Congressman Biggs' Statement on Historic Low Abortion Rate
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last week, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention released a new report, showing that nationwide abortion rates have fallen to their lowest level since before Roe v. Wade. Abortion rates in Arizona dropped half of a percent during that timeframe. Congressman Biggs released the following statement:
“The latest abortion statistics are extremely encouraging. These numbers are a testament to the diligence of pro-life advocates across the country. They have poured their hearts into raising awareness of the devastation of abortion on families. I am pleased that Arizona is one of the most pro-life states in the nation, and our policies help decrease the abortion rate.
“The tide is turning. A new pro-life generation is committed to protecting our innocent, unborn children. We have an administration and U.S. Congress committed to a pro-life agenda. Our federal government is laying the foundation for Roe v Wade to be overturned by confirming Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court and remaking the federal judiciary with jurists who rely on the U.S. Constitution in making decisions. Congress must also assure that no taxes are given to Planned Parenthood. We have serious momentum, and I am pleased to stand with life in the 115th Congress.”
