Rubio, Hinson Introduce Bill to Help Pregnant Mothers

Dec 13, 2023 | Press Releases

Last year, nearly 1.5 million children were born to single mothers. Many of these mothers cover costly medical expenses throughout the course of pregnancy, without support from their child’s biological father.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced the Supporting Healthy Pregnancy Act, a pro-life bill to ensure biological fathers are equally involved in supporting a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

  • “Pro-life Americans must stand behind mothers, celebrating and providing for life at every stage. Families are the building blocks of society. Our communities should help mothers as they nurture and raise children, while also holding fathers accountable to stay involved in their child’s development.” – Senator Rubio

U.S. Representative Ashley Hinson (R-IA) introduced companion legislation in the House.

  • “We are facing a devastating fatherhood crisis in this country. Infant mortality rates are nearly two times higher for infants of single mothers and children who grow up without fathers are more likely to have behavioral and physical issues. Ensuring fathers are financially responsible for their child – both in the womb and once born – is an important step toward engaging fathers in family life so more children can grow up in happy and healthy homes and go on to be productive members of society.” – Congresswoman Hinson
