Rokita Continues Fighting for Life


Washington, DC--Congressman Todd Rokita released the following statement regarding Indiana's abortion rate dropping for the eighth consecutive year.

"I believe we need to protect the rights of the unborn and we can never speak too strongly for those who cannot speak for themselves," said Congressman Todd Rokita. "Protecting life has long been a priority of mine and I am proud to see that our state's abortion rate has dropped for the eighth year in a row. This is an issue I have been leading on since my first day in public service. This year, I was proud to co-sponsor a bill that gave power to the states to stop taxpayer-funded abortion. I'm happy I supported this policy and saw it signed by President Trump because it will help to further decrease abortions in our state and our nation. I will continue to support policies that affirm life and show compassion towards women and their unborn children."
