Defending the Sanctity of Life
Dr. Gosar believes that life is the most fundamental right recognized by the Declaration of Independence. He is an adamant support of the sanctity of human life and believes that life begins at conception. Dr. Gosar has voted with the National Right to Life Committee on every single vote during his tenure in Congress and has earned a lifetime 100% rating.
Tragically, nearly 60 million lives have been aborted since the passage of Roe v. Wade. Dr. Gosar believes that Congress must do more to protect the innocent and to defend life.
Dr. Gosar cosponsored and voted for the Defund Planned Parenthood Act, legislation, which redirects precious resources for women’s health to community health centers and terminates all federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
Dr. Gosar cosponsored and voted for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, legislation that explicitly prohibits late term abortions after 20 weeks.
Paul cosponsored and voted for the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that creates criminal penalties for practitioners and individuals who don’t provide immediate care to children born alive.
Dr. Gosar cosponsored and voted for the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, legislation that ensures no federal funds may be used for abortions.
Paul also voted for H.R. 3762, Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, legislation that redirected precious resources for women’s health to community health centers, terminated all federal funding for Planned Parenthood, and defunded harmful provisions of Obamacare.
In the fiscal year 2017 appropriation’s process, Rep. Gosar submitted multiple pro-life initiatives including: prohibiting all funds for Planned Parenthood, eliminating elective abortion coverage under the Multi-State Plan Program, prohibiting abortion funding for illegal aliens that have been detained, prohibiting FDA approval for creating genetically modified human embryos, and seeking inclusion of the Health Care Conscience Rights Act.
Dr. Gosar will continue to do everything in his power to protect the rights of the unborn and defend life.
