Senator David Perdue: We Have A Moral Obligation To Protect Unborn Life

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and proud father and grandfather, released the following statement urging the Senate to advance two bills that protect life:

“We have a moral obligation to protect unborn life, and it is unconscionable that federal law currently permits unborn babies to feel such unimaginable pain. It is likewise reprehensible that we would even have to require doctors to save every newborn’s life. Every child is a blessing and I will keep fighting to advance pro-life legislation and promote a culture that values all life.”     

Senator Perdue co-sponsored both bills, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act, the Senate Judiciary Committee is working to advance today. These bills aim to protect life and safeguard unborn babies from unimaginable pain.
