Today, Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH5) provided the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.
“Today, we celebrate life and all of those who are committed to protecting and defending the most innocent among us – the unborn,” said Latta. “The Supreme Court’s decision overturns the wrongly-decided Roe v. Wade case, which has led to the loss of tens of millions of lives. This decision rightly returns the power to protect the unborn to the states and to the voice of the people. It’s a momentous day for innocent life and one that should be celebrated. It’s never been more important to stand up for life and be a voice for the voiceless.”
Congressman Latta is unequivocally pro-life and has been a strong advocate for pro-life legislation. In the 117th Congress, he introduced two pieces of pro-life legislation: H.R. 4399, the Support and Value Expectant (SAVE) Moms and Babies Act, and H.R. 671, the Protecting the Dignity of Unborn Children Act. Along with his own legislation, Latta has cosponsored many pro-life bills throughout his tenure in Congress.
