Latta to Attend March for Life on Friday; Host Reception for Ohio Marchers

Washington, January 16, 2019 | Drew Griffin (202-225-6405)

Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) will attend this Friday’s March for Life rally on the National Mall and will be hosting a reception for marchers that make the trip from Ohio. Last year, more than 300 guests joined Latta for his reception held in the Rayburn House Office Building.

“Every year, I’m inspired by the number of people from Northwest and West Central Ohio that come to Washington to stand up for life,” said Latta. “As an unwavering supporter of pro-life policies, I look forward to joining the tens of thousands on the National Mall on Friday in support of our society’s most vulnerable.”

The reception held by Congressman Latta will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in 2168 Rayburn House Office Building.

This Congress, Latta has cosponsored a number of pro-life pieces of legislation including:

H.R. 219 – The No Abortion Bonds Act

Prohibits the use of federal tax-exempt bonds to finance construction of abortion clinics.

H.R. 490 – The Heartbeat Protection Act

Prohibits an abortion if an unborn child’s heartbeat is detectable.

H.R. 296 – The Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act

Amends the Public Health Service Act to prohibit the Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) from providing federal family planning grants to entities that perform abortions or provide funds to entities that perform abortions.

H.R. 305 – The Sanctity of Human Life Act

Defines human life as beginning at conception.

H.R. 369 – The Defund Planned Parenthood Act

Prohibits, for a one-year period, Planned Parenthood from accessing any federal mandatory or discretionary funds. Neither the parent company, its affiliates nor associated clinics, will be able to apply for or be reimbursed federal dollars unless they certify that they will not perform, or support other entities that performs, an abortion. The legislation authorizes $235 million to be reallocated to the thousands of comprehensive community health centers which do not perform abortions.
