly disclose the rights and resources available to help mothers carry their babies to term. The bill now heads to the Senate.

  • “Pregnant college students should never feel like abortion is their only option. The Republican-led House took a huge step in empowering women to choose life by passing this legislation. I encourage my Senate colleagues to follow suit and work to ensure young women are aware of all the resources available to them and their babies while pursuing their education.”  – Senator Rubio
  • “Pregnant women on college campuses should never be pressured into having an abortion, they should be surrounded with support and empowered to continue their education and their pregnancy. Women who choose to complete their studies while pregnant should be an inspiration to us all, and I find it sad that Democrats are so dug in on the pro-abortion agenda that they would oppose providing pregnant women on college campuses with resources and information about available protections under Title IX. This life-affirming legislation will help save moms and babies and is a vital step toward creating a culture of life in this country.” – Congresswoman Hinson
