The growing number of pro-life women in Congress demonstrates the growing consensus that opposition to abortion is part of a holistic platform to support women, Representative-elect Michelle Fischbach (R-Minn.) told Catholic News Agency in an interview this week.
“This is about being pro-woman, this is about helping women, about supporting women,” Fischbach said of the pro-life agenda, “not just telling them, ‘here, go kill your child.’ This is about making sure that they understand we will accept their child and support them. Being there to help them, to support them, saying, ‘this is a gift from God, let us help you,’ that’s being supportive.”
Eighteen women who ran on a pro-life platform were newly elected to Congress last month.
“This is a stellar group of members elect, there’s all kinds of wonderful experience, and I’m excited to have them as part of Congress,” Fischbach said.
