Ted believes every life is precious and every person is made in God’s image. Science tells us that each of us is unique from conception, and we all have an unalienable constitutional right to life and protection under the law. He’s proud of his 100% rating from National Right to Life and Susan B. Anthony List, because he is a conscience-driven advocate for the unborn.
Right now, America is tragically one of only seven countries in the world where elective, late-term abortion is legal after 5 months. To change that, Ted sponsored legislation that bans the gruesome procedure used in born-alive abortions and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which restricts late-term abortion for unborn children who can feel excruciating pain.
He’s fought to preserve the bipartisan Hyde Amendment, which prevented taxpayer funding for abortion since 1973. In the Senate, Ted will:
- Oppose activist judges and any court-packing attempt to expand the Supreme Court.
- Prohibit dangerous mail-order, do-it-yourself abortions.
- Defund Planned Parenthood.
