Marriage and Life

The fundamental right to life is unalienable.  Abortion is one of the greatest injustices in our society today.  Since the misguided Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, over 58 million babies’ lives have been extinguished.  They had their futures ahead of them—birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own—rights endowed to them by their Creator—that were snuffed out due to fear, ignorance, coercion, or for the sake of convenience.  We must protect life and speak up for the unborn.  That is what I do in Congress.
 
Further, we know that life is made better with a loving, stable, and caring family.  Missourians have overwhelmingly voted to define marriage as the union between a man and a woman; and I support their right to define this issue.  I will continue champion marriage as the union of one man and one woman so every child has the opportunity to be loved and known by a mom and a dad.
 
I am also an committed supporter of adoption.  When I was a state representative I helped write and pass two major adoption reform bills in Missouri.  As a mother whose life has personally been blessed through adoption, I am proud to be a strong advocate for pro-adoption legislation in Washington so that all children will have a chance to be loved by a ‘forever family’.
 
Rest assured, I will do all I can to defend life and advance policies that promote life and family.
