Congressman Alex Mooney: A Great Victory for America and the Pro-Life Movement

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, in a 6-3 decision, the United States Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade. This 1973 decision allowed for abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. An unborn child is a human life and today the Supreme Court took a gigantic step in protecting the most vulnerable. Now, the voters in each state will decide the laws related to abortion through their elected representatives. Congressman Mooney has stood up for the pro-life agenda and votes consistently to defend the lives of preborn babies.

“The Supreme Court’s decision is an unequivocal win for the pro-life movement and all preborn babies. There is no ‘right to abortion’ in the U.S. Constitution. The word ‘abortion’ is never even mentioned in the Constitution,” said Congressman Alex X. Mooney. “Respecting human life from the moment of conception until natural death is not simply a religious belief, it is a scientific fact that life begins at conception. As a result of today’s decision, millions of lives will be saved.”

Rep. Mooney has voted consistently to defend the lives of the preborn and serves as a champion for life in Congress. He has been a leader on pro-life legislation, introducing the “Life at Conception Act.” The bill codifies that life does indeed begin at the moment of conception and provides protections for the unborn under the 14th Amendment. Additionally, Congressman Mooney has co-sponsored the “Defund Planned Parenthood Act,” protecting taxpayer dollars to ensure they do not go to support the destruction of life. Recently, Rep. Mooney introduced the “Protecting Life in Health Savings Accounts Act.” This legislation ends the preferential tax treatment of abortion by prohibiting the life-taking procedure from being counted as an eligible medical procedure and excludes elective abortions from being paid for out of health savings accounts.
