Press Release

WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement regarding the upcoming anniversary of Roe v. Wade:

"Each and every life is precious. As we work to foster hope and opportunity for all Americans, we must continue to fight to protect the lives of unborn children. It is our responsibility to be a voice for the voiceless and to ensure our laws safeguard society's most vulnerable."

This week, Rep. Collins joined 168 of his House colleagues in sending a letter requesting President Trump commit to veto any bill that weakens current federal policy on abortion.

Rep. Collins is also an original cosponsor of pro-life legislation, including:

  • Defund Planned Parenthood Act, which prohibits funding for Planned Parenthood for one year and reallocates that funding to community health centers. 
  • Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which prohibits abortions past 20 weeks post-conception, when an unborn baby is able to feel pain.
  • No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which permanently prohibits taxpayer funding for abortions by codifying the Hyde Amendment.
