Students for Life Action Issues Scoring Alert on First Pro-Life Votes for 118th Congress

“With the start of a new Congress, we welcome the opportunity to see bipartisan support of life-saving legislation that can protect the preborn, women, and pro-lifers near and far from the abortion lobby,” said Dustin Curtis, SFLAction Vice President of Political Affairs & Operations. “These upcoming votes will be scored by SFLAction as we hold our legislators accountable from the state to federal level for protecting life in law and service.” 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (01-09-2023)Students for Life Action (SFLAction) called on Members of the U.S. House of Representatives to vote in favor of two upcoming pieces of pro-life legislation as well as a resolution that will be scored by the organization.

On behalf of nearly 1,400 pro-life student groups across the nation, SFLAction’s letter urged Members to vote in support of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act. In addition, the letter calls for the swift passage of H.Res.1233, a resolution expressing the sense of the House of Representatives condemning the recent attacks on pro-life facilities, groups, and churches.

“From addressing infanticide to ceasing taxpayer funding for abortion to defending the Pro-Life Generation from extreme attacks by the abortion lobby, this week’s cohort of legislation is a stark contrast against the anti-life agenda that has been engulfing Congress,” Curtis added.

This week, Reps. Wagner, Scalise, and Cammack will be reintroducing the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act which would ‘establish requirements for the degree of care a health care practitioner must provide in the case of a child born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion.’

SFLAction President Kristan Hawkins added, “The extremism of the Democratic Party leadership and the abortion lobby in opposing an end to infanticide shows how out of step they are with most Americans. It’s inhumane to stand by while children are allowed to die even as they survive an abortion, and we have the voices of those who have survived that horrific gauntlet allowing us to see the life and death stakes.”

Scoring these upcoming votes will prove to be a necessary tool for the Pro-Life Generation as Gen Z and Millennials lobby their legislators and educate their communities on how to #VoteProLifeFirst.
