Sanctity of Human Life
The United States has always been a compassionate nation that cherishes innocent human life at all stages of development, from conception to natural death. Tragically, judicial activists on the Supreme Court manufactured an interpretation of the Constitution allowing abortion in the 1973 case of Roe v. Wade, resulting in the death of millions of unborn children every year.
Congressman McHenry is a champion of pro-life causes in the House of Representatives and will fight to foster a culture of life for all Americans. This includes defending the ban on partial birth abortion, fighting any effort to legalize euthanasia, and supporting efforts to reduce abortions and increase adoptions.
Patrick McHenry is co-sponsoring the Sanctity of Human Life Act, defining human life as beginning at conception; the Right to Life Act, guaranteeing constitutional rights to the unborn; the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, making it illegal to transport a minor across state lines for the purpose of circumventing state parental notice laws; and the Adoption Tax Relief Guarantee Act, expanding the adoption tax credit and adoption assistance programs.
