Washington - Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement expressing his support for The Protect Life Act (H.R. 358):
“Life is precious – that includes the life of the unborn. One of the principle tasks of the government is to protect the lives of those who are unable to safeguard themselves. As it stands now, ObamaCare does not bar the use of taxpayer money to heartlessly take an unborn child’s life. The Protect Life Act will amend ObamaCare to prevent the use of federal funding funneled to abortion or abortion coverage.”
Congressman Louie Gohmert is the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, Louie was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas. He also served as Chief Justice of Texas'12th Court of Appeals.
