WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Mark Green announced his support for three pro-life pieces of legislation introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.

They are as follows:

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
    • The bill prohibits performing an abortion on an unborn baby who is 20 weeks gestational age or older (i.e. the period in which an unborn baby begins feeling pain)
  • Defund Planned Parenthood Act, H.R. 369
  • H.R. 296 that would amend title X of the Public Health Service Act
    • Prohibits family planning grants from being awarded to any entity that performs abortions

After becoming a co-sponsor of these three pro-life bills, Rep. Green said: “As a doctor and a soldier, I am trained to save lives and protect the innocent. That’s why I will do whatever is in my power to save lives -- including the unborn.”

On Friday, January 18th, pro-life Americans from across the country will commemorate Roe v. Wade’s 46th anniversary. The actual anniversary is January 22nd.
