Senators Isakson, Perdue Welcome Georgians To Capital For March For Life

“Every year, Georgians from all across the state make the journey to Washington to participate in the March for Life,” said Senator Isakson. “My staff and I appreciate the time and dedication that marchers show to the important cause of affirming human life and ensuring that unborn babies, who are the very example of the voiceless and helpless, are advocated for and remembered by our nation's legislators.”

“What a testament it is each year to see so many Georgians and Americans join together and March on Washington to protect unborn life,” said Senator Perdue. “We have a moral obligation to protect unborn life and to promote a culture that values life and protects the innocent, especially the unborn. Every child is a blessing, and I will keep fighting to advance pro-life legislation in the Senate.”

Senators Isakson and Perdue have both co-sponsored legislation that protects unborn life and safeguards unborn babies from unimaginable pain: the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act prevents late-term abortions for any reason except to save the life of the mother or in cases of rape or incest after 20 weeks of development, the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act requires any health professionals to provide children with the same care of any another child born alive at the same gestational age, and the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
