    WASHINGTON, D.C. – “Roe was a great injustice to both the unborn and our Constitution for 49 years, and I sincerely hope the Court continues in this direction when the final decision is released. I have been a staunch fighter for the right to life for decades. As a member of Congress, I will continue to defend the lives of unborn children against any effort by the Democrats to attack the right to life,” “With that said, I believe a complete, thorough investigation into the source of this leak is...

    – Click here to watch the full clip – TRANSCRIPT: “Since 1973, more or less 50 years, there have been estimated some 60 million babies aborted in the United States - an unbelievable number. I am fully convinced that Roe v. Wade is unconstitutional, certainly morally reprehensible. And scientifically, it's just inaccurate. We obviously know from science that an unborn baby is a human being. In fact, at five weeks, the baby has a heartbeat. At 10 weeks, it has arms, legs, fingers, and toes. By 15... Read more

    Washington Examiner By Rep. Jody Hice September 23, 2021 There has been a wave of fearmongering and scare tactics from the Left since Texas passed the Heartbeat Act, which allows an individual or organization to sue a doctor for performing an abortion if an unborn baby has a heartbeat or if the physician fails to check for one.

    It should come as no surprise that the media misleads through pithy soundbites and flashy headlines on a daily basis. We’ve all seen it and, maybe, on occasion, fallen victim to this misinformation. Rhetoric matters. It determines the outcome of debates and shapes public perception of key policy issues. However, one of the greatest deceptions that has been put before the public is the idea that “pro-life” is synonymous simply with “anti-abortion.” When searching for “pro-life,” the Google resul...

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
