"I believe strongly that we should do all we can as a society to protect the sanctity of life, which unquestionably begins at conception."
As Christian and father of four, I know that there is no gift more precious than a child’s life. That is why I am an outspoken advocate for protecting the rights of the unborn in Louisiana and across the nation.
No hardworking American should ever worry that their tax dollars may be used to fund organizations that rob us of God’s greatest gift.
As your Representative in Congress, I will defend the strongly held moral beliefs of my constituents. Life is not a policy issue; life is a fundamental and unalienable right. Louisiana has been a champion of life for decades, and I will continue to be an ally in that fight.
In the U.S. House of Representatives, my voting record clearly reflects my lifelong pro-life conviction. During my first few weeks in Congress I have voted in support of legislation prohibiting federal funding for insurance coverage that includes abortion, permitting states to withhold funding from healthcare facilities that perform abortions. I am also a co-sponsor of legislation that would permanently defund Planned Parenthood.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA), a cosponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, issued the following statement on the bill’s passage.
“The Pain-Capable Act creates greater protections for the unborn and restricts late-term abortions. Life is a fundamental and unalienable right, and this bill would give millions of unborn children a chance to live. I am a strong supporter of pro-life priorities and will always vote to protect the unborn.”
