WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) has earned an “A” rating for his commitment to protecting the lives of the unborn through his pro-life legislative record during the 117th Congress. The Susan B. Anthony List’s national scorecard recognizes lawmakers who have consistently championed life through their voting record and legislative leadership.
“Human life is precious, and that’s why I’ll continue to stand with Americans who are fighting to give a voice to the voiceless and defend the defenseless,” said Kennedy.
Kennedy has opposed using taxpayer money to fund abortions and voted against Democrats’ attempt to force states to legalize abortion up to the point of a child’s birth. He also helped lead an effort to defund Planned Parenthood.
Before the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Kennedy co-led the pro-life bicameral amicus brief in the case of June Medical Services v. Russo.
In addition, he has authored the Pregnant Women Health and Safety Act to protect the health of women and children and the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, which would make it a crime to abort a child based on his or her gender.
