Latta joins Ohioans for National March for Life

Today, Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH5) joined thousands of pro-life supporters at the 2024 March for Life held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.. Latta also co-hosted a pro-life reception for Ohioans with members of the Ohio Congressional delegation.

“At a time when family values are marginalized and the sanctity of life is disregarded by some, it’s tremendous to see thousands of Ohioans and Americans across the country continue to come together to participate in the March for Life,” Latta said. “I strongly believe every human life is precious and we must work to build a culture of life in our communities. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to support meaningful, commonsense pro-life legislation as we continue the fight to protect and support moms, babies, and the unborn.” 

Latta’s pro-life legislative efforts:

·       The Support and Value Expectant (SAVE) Moms and Babies Act would prevent labeling changes, such as removing the Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS), for already approved abortion drugs. It would also prevent providers from ‘dispensing’ the drugs remotely, by mail, or via telemedicine, and would prevent the FDA from approving new chemical abortion drugs. Chemical abortions have the highest complication rate of available procedures and allowing chemical abortion drugs to be dispensed without an in-person appointment and ultrasound dramatically increases the risk to women.

·       The Protecting the Dignity of the Unborn Children Act would make it a federal crime to dispose of aborted baby body parts in landfills or in any navigable waters of the United States. 

U.S. House approved Latta backed pro-life measures:

·       The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require any health care practitioner who is present when a child is born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion to 1) exercise the same degree of care as reasonably provided to any other child born alive at the same gestational age, and 2) ensure that such child is immediately admitted to a hospital.

·       The Condemning the Recent Attacks on Pro-Life Facilities is a resolution to condemn violence perpetrated against pro-life facilities in the aftermath of the Dobbs decision. 

Latta cosponsored pro-life legislation during the 118th Congress:

·       The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act would prevent the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortion coverage through government programs.

·       Pharmacist Conscience Protection Act would provide a private right of action to for health care providers who refuse to store or fill a prescription for a drug intended to cause an abortion.

·       Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act would amend the Public Health Service Act to prohibit the Department of Health and Human Services from providing federal family planning grants to entities that perform abortions or provide funds to entities that perform abortions.
