Congressman Michael Guest taking a stand for the unborn in D.C.

By: Sarah Ulmer - January 17, 2019

Yesterday, Congressman Michael Guest (MS-03) Cosponsored H.R. 616 – The Life at Conception Act of 2019. This legislation would ensure that the unborn are entitled to legal protections by declaring that life begins at conception. This week he also signed a letter to President Trump encouraging him to veto any bill that would weaken existing pro-life protections that shield taxpayer funds from financing abortions. The letter thanks President Trump for his commitment to pro-life policies and promises to sustain the president’s veto of any bill that would weaken federal pro-life protections.

“This life-affirming legislation is a critical step in ensuring the right to life of our unborn children is secured and protected,” Guest said, “ I encourage Speaker Pelosi and our Democratic colleagues in control of the House of Representatives to allow this legislation be presented on the floor so that we can engage in a healthy discussion on the rights of the unborn.”

Guests letter shows a united commitment as Republics to give a voice to the unborn. He said every child deserves a chance at life.

“Thankfully, we have a president who shares our commitment to protecting the right to life of the unborn, and I’m happy to join my colleagues in taking this step to support policies that preserve the lives of our future generations,” said Guest.
