Rep Bradley Byrne, joined Martha Roby and others throughout the nation commemorating the 46th anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision and the March for Life today by reaffirming his commitment to pro-life policies. He said,

The sanctity of human life is immeasurable. Since I have been in Congress, I have consistently stood up for the unborn, and I continue to stand up for life. I am proud hundreds of Alabamians, most of them young people, are in our nation’s capital today to stand up for life as part of the March for Life. Those who support pro-life causes support American values, allowing all the opportunity for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, nearly 61 million abortions have been carried out in the United States. That is absolutely unacceptable. I remain dedicated to doing everything I can to ensure we defund Planned Parenthood, permanently end taxpayer funding of abortion, overturn Roe, and ensure all lives are protected.

Byrne also tweeted a video version of this message against abortion.

In a press release today, Byrne listed the pro-life actions he has taken just this year.

  • Re-joined the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus;
  • Sponsored H.R. 369 –the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2019, which would place a one-year moratorium on federal funding to Planned Parenthood and increase funding to community healthcare centers that do not perform abortions but provide more comprehensive care;
  • Sponsored H.R. 490 –Heart Beat Protection Act, which bans abortion after a detectible heartbeat;
  • Sponsored H.R. 616 – the Life at Conception Act, which defines that human life begins at conception;
  • Sponsored the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), which prohibits sex-selective abortions while protecting women upon whom sex-selective abortions have been performed;

Signed a letter to President Trump asking him to veto any funding bill that weakens pro-life protections and any bill that weakens federal policy on abortion.

In addition to his video message, Byrne has tweeted other pro-life messages today.

The March for Life is the world’s largest pro-life event, during which more than 100,000 attendees march in Washington, DC.
