COLUMBUS – State Rep. Jena Powell (R-Arcanum) today issued the following statement of support for the Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization case which was heard before the Supreme Court today:
“We know that life begins at fertilization. It is past time for the Supreme Court to acknowledge this scientific truth that we all know as fact. It is past time for babies in the womb to receive the sacred right to life. Every day, 2363 innocent unborn children are killed in the United States. We must act to stop this tragedy.
“This is why I am sponsoring The 2363 Act, in honor of the 2,363 children who are lost every day in our country due to the violence of abortion. I am proud to stand with the state legislators across this country who are fighting to protect the pre-born in our communities. The Court must return to the states the ability to protect and preserve the sanctity of human life. Abortion kills children, scars families and harms women. America must do better.”
