Senate Republicans Introduce Bill to Make June “Month of Life” to Celebrate Overturning Roe v. Wade by Steven Ertelt for Life News
GNN Note – That’s a celebration worthy of a month, unlike falsePride month that is currently celebrated in June. Why do Veterans not enjoy a month long celebration? You know, if we are told to celebrate sexual deviants (we DON’T in this house) for an entire month it only seems fitting to celebrate the Veterans of this country that make all celebrations possible. / END
In celebration of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, U.S. Senators Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) and eight of their Senate colleagues introduced a bill to designate June as the “Month of Life.”
“Every life is a precious gift from God,” said Rounds. “The sanctity of human life is something we should all work to protect. This legislation celebrates the historic victory for life with the Supreme Court ruling, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.”
“Protecting life and the most vulnerable among us is the most important charge of any society, and the recent landmark decision by the Supreme Court upholds that responsibility,” said Ernst. “My effort to mark June as the ‘Month of Life’ celebrates this major victory for the pro-life movement, one that will pave a path for countless innocent lives to be saved.”
Rounds and Ernst were joined by Senators Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), John Thune (R-S.D.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.).
Congresswoman Carol Miller (R-W.Va.) introduced similar legislation in the House of Representatives. March for Life and Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee support the effort.
As LifeNews reported, the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, with a 6-3 majority ruling in the Dobbs case that “The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion” — allowing states to ban abortions and protect unborn babies. The high court also ruled 6-3 uphold the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban so states can further limit abortions and to get rid of the false viability standard.
