WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released the following statement honoring the annual March for Life and reintroducing two of his pro-life bills, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act and Life at Conception Act.
“Today I proudly join thousands of you nationwide who are marching to celebrate life as well as defend the innocent,” said Dr. Paul. “Abortion providers like Planned Parenthood will tell you differently, but every single life matters, including the unborn. I was proud to force the Senate to vote on defunding this organization. Our nation cannot expect to fully protect and maintain our other rights if we do not respect the fundamental right to life even starting in the womb.”
The Defund Planned Parenthood Act would ensure federal tax dollars aren’t going to organizations, like Planned Parenthood, to perform abortions.
Cosponsors for the bill include Sens. Blackburn (R-TN), Braun (R-IN), Kennedy (R-LA), Marshall (R-KS), Rounds (R-SD), Tillis (R-NC).

The Life at Conception Act ensures the 14th Amendment protections on the right to life are truly guaranteed for all human beings, including the unborn in all stages of development.
Cosponsors for the bill include Sens. Blackburn (R-TN), Braun (R-IN), Cramer (R-ND), Crapo (R-ID), Daines (R-MT), Inhofe (R-OK), Kennedy (R-LA), Marshall (R-KS), Risch (R-ID), Rounds (R-SD), Scott (R-SC), Thune (R-SD), Wicker (R-MS).
